I was tasked with adding a little “something extra” to the secondary pages of the relaunch and redesign of the Glacier Country website. The site is divided up into 5 sections and then into sub-sections. To set the sections and sub-sections apart I decided I needed content-related art on as many pages as possible. This would direct the eye to links for other pages that we believed the user would find helpful.
I am not entirely sure how, but eventually these little “something extras” were called “Pop Tags.” I couldn’t be more pleased with how nicely they fit within the overall design of the pages. They remain true to the theme, color and font-scheming of the site while standing out on their own.
The pop tags were a very fun diversion from the more intense coding I had been doing on the site. I drew them with a tablet and by hand over the course of a few weeks, whenever I had time. Finding images and themes to represent the various sections while working within the size-limits of the page was an enjoyable exercise. The pop tags really taught me how much a little bit of extra, content-specific flair can add to a site and I am really excited to add elements like the pop-tags to sites I work on in the future.
