The Forrst is Growing Into Something New

More than a year ago, we at ZURB took over Forrst with the hopes of restoring its former glory and breathing new life into what Kyle Bragger started. We wanted to foster a thriving community centered around active learning and feedback. We molded Forrst into a place where others could share their work and learn from each other. But we noticed more people using it as place to ask questions and discuss design. We've decided it was time for a change. With that, **we're announcing today that we'll be shutting down the ability to create new posts on Forrst on April 14**.

My current body of work

A project I did for a typography class. The idea was to revisit a vintage packaging style somewhat inspired by their packaging design from the late-1800s, but is updated to the modern consumer while also expanding the market that may also decide to sell this product.

Pin-Up Emporium

Logo design for a client who is setting up a hairdressers in the local area. Kirsty wanted something retro, simple and stylish. I haven't had a great deal of practice with retro styles so it was a great opportunity to learn. I am satisfied with the outcome, which isn't normal for me.. I'd be curious to see what you generally think about it? I definitely prefer the logo on black rather than white.

Header re-redesign

A few new iterations on the mobile navigation, thanks to @Oiseau and @kenil for their input 1.a) Centered logo, with "Top read" and "Search" on the sides as easy access and a 100% width "Menu" button that activates a dropdown. The dropdown features the main categories in a column with associated color and then the other items with their icon (in larger size) 1.b) The same but using all caps. I'm not sold on either one. 2) A different approach, logo alone centered top and then a quick nav including "Top read", "Menu", "Last news", "Search" and "User", the dropdown layout is same as in 1.b). 3) Reduced navigation: logo on left and buttons for "Menu" and "Search". In this case the dropdown has 3 columns and in the bottom placed in two columns the other items with their icon. 4.a) A variation over 3, with "Top read", "Search" and a minimized icon "..." that opens "User" and "Last news". Is the ellipsis to vague? maybe using other icon would fit best. 4.b) a cleaner take on 4.a) using 2 columns for the main categories.

v3

Header re-redesign

The header for desktop is almost done, only some icons here and some details there are missing. My concern now is: # What would make the best navigation experience on mobile? The items to accomodate were basically this 3, so the layout developed was a "fold out" menu that expands on click but (if the user clicks) shows the same content desktop users see. - "Top read" news, as a quick navigation to scan 5 popular news - Main menu, with the most important topics - Subnavigation, items oriented to interaction rather than a specific topic
