UPDATE: The following post is from a time when I tried a different design approach. In the end of the post, you will find a few pictures of that idea. However, the following idea has deprecated for the current cleaner design.


The Visual Upgrade of the website is going well. The biggest issue so far was to find a proper influence for each page. I am a huge fan of Lord of the Rings universe, therefore I play LotRo (Lord of the Rings Online) on and off for about the past 10 years.

I mainly play as a Man (Human) Warden. After messing around for a while and trying to find a proper theme to influence me, I thought “why not LotRo?”:

Lord of the Rings Online Character Screen
Web Design based on Lord of the Rings online

It is an old game for sure and many aspects are visually outdated, but I do not think that this is bad thing. In fact, I find its style very authentic and original. So that’s it pretty much, the main influence of “About” page came from Lord of the Rings online character screen.
