We hope you like it! Spreading camaraderie through good design…

I do like it Trent, this is a pretty great idea!

The design is simple and clean, featuring two giant illustrations of the designers participating in the “design swap”. Nice use of Typekit to give the site a unique typographic layout. There’s so much depth shown in just this single page it amazes me. The texture is subtle and plays off the strong type well. The red really gives the parts of the site the designer wants to focus on focus. Make sure and check out the ‘swaps’ too the first off the block is Trent Walton and Yaron Schoen – two designers we’ve featured here on UMS before!
