ajalumley.com
I am currently a student persuing my degree in graphic and web design. I start my first design class on the 18th of January. I was given this site as a christmas gift and it will be used as my portfolio. Be warned as I have not taken any design classes yet the portfolio portion of the site has got some crappy work in it. I am curious about the navigation and layout of the site.

Trimaxs Feasible Design
It's a site to promote my company's services, it's made with css, intended to be user friendly and fast for users in the asian region. I'd love critiques on how to improve the overall feel of the site, what's missing, which part is redundant, etc it's also is designed to be easily updated. ( meaning that I only need to upload image and update 1 html page every time, or editing the link page only )

(WDR comments: Good. This one isn't working. A real designer wouldn't center paragraphs of text on the "About" page. )

Web Design and Graphic Arts Portfolio for Dan Hill
This site is online for the same reason as every other portfolio. It is to show my designs and ideas. Everything on the sites and pics sections are very amature right now. I am in the process of building 4 sites... so please ignore content in those areas... instead focus on how the horizontal-ness of the background forces the eye to the vertical nav bar... also, notice how the site open in frames... I know I know... I am in the process of converting to PHP. Also, I am in the process of designing a new site.

Artis Design Studio.
We just updated our studioís website. We're a small home-based studio working out of Houston, Texas. Since weíre not native English speakers (though fluent on it), we would like primarily get critiqued on the copy throughout the website. But since design is the thing here, we'd like to hear all your opinions of the siteís general layout, navigation, usefulness, etc... Thanks in advance. Robin P.

Information about a new East Midlands design agency
Creativetypes is a new Design & Advertising agency in Leicester. Our team are familiar with producing advertising and designs for our clients but it's quite different when you have to produce something for yourself. It would be very beneficial for our business to understand how other designers and non-designers feel about our website in terms of design, content and usability. Constructive criticism will enable us to see it from different perspectives and improve the site.

Showcase site for graphic design studio re-public
To mark a new era for danish design studio re-public, new identity, new clients, new employees, new times, we designed a new site. The design of the site is based on the new identity which is black and white and consists of a series of black blocks in various combinations. The menu is placed in the bottom block and the content is masked in the two top blocks, wich is consistent with the rest of the re-public identity. Flash and XML was developed by swedish freelancer Mikael Widerstrom (www.widerstrom.net).

Reviewing Web Sites

One designer recently said

"You learn good design by looking at bad design."
... another states
"You learn good design through the works of others."

Both of these are correct -- but only to a certain point. We believe that you learn good design through the works of others only when you make an effort to actually evaluate the work and state why you think it works or doesn't work. Only then do you actually make it part of your knowledge-base. We're all born with the same set of tools. Those tools you develop and 'grow' are the ones that you use for life -- the effective ones.

If you find a site you like, make an effort to state why you like it. If it doesn't work, state why -- regardless of whether or not you tell the rest of us about your feelings. Just do it!
