Changed the about page to be more general.May 13, 2011 at 6:11 pm #76259
The new logo looks like something out of the 90’s – probably would’ve been cool at the time, but things have moved on since then! Here’s something that I whipped up quickly for a logo:
Notice that I didn’t use the actual name “I Need Webpage” – it’s awkward to say because, as I’ve mentioned, it’s not proper english.May 13, 2011 at 6:12 pm #76260
I like it. I’ll whip something up.May 13, 2011 at 6:36 pm #76261
Logo should be centered now.May 13, 2011 at 6:49 pm #76262
Unless anyone has a screen that is larger than 1080p. If you do, help me figure out why
margin: 0 auto;
wasn’t centering it.
Still working on a 2nd new logo.May 13, 2011 at 9:48 pm #76265
New logo! (again) More modern.May 13, 2011 at 11:00 pm #76266
COLOR!May 14, 2011 at 4:55 pm #76210
Again, it’s still a logo from the 90’s. The font, the strong bevel, the strong gradient, etc.
Have a look through here for inspiration: http://logopond.com/May 14, 2011 at 4:59 pm #76211
So… Simpler? I see a lot of matte looking stuff there. That was the look I was originally going for with the rest of the site.May 14, 2011 at 5:13 pm #76163chrisburtonParticipant
Because @TheDoc gave you a suggestion on your logo doesn’t mean you should automatically accept it and use as your own (which you did with minor changes). Dark websites are not bad looking. Take time with your work, you’re making very minimum changes and keep coming back for suggestions. You need inspiration other than “90’s” style websites.May 14, 2011 at 6:05 pm #76097
I understand that; I just really liked the “mouse clicking on logo” thing. I’m not looking at “90’s” style websites for inspiration (at least not consciously). I believe I have a screenshot of what it used to look like. It was terrible. Regardless of how far it has to go, its come a loong way.May 14, 2011 at 6:44 pm #76089chrisburtonParticipant
I only say that because you had to have gotten inspiration on something for you to choose this route in design. My very first website was dark as well and my logo was pure 3D which I still have somewhere, unfortunately. Not sure why you think you have to use gradient on just about everything? Can you post a few sites you really like so we can get a brief look of your style thinking?May 14, 2011 at 7:09 pm #76090
By all means use the idea. My main emphasis was on the modern font.
We all had to start somewhere. Fortunately many years ago my harddrive was fried and I lost all of my old designs! Typography is no easy task – I’m not very good at it myself. Keep on looking at successful design and try to figure out why they are successful, chances are you’ll start to see the patterns and be able to emulate them.May 14, 2011 at 7:11 pm #76083
Yeah, I want to use an svg font, but there is too little support, so I can’t reasonably use that in place of a logo.
I really like the design of the Wacom site.
I also like a lot of the stuff relating to google chrome, such as the download page.
I like the design of gmail.May 14, 2011 at 7:46 pm #76036JohnnybMember
Whenever I’m short on inspiration for a project I take a few minutes to browse through deviantart. It usually get my creative juices flowing again.
Maybe have a think about who you’re aiming the site at, and what kind of impression you’re trying to create. And then design it’s aesthetic accordingly.
