LILLE IDÉ TIL ET T-SHIRT DESIGN

On 4. April 2011 by Munch

Har gået længe og leget med tanken om at få lavet nogle t-shirts som både kunne sælges billigt her på bloggen, og smide et par stykker afsted i en konkurrence i ny og næ. Men det kræver lidt at jeg finder ud af præcis hvad jeg vil have lavet. Og får en idé om folk overhoved er interesseret i det. Men her er en lille idé jeg kom på, ud fra det billede jeg lavede i nat.

grey HVORDAN BLEV GROOVESHARK LOGO TIL

Grooveshark kender de fleste musikkyndige folk til her på nettet. Det er stedet hvor man kan lave playlister osv. lidt ligesom youtube. Det fungerer rigtig godt og er bestemt et besøg værd hvis I ikke allerede kender til det.

Men hvordan er Grooveshark kommet frem til den identitet som de har valgt?
Helvetic Brands har lavet en lille case om hvordan de har udviklet Groovesharks identitet, med logo idéer. Det giver en meget god idé i hvordan sådan en proces kan forekomme.

2011 WEB DESIGN TRENDS IFØLGE DZINEBLOG.COM

On 9. March 2011 by Munch

Her er 10 ting der viser hvad trenden inden for web designs i 2011 bliver. Og jeg må give dem ret i at det giver meget god mening. De fleste af punkterne er noget vi allerede arbejder med til dagligt, men der er også et par nye. Det giver stof til eftertanken!

1. Use Larger Logos

At one time, splash pages were extremely popular. But then so were man-bags, and both are not much in demand today! Why not use an over sized logo to end up with the feel of a splash page? You could get the same effect with a larger than normal header design. YES, we are saying you could make the logo as large as half of the screen size! If you wish for a better overall UX, this is the way to go.

2. Keep it Simple

Simple themes have been around for quite some time already, what with big names like facebook and twitter having influenced users with the ‘less is more’ train of thought. A large number of media sites today follow in their footsteps, using a lot of blank spaces on their design templates. The idea is to have the opposite of a cluttered design. The modern mantra is to do away with left-nav and right-nav and keep the user as occupied as possible on page content rather than distractions! Blank space on a design can later always be used to offer advertising space if your site kicks off big time.

3. Lose the Flash

Gone are the days when Flash animations were the pride of a web site. Today’s users have had more than enough of animations eating up their bandwidth! Yes Flash is a versatile tool than can give you some great display options. But it also increases the page load time on your site, and today’s Internet users are losing patience like never before. You have maybe two seconds to impress a first time user on your site! Further, flash animations do NOT play on many mobile devices, and we all know how important this has become in 2010. People want web pages they can access with ease on their phones and I Tablets today!

4. Ever thought of spending MORE time on Typography?

This can probably be defined as one of the most important emerging design rends. It is also probably one of the tricky ones! Designers would need to learn about trends and follow some kind of logical pattern to match their font sizes and modifying them appropriately to fit into the design template esthetically. Typography has been observed to be the MAIN influencing factor that attracts a fresh visitor to a site for the first time! If you get this most important factor WRONG, you can imagine what the impact could be.

5. Social Media Rules

Today, if your blog does not have an integration feature with social media sites like facebook and twitter, you are losing out on a huge chunk of web traffic. A simple facebook ‘like’ button can lead to multiplying your web traffic many times! Today’s Internet user wants to be a part of a community, and does NOT want to take YOUR word for it simply because you are a blogger! They want to know what their peers feel about your so called expertise! Yes, you could call it the heard mentality spilling over to the Internet, but if it works, it works!

6. Go Mobile

Is your site accessible on mobile devices, and if it is, does it function optimally? 2010 saw mobile devices getting cheaper to buy and easier to use. We can only imagine this trend spilling over into 2011, and people are going to be wanting to stay online through various devices, be it a mobile phone or a iPad or I-tablet. If you are not thinking mobile yet, believe us, your competitors are, and they will probably get ahead of you even if you run a better site – simple because your site may not be easily accessible over a mobile phone!

7. Think Magazine Design

Magazine layouts were of course, originally made for mobile devices such as the iPad. However, users have gotten to like the simplicity of these designs and thus the design templates are now getting popular on the web as well. A sleek and glossy feel of a magazine template can really hit the right chords with a user. Think bold fonts, loads of sub headers, definitely lots of images, numerous articles and text; making it so much more inviting for a user to wish to read. think magazine layout, think more users, and think hard work!

8. Larger than usual Logos

This may sound like our first point, but it isn’t the same. Why not use the logo and header to grab people’s attention? After all, the logo is one of the most important elements of the visual identity of a company. If the company you are designing for already has a well known logo, enhance the size slightly to grab the attention of the average user. This can work especially well if the company is looking to revamp their corporate identity. Unless they are changing the logo altogether, the presence of it in a bold fashion can reassure the users that they are on the right site, and it provides a reassuring feeling to a customer accustomed to the site. it rings a familiar bell somewhere!

9. Hand Drawn Designs

Think less geometrical and more manual is what we mean by this. Why not try an entirely new design template by hand drawing your design outlines? If you have a stylus for this, nothing like it!

10. Pinpointing Typography

Getting the perfect typography could well be the biggest challenge designers may face in 2011. Why not spend a little more effort by making your own fonts for the design? It gives a very professional and individual touch, speaking of your skills as a true professional.
