View Full Version : redesigned my website
12-14-2002, 06:12 PM
I just finished redesigning my web site using Flash MX. I took a Flash class at college this last semester and I redesigned my site for my final project. I still want to add a couple things, but it's about 95% done.
Here's the link: www.db-designs.net (http://www.db-designs.net)

you need a period instead of a comma.;) Great site, very nice.

Great site, very easy to navigate and extremely clear.
My only little thing is: in your galleries you may want each image to load when selected, as at the moment they all load at once, which takes a long time.
Simply use the script "load movie" to open each one when needed.
Great site and great work.

There is a comma after the www in the link. I like the design, but it loaded very slow on dialup.. I have been having some connection problems lately so I'm not sure it's the design.

I know, it's been a long time since I have posted; things have been crazy. Hopefully after next week, things will calm down, at least as far as work goes. I still haven't even thought about Christmas yet:(
Thanks, everyone for pointing out the bad link; it's fixed now.
Sorry about the slow loading, I haven't had a chance to deal with that yet. I was trying to get the site posted so I could email my Flash class instructor that it is up because I rebuilt my site for my final project. I'll work on making the site more friendly for dial-up soon.
Thanks for all your comments and input!

Your website looks good but it needs to have a reason for me to go there. I dont really find anything intresting. Try making little animations and adding them to get attention. Also I love the flash work, it looks great. To see what i mean go to my site
Keep up the good work

Nice to see you are getting the swing of Flash,
There are 2 things I noticed,
1. When you click on the contact page, the email editor opens as it should, but also an extra blank page pops up.
2. If I were you, I would tthink about redesigning your personal logo. This is a very important thing in your business as people will look at it as a represantation of what you will do for them.
Apart from those 2 things, it looking good, keep it up.

Hi Doug, I think it looks great but I wouldn't have expected anything less. I give you an A+.
I still think your mag cover should have been a finalist in the last contest.
Keep in touch.

it's not loading for me :(

Sorry Realist; I forgot to make the images load individually when the buttons are clicked so the whole site has to load before it comes up, which takes a while if you are on dial-up (the site is about 2.5 megs).
Thanks, FrostedWeb, for your comments. I didn't want the site to be too "flashy" so I avoided a lot of animation. The purpose of the site is mainly for referring potential clients to so they can see samples of my work. I didn't designed it to generate buiseness or clients for me yet; I am just getting started on my company and I'm not ready for that. I will probably spice it up in the future. I'll check your site out in a little bit.
Thanks Colin for your suggestions and for pointing the e-mail bug out. I have thought about redesigning my logo, but I don't have any ideas yet. Maybe I should revisit that idea.
Thanks Pete, you are too kind:)
