School project S3 – Amazon Kindle Homepage

For our first assignment in our web design class, we had to design a basic homepage for the Amazon Kindle. My ideas for this design came mainly from the packaging of the new kindle and the device itself. The thing that sparked an idea was the tear off label that said “Once upon a time” (il était une fois : in French). You can also see the silhouette of a kid reading a book under a tree on the bar code. Those elements combined with a dreamy atmosphere made-up the banner. I was also inspired by the whirlwind of letters also visible on the packaging to create the background. The navigation button were design to mimic the “next page – prev page” on the Kindle. Obviously, the Amazon colors were used with the addition of the blue sky, a contrasting color to the orange. The final result is a corporate looking website with a splash of fun.
