I Need A Review Please.

Posted 08 September 2002 - 04:31 PM

I've seen some of your guys sites on here and was kind of hesitant to get a check on mine.I guess the only way to get better is have people tear it up and tell you what needs work and what looks fine.So here goes.Honesty can only help me. :crazy:

Oh nice ! Whats wrong with this ?! its a Nice layout , the logo is vary cool , the header is nicly done , mouse overs are nice , its simple but it has alot of good spice to it , i really like it , some stuff i would change is on the main page , i would move " Design Resources " under the blue header graphic , it looks out of place to me , also , the S in solo project looks kinda funny when its so far from the " olo project " maybe do something else with that , eather put it closer together or take the s out and have it a whole instead of split off like beside the cool logo or something i dunno , and as for the side links , maybe have news on top or do something with that , make it smaller or something becuase their on every page , and the " links area " shouldnt be a main focal point of the site , i dunno but thats another suggestion , other then that i really like the site , Good work :alien:

i like it, but like MDG said:

Quote

the S in solo project looks kinda funny when its so far from the " olo project "


something isn't quite kosher w/you layout grid though (i'm a little sideways right now, i can tell you better later). i'd say the right menubar is a little too wide.

on the good side, I *love* the color scheme. very nice (as well as well used, not too flat, not to plastic). 4.5/5

the buttons on the side imo are pretty large...
i have trouble focusing and trying to read the text because im distracted by them.
the dropshadow effect is a lil overused on the site... maybe take it out of the main content area and top nav or something like that...

other than that i like.

I definitely like your color scheme and design. Good job. Just a few comments. I agree with capty99 about the buttons being too big. You might want to lower the drop down shadow intensity on the text on your buttons - will be easier to read. The way you layed out your main banner logo, all the elements, have a round depth feel to them, by your use of gradient and color schemes. The way you have your menu, I think clashes with the top images because it's rectangular and no longer rounded like all the other elements above. Maybe make the corners rounded and see how that looks. Also, my collegues and I think you should do something about that grey verticle gradient bar on the right. Also way too much spacing between your main content ("I would like to formally welcome...") and the menu on the left.

Just my 2 cents.

I pretty much agree with everyone here, I think every point brought up pretty much covered it all, in what I saw. Overally I really like the scheme, the way things are done, just some touching up and final touches to polish it off and it would be awesome. Good job man, and never be hesitent to post a site check :D

Excluding the clutter-style image (solo_r03_c02.jpg, et al.), it reminds me of a MetaTools interface (Kai, Poser etc.).

Nicely done mate. The only thing that i would add is to make the layout a bit smaller, as it's awfuly large on an 800x600, and like capty99 said, it gets rather distracting at times. design for maybe 1024x768 and you'll make everything just a bit better :)

site looks good but I am unable to see the menu all I see is the listing for friends and I agree the S needs to be closer

I think parts of this website had to much fun with Photoshop Filters..

The right vertical 'boarder' seperating the side from the grey background, in my opinion is WAY to beveled.. way to thick.

I think you shouldnt seperate the S with the OLO-PRO.. It should be together.

THe 'foreword and site updates' are offset.. think you should align them

Somthing dosnt hit me either with the SOLID black back peices for each catagorey.

yo buddy,

my comments follow :
1 > layout is good
2 > 's' is too distant from the rest therefore it reads 'olo project'
3 > there is this one thing with shadows. it's addictive. when u drop a shade on one ... u automatically do it for the rest until u get a shady thing. in this case there's one everywhere. your design ideas are nearly lost.
4 > portfolio layouts are really good
5 > good luck
6 > keep :)
