  • My First Style Design

    Became a member this past week and have spent the past 3 days working on this design. I needed it to match my website (that is still under development).

    So please have a look and tell me what you think.

    Thanks.

    http://server945.gisol.com/~nurv for the website itself to see the page layout itself.

    For a first tryout you did some very nice work there. Congratulations on your new asset (design/style wise and forum software wise).

    One thing that always annoys me on web sites is their header. Your header also takes up almost 1/3 of my screen (1024x resolution) It really shows nothing that I want to read. That is my only down side to your site. Don't take it personal, since it is a personal preference of mine.

    Looking good! Especially for a first week of vBulletin-ing.

      Tis very nice for your first go. Criticism:

      - your curves in places are a bit jagged
      - On the nav buttons and the sideblock header bits the gradient behind the text which i guess is meant to look liquidy is a bit too sharp. You might want to smoothen that out and it will look nicer
      - I don't like that flashing after clicking on the nav buttons at all
      - You have times new roman fonts in your module boxes on the homepage.

      Other than this - its a nice design. Good job!

        Thanks for the comments.

        xiphoid - Unfortunately when I design a website, I design it at with my monitors resolution at 1280x1024. This tends to be a problem sometimes since most peoples resolution is at 800x600 or 1024x768...

        So I gues you could say it's designed for 1024x768 but best viewed at 1280x1024. lol

        mist - which curves? At 1280x1024 the curves look fine. As are as the nav buttons go, you can only do so much with small images. However, I will look into smoothing those out some.

        Ah, my blinkit buttons. Come on now.. you don't like those. lol... Me either. I was just testing out some coding and I really don't like it much myself. I will be removing that flashing soon.

        As for the Times New Roman font, I will be switching to Verdana soon.

        Thanks again for your comments.

            working on a redesign as we speak. I've scaled the header from 205 height to almost just a little over 100 height... Will have something tomorrow for yall to look at...
