I can't get tired looking at beautiful and simple compositions. More and more the web is bringing back the classic principles of good graphic design with attention to typography and grid systems. Besides that it seems that the web is graduating from the phase where everything should be above the fold, where density is better than well organized and spaced out compositions. My goal with this post is to illustrate some more examples but also to pick some of them and attempt to recreate in HTML/CSS/JS in the next couple of weeks as a way to exercise not only my design but my coding skills as well.
I'm a Brazilian product designer based in Oakland, California currently working for Google as a Staff Designer. I am also the founder of Abduzeedo, an award-winning digital publication about design and a personal project that has become the source of inspiration for millions of designers and enthusiasts.
I love clouds, I know it sounds weird but I always loved to admire the clouds formation, the depth, colors and dimensionality that they create in the sky. I used to create a bunch of artwork and in the end I always added some clouds texture to give a bit more realism.
