Clay – New Creative Studio Website


#1

Hi guys,

Let us know what you think…!

http://we-are-clay.webflow.io/

I am still working on some of the interactions and content - but I’m open to any ideas that you might have, or if you spot any rough edges that I’ve missed…

Cheers,

Joe

Cheeky bump.

Bump. Bump.

Nice!

Loving the page load interactions. Very nice! :nerd_face:

Hi @JoeMillion

Very nice work !

Just 2 suggestions, but it’s only my opinion!

I think the “arrow” cursor in the work page is a bit weird, why not just a pointer cursor?

I’d remove italic style on placeholder texts in your Contact page :

Again, only my opinion :slight_smile:

I don’t see anything else, very nice job!

Best

@mistercreate

Thank you Micah :-). Do you see anything that you might improve?

@Blaise_Posmyouck

Thanks Blaise - point noted with the contact form.

As for the alternative cursor on the project links – I thought it was cool, a little different… And as far as I’m aware, doesn’t detract from the UX. What do you think?

Oh, great question @JoeMillion!

I am loving your site. So very clean. I now how to get around without any issues. Love it!

Just one humble opinion (don’t feel obligated to listen):

Make all links on white backgrounds to have the same hover color:

Or, separate colors between view changes, and page links.

Hope I was able to help!

I just bookmarked your site as inspiration, and to keep up with ya’lls growth. :nerd_face:

I appreciate the kind words, but it’s the humble opinions I’m really after :slight_smile:

It is something I’ve been pondering on. My thinking was that the orange is quite intense, and the blue doesn’t make much of an appearance anywhere else. I also thought that the blue helps create difference between the navigation and the projects panel.

How do you mean exactly, with separate colours between view changes / page links?

Thank you again for the feedback.


#8

Oh, definitely. I’m happy to help! :blush:

I absolutely agree that having the blue color can help viewers see a difference, and there is a difference between page/project links and the “Cool View - Default View” action. I think this would be the only instance a different color could be used - because it is a different action than a link.

Page links, however, all have the same action of taking a user to another location of the site.

I definitely hope I explained that okay lol :blush:

Also, if you’re interested in looking at color palettes - https://coolors.co/ is a neat place to look :nerd_face:

love it, simple and clean with just the right amount of interaction wizardy to make it feel different and engaging, top work!

Also nice logo, but i think the favicon could do with a tweak as its pretty hard to read, maybe just the C of clay could be enough as a favicon?

Only other feedback is that I would disable the Journal link for now until you have content written, you could display “Coming soon” on hover to keep it in the nav tho.

Nice one,
Jamie

21 days later…

Thanks for the feedback Jamie :blush:

I agree with you on the Favicon, I had the same thought but when I tried it, it made no sense… Maybe I’ll focus it on the L of the nose. Better than an out of focus logo.

Take care

Joe

You explained it fine :-). It makes sense and it’s smart thinking. I tried it in orange, but it made it much less visible next to the main navigation. Black doesn’t quite stand out enough either due to the weight of the font.

I suppose I’m going to be stubborn on it and leave it as it is, but I appreciate the perspective and will keep it in mind should more comments arise.

Thanks for the link too, it’s a handy site!

Joe
