We need background art for our new website. It's a website that explores the art of horror writing and filmmaking through articles, reviews and interviews. Since our new logo is in black and the images of the movies / stories we analyze often are colorful, disturbing and brutal - we need something with few colors. As you see in the attached images the area to focus most on is to the left - where the background will be most visible. The upper left have to be contrasting the logotype enough to make it stand out a bit.
Take a look at our images and get creative.
...but remember - WE DO NOT WANT STOCK IMAGES IN THE DESIGN
Some things that might inspire you is that the website design needs to transmit a feeling of seriousness and art - of in-depth and thoughtful - of inspirational and educational. What design might come to mind as you thing of those values?
Some questions that might inspire you:
- what if this was a website for a classy art gallery - what would you design then?
- what if it was a webiste for apple.com but with a content of horror - what do you imagine then?
- Or if it was a website on the films of Ingmar Bergman...
This might suggest a minimal approach and a bright (perhaps even white) approach. Think about it and see if that inpires you.
