After checking out current website trends from 2010 and 2011 I found that I responded most to specialized typography, use of oversized photography as a background, illustrated background, fixed positioning of elements, bold colors, textures, layers, and the hand-drawn look. The following websites are among some of my favorites that I have recently discovered as inspiration! I especially love Analogue’s image for their homepage, Social Design House’s intro video, and the hand-drawn imagery in Steedicons.
I am absolutely in love with these poster designs by Ty Mattson for the Showtime series Dexter. The colors, the illustration style, and the fantastic job Ty did of showing the key aspects of each season is what makes these posters a success! Below is a a mock-up of a DVD case, a couple posters, one of his initial sketches, and a video showing how he created the designs.
Some really great videos promoting a language school. The cinematography, music, and typography are both very eye-catching.
