The main thing that i liked about this design company’s website is that it is simple and clean and you can see and get around the site clearly and easily. I like the whole idea of showing some of your work on the home page and i will be doing that on my site so that people get a glimpse of what to expect when they click on my site. Also in my site, i would like to lay my work out like this in the gallery/portfolio section, with the category and then the work I’ve done inside that category as well as keeping it clean and easy to see whats going on. The only problem with this site is that it is a little bit too boring for a design company’s site because for a design company/ portfolio site, you would expect something cool to look at instead of just images and little text but as it is meant to be a portfolio website, showing the images perfectly is the main priority.

This design company website is my favourite out of the lot because of the uniqueness that is applied in this design work for the site and by this i mean that all the links are not where you would expect them, all of the links are in the big space of lettering on the left hand site and all the links that the site has to offer are all highlighted within that piece of big text. Within the text, you can see that it makes sense and is theoretically easy to navigate around. I would like to implement something unique like this into my site as i find this type of stuff in website intriguing and cool.

I really like this clean and simple style for a portfolio website. The reason i like this type of block format is that i find it more effective to look at and navigate around the site as well as i like the simplicity in putting a picture of what the box leads to relevant like that the links to vimeo and the store uses relevant imagery for the user to click on to go to a different page. With my site i was thinking about for the main design layout, i would use squares or rectangles in the site to showcase stuff on my site of what they are going to see.

I like this website design because it is different compared to most website and the reason i like it is because its a raw photo of the room that the people in this design company work at and it has been edited. This site is easy to navigate through and i would like to do something like this, like get a raw image i took and edit it so that people can interact with the image itself and would be able to click links that are in the image.

i don’t really like this design that much as its not nice to look at although it is clean and simple, i just don’t think this type of style for a design company’s website would be ideal. Some of the reason that i don’t like this design is that i don’t like the way there are white lowered opacity boxes with black text in them on top of an image of the artist’s work. Although i prefer the whole gallery/portfolio layout as i think its simple and sophisticated as well as it looks nice and it tells you what the work is about.
