Yea yea and there's very old and very used pattern as a bg .
Ari Hallami - Portfolio by *Mellikki is simply gorgeous. The colour scheme, the layout, the style and simple yet graphic elements...absolutely gorgeous. I love this one. The handwritten type as title/logo just gives it a pro touch. Outstanding work here. (
I love the subtle green tones in the background. For all you naysayers, I imagine it would be very easy to modify the colors as well with a little front end work. Template design is very complicated, and is a very difficult, yet satisfying form of artwork when a good result arises from a project. The combination of marketing and artwork has existed for well over 200 years; this is simply the next generation of the marriage.
Hard for just at the beginning. For me, it's always a joy to design for myself and I wouldn't say that these nonsense layouts are difficult to make. Hard ones are the ones which have a real purpose (big companies), whose biggest share holders are saying to put green and purple together and do the impossible, every time. Those layouts are for sure the hard ones, but not the most enjoyful .
