The last sites posted here for review were in January of 2007.

Altex-Mar Electronics, Inc. was established in Indiana in 1981 as a regional distributor of electronic components.
One goal of this logo and Web site design was to merge 3 companies into a unified identity. The project involved 3 logo redesigns (Altex-Mar, MidCon, and GTS), as well as 3 Web site redesigns. The primary goal was to give each company an updated look and at the same time visually strengthen the relationship of the three companies to each other. The portal page was created at the request of the client. I was reluctant to create teh portal page because of the additional click. However, I hope it works well with the usability of the site and helps to unify the identity of the 3 companies. I look forward to your review. More designs to come from laughlindesign.com :).

Geothermal energy: advanced technology overview
Our company, BTT Bassfeld Technology Transfer, has set-up a website to inform about sustainable and environmental-friendly electricity production, mainly by breakthrough advancements in geothermal electricity and heat generation. The site is very recent, but I'd like to ensure people find the site helpful and return often. I'd like to build it into a geothermal portal including a compendium of links, katest news and eventually a discussion forum. The immediate goal is to motivate viewers to download a 10 page document which gives an overview of the technologies involved and eventually to contact us for further information. Target audience are governments, alternative energy organisations, electricity companies, investors in alternative energy, contractors, architects and real estate developers; basically anyone wanting to obtain green energy at competitive return on investment. Does the site have a "professional" look? Does the site communicate the goal visibly and clearly? How long do you think anyone interested in alternative energy would remain on the site? Would they want to return? What can I do to improve the efficiency of the site? I have more or less no html knowledge and have built the site using Rapidweaver software and a blueballdesign template.

Tools
This site is a source of information on what this "small" tool company does, and what kind of service it provides. Its main purpose is not to promote or sell anything, (it would be a plus if it promotes the company) it is there as a information tool for costumers who arent sure what kind of service the company provides. The reason I want this website to be rated is because it is my first website that i have designed, and i am sure i could of done things a lot better. So i would appreciate some suggestions of inprovement. I mainly would like the people to critique this site on its design and its functionality. I am sorry but this site is suppose to be for people who live within this area, so it doesnt offer an english version.

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!
