Unurth – Street Art


Unurth | Street Art is a website that acts as a graffiti and street art database. It’s a very minimalistic design, focusing mainly on the photographs of the art. The white background aids in creating a focal point of each picture. They all stand out because of it. It reflects a gallery-like set up which are almost always simplistic and minimal.

The HTML type is XHTML 1.0. They also use a template program, Cargo, which offers a design service to certain website. Javascript is used by Cargo for text script.

Their main stylesheet is simply named “user_stylesheet”. They use this for the little text they have such as “Comments” and “Index” tabs.

The purpose of this site is meant to bring life to graffiti that can otherwise only be seen live. With it’s simplistic design it is simply showing the graffiti. Art enthusiasts and graffiti artists would look at this site to get ideas and simply look at what type of graffiti art is popular. I believe the creator of this website executed exactly what they wanted to do, which was to show off graffiti art.
