Rare Sheep Breeds
You may have noticed: I like sheep.
I was once looking at my sheep on the profile page of my website wondering about how I could demonstrate my capabilities as a designer – besides my portfolio site. While portfolio pages are good and important, I wanted my work shown through a much more personal project.
Since sheep are very dear to me, it was a no-brainer to create a website dedicated to them. I wanted to make it educational besides looking cool, thus the idea of the Rare Sheep Breeds website was born.
I really liked the low-poly style I created the graphics of my portfolio site with, so I wanted to explore it a bit further. Each design took 2-3 days to create, I had to experiment with different shapes and colors. I also wanted bold typography, beautiful big letters coupled with nice animations.
I will keep adding more breeds to the collection, unfortunately there are quite a few rare ones. With the modern rise of corporate agribusiness and the decline of localized family farms, many breeds of sheep are in danger of extinction.
There is also an exhibition on the way, I will be posting about it in the Lab.
