I guess Alan is fortunate to have the last name ‘Power’. It makes his logo almost design itself. His site is a one page site consisting of a list of work and a contact form. For most people, this is really all you need. Just let your work do the talking. The layout is straightforward. The type choices aren’t so bad, but the big ampersand is overpowering, and doesn’t really go with the slab-serif or the heavy sans-serif in my opinion. I count five different fonts in the header alone. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but showing some restraint in fonts can help with cohesion in a type driven layout. Scrolling down the page reveals a simple and effective layout with easy links to the actual sites. All in all, this is a good site that effectively shows off Al’s work.
