    Site Design - warning, large image.

    I really need some crit on this... I like it, but it doesn't seem.. quite right, I get that its too blue, but I'm not sure what other colours would work with with it. I like the peachy background personally, I tried out a peach to khaki background, which worked better than I expected, but it didn't fit. Its for my bussiness site, as a webdesigner/graphic artist. If you were needing a website created, and saw this kind of a design, would you look further or click the back button? If you're thinking the back button, what would improve it? I'm good at working to specifications, but working with no guidelines of my own, I'm kinda lost as to how to finish it.

    Hands and legs are mine, the hair, eyes and lips are my younger sisters - she's so gorgeous *sigh*

    Oh, and one more thing, Madster - please refrain from posting on this topic, you have a tendency to kill threads.

    I like it, and I would continue, it gives a sense that you didn't just bung your company to together in a day, you spent time on it.

    I'll have a think on some changes, and get back to you.

    Thanks!

    I actually DID bung it together in a day... I just feel it needs to be properly polished off. I was considering going for a techno sort of interface and integrating the blue images into it. But I like the arty, more spartan look to be honest. Just plain blue and white was much too hard on the eyes though...

    You did? Well, could've fooled me...

    Perhaps you need another...thing...in the big, gaping part of the white. But not to use the blue, or, at least the same shade of blue. By 'thing' I mean a picture or signature, perhaps your company's logo.

    What programe did you use?

    Right...Well what about the bottom right corner? Something flashy and solid that catches your eye, see what I mean? Do you have the company's logo?

    Well to be honest I'd really like to use one of my sister's features at the logo. I used photoshop by the way. But I think you're right, something solid would balance up the page, the text menus and content would work nicely with a copy right notice and contact details complete with logo down the bottom.

    Also, I tried playing around with the faded lines... I'm not sure if I mind it either way... your thoughts?

    No problems. Thanks so much for your help. I think the logo idea has really balanced it out...

    Personally, for art websites, I find those organic looking fonts to look a little cheezy. I like a cleaner, more buisness like font myself, but that's just me.

    I'm looking more for some way to polish off the design itself... but I'm getting warmer I think...

    I've never been inspired by a ripple, although I've been often inspired by dreams. The ripple motto sounds too LiveJournal "cutesy" for any website trying to impress people, but would probably work well for a personal gallery-type site.

    The blurry half head at the bottom also doesn't look like much more than a bad Filter effect...

    I love the freedom of Public Forums, where all members have the same opportunity to view and comment! Isn't that just SO pathetic???Site Design - warning, large image.
