I wanted to look up websites that have unusual interfaces. I came across this french webiste called my provence. It’s basically for locals and tourists to explore the site and see what they can get up to in Marseilles.
The homepage struck me as very unique. The site activates your arrow buttons to navigate the site but you can also use your mouse. The Background changes as you move from north-west to west etc.
The whole white text over an image is very popular right now. I usually don’t like it but I like how they used it here because they didn’t put a line underneath the top words. This is something for the tourists to go and see so you can navigate left or right to view picture or videos.
This is how they have laid out the images and videos for this particular tourist spot. I like how simplistic it is but I would also get annoyed going over and over to see more pictures. I would rather have them in a grid with borders and pick the ones I want to see.
This is the navbar I guess you would say. When you hover over the circle the different parts gets bigger as you hover. It is a good way to separate the information and also give the viewer a view of the whole area. I like the actual animation here but I don’t like the design. It is too blue and feels very washed out. They could have used more dark blues even to contrast different sections?
