The Art of Adam Betts

I've patronized Adam's site a few times in the past 6 months or so, but I never really looked around enough – I more or less popped in, downloaded what I wanted/needed and went on my way. While getting a Firefox icon tonight (if you're ever in need of a good CS3 icon pack, definitely hit this guy's site up), I finally took the time to look around and find out more of what he was all about.

According to this interview, he started out in design when he was about 12 and just kind of kept at it. By the looks of his site, he's really honed in on his technique and style. I really think it's one of those things that tough to do – to kind of figure out what "look" works best for you and kind of sticking with it as a general theme, but not overdoing it too much. I particularly like the subtle elements he has going on - the CSS transparencies, tasteful use of reflections, rounded corners.

Great design, seems like an awesome guy. I highly recommend taking a look.
