Jack­son’s site is a clever port­fo­lio that in­vites users to play. All four of its pages can be ac­cessed by links in the cor­ners (no nor­mal ham­burger menu here) and each one has its own gra­di­ent and a draw­ing tool which lets users click and drag to doo­dle, draw and sketch be­hind the site’s eye-catch­ing text. Have a look at the names on his CV, too! Im­pres­sive.

A de­light­fully clever de­tail that ties every­thing to­gether is that each page has a dif­fer­ent draw­ing tool and brush ef­fect (a paint­brush, a spray can, a pen and a feather).

Jack­son dis­cussed the ini­tial con­cept over a beer with his de­vel­oper and then con­tin­ued the dis­cus­sion over email. Jack­son jumped di­rectly into Sketch be­cause he prefers it to start­ing with sketches. Jack­son said he wanted to “make a fun web­site that would be dif­fer­ent from the rest and make peo­ple laugh.” We think he’s done just that.
