There is still a room to perform in web design …

It is amazing to discover all the resources related to web design more precisely graphic design. I’m still admiring all those website asking myself if it could be possible to bring something new, genuine and attractive.

I just select some of those who really attract me somehow;

This website is just refreshing, cute

simply warm and original.

Professional and the design is great.

Although internet is full of impressive web design, there is a room for creativity for those who are willing to express themselves especially in Africa where I’m based now. Regardless the tools used; CMS (Content Management System), flash or common web languages (HTML, PHP, CSS, etc.).

In Africa there is community of wonderful web developers who are doing also the graphic design of the website they are designing and their main focus is to build a robust functional website easy to browse. Most of the time they are using CMS such as joomla, drupal, spip, that comes with a set of web design template.

The result is predictable: most African, websites look the same.  Nevertheless you do find original attractive ones;

The author is an artist designer before being a geek.

I like this one it really appeals to african art.

A little bit flashy but it is attractive

Somehow web design is a kind of art and usually you’ve good artists who are not IT-savy or web developers who are not into artistic. Both are passionate about what they do, and their end products are wonderful.

If we could somehow capture the best of both worlds, the results would be great.

I have received an order to design a logo.  My first inclination was provide a logo with universal appeal, but the customer requested something related to my African culture.  It then occurred to me that it can be wonderful and genuine to use our local art to feed the huge  web bank and graphic design resources.
