Designer Spotlight – Gin Lane Media

Designer Spotlight – Gin Lane Media

Posted by Rainey

The Blind Barber, yes I just typed that correctly, has a killer website designed by Gin Lane Media. This website relies heavily on large, fullscreen background photos and a solid video to tell the story.  The navigation is familiar enough to quickly understand but interesting enough to encourage clicking around a bit.


  • Huge black and white photography
  • Simple, clean design
  • Extreme focus on a simple message
  • Awesome loader animation
  • The site really makes the place feel legit
  • The video on the about page makes me want to go there to get a good ol’ fashion cut and straight razor shave
  • That video also reminds me of the virtual haircut <- awesome, use your headphones


  • The blue color chosen for the text doesn’t feel crisp enough
  • The shadow in the menu with the hover blue text, again not crisp
