I created this website months ago http://www.ryancoker.com.
The code is embarrassing simply because it was my first attempt at building a site via all css.
I wanted to break away from your standard navigation.
what I want to know is this….
â€¢Do you think this navigation system works, or does it get a little annoying?
â€¢ Since I used absolute values to place the navigation and logo there is no real easy way (that i know of) to center the picture while keep the bg image fixed. Do you think that this looks ok on wide screen monitors?
â€¢ any other thoughts comments… do you think this design works?
I have found that designing for your self is one of the hardest things as a designer. I feel 20times more critical on this design than any design for a client.
Your design is very orgininal, but I am sorry to say that I don’t like the way pages open. In one or other way it just don’t feel natural. I find it hard to describe, maybe some other people got this same feeling? I think a site like this where you present you work to potential customers, the navigation should be easy and natural…
It’s also original. Maybe add a little more color? It’s now – I don’t want to offend you, just say how it comes over to me! – a little old-fashion maybe? Try to make is a little moderner I think, some fresh colors somewhere? This is just my thought, maybe you have choosen for those colors with a reason?
