Home Forums Other Version two of my web development website Re: Version two of my web development website


Thanks for the reply, I take into account everything you’ve mentioned, and will reflect on them accordingly as I continue to develop my website.

I’m just trying to get the homepage perfect, before I move onto the other pages. I understand what you mean about the rollovers for the quote and email/mobile buttons, these are things which I’ve thought about all along and (sorry, failed to mention in my previous post) thought these were a too ‘in your face’ when hovered, these are something I’ll be trying to think of a new way to make a new rollover effect, perhaps not a text change, but a colour change for the background perhaps?

Can I ask peoples opinions on the colour, I am new to working with dark colours, they really haven’t been a choice of mine to use, simply because getting the mix of the colours right with dark black, can be challenging, my other opinion on colour of using was having an electric blue colour, so it carries the same bright feel it has now. Do the yellow/red and dark colours go well in this design?

I am very happy so far, because, this design has allowed me to explore many types of design, and like you mentioned Luminated in your post about the menu effects, I wanted to try to carry a professional, yet-personal feel, and show off much skills and techniques in design on my page that I am capable of. I like the pencil effect, and the rollovers, simply because each rollover is different, circled AROUND, line THROUGH and scribble UNDERNEATH. You could argue my site is more a site like a marketing company would have, as I am a marketing student aswel, and I have techniques used on marketing websites in my head, now and probably at the time of designing it, and I think this is where that personal-yet-professional idea/theme comes from.

I’ll take into consideration what you’ve said, and over the next few hours/days look into making changes to the quote and email rollovers, but the menu is going to be something hard to detach from, as I spent too long getting right, and had so many other opinions and input directed towards them, I’ll need to come to some sort of centralised decision.

Thanks for your time giving me input, and thank you for reading my reply Luminated, and anyone else reading.
