I first of all wanted to have the design I had previously spoken about. The navigation was going to have home, blog, work, about and a contact page. I wanted to create the navigation system from scratch to make my website more original than using a standard navigation system template or just plain colour scheme. I wanted the navigation buttons for each of the different pages to be different colours. Heres an example of one of the buttons in photoshop.
I made one of these for every page I had so the end product of the navigation system look like this:
I thought afterwards, what could I add to the navigation system to make it better? I decided to have rollover images of the buttons inverted colours so when the user went to click, it would like white with the colours on the outside. As shown here:
I thought this was a good addition to the website as it makes it more original and more please to the eye. After this, I looked to start creating the website content.
