  • [*:1bknox54]I don't really like the background.
    [*:1bknox54]The three-point gradient looks a bit unprofessional to me.
    [*:1bknox54]I think the white part joined to the header image should be part of the header image rather than white.

thanks for the tips simon, i agree with the gradient thing, i wasnt happy with the color scheme, ill go back and redo it tommorow, i need to add some more shading to the white part, i have a vision for that, but it didnt quite work out, ill post my final some time tommorow.

Thanks

Kevin

Also, assuming it is a business, IMO it should say "Contact Us" rather than "Contact Me".

well its a self owned/ran business, theres really only one guy. Ill probally change it any way just because you dont see many 'contact me's lol

Still - "Contact Me" sounds unprofessional to me.

true, ill fix it :P, still working with the layout.... the client really is giving me nothing to go on... just 'make a web page' haha, so its a bit annoying because ill show him something say 'hey about a button like this?' and he says 'looks good but i dont want blue' 'what color do you want?' 'it doesnt matter' lol but were geting some where lol, its a handy man page, im scraping that design above, i like it but its not what i was trying for, ill keep it in my portfolio for now. I think ill create a website that looks kinda like a construction site...hmmmm.. any ways thanks simon, ill be sure to post the final here

okay so i tried a different approach, im kinda playing around with this project because its a volenteer project. i went for a less professional look. In my mind i was thinking of a little kids room, decorated with construction symbols, i only did the header so far, what do you think?

Bright colors are not the way to go when designing a website...especially multiple bright colors. Yellow in particular makes me go "ow my eyes!" ;) Anyway, that's my two cents...perhaps add some shading to make the buttons stand out a little as well...? Good luck! 8)

Very quick and brief try at making a concept of a bootable Paint.NET

Nice concept- I especially like the idea of a bootable version of Paint.net! On the topic of looks, I also like the taskbar, and the way you blended the letters, though I would suggest a slightly different background, possibly one that draws the eye more towards the logo. I like it!

Thanks! I'm working on it as I post. I wish I kept the PDN file!

Edit: Now I'm done!

Click it to download the PDN file. Please note that it is only 75% PDN and only 75% me. I got some of the window border and the background image from a person called Thoosje on another forum.

Jake2k: :D nice design, very shiny and sleek and easy on the eyes, and I especially like the navigation bar, with the lights at the bottom when you move over them, and the bottom...

A webpage I have been working on for an assignment in school. I used paint.net to create most of the graphics.

The homepage

The homepage when a link on the navigation bar is scrolled over

The basic format for all other pages.

Here's another:

Nice! I like it much more than the other one, and it looks so shiny and yet mechanical! The way the rolled over button shines on the mesh is a little detail that makes it that much cooler! 8)

Could you please supply the PDN file?

I'm sorry but I'm new to this forum and I don't really understand what you're asking of me

Click for Deviation...

Paint.NET for digital radios. If you look closely, you will see that the image is Paint.NET running on a radio.

I'm at work so I don't have all my old website to post, but two that I've made recently:

http://www.followtheleaderfoundation.com

Made for a client, site isn't mine but the layout is and the copyright belongs to me, see Licence link at bottom for more. A bit simplistic.

http://aaziz.org

My personal website. Not just a bit simplistic, a lot simplistic. I stopped coding the Blog CSS half way through, and I'm going to code my own blog system anyways (Python on Planes or Ruby on Rails if I can, otherwise either Perl or I'll just stick with PHP).

Let me know what you think for both sites. I do realise that there are broken links on aaziz.org, but that's fine.

He means the original file, in .PDN format, if possible.
