Ipsilly Discussion: Designing the Interface
With Ipsilly, we decided we wanted to go with a light, pastel-colored theme.
We got a little lazy about the specific color selection, simply adopting the most common color currently used on the web: blue. From there, it was finding a specific color code within the pastel blue range, an analog blue, and a complementary color.
We used a large amount of jQuery with the interface, to handle animations and functionality like automatic message scrolling.
