I Am one of the owners of a portal site which was just about coasters until recently, when 2 other owners decided to branch out and become something like http://www.freeserve.com
i have been given the job of design, and am well...stuck :] i have been looking at sites, and a blank dreamweaver screen for 4 hours and am stuck!
any ideas or inspiratiopns are welcome
The following sites have links to loads of good looking sites. They may give you some ideas.
I don't think you can do much about the layout in which the articles are presented, so you should concentrate on the header.
Have you thought of any colors yet? And what kind of shapes would be suitable?
Don't hesitate to draw a sketch, the nicest thing of DreamWeaver is that you can erase a failure without leaving a trail and start from scratch :D
i've done both of those things :]
Elledan...i have complete control of the page...it MAY be a database driven site, but may not be so who knows...
i love the look of http://www.mycoding.com but i'm not well...good enough to emulate that
thankyou all for your time
any ideas are still appreciated
Alex, if you still don't feel any inspiration, you would better force the thoughts of the site out of your mind and start doing something else. If ideas doesn't come now, they won't come soon.
Let your unconsciousness do the work while you're having fun :)
