The Yomi project was to take an existing article and apply a whole new design to it. Because this article refers to Sun Tzu a lot, I thought it an traditional Eastern style would work best. I chose an image of a red mountainous landscape, because I thought that would remind most of wartime. The large character is the traditional Cantonese symbol for 7 (the chapter for the article). One of the small details that I would like to point out is that most front end developers would instantly see a large image in the header and think "This needs to be parallaxed!". I was thinking the same thing. Parallax is a technique where the background scrolls at a slightly different rate than the foreground (browser viewport). This illusion was first used by disney in the 50's for classics such as Bambi, and is still used today. Because the image was of mountains, I decided to not use the flashy effect to preserve the stoicism of the mountain.
The lookup table that I build for this website was to try to bring quicker understanding to some rather arbitrarily made terms. Each term was a theoretical move in a theoretical game, with each move serving no other purpose other than to defeat another move. I feel that I was able to convey this successfully.
Look at the little bullet points at the bottom of this site! they are ninja swords!
