In a world where most fashion design websites leave much to be desired, Fashion designer Karen Walker’s website is a creative delight. The site uses a well-considered patchwork-like interface for the homepage design. Each “patch” has an interesting rollover graphic of a large cross, a motif that’s continued throughout the site. Two choices for navigation are offered here – the text menu list in the top left column and the large squares that take up the majority of the page.
The internal pages have a different three-column layout with the main content in the far right column. The site also contains a shop but it is not one of its main attractions.
Karen Walker’s site is semi-responsive. A minimum resolution is set but specific elements such as the coloured tiles grow with the browser width.
All images finish with a flat colour on each edge of each square, giving the site the ability to adapt to different browser sizes without stretching the images.
The site is refreshingly different and interesting to explore, behind each square is a discovery. This website is well balanced – the rollover images and layout give the site a unique edge, while the serif typography lends it an air of professionalism.
