Design aesthetic sharpening.

So over the last two weeks I've come up with two new "big" site designs, one for a new client and one for an imaginary client, as a subproject for an older client. (In a nutshell, they wanted a fake website created to demonstrate how their information could be syndicated to third-party sites. Neat project, actually.) The two sites are similar in a couple of ways – they're both "ice" designs, a fixed-width central component floating on a textured background, much like Inkblots, actually – but both are nice demonstrations of the way my design aesthetic is still refining itself. Streamlined and elegant, with good use of photography, serif fonts and the occasional fleur-de-lis. There's still a long way to go on each of these, of course, but for the most part I'm pretty pleased with the way they're going.

Next: more Flash development. Yee-ha!
