Hey guys and girls!
So I helped my sister create a webpage: http://www.aug15th.com
I think it looks pretty good, except for the main page image. Right now she did something quick, but she wants one that looks more professional.
She wants something like this:
the flowers at the top of the page http://tupperwareprofits.wordpress.com/2007/05/
http://photoshopcontest.com/temp/1.jpg
http://photoshopcontest.com/temp/2.jpg
http://photoshopcontest.com/temp/3.jpg
http://photoshopcontest.com/temp/4.jpg
http://photoshopcontest.com/temp/5.jpg
http://photoshopcontest.com/temp/6.jpg
http://photoshopcontest.com/temp/7.jpg
http://photoshopcontest.com/temp/9.jpg
http://photoshopcontest.com/temp/10.jpg

The image needs to be 800x600 @ 300 dpi, as she wants to design a business card from that same design. It should also contain the text (name, quote, menu).
First place wins a 2 year membership, 2nd - 1 year, and 3rd - 3 months.
Let's leave the contest open for a week.

hehe, just designed my own wedding-invitations this style. I wouldn't use those flowers for a "corporate design", unless you are planning to have a relaunch in a few years. This design is super-trendy right now, even on TV you can see it in 3D and animated. Such hypes aren't such durable, and I am afraid that we will have seen enough of it after a while, and it will become a huge DONT in designwork, like gradients in the early 90ies. But it looks nice anyway ... now!

Looking at her art work..I'd have to say..what she has right now is perfect already--only change needed is to do it the same, and just get rid of the 'squiggliness'.
Besides, since it is an art showcase it would only be appropriate to keep it as her work anyway...just MHO.

She's an artist so I'd suggest she design the frontpage image herself.

I'm actually doing a lot of caligraphy and ink work in the same style at the moment. If you like the style I can make something for the header - sometimes it jsut looks better if you do it by hand Smile

i'll upload some pics in a sec

That's what I told her. She isn't the best photoshop designer just like me. Smile

First image


second without the figures


second image with. bonus points to any who recognise the figures Very Happy


Basically just a combination of ink and watercolour, but considering I've never used either before, I would really appeciate some feedback guys. Plus proc do you want me to make one for the header?

Prodominantly red... With veritical gradiation...

This style is very oriental and is pleasing to the eye..

Plenty of space for your GUI inc. Nav and various other abbrev,

Red draws the most attention in the picture but using it a a backkground makes anything in the picture stand out and white being the font choice is a good thing...
The readin edge of the picture draws the eye towards the titles and name, the contrast between both the title "Artist" and the name anchors them as two different things (not the best thing to do however the fact they are linked together negates this.)

rather unnescasssary picture in the corner just to ruin what could be a very sheik and functional design finest nice touch...


]
Ipoetschke next I suppose..

Going with grey background scheme seen in finestcalls... this one is sort of a polar opposite...

This uses a combination of neutral greens and cyans with greyscal to accomplish look.

Vectored background which would be perfect for an swf but a jpeg file online... may be bad for the slower broswers... only a minor thing.

The title is a good readble font and the name is anchored to it... conventional and recognisable style associated with artists before so thats bonus points for convention but no extra marks for origionality.

Navgation at the bottom of the page...

This could be potentially disasterousas potential visitotrs who have low screen res may not see it. or worse banner ads like google ads may push it so low it may be ignored...

Navigation is just ledigble but just is not enough nav should be plain and clear... and the sae goes for the text comment at the top which has no capital letter at the start...

Lastly for now there is

eragon


This image shows a yellow opal page... (I see a love of blending options) however that does not detract from the final look of the page, infact appropriate for the style used.

A pen drawn font for everything anchors all text together and keeps the site on a theme that bonus points there.
A subtle gradiation and solid for a nice background thats easy on the eyes and the picture at the left and base which guides the eyes dowon and across to both peices of text. that and extra bonus point for directional use.

a nice navigation at the top is easy to read and easy to find for any fully abled veiwer.

Few downsides for this one Prefered choice...although that text at the bottom is barly ledgable

Although finestcalls has the most potential
