I wanted to add a bit of flair to my secondary responsive website design portfolio, stylepeterson.com. An ongoing quest of mine is to seek ways to bring the human touch into web design. In other words, to make something generated by a processor chip feel more like a handmade product. To achieve that “look and feel” in this project, I decided to borrow from the “Old European Masters” of painting. Their work has sumptuous textures and rich colors that instantly convey a sense of hand-shaped artistry and craftmanship to the modern eye.
