Comments for new site, please

The red text is very difficult to read against the black background in higher resolutions. Perhaps a slightly different shade could be used. At 800x600 the background appears to have white speckled about...Is it supposed to be that way?

 

You have kept the theme very well throughout.

The background (clients choice) is supposed to look like stars.

 

Maybe, you can suggest that the effect didn't succeed as planned??? I didn't even notice them at 1024x768...... :?

I can see the background at 1024x768... little white, green, red and blue specs with a twinkling star here and there... I think that the background looks perfect the way it is...

 

might want to have thumbs of the book covers or at least a description though... also the prices seem kinda high (yikes!)

Immediate impression: I like it. The background gives it a mystical

feeling.

It's awful*, but the target market will probably love it.

 

* I hate any site that has a dark coloured background, it makes it look 1998 Geocities Homepage style.

Totally agree, although I hope I managed to do it slightly better than they did back then!

Ever time I see a website black or bright back grounds they remind me of sex sites. And I then think that the site is going to be seedy and click out

beforer the page finishes loading.

 

Keep trying , its the only way you become a better designer,

 

I always check out other website who have the same theme to get

ideas and then come up with a totally new theme.

 

 

GOOD lLUCK

I do know what you mean. I did do a search for similar sites but they were either badly designed or had a similar type background. Also, it's the kind of background the owner wants so kind of got my hands tied.

 

I'm still trying to think of a compromise though...

Classic situation to be in.

Client doesn't listen, a friend tells him the website sucks.

He then tries to get you to redesign for free, you so no-way.

Then he tries to move onto another designer.

 

On sites with client imput, I let then know from the begining that any changes

with "their design" will be charged.

 

You can push a donkey to water but you can't make him drink.

The worst part is that the design refects on our design ability.

So now I do not place my link on the very fine designs.

 

regards
