I have met Russell Heistuman at a local Marketers Meeting, he’s a skilled graphic designer with over 20 years under his belt. His company website’s design looks amazing, so elegant and professional, it is a real inspiration piece. All though the entire website is worth taking notes on, I’d like to feature the header and the footer, because they are the two elements that really stand out for me.
Russell is all about identity and on his website, it follows through. The website look reflects the look of the business card that I got from him. The logo is awesome, form the faint gray background, Spirograph design with a colorful 8 point star in the middle, to the transparent box to the top-right with the company name inside. That Spirograph design in the background, although subtle, really adds depth to the design.
The other element I really like is the footer. Again, the design follows through, the Spirograph part of the logo with the colorful star is set on the bottom-right this time to balance out the page design. The colors, the fonts, it all works together to bring forth this beautiful design.
Awesome website Russell!
P.S. Thanks to Anrkist for pointing out what that Spirograph design is called. I knew there had to be a name for it but really didn’t know what to call it.
