How To Design Usable Audio & Video Media Players

by Jake Rocheleau

February 27, 2015 in Designer Showcase

If you’ve been living under a rock in Bikini Bottom for the past fifteen years then allow me to explain website media. You see, the Internet used to be a place dedicated to text and conversations. Eventually text & images blurred together. But at the turn of the 21st century Internet speeds were still very slow, thus streaming media wasn’t a reliable option.

Fast-forward to modern times and you have access to streaming video services right at your fingertips. Putting aside free video hosting services you can also stream movies and television through companies like Netflix or Amazon Prime.

I want to cover the subject of media players from the user experience perspective. Back just 10 years ago YouTube would have been the largest video streaming network on the planet. Now we have dozens of options located all around the globe, each with their own custom player. In this post you’ll find some tips and suggestions for how to design your own custom media players that entice visitors and draw attention from the crowd.

This gallery focuses on 33 brilliant examples of interior design & decorating agency website layouts. Some agencies are smaller with a team of 1-2 people while others can be much larger employing 10+ people.

by Jake Rocheleau

December 2, 2014 in Designer Showcase

The world of fine art is large and historic crossing borders all around the world. Art galleries and museums have been around for centuries but haven’t always been able to market themselves online. Now that most people in the world have Internet access it’s almost strange to not have a website – and this most certainly includes art museums.

For this gallery I’ve put together 36 websites created for museums and fine art galleries. Most layouts employ a sense of minimalism to put a direct focus on the photographs and page content. It’s not everyday that you’d need to create a new museum website, but it’s good to know what some of the big players are using for their own designs.
