Personal Site Holding Page

http://www.stumason.com

My personal website has remained the same for two or three years now and over time it's become less and less representative of my work and approach to design . With that in mind I decided that an update just wouldn't cut it and set about with the intention of creating something a little more interesting than the average maintenance page...

It started out like this a couple of days ago: forrst.com/posts/… (with an update yesterday: forrst.com/posts/…)

...and is now live at stumason.com

============================================

What I would love to be able to do is style all the text using font replacement with lettering.js and scrollParallax.js for the extra details rather than using .pngs and anchor.js but as I'm still feeling my way through such things (started out in print and only started properly learning HTML & CSS about six months ago), I'm struggling to get my head around it at the mo! ;)

Would love to hear what you think... especially if you've a smaller monitor, would be keen to see how that might affect the anchor positioning.

Ooooh, and thanks to @matthewmorek on Twitter/dribbble for the heads up on lettering.js

Design for Clients

http://xheight.co.uk/2011/06/13/design-for-clients/

I'm sure many have already read this but for those that haven't, it's a nicely balanced article and well worth a read...

"Here’s the truth: the majority of work being shared online is not client-centred design. And as pretty and as guiltily-pleasurable as we may find it, it doesn’t serve much purpose outside of the design community."

Amen!

(not quite so convinced by the grammar and conjunction use but that's an altogether uglier issue, lol ;)

True Grip Digital Magazine Cover

Cover of a digital magazine I put together for a Subaru Impreza owner's club I'm involved in. I handle content, design and publication of the magazine which is available in print via MagCloud.com and digitally via www.issuu.com. It's displayed here in issuu's viewer with a number of modifications to enhance the layout.
The cover shot has had a fair bit of work post-production to lift the colours, contrast, tone etc as well as adding the moody sky etc.

Proposed homepage animation for sandwich manufacturer

Proposed homepage animation for sandwich manufacturer who are keen to portray a fun and humourous approach to chilled food manufacture.

Elements would 'spring out' from the floor revealing the complete image that would then react to mouse overs, clicks etc.
