As you can see, I used bright colors for my personal website. I think it evokes a sense of playfulness. There's lots of
display: flex; in order to easily center the body copy in their content containers. Also, I threw in plenty of fun animations to make everything feel alive.
This is a dental website that's both quirky and cutesy. The skeumorphic touches were meant to evoke a sense of “old soul.” This design is unabashedly Allison. I'm not terribly fond of using
background: linear-gradient();, but it adds a sense of modernity without upsetting the skeumorphic notions therein.
I wanted my dental website to be unconventional. You know—devoid of tooth glyphs and corny stock images of people with super white teeth (though there's nothing wrong with white teeth!). The contrasting bands of color were inspired by the visible light spectrum. Nerd first, dentist second.
