Web Design Critique: Forty Seven Media

forty-seven-media-design-critique

This design critique features the Forty Seven Media website.

The style is colourful, fresh and bright, a creative voice with a dash of rock attitude. Their use of texture gives the design a sense of depth and warmth, and their colour palette has a antiquity that they have some how married to retro. A carefully planned mish-mash of styles, that balances style with a focus on the content.

The bold homepage features a large photo of the founders John & Nate, a very personal and warm greeting; with their touch of rock n roll geek culture; this will divide opinion and sift out clients that share their cultural message. You know what your getting your self into working with these guys!

My favourite part of Forty Seven Media design is their main call to action, a retro shield that boldly states “DONT HIRE US” , “find out why”. Get the viewers attention with an unexpected revers proposition statement. It’s clever, and I bet it works.

Web Design Critique: Brande07

This weeks web design critique is Brande07 by Rob Palmer. Beautifully clean mix of cool blues and well polished surfaces creates a relaxed and crafted feel. Rob obviously loves birds (Puffins) as theres illustrations of them everywhere. The attention to detail sets this design apart, lets discuss.
