All Hail King Mobile!
In this web design for my affiliate Mobile Friendly Web Design Portfolio, I wanted to create a look that was out of the ordinary, a departure from the slick modern stock photography that commonly adorns web sites. So, I went back into time!
I found a number of stock photos of paintings by Old Masters that lent themselves well to the "Mobile Has Become King!" theme that I was playing upon in this web design portfolio. I used three images for the home page slider. Each image is a painting by an Old Master. I added a smartphone to each image that was suitably 'aged' and color tweaked to fit the overall color palette of each image.
The end result is an uncommon visual theme that works quite well! We ran this theme for a time while promoting our mobile-friendly web design services. I like it so much I may bring it back! - Don Peterson.
