Link Index Mock-ups

Two quick Photoshop mock-ups, one light, the other dark. I’m most intrigued by the dark.

I’m always in the midst of redesigning my website. I’m not sure I’ve ever felt like it truly represents my full intentions, no matter how much time I sink into it. There’s always some objective I can’t quite achieve, either due to time or the skill required. I have been thinking about the idea of sectioning my site into four major groupings and representing each of those sections of the site with a different primary display face. Today I mocked-up a couple ways that idea might function as a home page.

The four links (projects, blog, courses, and about) would get stuck in each of the four corners on the sub-pages, but wouldn’t actually appear here on the index. That’s the idea at least, even though I didn’t really represent that in these mock-ups (must’ve overlooked it).

The thought crossed my mind that the index page could actually be black instead of white, so on a whim, I tried it. I think it would look pretty good with CSS transitions applied to the background color, effectively making it fade in and out. Of course, it’s just an idea, and finding the time to actually build the concept is going to be a challenge.
