Monthly Skinning Competition Discussion -- #4 ended

Recommended Posts

Yeah, it's a little large...

That was just a concept I was messing with using the tube oblique plugin. I ended up spending a few extra minutes and making a layout out of it...:D

Besides, we still have over 10 days to finish, so what ever I actually enter(if anything) will be nice and polished.

Or if you're like me, 10 days to start it. Ill try to start tommorow. It does look like theres a ton more people entering this time than last time.

Guess what!? I'm actually doing one this time!

Here's a quick preview of what I'm working on, just so I don't feel left out. The image is cropped because right now I don't have anything more done, but I don't want anyone to know...

Honestly, uH, I made the link bar blue before I ever saw yours. My original plan for the background was to be a greenish pattern, but it looked funny with the blue link bar. I tried making the link bar a greenish color (a little dA-esque), but it just wasn't working.

I'll putz around with it some more, just to try to make it look less like I stole your idea. As for your link bar, the original blue fits perfectly. The med-bright saturated look contrasts nicely against the dark skin.

BB00: Looks cool, but i find the header a tiny bit too... Busy.

CMD: Looks great! I don't see a lot... But it looks cool anyway!

uH: Your menu looks exactly like one of my flash pages' menu :D

EDIT: Okay... it doesn't look the same... But it has some similaritis though ;)

It's classic 10pt Verdana.

You know, I don't use Verdana very often, but both times I've used it in the last month, I've been asked what font it is. Odd... :wink:

Stylus BT, although the letter 'i' has no tittle so I looks a bit dodgy sometimes.

I have many other favourite fonts among which some I don't know why I have them. I don't remember downloading them and there's nothing that special about them for me to have downloaded them in the first place. We should have a 'Show Your Font' thread in the overflow to match 'Show Yourself' and 'Show Your Pets' threads, anyone up for it...?

To justify this little outburst of anecdotes here's a preview of my logo:

It would cooler if it weren't for the white background, don't ask why I kept it there though :?.

The font looks kinda naturey (made up word). Maybe the background should have leaves...

EDIT: I just realized that I passed the 3000 post mark without realizing it.

But seriously, leaves?! Nah, not my cup of tea.

It just so happens that I was perusing CSS Zen Garden in another tab when I read this. Leaves really can look classy, if you do 'em right. :wink:

Why thank you! The problem is, that's grass, and we were talking about leaves. I didn't want to get pwned for a nature technicality. :wink:

Also, I didn't want to come across as arrogant. Dan hates looking arrogant... <_<

Concept #2

  • pdnwebsitepreview2dd4.png

The background color will most likely be changed or even replaced with some sort of texture. As you can see, the right side of the body is quite bare as it is not yet finished.

Thoughts?.. Comments?

@ BuzzKill:

It looks nice, but I'm not so sure about the dual-row navigation. The logo is a bit large for my tastes as well.

I do think it has great potential, though. :)

Isn't the logo a little... big?

Uhmm... No. But since you think it is... here:

Happy now?! :roll:

I guess I'm too minimalist for my own good.

One wouldn't know compared to your posting habits... :lol:
