Opinions Wanted...

So Andrew is redoing my website for me. Making it look more professional, getting it off of Geocities, etc. Every so often he asks me questions about content, target audience, what I want to use it for, etc. Today he sent me this image and this comment/question.

"So after working for two months on a layout for your web page, I've FINALLY come up with something I don't hate. Honestly, I've been shuffling things and changing them and scrapping them completely about 25 times. I have a folder of bad ideas. So anyway, do you think I should keep going with this one, or keep working?"

At first when I saw it I thought it looked a little too simplistic. (And I have no idea what he wants to put on the inside. I'm guessing that when clicking on links that's where stuff shows up, but here it looks a little plain.) However, then after looking at it longer I think it's grown on me. I really like the font, and I love the little sketch of the toolbelt. He did a good job with that! Anyway, I am opening this up to any suggestions. Also, if you have any positive comments to say about your Toolbelt I'd love to include your comments on the site.

I realised that one of my problems was that I'm used to designing for text, and there isn't a lot of text to this (except for the testamonials). So hopefully this design will be more image-friendly.

Oh, and yes, things will be in the big blank space, but this is the framework for the whole page.

And why are the last three blog entries about me?

Chris said...

Three? I thought only two were about you? And Mel and Chris both told me they think it looks like a tombstone.

I didn't want to add my input yet until others did - that's why I held off. And since I told you last night, I figured I was safe.

But yes, I think it looks like a tombstone with a snazzy pink addition.

I, for one, love the toolbelt. I thought I was the hottest thing going in Minneapolis last year! I didn't look at the page and think tombstone. I would have to see what it looks like finished-maybe some real photos of the toolbelts with tools in them? I think so far so good! I'm excited for you!
