Haley – Perfect-ish Information Architecture

Visual Complexity is essentially an index of aesthetically masterful complex visual references.

– The large, colorful thumbnails pull the audience into the focus of the site: the images/projects themselves.

– Each page features a gray header containing essential navigation links: home, about, stats, search etc.  making basic navigation accessible and effective.

– Colorful icons to twitter and other applications are tastefully (and helpfully) displayed in the top right corner, again emphasizing accessibility.

– A helpful filter on the right allows the user to narrow their search of visual references by method, trend, year, or top author. They are also arranged in sixteen subsections.

– Boring math brains could easily navigate and enjoy this website, but it’s just as enjoyable for people more aesthetically minded.
