A guide to the various visual aspects of this site and the presentation of Dook as an identity.
The flag, which features as the favicon for d00k.net, serves as a cartographic representation of my aesthetic and philosophies. The design and colourscheme were chosen for their visual synergy, rather than having any distinct meaning.
The central core to the visual identity of d00k.net, Pieces serve as an abstract yvess method of communication to the viewer. In place of a logo or mascot, Pieces fill in the gaps of visual iconography on the site.
This site follows a strict colourscheme for content. With black and white being for text and important elements, set tones of grey taken in steps of 5 on the luminance Value scale in HSV. There are some exceptions to be found, for example the hex value #ffaaaa seen in the flag is used in the menu icon as well as the 404 page. A lighter dark tone is used for the backdrop of tag in order to lessen eye strain.
The self portrait used for profile pictures on websites. Came from an art project where I combined the same 2 images 100 times with different blending layers to create different results. Also seen on the about page.
