After spending and additional 2 or 3 hours searching the web for awesome websites, I narrowed it down to three that I liked. After assessing these websites I kind of discovered what my asthetic is. I like clean, simple, moderm, streamline websites that are easty to navigate. Straight to the point.

The first website I found was a restaurant website called Four. They are based out of Toronto. This is an example of clean and streamline. It gets straight to the point and is easy to navigate. The color scheme is simple and there and is not overly done up with flash. The little video clippings taking the place of just photos is great. There is only one thing that bothers me and that is the justification fo the type.  The titles arn’t centered in the white boxes. The font is ok, but it looks like a boring old helvetica. They could have used something more streamline especially for the links at the bottom. But overall its really nice and it makes me want to fly to Toronto just to eat in this restaurant.

The second website I found was a marketing website. Now this is an example of simple, almost minimalistic. It uses graytone with a pop of orange, I love that, and everything you need to find is listed on the left hand side. Easy. They use a little flash that doesn’t take long to load and the rollover title bars make it easy to read which link you are about to select. Need I say more?

The last website I found was a portfolio website for a graphic designer/web designer/photographer. Once again it is modern, streamline, simple. I love the type. Bravo! It’s neutral color pallette with links in florescent pops of colors draws your eyes to where they need to go to navigate the website easily. It also helps that his own photography is great too so the photos are beautiful. I kind of want to use this website and maybe so ideas from the other too websited for when we build our own websites.
