    Hi, I'm new here.

    I wanted to show our complete redesign of the NFB website.

    I was wondering what you thought of it.

    nfb.ca

    Many thanks

        salut! bienvenue au gdf.

        it reminds me a lot of one of the cbc micro-sites...dang it...i can't remember...i'll have to post it later when i've remembered it...darn!

        but, right on - well done. i was on the old nfb site every now and again, so i can say with some authority that it looks a lot sleeker and is easier to navigate.

        there used to be quite a nice bit of information on animators on the old site. not having taken the time to explore your new site fully, i haven't seen that old resource anywhere yet...is it still available? or am i somehow mistaken?

          Hi uncle carbunkle

          I think the website you were reffering to is CBC Radio 3.

          Yeah the big background picture thing is mostly what makes them look alike, and I'm pretty sure it was a source of inspiration for the designer as well.

          The animators informations would now be in the Portraits section. If not, they might be in our life-long to-do list

            right on! i'll check it all out fully, later.

            stick around and contribute - we have to impose our 'canadian content' on the world.

                I am in the process of learning FLASH. This website is fun to be on. nice work! I am not to sure about the FULL-SCREEN resolution. I personally hate when websites Hi-jack my desktop like that.

                Very fun though

                  Hey thanks, yeah I know the fullscreen mode isn't loved by all. There was a debate here to put the Flash version in the normal browser window, but the design was really made to be displayed fullscreen...

                  I don't know if you've seen it, my favorite section is Find a film, it was a big challenge to make this collapsable interface, all animated while keeping it 100% dynamically-driven (all the texts are in PHP/XML), and IMO the designer was very inventive in thinking that one out.

                  (when you search, the interface collapses to show the results underneath, and when you pick a film, the search results also collapses to reveal the film infos, and you can get back to both pages by re-expanding them - they get in the upper-left corner)

                    It's not an issue of inexperience in web design work. My guess is that you put the site together without putting much thought into its purpose. As Calebninja notes, 'It seems to be a mix of a personal...

                    Yeah, seriously ya prick.. I'm well aware that my website needs a lot of work.. That's why I'm asking for help on what to specifically change. I haven't done a whole lot of web design work.

                    You strike me as the type of guy who is well-accustomed to software and systems. The average user like the guys in our front office, can break things unintentionally by just looking at them. Either system...
