Hi guys ! So i get my first client and i really need some feedback on the design that i did for him.
http://i.imgur.com/ZsLPtj9.jpg – here is the link to it.
I really need to be good because he can bring me more clients after. Any tips and tricks would help me a lot :)July 19, 2013 at 9:46 am #143720jurotekParticipant
Hmmm…, I haven’t looked yet but, shouldn’t the client feedback and or opinion matter the most?July 19, 2013 at 9:48 am #143721Paulie_DMember
…and an image ain’t gonna get it done.
A link on the other hand….July 19, 2013 at 9:49 am #143722
I know, i am speaking with him now .. just want to get some feedback from more skilled people then me :/
He told me it looks : ” just think the look overall is a little traditional and old fashioned rather than modern and clean”
Don’t have a clue what do to now ? any tips ?July 19, 2013 at 9:50 am #143723Paulie_DMember

You need to ask more questions.
What does he mean. What sites does he think reflect what he wants etc.

By the way…I would have asked this up front.July 19, 2013 at 9:51 am #143724
okey thxJuly 19, 2013 at 4:15 pm #143654
@deeve007 Thank you for the link, will use it of course. But can you tell me what gave you the feeling that is old fashioned ? I am learning everyday to make my design better :)July 19, 2013 at 5:01 pm #143658chrisburtonParticipant
Removing the ribbon graphics is a start.July 19, 2013 at 5:08 pm #143660JoshWhiteMember
One big thing that is screaming dated is that EVERYTHING seems to have a heavy drop shadow. If you do use shadows, just use them sparingly and a bit more subtle.July 19, 2013 at 5:18 pm #143661
@chrisburton yeah i thought so … i did change a little bit.
@JoshWhite i see, maybe you are right, to much shadows.
Here is a updates version of that design, he likes this much more then the last one but still not 100% happy :( http://i.imgur.com/1cVvsqr.jpg
But i don’t know should i use black buttons, he is not happy with them to, so still so much to go, to make him happy :SJuly 19, 2013 at 5:55 pm #143664
@deeve007 that was the same thoughts that i had when i show them that website with the black color on it. But he likes that way i guess. But still need to edit stuffs :SJuly 19, 2013 at 6:05 pm #143626JoshWhiteMember
I feel that you may have went too far with your design changes. From a user friendly standpoint, I think the first concept was a lot easier to look at.
Did he give you ANY specifics about what he didn’t and still doesn’t like? You’ve got to ask a lot of deeper questions because if you are doing what it looks like, you’re just guessing now to try to make the client happy.
He may be reacting positively to the fact that is more than 1 color on the page. Which could indicate just introducing a highlight color to complement the more blue original color scheme would have made the right difference. Make changes that have a purpose behind them. If you just start hacking away at a design it probably won’t turn out very good by the end.July 19, 2013 at 6:25 pm #143628jurotekParticipant
This black background it’s not appropriate for medical website. Maybe for mortuary but not for dentist site. Why don’t you look for inspiration on color schema in his office like: wall colors, furniture, carpet, trims, building color, landscaping and so on. Than you should bring it to your web design to create feeling of reality, familiarity and comfort to potential users (patients).July 19, 2013 at 6:36 pm #143629
Maybe i need to take a sleep, and start fresh tomorrow. You are guys right i am just trying to hard to make my client happy :(.
@deeve007 thx for the examples will look into it !
@JoshWhite I am asking him a lot but he gave me some websites that he likes and a comment about them: http://www.stelzerdental.com , http://www.pointfamilydentistry.com , http://www.grindentistry.com. Hm… i think a good sleep would be a good idea now.
@jurotek thx for the advice will do it for sure !
thank you guys helping me, much love <3 :)
