I found this website design inspiring because I like the look of the global navigation on the left sidebar. A lot of websites I have seen have had the global navigation horizontal across the top. This is a bit different and keeps the home page looking tidy. I would use the left sided global navigation/sidebar in my website potentially.
This Tory Burch website looks very neat when you open it. I like the center aligned logo and center aligned global navigation. The center aligned text "Tory Burch" with a large image as the main content area keeps the rhythm of the page together. A viewers eyes would pick out immediately all the important information down the middle. This inspires me to potentially center align my logo with an image in the center of the main content area.
The home page of Cosmopolitan magazine I found as inspirational because I like the use of contrast. Not only are there sharp contrasting colors but the text contrasts. I think it makes the page look visually interesting and allows important text to pop out at a viewer. For my website I would like to have sharp contrasting texts as seen on Cosmo.
For this Salon Couture Website I like the 3 black and white images as the main content area. It was different to me seeing the main content area be solely images, which is why I used it as inspiration. I think the large pictures make the page look very unique. In the pictures I'd use for my webpage I would either do pictures of 3 things that represent myself, or just 3 images of myself for my website.
For the Bath&Body Works home page I love the set up. I like the use of a small side bar with global navigation, an image as the main content area with the main important text in the center. For my webpage I was inspired to have my main content area be a large image, with a smaller picture of myself with my name in the center (where the FALL CLEARANCE is seen) and have my sidebar be have the global navigation.
For the Firefly Music Festival website I really like the global navigation at the very top of the page. Rather than an image at the very top and global navigation below like a lot of websites do. If I used this for my webpage I would have my global navigation at the very top with a logo in the center just like this. For my main content area I would put an interesting image as the main content with text over it (probably just my name).
For this dropify website I first like the use of bright bold colors. I think there's a good balance of white and then bright color on the page. Secondly, I really liked the 4 smaller images across the center. This inspired me to have either my header or main content area have a bright bold background. However, most likely just my header because I think too much bright bold color could be overwhelming, especially warm colors like the ones used here.
For this Frye boots webpage I love the use of an image as basically the entire background. I think a striking image, like the one shown here makes the page look very visually interesting. When I opened the webpage it had a sort of wow factor. I haven't seen very many webpages like this so it seems uniqe to me. This inspired me to potentially try and use on image as my entire background with a global navigation at the top center, just as in this.
This Betsey Johnson About page inspired me due to the layout of the main content area. I really like the use of a bold, interesting image in the middle of a large chunk of text. It inspired me to do something similar for my main content of my webpage. Id use a large, unique image of myself with the text around it. Then I'd have my global navigation at the top of the page, just like this page has.
