First off just a small update or should I say realisation ?:-) I’ve had the idea to re-design my website for a long time now (which has been 2 weeks) and so far I’ve just narrowed down the pages I want to display and a creating a brief wireframe of how I want the site to look. Before I continued any further I thought to pause and invest in a little reflection. I came to the conclusion that this would be perfect opportunity for me to develop my skills and learning more about web design and development, and so I bought The Principles of Web Design by Jason Beaird
So far, the book is being very helpful..it’s pretty novice in the beginning but now it’s beginning to talk about wireframing. I think I’m going to finish reading the book before I continue with any practical re-design of my website. I’m pretty excited to complete reading the book so that I can then put the knowledge into practice. (NOTE TO SELF: Write review on book!)
Digressing, I’ve always been fascinated by typography and the messages they portray. Take these images for example:
I am just amazed how creative this is, I’ve taken the liberty to Google this and provide some tutorials and further examples:
Yes, I know some of them are repeated on other pages but nonetheless they all have different examples that you might find useful. I really want to give this a go, so when I do, I’ll be sure to post up my result(s).
Hope you enjoyed this post.
