Almost a year ago, 12/31/2009 to be more precise, I wrote my first article here at WDL, Headers and Footers that Grab You Coming and Going . So now, 11 months and 47 articles later, I decided to do a new showcase of headers and footers to inspire you. Headers and footers are extremely important in web design, as we mentioned last year, they are powerful sections of a website and it’s very important that you take good care of them while putting together your site.
Typography is certainly a very important aspect of web design. So choosing the proper typography for your site is for sure a huge step of the design process. You can have a simple and delicate typo, a huge and strong one, you can also go colorful and crazy or light and smooth. From simple headers to whole ‘typed’ layouts, we have selected some good examples of typography to show here.
Whether you’re taking the subtle approach or using a lot of it, texture is an excellent way to add depth and interest to a web design. Last week we posted some free texture packs for you to use in your design, but this week we’re looking to give you some inspiration when it comes to using texture. From subtle scratches and grain to heavy paper textures, you’ll see a wide variety of texture uses in this collection.
Directeur artistique londonien, John Paul Thurlow a eu l’idée de reproduire à sa manière et avec sa griffe les couvertures de magazines qu’il affectionne. Ce projet, entamé il y a maintenant plusieurs années, a 2 ambitions, la première est de rendre hommage aux acteurs de ces magazines et la seconde, est d’utiliser un produit réalisé à des milliers d’exemplaires, la couverture de magazine, pour en faire un objet d’art unique. Ultime volonté, celle de recréer la couverture originale tout en laissant des imperfections ou en ajoutant sa petite touche personnelle. Pari réussi, l’ensemble de ses créations est un succès! <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Charlie Haughey was drafted into the US Army in October of 1967. He was 24, and had been in college in Michigan before running out of money and quitting school to work in a sheet metal factory. The draft notice meant that he was to serve a tour of duty in Vietnam, designated a rifleman, the basic field position in the Army. After 63 days in Vietnam, he was made a photographer, shooting photographs for the Army and US newspapers, with these instructions from the Colonel: “You are not a combat photographer. This is a morale operation.

Below, we take a look at 30 stunning examples of Japanese design, from shop interiors to vending machines, toys to fancy dress costumes, web sites to packaging, and architecture to clothing. Japanese design is so fascinating because it’s wildly different to that which we’re used to seeing in the west. What’s more, it’s extremely varied, with sleek, minimal, futuristic creations on one side and super-cute, smiley, humorous designs on the other. The Japanese are also famous for the wackiness of their ideas and if that kind of thing floats your boat, you’ll find plenty of the like in this article, the Coca Cola robot being a prime example! We would love to hear some feedback, so please comment below.
