  • Yet another web site Crit...

    Hi Folks

    I've always been too scared of posting any of my work in here!

    My original background is in movable type, through to cut and paste, finally to Quark XPress, Indesign, Illy, Freehand, Photoshop, etc.

    I've recently been trying my hand at web design and launched a site this morning for a client. I would really like some feedback from you folks (and yes, I've dug out my thickest jumper and an overcoat!).

    Site is here:
    http://www.questbulgaria.com

    Be gentle please!

    Looks good! Is it using a custom CMS or an open source CMS?

      Thanks Mike. Standard Joomla stuff with a load of Joomla components bolted on. Fair bit of hacking around in the css files to get the desired look but it came together reasonably well in the end (well, that's my opinon, I'm sure there will be more crits in here shortly to correct that!).

        Au contraire - I think it looks good! I'm also branching into webdesign and am just taking a look at MODx. Did it take long?

          Thanks Kate! It wasn't too bad as the client already had an existing site so the actual content was there. It was a matter of a complete redesign, adding some new stuff (Member Area, Classified Directory, Business Directory, Events Calendar, etc.).

          From the initial specification and my mock-up of the front page and section pages in Photoshop I would say it's been around five weeks from starting the redesign, fine tuning to launch this morning.

          (having said that my caffeine and nicotine levels have gone up somewhat during that time!)

            For a site that size I would think that's good - well done! I'm just negotiating on my first real (paying client) website. . .

                I usually stay away from justified text but I've been asked to do it for large format exhibit intro text. I have I'm talking ~400 words, set at 34pt Futura. What's the general 'rule' for justified?

                Comment on I am feeling frustrated in my job search?
                BlueCrab
                I agree with this sentiment. Graphic design in respect to only doing print work is becoming secondary, and therefore much more competitive. Finding a job that involves some graphic design is a good start...
