I’m in middle of rolling out a fresh & clean header across all my websites (i.e. personal website, design blog, plugin pages). Here’s how it looks:
Personal Website: IAmPrashant.com
UI & Design Blog and Plugin Pages: DesignWithPC.com
All that this new header displays is a profile pic, a title, and a short description. The idea was to be clean, minimal, and HTML5-ish! The profile image uses CSS3 border-radius to make it round, CSS3 animations and transitions (on IAmPrashant.com), and the title uses CSS3 font-face ‘PT Sans Narrow’.
In year 2011 India saw a huge uprising in e-commerce with a 30% growth rate, and reaching $10 billion market size. India is undoubtedly on its way to become one of the biggest e-commerce market but its still sad to see no design innovation in the industry. Most of the famous Indian online retailers still follow the same design trend set by Amazon.com years ago.
Take a look at some leading Indian websites and notice the striking similarity with the Amazon.com:
