Website 1: Jessica Roux

This is Jessica's homepage

Jessica Roux is a Nashville-based freelance illustrator and plant & animal enthusiast. She uses subdued colors and rhythmic shapes, and in doing so she renders flora, fauna, food, and many other things with intricate detail reminiscent of old world beauty.

When you open Jessica's website, you immediately see her work. She has her name beneath a well-rendered hand holding a flower. This hierarchy is interesting becuase typically artists will advertise their names more so than their artwork - at least for promotional purposes by use of hierarcy. In this case it's right the opposite, Jessica relies on her artwork more so than her title. Her webpage is clean and compliments her artistic style. She utilizes a gallery-style layout to display her artwork. The submenu is clear and easy to follow. The name of the page that you are on becomes a darker color, which helps a viewer know which page they on currently viewing. This website is completely responsive.
