What do illustrated project covers, colorful rollovers and a photographic landing page have in common? ProSite – our completely customizable, personal portfolio websites that sync with the Behance Network.
Today we’re shining the spotlight on a few original examples that highlight how interesting project covers encourage vistors to click more and how a positive first visual impression can make all the difference for potential clients and employers.
Yellowhammer Illustration‘s landing page includes a series of simple, matching illustrations that come to life in their rollover state. Fun to look at, and play with too, we dig this minimalistic approach.
Tip: it’s always important that the project cover image you choose matches the work inside. Otherwise this can be misleading for the viewer.
Jeff Reid‘s photography site tells a story with its grey landscape image that’s been divided into sections with a colorful rollover. Each section takes you to a different photography project and with matching single word titles like ‘solitude,’ ‘continuity’ and ‘adventure.’
We often get questions about using one main image as a landing page (rather than a series of project covers) and Italian-based photographer, Pierluigi Dessi, has done just this. By selecting an image that represents his recent work, Dessi utilizes his homepage as a means for highlighting one specific piece.
