Monthly Skinning Competition Discussion -- #4 ended

Recommended Posts

I made an example of the nav bar I'm going to use. I think the light white reflection is a little off.

Opinions please?

Sorry for double posting but I just finished some touches on my entry and thought I'd post it before bed.

I think it looks nice, what about everyone else?

If I may...

The organization makes it feel off balance, with three different widths (header, separator bar, content area) making it rather difficult for the eye to follow.

I think an organization scheme with a more well-defined structure would better suit the layout, such as these:

altlayout1.png

altlayout2.png

That's my two-cents. The style (glassy look) looks quite nice. The only thing that bugs me is the distracting organization. :)

Looks better! :)

Other than "replacement" breaking out of the outline. :P

Just so you know, to remedy that problem, I keep a generic HTML file that contains only a couple of paragraphs of Lipsum. I set the width and alignment to the currently desired settings, take a screen capture, and paste it into the layout. This helps keep everything even and adds that "I did this in a browser" feel to the page.

Nice, Yata! The only thing that's bugging me is that the 'wide' in the main text has no hyphen. It looks like:

...and a w

ide variety of...

If it's too late to change it, don't worry a bit. It looks great.

Edit: Oops, looks like I'm a fraction of a second late.

Special thanks to Crazy Man Dan for taking charge while I was gone. Have a :mtdew:!

It seems nice, I'm not to pleased with the logo at the top, though.

Also, the mini windows of the toolbars and a little distracting, but thats just my opinion, I went for a totally different concept than you :wink:

I've submitted my entry. Comments?

Edit:

Thanks Helio!

Blast, I was hoping I wouldn't miss anything :P

Also a huge thank you to CMD for the centering tip :mtdew: :mtdew: :mtdew:

Well, your main theme is different from the logo... it's hard to put to words.

I guess what I'm saying is the logo looks out of place from the rest of the page.

Is that a small amount of self advertising on our newest member's entry? Take a gander at the 'advert' s/he has used, there's a website bottom left to it and it's real offering the same program in the advert. I found that amusing but is it allowed?

Nice going Yata, just as swanky as aguba's, it'll be hard to decide if nothing better comes along.

Yeah, aguba did a nice job as well.

Stephan, the only problem I have ix some of your boxes are sort of bulky, I just thin they could have been sized down.

Nice design, though :)

The boxes include a bit of information when you mouse over the link. I thought about that ;) I thought it'd be clear when i marked it together with the Download Tab :?

Looking good stephan. My only problem with it is that I think the two 'boxes' with the fading white gradient need a border. Other than that, awesome.

Methinks the fading white boxes look perfect as they are. A border would confine the space, and it wouldn't then make sense why they have the same background design as the page background.

My one criticism is the bars (|) between the links. It doesn't match up with the link highlight, so it looks like it doesn't belong. You could replace the bar characters with a 1 pixel-wide line that spans the entire height of the link row to make it look more cohesive.

Something such as this:

Besides that, it looks nice. My personal favorite so far.

I should indeed have thought of that... I even use it for my own flash site :?

That is ofcourse a problem... I find it way too colorful anyway, but this ofcourse lowers the quality...
