Homepage - Work in Progress

Postby djm » May 19th, 2010, 7:10 am

Okey, so we've got our last project for this semester in webbdesign. My project is a website, which inbcludes everything I'm interested in, everything I've done etc. And as a PLUS to this, I've decided to add some minor adverticing on it about THIS website, Darkscarab.com!

But to do that I need to know what I can use, what I'm allowed to spread (images, videos, music, you name it!) and what YOU guys want to have as content on it. Since my design is based on this theme that Justin (AKA IrascibleOne) is using here, I've also decided to check with him (and the rest of you) what I should add, fix and/or remove.

It's STILL a blueprint work since it's only built with simple html with a taste of more advanced CSS and javascript. Although the menu (thanks to Irascible) makes the website feel more alive, and my Image-Gallery (Javascripts) makes it look a liiiittle better I still need to improve my work as a designer. Yes, the website is very boring, but hey, it's blue-print work and I'm missing alot (and I mean ALOT) of content.

Anyhow, the link to it is; http://uddevalla.portalen.it/~09nilssonj
Feel free to look around.

*note; Some of the pages are not yet added as links since they're under some serious maintenance due to scripting-failures in the java section (different javascript sources). And the jQuery, somehow, managed to f*ck up (sorry) while is was trying to change the color-scheme of the menu, backgrounds, hovers etc. On almost every page that's not yet added, such as the music section (where I'll add a player so you can listen to it without downloading). Although it might not yet be done before my vacation. So anyway, as I said, keep in mind that alot of the pages are not yet added.

Design-wise, the first thing that would bother me is the background repeating. I am not sure what size your screen is (so this comment may be irrelevant), but mine is 1920x1080. On a roughly 1280px wide or less your background is good, but if you look at the attached image you can see what I see. Just a little something to be aware of.

As for content you can use, you can use images from the image section if you like. There really isn't much there, but that is what I got. You can always use that Best of DS video that was made a while ago too.

I have 1200x800 screen resolution (13" Macbook Pro).

And thanks. Brektxar said that I could use all of his images. And the Best of DS video will be embedded for sure!

All around, thus far the site is not half bad. :thumbup:

I somewhat dislike the flare in the background though. It seems to be a distraction and is irregularly colored. To me, a background should be graphically appealing, but its first and foremost purpose is to add to the foreground and not contract from it.

Another thing that got to me was the typographical errors. I.E. Roll-playing game should be Role-playing game. Not a big deal, but I am a stickler for spelling.

It looks like you are well on your way to developing this page. I wish you the best!

DFL, thank you. And haha, about the spelling there.. My freidn commented on it seconds before I read your post haha!

and as I've been telling everyone else.. this is not my Priority when it coems to webbdesign. It's my final-project, yes. But it's all about testing javascripts, CSS tags etc. Which is mandetory for a higher grade. The design is crap, the layout sucks and the content.. well.. yeah.. Anyway, I'm working on a website for my borther atm, just something small as a layout test, design test etc. It will be my priority for now and through our summer break. Although, the website is recently started I think it looks kind of nice ^^ and I'm gonna add the same webbsite as an equal, but in 2 different color-schemes. Dark-Sea-Blue and Shadow-Black. (Those two are the layout color-schemes). It won't be fixed with PHP this time since I don't have a PHP-base nor experience :)

Anyhow, here's the beginning of the first layout-fix on brektzars site:
