I've been working on a photography project recently. I asked for a critique in the review section, but since then it has been updated.

Let me know what you think.

Well I have been over the past two week building a social website.


The project was called Bungie,

Shaun Childerley also helped me with learning better coding techniques behind this website, on other projects I did a admin backend but this is just a frontend, thats all.


Here is an image of it, also has a create account function.

I will be busy over the next year so this is just a project I will work on again in future (probably)

Here is a link to the livesite: Project Bungie

A friend asked me to turn one of my character illustrations into an iPhone wallpaper, so I'm gonna create a pack of all of them and offer them as freebies on my website.

Here is the first:

cheers lads. haha i dont really know how to answer where i get my designs from. i suppose im kinda lucky that im working on projects thats are bright, colourful and entertaining to look at. if i was designing insurance company websites you probably wouldnt speak so highly of my work :)

i suppose i could say years of hard work has gotten me to the standard im at haha but that would be bull****. i love what i do so its never hard. i have probably been working as a fulltime websigner for about 3 years, before that i worked as a office administrator who sometimes designed leaflets and and websites in my company where i learnt photoshop n illustrator. My company now is fairly cool. we do online gaming sites, like bingo, quiz landing pages, sports betting etc. im very lucky with the amount of freedom i have, our company doesnt have clients, its all inhouse stuff so i can dictate what direction everything goes. i kind of have creative freedom to design whatever i like, we test it on the public, if it gets alot of hits - then happy days, if it doesnt we pull it down and start again with another design. Im extremely lucky as i dont actaully have any design qualifications, i did a diploma in business for two years, then a 6 months part time course in web design

One thing i would recommend would be to keep an eye out on all the usual css inspirational sites, new trends etc. also, i'd recommend getting your hands on as much resources as possible...ie psd's of web elements. they really help you piece a site together. have a look at www.fordesigner.com, it has a ****load of handy psd's and vectors that can really enhance a site. when desinging a page, never stop till u are happy with every tiny peice of the page. attention to detail in the most important thing in design if you ask me.

ok. i should have really waited to get the brief before i designed the page in the last post. my boss wanted a few extra's involved such as log in and a different navigation. so went with this. what do you think? the copy area is still just filler as i am still to receive the copy for the site so that may change. which do ya prefer?

This is the first piece of work I've uploaded here so please be gentle :)

It's only a dummy page that I put together this afternoon for a fictional company.

Still a few finishing touches to add.

yeah, its gettin there. i'd give the text a bigger font size and give it a higher line-height. its all very small. keep building building building and ya'll get there. nice structure. maybe the panel in the top right with the ticks could do with some work. its a bit sparse

Been working on this the last few days. Need a few pointers to make it stand out more, more attention to detail stuff.

(Ignore the yellow boxes, these are going to become little icons to represent each word to there right)

not bad. i reckon ur shading on each panel could do with a bit of work. drop me a pm and i'll send ya over a peach of a psd i have for shadows. also, i reckon the number and logo at the top doesnt really work. it all seems too condensed.
