New design for VicZcar
Posted 12 July 2005 - 10:56 PM
This is an early draft of the overall look of the site. It will probably take a very similar format to that of classiczcars.com since I like how the latest photos and forum activity is displayed on the front page etc..
Now before you say anything yes the website header looks wrong I realise It needs some work as it looks out of place however all the same it gives you an idea of the layout and concept I'm working on.
So see the attached file.

Looks sweet. Noice carbon fibre look
A comment or two. Not sure if you need to have two menu systems so close to each other. I understand the need for text based menu for accessibility, but I feel that the current incarnation is a bit of over kill. Also, did you notice that the menus don't match? Eg, sign up vs. register, etc.
I like the little box outs, that're cool. Sort of like the old school portlet websites (or is that style back again, I must stop playing so much MAME).
An idea that I've got is remove the Navigation Portlet and replace with the Latest Gallery Uploads. In place of the Latest Gallery Uploads you could have a portlet with info about what the site is about or something??
I like the colours, just a shame that not all the Datsun colours are present though.
Overall though, I like the design. It will be cool to see it implemented and live.

Yeah it is a sorta carbon fibre look. I originally thought about the old Datsun colours myself but I figured a nice modern look would be the ticket it's by no means a final product but it will give you an idea.
The picture of the Z will be in the background of the website it will give it that layered look when you scroll through some sites and the background stays stationary.
MOM the search button is up the top there mainly to fit in with website design convension next to it will be a box to type your search in and some drop down box next to that to pick what section of the site to search.
The actual buttons will change colours as you move the mouse over them I was thinking a nice orange would catch the users attention.
So you like to play MAME games too Matt I have a big collection of games i've put most of them on my Xbox .

Big mistake I reckon asking people what they think of your new web page design since it is all a matter of personal opinion!
However you asked and I like page 2 and suggest you listen only to constructive opinion.
Page 2 almost looks corporate and thats a fantastic achievement.
Good Luck sensational effort!
