- SkateAZ - skateboarding in Arizona
- This website is basically a site where users can post info, photos, and videos related to skateboarding, specifically involving Arizona based talents. My goal in creating the site was to have a simple and easy to use website that integrates user input with a viewer-friendly output. Let me know what you think mainly of the design and usability of the site. Anything else that you would like to point out is welcome too. All critiques are greatly appreciated.

- gozzle.com is survey website designed to collect data from people about lifestyles & present statistical information based on the survey data collected freely & instantly. it's an asp.net site with sql server backend. this is my first website & i am new to web aspects. i would like to hear what people think requires work or changes to make the website more readable & understandable. i have been told that the filtering aspects of data is confusing. i have to admit web design is probably not going to be my strength, i'm finding it very tedious going!!

- North San Diego Coastal Homes and Condos
- Daily updated source of Homes for sale along the coast of North San Diego. I realize that graphics take time to load but potiential clients need many photos of porperties so they can decide if interest it there. I am not as concerned with the load speed as the quality of content and help available to both buyers and sellers. Please tell me how I can improve this aspect and any other that you may feel are important to having a successful site. Thanks much.

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!
