Blog 3: Marie Claire

I’m not one to frequent a lot of fashion blogs but I thought Marie Claire does a very simplistic job of using CSS to their advantage. Most of the transitions they install are very subtle yet very effective to show viewers what they are using. The photos and text allow the user to click on them to transfer them to the link. They use either a bright blue color change for the text of the black overlay for the photo and it makes the transitions easy to follow. The borders allow the photos and clickable references to stand out from other less important articles that the magazine want to highlight. Divides are also used mainly on the top of the page so that the designers can section things off to draw attention to certain events, like the Oscars.

I am a current Journalism and English major at the University of Missouri. Hopefully I will be able to learn a little about creativity through this blog through photography, writing and maybe a couple other things while I'm at it.
