As you may have heard, on the 18th January some sites were blacked out as a protest against SOPA and PIPA. To do that, different techniques were used, below are the most interesting and well executed ones.
Poster-like approach with simple message using striking contrast - red background and white letters. Font reminds me movie opening titles and posters from 50s and 60s.
Just like in real life - simulation of document censorship using black blocks. Creative approach using CSS without messing around with the structure making site still usable. Scary and impressive at the same time.
Ars Technica also decided not to mess around with the structure and applied revolution/resistance theme to the top banner. Similar image was placed on the dedicated article and the whole site was also usable.
