My Ex The Nutjob

Sep 20th, 2009 | By | Category: Portfolio

This site was done for a friend.  It’s a simple WordPress blog with some really offensive colors.  It’s an example of when using warning colors is a good thing.

The goal of the site is for my friend (and anyone else he invites) to blog about his experiences with his ex-girlfriend, their child and her inability to deal with / in reality.  I seldom get involved in the politics of the thing, but I do design according to subject.  Having been there, I had a good bit of inspiration.

I made heavy use of golds, oranges and yellows in this design, with reds as accent colors.  Probably the only non-offensive color in the whole mess is the blue text.  I’m especially proud of the devil horns as major heading markers.  It’s something to behold.  His current wife said, “It’s pretty!” when she saw it.  Whatever you say, sweety.

I did his Twitter account as well.  Based on the fact that he hasn’t added content in a while, maybe she found out about it…
