Here are more websites I looked at for inspiration with my design. I still am interested in a flat design website with elements of graphic design and illustrations. The Mail chimp website mixes this style with a photograph, I found the two to be appealing and looks cool. The colourful theme continues throughout the site. The old mail chimp website had a parallax scroll that was quite interesting (check ot the link to see it). I like the se of the large hero image and use of solid background colours for each section.
The second inspo, is the Tim Lahan portfolio. The graphic prints really drew me in and liked the styling of the website. Not in love with the menu bar since half the time it is barely legible but overall like the style. Doesn’t have a strong ux design since it is hard to navigate through the site.
