WHAT IS DESIGN FOR SCREEN: Keaton Hensons Website

Below are some screen shots of one of my favourite illustrators Keaton Hensons webiste. Its simple and to the point and works for the purpose the site serves. When you first enter the site you are presented with an opening page, the wishbone from a chicken and the decision to view either his artwork or music. When you click on his artwork the page links are spread down the left hand side of the page, with the selected content scrolling down to the right hand side.  This simple format makes it easy to navigate from page to page rather than getting lost when browsing his work.

Viewers aren't bombarded with information or colourful fancy flash files instead you are presented with black text on a white background, the perfect combination for the type to be both eligible and readble.
