Top View Design
Desk top view is a trend that’s been around awhile in web design and I’ve based this layout on the view from above. This trend relies heavily on viewing items on a desk or table top from first person perspective. This type of layout works best using realistic-looking objects. You can find realistic items in some kits or extract them yourself.
A “Snapshot” Layout
Most of the items used for this layout are from ET Designs kit, In My Kitchen. The iPhone and granite background are from my own stash. With realism in mind, objects should be sized appropriately in comparison with other items in the arrangement. It should feel like a snapshot of the activity depicted in the layout.
Can you think of ways you can incorporate top view in some of your layouts?
