Sneak Peek

I don’t think I’m quite ready to ask the Executive Director or the Assistant Director to look at my LSM website redesign ideas. I’ve put my first three Photoshop comps on one page with notes, and I think I’m going to wait until I have an even half-dozen before I give them the URL and ask them for a critique.

However… I think I’ll let you guys have a look-see and let me know what you think of the designs I have up so far. Leave me some feedback, good or bad, in the comments hereโ€”maybe I can improve on my next three comps.

Oh, and I’d really appreciate it if no one, ah, *appropriates* my layout ideas? I’m really proud of myself for coming up with the second two, and I may recycle any layouts I don’t use for the LSM site. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not that I think that any of my regulars here would swipe my ideas, but I get 30 entire hits a day, and that means that there are about 20 strangers reading this shit. o.O

  1. hm, i like #1 and #3 – i like #2 but you always have that odd duck w0t’s resolution is set on “total crap” and the 3 column thing makes them scroll right.

    that being said the, the first one looks more like a store (it could be the product on the front page but i cant help being reminded of an llbean catalogue), and the third one looks more like a site about people.

    make sense? does that help? ๐Ÿ˜€ i like #3 best. it’s clean enough to be simple and eye-catching enough to be pleasing.

  2. very cool. i like #2, simple easy. perhaps with somewhat transparent photos top and bottom where the background is now and have only maybe 20 or so pixels of background as a border.

    fyi, i’ve always liked how ‘lil b has done his sites with a collage of 4 color images in the background:

    www.lilraskals.com/ (not yet done)

    but, like sheryl says, #3 is cool too. anyway take my advice w/ a grain or two… you know how difficult i can be -you used to work w/ me.

  3. you sneaky devil. ^_^

    I agree that #2 needs some photo bg to spice up its life. when I put together that comp, I had no decent pics to include, and was even trying to come up with designs that wouldn’t require pics. now I have a couple few decent shots that will serve nicely. I may make a #2a with a fixed, nonrepeating background gif in the blue field.

    oh, and each of the squares will probably be 250px or 300px on a side, so poor saps with teeny monitorz can still read pretty much everything. ๐Ÿ˜›
