Design Journal Post #3
I loved the design on this page for The New York Times. The 3-D effect drew my eye deeper into the page to see the details at the deepest layer. I like the way the colored layers move like flames and point towards the runner at the bottom. The darkness of the colors matches the catastrophe of the article.
This week we learned about C.A.R.P. Virtual reality designers most certainly will organize any information in a 3-D world according to the rules of C.A.R.P. I hadn’t’ thought about the rules being applied to 3-D images on a page. In the same way that a Prezi presentation adds levels of depth to slide shows, levels within a 3-D image on a page could help organize information based on its proximity to other levels. The image above is leveled with just color, but I would be interested in seeing or trying 3-D leveling on a page or website to organize information.
