I really look for simplicity in my designs. It doesn’t matter if that happens to be code or print, the best and most effective designs are the ones that make everything look simple.
This is why I really like the inspiration of Poetry and Code. I don’t have to mess around on his site to understand what he is looking for. He adheres to an audience that values that simplicity to find his work and have a good understanding of it. I really like how it is almost like a powerpoint in his presentation but still allows us to outsource to many different website themes as well.
One thing I was really impressed by is the navigation bar. While it is interactive it is also more of a pop up aspect than another page to the website. It played off of his idea of simplicity but gave it a new flare to look into. I also liked the animation that he gave his home page to stand out from a static page. I’d really like to add something like this interactions to my own upcoming sites and figure out how to do something like this.
