Sites of the Week #3

May 13th, 2011 by Tony de Jesus

For the list of this week I chose the website of two companies: one which develops applications for iPhone and IPad and the other that builds really amazing WordPress themes. I’ve also selected Wing Cheng’s portfolio; ColorSnapper, a Mac application that “replaces” the DigitalColor Meter and, finally, a website with a great animation that explains what is a life insurance.


Wing Cheng

This is the personal homepage of Wing Cheng, a webdesigner from The Netherlands. It looks like a real book and must be read like one as users need to go through all pages to reach the end. The one-page design combined with the abundance of white space works perfectly here. The website also features some great illustration work. Instead of putting previews of design work, like most portfolios do, the designer chose to create simple drawings which can then be seen in their actual colored form once clicked on.

ColorSnapper is a tool for designers who are looking for a better method of color picking on the Mac. This little application, unlike Appleā€™s pre-bundled DigitalColor Meter, is located in the menubar for quick access. With ColorSnapper, you can quickly pick colors and retrieve them within any application you are working in.
