Estate agents in Berkshire (UK), Reading, Pangbourne, Tilehurst
I have designed this website for some estate agents based in the South of England. I tried to make it look pretty as well as relatively quick loading (although it will be quite slow on a 56kb modem, it goes quite well on a cable one). I have used cascading style sheet extensively for most of the layout elements which load as server side include to allow caching (and thus faster loading). The menus, on the left hand side and main menu bar are entirely done with CSS (there is no image except for the arrow). They work efficiently on all the CSS compliant browser included Mac/PC browsers such as Mozilla, IE 5.5 (IE 6 for PC, I haven't had a chance to test on IE5), Netscape, and Opera. I have added pages of relevant contante such as discover (the area) and a 'down the memory lane' page. I have no control over the way the database interacts, although I constructed all the static states and it works pretty much like I wanted it to. Please try it, and let me know what you think.

Christopher Yiangou Consulting
This is intended as an on-line resume for my profession as industrial engineer and software designer / developer. It is a low-traffic site, and does seem to pick up some hits from search engines and directories. Its main purpose, however, is as a convenient way to refer potential clients to my resume, by sending them the URL via email. I would like advice and comments about general look-and-feel, appropriateness of graphic elements and content.

Great Locations Real Estate
This site was created to promote our real estate company on Cape Cod. We are a relatively small firm and hoped to "even the playing field" by having a web site which would showcase our experience and expertise in a narrow focus market, ie, vacation homes on Cape Cod. In a market of only 8,000 people there are seven other real estate companies and a total of 200 actives real estate sales agents. Compition is very very stiff. We do not belong to a national franchise and therefore have to rely on our outstanding level of service to put us ahead of the other companies. I am not sure our site conveys that message. There are three sections to the site: 1. Discovering Ocean Edge Resort - A general overview of a large resort condomimium propety we represent for sales and rentals. 2. Cape Properties - A search area listing the current real estate listings for sale. 2. Vacation Rentals - A search area for the vacation rentals we offer. We find the site viually appealing but lacking sizzle. There does not seem to be a cohesive theme, perhaps there is too much information and no real call to action. Thank you in advance and I look forward to your comments and suggestions.

Pet Sitter Web Site - different from the average website
This is a pet sitter web site. It is online to help promote the small business. It is not ment to have a lot of traffic everyday. The client wanted a very simple site, no forms nor e-mail address to contact pet sitter at. Clients moto is keep it simple. I have attempted to make the site have a warm feeling to it, that they can trust the pet sitter, and also make it kind of cute. I have been at web design for one year, thus have been learning everything from scratch. So, be honest yet kind with your review. I think the site is pretty different from what is out there, so let me know what you think of that. I basicly used Illustrated and hand coded HTML. Thanx, Jules Rene

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!
