The website needs to be colourful enough to be fun for kids but still functional and user-friendly. All of Juliana Sheikh’s books are beautifully illustrated, with unique characters and colour schemes. I created colour-coded sections for each of her books that reflect all the story’s key colours. As all the books are vibrantly illustrated, I developed a pastel colour scheme for the section backgrounds, to allow the illustrations and artwork to shine on the page. There are also subtle gradients used in the background to provide a bit more depth and directional lighting for the imagery.
I wanted the website to be a little off-kilter and fun, so each section is slightly offset to the left or right, rather than following a very centralised or linear layout. This is a subtle layout choice that might not be immediately noticeable but adds visual interest while still keeping everything easy to reference.
