    Question Lost-Angelz Graphic Designs

    I have just completed a site where me and a couple friends are offering our design services. Please look around. How's the color scheme? Spelling error's? Is the flash loading in a timely manner. I would very much appreciate feedback as to overall lay out and design? visually appealing? I have 2 computers so I know that sometimes 1 computer may show a slightly different version (text format) than the other... I would especially appreciate someone to view with netscape.. please let me know about any errors I may be overlooking, thanx

    Hi L-A
    Your site loaded quickly, no problems with flash.
    Personally, found the light color hard to read, I noticed in one page you used a black font. perhaps a darker color will be easier. white on light blue background, sorry but I gave up.
    I liked the page http://www.lost-angelz.com/maintenancerequest.html good example.

    Thanks... Yeah I was having second thoughts about color scheme... heard the font suggestion before... think I will work on that.

    Agree about the white on blue text but you say you are going to sort it. I am not too keen on the sound effects on the buttons but that might just be me, I find them annoying. Apart from that its a nice site

    ok 1 vote against button sound... can I get votes from a few others...
    Should button sound effects STAY? Should button sound effects be REMOVED?

    I'm kind of weird anyway so I like them, but DON"T go by me, I do agree that the font needs to be darker. Overall a good job

    Looking good, but would agree with the others, loose the sound affects, (sorry). On your main logo, the background colors show a little to faint on my screen, but let others confer this.
    Its the blue L & red A on the logo.

    Good luck

    the l & a in logo are transparent... if they were solid they would take attention away from the url and full name of website.. wanted site name, url, and purpose to be focal point.

    Hi Lost angel,

    I like the design, but if this is going to be a business you have a few things that need attention...like setting your page guidelines to 800 x600 so that it stops the sideways scroll on most screens ....(I'm beginning to sound like a broken record with this sideways scroll thing lol ).....

    Also I noticed on your "about us" page different styles of font..looks better when you take the same throughout the site , same with your nav menu , same place throughout the site looks more professional...on one page its in the middle of the page and some overlapping to.

    I kinda like the sound on the menu bar ...

    Youve made a great start tho ..keep tweaking :o)

    I think It may be your computer causing the sideways scroll I have 2 computers and neither come up with side ways scroll... Is there anyone else getting side ways scroll? I knew this may happen on some cpu's but I'd rather look a little different rather than have my area confined to a smaller area of the screen as you see on almost all other sites with page centered in window... I tried to make it large but keep it small enough to avoid side ways scroll... oh and the font, I am in the middle of changing color... thats why its not matching I do appreciate the feed back... paying google $.65 cent per click... Hate to have some one click my add, get to my site and back out because of button sound effects ...Is there anyone else with sideways scroll... this is the first I have heard of it...shows correct on my computers as well as friends.

    The width does matter I would go with 800 max, ths standard will be changing in the near future to 1024 wide. The height on mine is 2000, I couldn't help noticing you have too many keywords on your site they are arranged in a impropper formatt. Good content and layout! my computer ids drunk today but the page did load good. pet121

    Pretty Slick!
    Sound effects on links? Maybe more appropriate for your site, as you need to demostrate dynamics, possibilities. If so, keep them to a lower volume, and non-abrasive sound...like an echoed shudder, or an echoed tone-up?

    Definitely keep your overall width at 800...showcase to all those who have not reset their screen from the "out-of-the-box" settings.....be sure to keep that in mind while designing sites too, for it may be true that more people are regarding 1024 as the new standard, more than 72% of world-wide computers are still set at 800 and running at turbo-dialup.....

    Again...most of your issues are minor, and you seem to be quick to modify.

    Personally, I am glad to see a professionally oriented Voda/BV offering up in a model such as yours....your planning and implementation is sure to garner success!

    thanx linda... can honestly say your suggestion played the most vital role in this design.. I know that sound effects on links is always gonna have those for and those against but your size comment made me realize that I needed to design this site for "the people"... everyone's browser not just those with large screen areas. thanx

    I liked your other background better, personally.....
    Black is good for many applications, but seems to make yours much colder, more "techno" than the obvious dynamism earlier presented....
    Dark gray or silver?? Hmmm....

    Good day, all I was just reading thru some of the forums and found the posts to e extremely thought provoking and helpful...so I thought I'd post my site. Let me know what you think? Too cluttered? Fonts? Logo design (stock)...I'm a rookie, so your general opinion means alot to me. It can be viewed at http://www.blacktrump4life.com.

    Thanks a bunch!

    I have removed the design site. I no longer design sites for others, too much hassle... this is an old thread.
