I love my new blog web designer. She is incredibly talented, and has the uncanny ability to capture concepts with images. In fact, if you’d like to comment on this post to offer her a “high five” for this website design, I’m sure she’d appreciate it. Her name is Beata.
When Beata and I sat down to try to figure out how to express my “style” she asked me what kind of visuals I was drawn to. I showed her the Medi-mation website since I have a soft spot for 3-D science animation. She said she’d like to start with some microscopic images and stylize them for me so that they were suggestive of medical images, but not too literal.
Beata offered me a series of background patterns to choose from for my landing page. I did an abrupt halt over this one though:
Beata wondered why I was hesitant.
“Uh… this pattern is really pretty and I like the colors… but gosh it reminds me of…”
Beata searched my facial expression in an attempt to finish the sentence.
“Well, I don’t mean to be critical, because it’s a very lovely design. But I think that you accidentally captured the exact appearance of urine sediment.”
I sent Beata this photo:
We had a good laugh and changed the design of the landing page. Are you glad we did? (My husband said I should keep it.)
