The beginning of the week is always tough. Coffee breaks are tedious. The aftermath of weekend is still evident. And conversations with your colleagues aren’t that enlightening. Yet there is always a number of tasks you need to get done until the end of the day. To spark your imagination and help you to get through monday’s creativity block we are going to provide you every monday with “Monday Inspiration”-posts — brief pointers to appealing design approaches, interesting ideas and unusual solutions.
Today’s monday inspiration is all about some really colorful pages. Be prepared for some extreme colors.
Kashiwa Satos Tempest of Colors is actually a design portfolio. The Japanese designer has chosen a quite unusual way to exhibit his skills — instead of boring screenshots Kashiwa Sato presents color palettes used in his projects. In fact, he does it in a quite excessive manner on almost every page.
The color combinations are, however, not just placed before the actual site description. The whole portfolio is built in Flash, and all color palettes are moving with different speed, thus creating a quite unusual visual experience. Caution: the portfolio is indeed quite unusual and strange and as such not recommended for very sensitive (you’ve been warned) or epileptic people.
Well, Klaus Mitteldorf’s Portfolio is really creepy. At least it has a very creepy intro. So better don’t turn up your loudspeakers. The site is not only extremely colorful, it turns out to be really terrible if your cursor touches the links. Flash-based, of course.
Raquel Falkenbach‘s art could be considered as ugly. But there are so many colors and it perfectly fits to this post.
