This project was made after I saw the Minions movie in cinema. I fell in love with these little yellow guys and they makes me laugh every time I see them. It took few minutes to find out if there is any website or concept presenting the movie but I found nothing. That was the first step when I said “Okay, I need to do something like this!” The making of this site wasn’t like making a normal project with hours of sketching, thinking and prototyping the whole thing. I just sat down on the sofa (while watching the simpsons) and take few hours to make this happen. The aim was clear – just create some concept site presenting the movie, tell a few words about minions and make people want to go to see it.
Because I’m a big fan of simple and clean design, this was the same case. Not so huge website with a lot of paragraphs and other shit but just simple landing page with great use of colors and typo. Fortunately I also found some great images of minions in good quality.
After 3 hours the design was done. I’m sure there is a lot of things I could do better now or improve the whole site but I’m kind of satisfied with the ending and as I see, other people are as well. After posting to dribbble and behance, this shot became my most popular image through dribbble and gets a lot of attention. I know that for other guys there is 100+ likes normal or even nothing but for me it’s something great and I see that making some project for fun could be really beneficial. I don’t want to say that likes are everything but the feedback and attention is the thing and more likes = more attention 🙂
