My new website design -maybe

Despite having told you all that I was going to do up my own website last year, I never actually did it. Interestingly none of you picked me up on it, so I will have to crack my own whip it seems.

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve played with a few designs, and this is my current favourite. It is just a rough, but gives you a good idea of what the finished product might look like.

Now don’t worry that you can’t read the text, it was all just demo text written to fill the space. I’ll also probably put something on the left side where at the moment there just seems to be a lot of wall. I’m thinking about adding some hidden hyperlinks on the bricks and the cat, but more on that once I’ve actually launched to site.

So please give me your feedback. I won’t be setting a release date any time soon, so you can pass on your comments any time over the next few weeks at least (more likely over a month). Feel free to leave your comments here, or send them through Facebook or email me direct through the contact page on my current (template) website.

Thanks for all your help!

  1. Hey Nat – I think it looks gorgeous! LOVE the wall, and I wouldn’t feel too pressured to fill up some of the blank wall with more words and links. The assymetry is good. In fact, I would be tempted to try it without the middle block of text. How did you learn to do this? I’m thinking I need to go do a web design course or something. – Ellen

  2. Hi Ellen,
    Thanks for the feedback. I did it up in Photoshop, but I think I need to draw the cat in Illustrator as it doesn’t seem to scale down very well. Believe it or not that is a real stone wall which I applied a few effects to. I love working with Photoshop, it is so much fun if you can get yourself a copy, and it is really easy to work out. If I ever run into a problem where I can’t do something I just Google it to find the answer.
