We Are Soup Review
First and foremost this is an eye catching site. The fact that it is very clean appeals to me. I like the bright bold colours and simplistic graphics, and the fact that it doesn’t have a ton of unnecessary “things” competing for my attention. I am also on an orange kick , so I’m sure that has contributed to my affinity for the site. I appreciate the fact that the navigation for the site is fixed so I have no problem finding the different sections. There are interesting little details that adds to the overall user experience. The personalized icons are a nice touch. Although I like this site a lot, I wish I could see images of their work without having to hover over top of it. It takes to much work to see their portfolio, and as a portfolio site, its that the goal?
Big Noise Review
Another orange site, big surprise. I like the look and feel of this site, the quirky graphics really gives this site a cool vibe. I appreciate that there is evidence of a grid on this, even though this site has more going on, it still feels like there is order. Again I like the attention to detail. The fact that links on the navigation bar change colour depending on what page you are on is a plus, and the main graphic surrounding the logo changes as you navigate though the different pages is a nice touch. I like that their work is featured on the home page and when going to the “work” page, their portfolio is organized in a neat and effective way. They could have used more contrast in their main type and I wish their footer stood out a bit more, but all in all I like it.
