Argh! It's horrible... [May. 7th, 2006|08:34 pm]
UK Designers


[I'm feeling: |busy]
[I'm working on: |Funker Vogt - History]

I am NOT a webdesigner, nor do I claim to be! I did a little Dreamweaver during college and thats about the sum total of my technical talents. CSS? Yeah, maybe one day...

I'm still learning how to use Dreamweaver/CSS but i'd be grateful for any critique of the website for my internet-based radio station and the work i've done so far. I'm still working on some aspects of the site, so bear in mind its not the finished article...


I've still to do the contact page, online store, playlists and some minor bits. I also want to make a second version of the site with text links for those who have difficulty with the main navigation bar.

I'm hungry, so now its time to eat!
Thanks for your time!

Horrible font in the menu and in the header. Where did you get this? Other than that, there's nothing to comment.

I agree. Although it *does* look better in white-on-red than it does in the almost-unreadable logo at the top.

It looks like it's a sort of sci-fi wannabe font, if that makes sense? It doesn't really seem to fit the feel of the music it's promoting.

Thanks for that guys (or girls!?) ;)

Anyway, i've been messing around as what you saw is still all work in progress. I've changed the font on both the navigation bar and the header image.

Whether it's better or worse...

It's definitely more readable now, but I still think it looks rather more sci-fi than rock. :)

It's supposed to be more sci-fi than rock... :)

Honestly? I think the header's a bit much. If I were you I'd put the 'Industrial EBM Electro' in another font, minus the flames, as it's the sub-title of the site.

Also I'm getting Futura Book as your body font, so I'm not sure what your forcing on the page fontwise, but I'm guessing it's not entirely 'websafe' :)

I'm still messing around with the header and i have about a dozen or so different designs in various fonts and effects so what is up isn't 100% certain to remain.

The stylesheet for the body text should be Century Gothic/Verdana so I don't know how you're getting a different font displayed.
