More About this Design
The design for this coming soon page couldn't be whipped up without first taking into account the site's text logo. It's growing increasingly popular to have online logos be in lowercase, gentle and clean fonts. They need to be easy to read and right now there's a trend to have curvy sans-serif. As the project's manager and lead designer, this fell under things I had to focus on when making this. I opted to revisit Google Webfonts, as their fonts are allowed for both commercial and personal projects, so it's always ok to use those in commercial or branding commissions. After some trial and error, I settled on Righteous for wrpgs's logo text.

Next were the colours. I love colour selection, and when clients or my own projects let me figure these out, I am always confident that the outcome looks good. In this case, the chosen blue/turquise was picked as it suggests a playful nature when combined with the chosen font. Blue also often looks clean on both light and dark designs, whereas green can sometimes look a little tacky, and white and black is just kinda dull.

The coding itself didn't take long, as it's similar to the Sizael landing page I've done previously, but it was the first time I've used a hover effect that isn't bog-standard (which made me wonder why I hadn't used it before when it is so easy).

New Jcink commission for The World Darkened, a vampire forum roleplay, and it's admin chyrra 

Textures and such will be added later once I've initial feedback, and a background image is to be supplied by the client. 

Edit: 13/12/14 
Not heard from the client so if somebody wants this, let me know and I'll do any tweaks/edits as needed.

Just a little something in progress for Icyboards and MyBB. Haven't quite decided where to put all the standard links yet such as User CP XD Might make them collapse away as a mobile-friendly drop-down or something.
