i have been playing around w/ a lot of different things in cs3 lately and ended up with this as a possible front page for a website this afternoon

new website homepage idea


totally different, but another possibility....thoughts?
idea #3

if you do stick with this- i like the colors.

my other thought is that if i were to come across your page i'd want to see at least one of your pictures on the main page. something to entice me to enter your website and look at others.

Wavey. Nice.

I find it extremely difficult to decide on a font.

The font is great becuase its easy to look at.


I cant say that I like the colors. I say brighten them up a little more.
I agree with Natalie about having one picture on the front to make people want to look further.

thanks all

i'm still up in the air on how i was to present my links...i was thinking small thumbnails of different types of photos, so that would put some of my work on the front page

choosing a font is extremely difficult, so i went w/ something very very simple and easy to read

i had a version w/ brighter colors, but i felt it took away from the font, which is what i'm trying to sell...my name and work, not fancy colors...but i understand what you're saying

thanks again for all your feedback so far!

The colors seem a bit feminine. The design is interesting, the text looks good.
Personally I am not a fan of a Splash Page. Why make the viewer take another step to get into your website?

Maybe the image above becomes smaller and is used as the "logo" in the upper portion of your homepage? Maybe bring the text down lower so it sits on top of the design?
Your homepage would include some links and maybe some photos?

Maybe not?

Just my initial gut feelings.

Are you going to be doing mainly product, still life, or artwork photography? That is what the second one says to me.

still like the first one better, it's more "logoish"

the 1st one. the apple make you seem more like an apple farmer then a photographer.

I like the second one, but I still say change the color on the first one and go with that.

at this point i'm sure neither of these will be used...i'm just going through a huge brain storming process

brian...mainly portraits/landscapes really...which doesn't really work w/ the apple, i know. it's hard to pick a certain picture of a certain individual to put up though...i just don't know

thanks again for all your feedback guys

Personal taste, but think Clean and Simple. Make it easy, not flashy. Let your work do the talking.

I like the first one. Color and design is fresh. Cannot be mistaken for propane delivery company. It says 'hey I've got the sensitive skills to guide this portrait process'.
