Commercial and Residential Interior Design Web Site
This is a test site (final stages) with additional content in development. The site is mostly template-driven with areas for the client to add content. I am mostly concerned about color and overall visual impression. The pictures are of the client's historic home, which serves as an office. The site is designed around the home itself, with additional pictures/graphics taken from the property. I have additional pictures of the home to integrate into the site.

Cris Ascunce - Graphic Design
Cat Graphix is a graphic design portfolio, designed to attract clients. On the site are a few pages where a prospective client can see my design style and call or write for more information.

Knudson Gloss Architects
Knudson Gloss Architects website is realatively unique in that very few architecture firms have chosen to use Flash as the primary design tool. We feel that we have created an engaging site that allows users an easy way of accessing our vast architectural portfolio which enhances our marketing.

Nikki Boxer, actress & vocalist
The purposes of my site is to provide basic information about my performance history and experience- essentially a resume online. I am interested in a review of the general design as a whole and its effectiveness. Wed Mar 30 15:21:04 2005,

Personal injury claims company in the UK
We started this site online as a more 'user - friendly' way of claiming compensation online. We have a physical office that people can visit and only use trustworthy solicitors who can help without needing thier clients to take out loans and credit to see their claim through. Most sites we found looked very basic so we wanted to do something a little more stylish. What do you think of the flash intro, good or a waste of viewing time? Online form and referral are pretty new... Thanks Julian Hall

Small business dedicated to improving clients networking ability and connectivity
I believe that the company website is ready for a make over, but have been told by some that it looks professional and doesn't need to change. I have recently been charge with the updating of the site content, but would like to start over. I'm hoping for someone to give me their opinion of the site and whether they think that it is time for change...mainly the layout and photos. I feel it is rather dark, and boring, not professional and inviting.

Website for IT/Telecoms Consulting Services company.
I actually built this site for a client and am submitting it on his behalf(and out of curiousity to learn what I did well and also what i can do better). To provide an online profile of the company to existing and prospective clients - in addition to offering them alternative additional/cost-effective means of doing business with us. We would like feedback on the site design/layout; usability/navigability and any other aspect that could improve the website performance. What does it look like across browser platforms etc Thanks in advance PS: How do we know if/when you decide to review the site?

Web site for hypnosis practice
It's a new site designed to appeal to a general audience. It's job is to bring in clients via the contact form. Also to educate prospective clients and remove their fears/misconceptions about hypnosis. So far it's doing it's job (bringing in clients) and I'm hearing good things about the content. In the design phase, I was hoping for a bit of the warm calm quiet feel of a yoga or spa site with a bit of zip to it. I'm not stisfied with the way it's turned out. It's not slick/professional looking enough for me. So there's no specific aspect of it that I'd draw your attention to - it's an overall slickness that's lacking. Even just a homepage critique would be great. It's been a long process to get it where it is, and I'm a little disappointed that I'm still not satisfied with the result.

Real Estate in Florida
I developed this site for the real estate broker. And would like to know the opinion of what's good or bad with it. Most of the stuff was done in Photoshop, and I used some java scripts and flash to make it stand out. Please take a look at it, and see what you think

DC Living Real Estate Portal
This Washington DC Real Estate website was designed to attract homebuyers desiring the urbane lifestyle of downtown Washington DC. It is also designed to provide frequently asked for information to potential homebuyers. Finally, its visual design was intended to support its role as the most creative and foward thinking Real Estate Brokerage in the Dc area.

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!
