“Microcosm” in a Web Site

The Right Background

An opportune background in this kind of web site is essential, at least for two main reasons: to give the right context at the illustration and to make a good back-image for the layout elements and so to structure a readable contents. In some cases the illustrative power of the design is in background image.
We can see some solutions in the following image.

Typography

The use of big typography is a frequent trend in modern web design. In many websites of this list (especially when the design is for portfolio, agency and company sites) we’ll notice big font size of design elements to communicate the principal message of the website.

In some other examples of this list there is a “normal” use of typography, but always to make a clear and direct message in a clean web design.

Animations

When some elements of design are “alive”, such as the birds in Tori’s Eye or the airplane in Marjeting Informatico, can be made a direct interaction with the visitor. The animation is often in flash, but a nice use of javascript is a concrete solution to animate your design (in the bottom of the article you can find a list of resources in which there is also some plugins for the animations in web design).
