Lean Angles Blog Design

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

I built and launched a blog and podcast I have branded Lean Angles. It covers the world of motorcycles, specifically sportbikes and road racing. This is a project I have been planning and working on over the past 18 months, spending any spare moments of down time finding and modifying a WordPress template, designing the logo, defining the brand identity and generating content for the site. Here is the design and a couple of the options I came up with.

The finished blog can be found at Lean-Angles.com

Lean Angles Blog Pre-launch landing page

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

I have been building a blog and podcast I have branded Lean Angles. Aiming to launch the site in June (which is rapidly fading) I had to get a branded pre-launch landing page up so I could begin to generate some buzz around it. Here is the design and the options I came up with. It uses all my own photography so rights are not an issue.

Design updates to the website

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

This week I have been making some design updates, well really completions actually, as these were meant to be done months ago when the site was built. Funny how some things get put on the backburner and just end up living there.

Well I’m happy to finally have addressed these, at least in design form. I’m going to be tackling the coding this week to get everything in place. Before too long I may actually have a complete website. And then what will I do.

New Website Design : Feedback Requested

Friday, September 26th, 2008

It’s been a long time since Influxx Media got a fresh lick of digital paint. This has been a long time coming. So finally, between bouts of real paying jobs, we are updating the website and the content.

I’m treating this like a real job, disregarding budget of course, because there is no budget. But I am treating myself like I am my client, asking myself all the usual questions designers delve into with their clients.

I created two alternative look and feels based upon the same content requirements, rather than just design something I might like. But the problem here is that I still cant give myself subjective feedback. So I am turning to my friends in the community to offer honest critique and feedback.

What do you like, dislike? What works? Is it easy to find your way around the page? Is it balanced correctly? Which aesthtics do you like?

I’d really like participation here, so any quick thoughts (I don’t need an essay) would be sincerely appreciated.

Many thanks for playing

Influxx Website Redesign : Home Version 1

Influxx Website Redesign : Home Version 1

Rationale:

This design speaks to the more artistic side of my nature, with elements of organic painterly feeling. I tried to acheive a rich, warm layered environment that was very textured and inviting. The nav is large and prominent, but the centerpiece is the large media bucket front and center that will pull a random FLV video from the project vault.

Influxx Website Redesign : Home Version 2

Influxx Website Redesign : Home Version 2

Rationale:

This design is in a more typical and modern style, with a tech, blog minimalist feeling. Keeping colors neutral overall lets the reds and yellow from my brand style jump out. The nav is large and simple, and the focal point is the large media bucket that will play a random project FLV video.
