It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these, but it’s time to start up the Site of the Week. This week, we have a fun, exceptionally well designed site. Fully Illustrated is the portfolio of Michael Heald, a designer from across the pond, who specializes in design, illustration, photography and branding, mainly in the gaming space. Hebills Fully Illustrated as a “new media company” that gives you big agency creative for a small agency price. Fully Illustrated has created a slick site with just enough sparkle to keep things interesting, like the animation for his navigation pieces look like they would be created in Flash, but it’s all HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. Very slick. Looking at the site, it’s built on a WordPress base, so it’s got the ease of use of the WordPress content management, yet is a fresh design working around the basics of WordPress.

Michael’s work is very colorful, perfect for the segment that he does his work for, the gaming industry. He’s got a bright, fun, edgy feeling to the sites and designs that he’s got on display. I especially love his home page. It’s got a simple setup, with the big, bold images that show you the way to the different portions of his portfolio. That, combined with the dark background, makes for some big impact when you see the site. The navigation is simple and straightforward and doesn’t get in the way of things. Just a great, fun site that is simple and easy to use. And if you want to have some fun, head over to his FI-Blog. Great artwork and stuff there as well.
