Site of the Day:

Website for user interface designer Christophe Dumont

Personal portal websites—which simply present links to online portfolios, LinkedIn and other social media and professional profiles—are common among creative professionals, since so many of us are active on so many websites. While the visual impact of this design is minimal, the user interaction is not (which is appropriate because it’s the online hub for interface designer Christophe Dumont). And although the animation on the page isn’t earth-shattering, I was inspired by how much this small detail amped up the feel of the website. Sometimes those details are just cool, and sometimes those details are exactly what you need to give your site some real zing.
