  • My website WIP

    Alright I haven't got to work on this for sometime since school started up, but I have some time now and I want to knock it out so that I have a website to send everyone to

    Here is what I have so far, I would say it's nearly complete but I want to do something with the navigation

    I got a lot of this from several different tutorials and just some playing around with different settings and images, and brushes as well

    Please be as brutal as possible without being a dick, thanks!

    Image is a bit too small to give a decent crit ... can you send larger, or a live link somewhere?

      You can click on the image.

      Too many textures for me, is there a point to them or is it just a style you like?

        I hope you're optimizing all the images for the web, and not just using "Save as".

          I like this style, I could think about taking the textures back but the only thing the textures are in are the bg and side bars really, I may change the images for the posts to not have textures because I'm not really feeling it

          yeah I will whenever I get to the point of slicing it up

            it's ok - kind of old school - 5-8yrs ago or so. And there are a lot of sites that have this same look.

            black text on the dark brown doesn't work well.

              You do have a point, there are a lot of designs out there that are like this, I'm really struggling to come up with something that is original and that I'm into, I don't know what to do

              This site is going to be basically a portfolio/blog for myself, I know something clean usually works but I don't have any sort of inspiration in my head right now

              Do you guys have and sites that serve the same purpose as mine that I can look at? Or have some tips on what looks good and works well with this kind of set up?

                A little hard to read on the nav bars.
                Are you really going to be selling ad space? Is this for your portfolio?

                  it's ok to have a grunge feel - you just need to develop it more - yours is currently kind of a bland grunge, which doesn't convey anything good.

                  Look here at a list of great websites utilizing texture:

                  some other good examples:

                    I'm thinking it may be more of affiliate websites that I don't get paid to have there, just other good sites to check out and maybe google ad words after the first 3 posts or something, not sure though

                      If your logo is what you have shown in the subway poster, the reason I ask how your logo is illuminated is because those skinny letter strokes and serifs at the size you have indicated on your wall (in...

                      Thanks for the feedback for my assessment, I was a bit vague with the brief (the elements are to market the studio not decorate the studio) - your comments on the wall sign were very helpful, it's the...
