||Kashira - This is a layout
to celebrate 10th Anniversary of Rushita.com. SKU theme is used because
it was also 10th Anniversary for Shoujo Kakumei Utena. In the style
of the Shadow Girl Theather (A-ko and C-ko), they tell the story of how
this website began, in the same way the storytelling of how SKU began.
The grey blackground in the film strip has message about the site anniversary,
although it isn't clearly mentioned on the main message side. The
bright pink rectangles are navigation buttons. This is one of my
best layouts in my opinion. Thanks Giovanna from Empty
Movement for providing the high quality theme image. This layout
was used from October 2007 to November 2008, and is a full layout with
a matching pesonal vBulletin forum theme I'm using at another site.
The 404 page also has a SKU style image to match it.
||Christmas 2007 - I Was Touched
and I Believed. The message on the page is directly the lyrics of
the song "I Was Touched and I Believed". It was a beautiful song
that we sang for Christmas that year (midi included on the page), and the
lyrics itself is a complete Christmas message. The images is the
nativity scene of 2 shepherds and the 3 kings which matches the lyrics.
The navigation is on the blue icons, which turn to orange with the text
for the section on mouse-over. This is a full layout for the whole
||Ginkgo 2006 - This is a
beautiful image I found online and I always like the yellow ginkgo leaves.
The hidden mouse-over message was "I'll watch over you....for generations
after generations." This idea is taken from wikipedia (site linked
by the word "gingko") on the ginkgo tree itself. It turns out that
gingko is considered a living fossil. A single tree can lives for
hundreds or thousands of years, and therefore it can actually watch generations
comes and goes by. The phase "let me be with you" is the name of the opening
theme of Chobits. This layout was used from October 2006 to October
2007. This is also a full layout with a matching one for my LJ.
||Snowflake (Christmas 2006)
- The main image is a beautiful photo of a snowflake, graphic edited and
enhenced. The Christmas message is the main content, and the Christmas
song used that year was"What Child is This". The small clickable
snowflake icons leads to different website that has the lyrics of What
Child is This, the all about snowflakes website, a site that allows you
to virtually cut out paper snowflakes online, a site that has a flash movie
about the story of Christmas, a link to the Site Declaration page, and
a link to pop-up the 9th Anniversary page with a personal message.
Christmas month is the same month for site anniversary. This is a
||Be My Angel - The angel
character is from an artbook named "Angel Flavour". It is a fixed
size design, due to time constraint while badly needed a new design ^^;;.
The design is centered on the screen. The blue beads on the orbits
are for navigation, which turns to yellow beads when you mouse-over them.
"Be My Angel" is also the name of the opening theme song of "Angelic Layer".
This layout was used from November 2005 to October 2006. This is
also a complete layout set came with xmb style, LJ style, and wallpaper.
||Christmas 2005 - A very
simple layout with a photo of my christmas tree ornament. Due to
time constraint, this is only a single page front page layout. The
rest of the site still run on "Forget Me Not". "Oh Holy Night" is
the background music for the layout. The most important thing is
the Christmas message on the layout.
||Forget Me Not - This is
a flexible layout design, which fits browser size from 800x600 to 1024x768.
Some of the elements of the design shift according to the screen width.
The name of the girl on the layout is "Nayuki", from a game called "Kanon".
Purple/blue haired girl is Rushita's favourite when choosing characters
since they represent Rushita to bring out the style and message.
This layout was used for for a long time from September 2004 to October
2005, with the Christmas 2004 and 7th Anniversary layout went in between.
This is a complete layout set came with xmb style, LJ style, and wallpaper.
"Forget Me Not" is named after the purple colour of the design.
||7th Anniversary - This layout
overlapped with the christmas one. At some point, the site has both
layouts on at the same time and you can flip between the 2 using the text
links. A very pretty image from some anime. The girl in the
image was picked because she somewhat resembles the look and style of Rushita.
Rushita.com came to the 7th year in December 2004 and I thought it would
be best to portrait the "Rushita look" on the main image. Despite
the total file size is kinda large, this is one of the most beautiful layout
design. I might come up with a similar design next time. The
hidden mouseover messages on the main image on different pages are:
"remember me... like you've
"look at my eyes... and
tell me you love me..."
"dance with me... until
"listen with your heart...
and see what you believe..."
||Christmas 2004 - Again traditional
nativity Christmas scene. Image came from my Precious Moments colouring
books. The main design was actually an old one used before for a
previous private web xmas card, this time added the surrounding christmas
weath. The main image is an mouseover one, with the christmas message
on a matching image showing up when you mouse over it. This is a
partial layout only for main sections, because I'm actually not very fond
of the design. Nevertheless, the main thing is to get the message
The layout was up at the
same time as the 7th anniversary one.
||Flame of Love II 2004 -
This is a come back of the same design from 2001. It is one of my
most favourite layout. When I took it down in 2001, I saved all the
files and I knew someday I would put it back up. I need a little
adjustment to the images to make it more centered, and redid the main image
so it is actually a better quality then the 2001 version. Also added
the mouseover navigation titles. This also comes with the whole package
with the matching site stuff design, xmb layout and even the livejournal
layout. This layout was used on the first half of 2004.
