The Stylish Typography Evokes Nostalgia And Elegance But Also Ensures The Copy Is Easy To Digest
After discussing the dramatic and imaginative use of color, we have to evaluate the website’s rich typography as well.
An extra bold serif font, combined with scarce minimalist geometric shapes and filtered visuals ticks every rule in the book of modern design trends. However, it simultaneously evokes a certain level of retro aesthetics found in classical Hollywood movie posters.
The typography hits that sweet spot between being inviting and sophisticated. It makes the website as a whole attractive and comprehensible at the first glance, making it one of the best designed portfolios we’ve witnessed in a long time.
Amanda Braga Website Design Uses A Sleek, Simple And Intuitive Navigation Menu To Help Visitors Find Exactly What They Want
To help visitors navigate through the website, or rather, a very long homepage, the menu is simplistic, sticky, effective and legible. The single-column layout doesn’t overwhelm the visitors and comes across as straightforward and to-the-point.
The website consists of four different sections: Home, About, Projects and Contact. Every section is given its own different color.
As soon as users land on a homepage they’re met with the first “wow factor”. From the wavy motion effect when hovering over menu sections to a multitude of micro animations, the website shines brightest with how it presents Amanda Braga’s new collection.
Instead of making the photo gallery a standalone menu section, the website grabs visitors’ attention straight away by syncing it with user action and turning high-res visuals into cursor trail effect.
Images are revealed with the first user interaction, not only making for a good first impression but also showing what the website is ultimately all about.
