I am currently completing my graphic design studies at Design Centre Enmore (the best place to study graphic design in Sydney, in my opinion). Our year was asked to design a new website for the graphic design department. They were after a conceptual design that was more than just the standard linear web design with a navigation containing “about” “gallery” and “application”. I wanted something fun and interactive, and decided to focus on the student’s work. I devised a grid containing duo tone buttons of samples of our work, with some revealing letters to spell out words and others revealing the student’s full work.
And guess what… my site won! It is now the official website of Design Centre Enmore and I am very chuffed. Check it out http://www.dcegraphicdesign.org/.
Here are some screenshots from the live site:
The user was initially met with a grid of green duotone rollover boxes featuring samples of students work.
Once the user begins mousing around the grid, they start to reveal letters in some places and full colour versions of the work in others.
After exploring the site the user discovers the text “Graphic Design @ DCE”
The remaining thumbnails can be clicked on and a full version of the student’s work opens up in a lightbox. There are also external links to our social media profiles such as Twitter and Facebook, and important documents such as the application form included in the thumbnails.
I’ve had really positive feedback from designers and non-designers alike saying they had a lot of fun interacting with the site. I had a lot of fun making it!
