Across design, illustration, and photography, Amy Stine creates colorful compositions that are presented on a black background. Her clean, purposeful direction shows in the site and in her work — where passion meets persistence. See the website ›
The portfolio of San Francisco designer Amy Stine demonstrates how much a designer can do with typography alone. The design makes careful use of whitespace to create a landing page that is powerful and dramatic despite its minimal content.
If you love to work with type but hate the small selection of fonts that are web safe, Adobe® Muse™ software can help by allowing you to typeset in Adobe Muse and automatically export to an image on publish.
Even though the type on Stine's navigation menu is small, the links to navigate her site are larger than the actual visible text, so they're easy to click. Likewise, the links to the categories within the Work section of her site look as though they are surrounded by whitespace, but the entirety of each container is a clickable image.
In Adobe Muse, you can select an object — text, image, shape, or otherwise — and link it to a page on your site or any URL on the web. Links to pages on your site will automatically be updated if you change a page URL.
The projects within Stine's Work section are showcased using Adobe Muse slide show widgets. Her design uses well-crafted semi-opaque Back and Next links as an alternative to the usual arrow approach to these buttons.
To make it clear to users where they are on the site, navigation "breadcrumbs" are located up top to show where that project is within the site structure.
