Today I have looked at a website that is simple in it’s design and minimalistic in the layout and design.
The only colour seen is the bold green statement from one of the headings and the start page’s image. One is a solid tonal colour, whilst the other is going through different hews from light to dark, I think this colouring is really nice and sets a good starter for the website.
When the viewer has clicked on a link, the typeface will change colour which allows the navigation to be easy and simple to follow. Wouldn’t lose my place on here!
Although the set is clear and precise, I can’t help but wonder if the text should be darker, as the light tone for myself makes it harder to see without squinting.
While navigating through the images it is a simple task, where you click on a certain title and you choose between the numbered images to view them and the relevant text that goes through them. Speaking of the images they are of high quality with little graining and a bright colour and right contrast. I can not see any blurring or unfocused with these pictures which is a good idea to have.
Under the second heading, we find ourselves being drawn in by the artist statement which reflects her personal judgement on her work, this gives the viewer the ability to see from the artists point of view about the works they will have seen/will be seeing.
There is only a short paragraphs worth of biography with this artist, I would of expected a bit more, about more of her degrees and where they have studied or what they have learnt. Although it is a good idea to insist we contact the artist for further information, I myself would be in a predicament of what to actually ask the artist and how to go about it.
The idea of having a link that tells you all the places the artist has publicized their work is an interesting way for the viewer to put their work in context and delivering a further interest into the artists work. This gives the opportunity to view gallery exhibits with the links provided also it can give possible visitors the chance to see if the artist is showing and where.
Also available on the website is a way where visitors can access their email accounds and email the artist with any further information about art or other information they wish to subscribe to.
Overall I like the layout and the simplicity of the website, it is easy to navigate and able to get all the information without trouble.
