Hi guys. I'm doing a design, and I'm trying to keep it really simply and clean to emphasize the photography for the client. I hope this image works! Sorry if it's too large. I feel like I need a splash of colour, and as my client does photography and a lot of photographs from India, I'm not sure how to add colour. I thought adding a blast of colourful powder (to represent the Holi Festival) in the background but I can't find any good stock photography.
**This isn't finished as yet, there's still coding to go through so just ignore the things out of place like at the bottom with the green text and overlapping images etc). Just looking for some suggestions about how to add some colour**
Nothing wrong with having the clients images providing the colour - I know what you mean by the powder but I reckon you're better off to concentrate on other design elements than putting in stock to communicate that concept.
For my money, just a bit more space overall would be a huge help it looks a bit cramped. The shadow below the photo looks a bit odd (and it looks off centre). The rounded tabs on the navigation seems a bit at odds with the rest of the design.
It'd also be really good if you could tighten up the Robyn Beech as the kerning is a bit sloppy and loose at the moment (especially in the "Beeche"
The overall response I've had to the white and type has been really positive so I think I'll leave the photos for the colour.
As this is a screencap the actual screen is wider so there is a fair bit of room on either side, it's not as tight as this image shows.
I agree about the kerning. I'm still getting used to typography so I'm going on instinct at the moment but I wasn't sure- so I'm glad you confirmed the same thing for me. Thanks again.
