Isotope Site - now with more tasty treats!

 

Design for Isotope:

I chose to make my isotope site fit to my personal design tastes rather than just do a mockup. I achieved this with subtle colors and a letterpress look to the background and site title. The use of true black has been kept to a minimum and there are subtle coloring cues on the nav buttons and the extreme roundness of the original nav buttons has been removed.

 

Critique:

Critique of Joan Lam’s Assignment 4.

Joan’s recreation for the Four Seasons hotel is simplistic and appears that it would be easy to navigate. I like the main image she used as well as the script text for the word “Welcome”. I like the gallery of images below the featured image also, they look like they would create a dynamic homepage experience.

 

As far as suggestions are concerned:

  • Move the “Book Now” call to action to upper right or left? Maybe make it a different color?
  • Move site nav from the bottom of page to the top for ease of use
  • Add a highlight to current homepage image in slide gallery? To show active state.
  • Left justify main description paragraph – add bullet points
  • Center copyright and legal info on footer
