Designing a website with a fluid, large background

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 13/03/2009

A closer look into the design method to create large background websites.
I was making a mock-up for a new website and started with an illustration. Sometimes an illustration can take a lot of attention so I decided to use a white body content and use the illustration as a background image. So here is my experience with the design and the xhtml + css design.

A webdesign brief document for every website

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 27/02/2009

It’s no luxury to make a document for every website that you design. A document with a design description. Before starting a webdesign project, a webdesigner collects lots of information. You get a lot of information in your mailbox (clients tend to send you everything by e-mail), you receive a logo, a brochure and text for the webdesign, that’s about it. Over the years, I collected everything nicely in a folder with the name of the client. I still work this way but I add a design brief to every project now. The client receives also a copy of this document. It’s important information, my clients use this document for marketing material that they afterwards (after the launch of their website) need to order.

Choosing harmony colors from a logo

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 11/12/2008

Every other day around 6 pm, I receive an e-mail from Layers Magazine with 1 Illustrator or Indesign tip or trick for the day.
