    Technically I don't limit changes, I just stop at three versions of the same thing. Once we get to version 4, version 1 gets tossed. The 'final' is mostly for me, so I can grab the right file quickly...

    I wouldn't package everything multiple times. I generally don't even work in a draft format. So I figure that maybe 1 out of 5 projects will have multiple drafts. But those drafts will be useless later...

    No they don't have access to the ID files. Sorry, by "they" I meant the people in the dept before me.

    Hi,

    I'm doing a design for our com's client, Quebec Leisure.
    It's a event company basically.

    I've spent quite a while coming up with this visual. I'm kinda both satisfied and not satisfied with it. Basically, the website itself (without the content) seems a bit too plain...

    Opinions and suggestions will be very much appreciated. Thks!

    I good

    I like the design. It's clean and simple. The layout is well executed and serves the company well. I guess the only thing that isn't really pleasing to me is the gradients, but that is just personal opinion. Does there logo actually have the photoshop glow effect or did you add that?

      I do think that the design is clean and simple, but IMO it's maybe a bit too much focused on the 'leisure' part of Quebec Leisure. It's very soft, in colour and in texture, but the actual content of the site makes me think of things like 'excitement' 'entertainment' 'fun' 'activeness', essentially it's showing opportunities to go out and do stuff (and the contributions that the company has made to help out with this), at least that's my impression of the content.

      I'd suggest a bit bolder/more modern header colour/style...

      I love Quebec for it's vibrant culture and lively people. And the music.

        The logo was a headache, dark blue for the 'Q' and white for the 'L'. (It's not designed by me)

        Thus I need to do something to allow both letter to appear strong at the same time.

          Yes you're right, that's the nature of my client's business. Maybe I'll try that, thanks.

          Guess I'll use strong colours.
