Project Cerulean Design V2 by edmunn Project Cerulean Design V2 by edmunn
Title: Project Cerulean
Client: Myself
Applications: Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator CS4
Time taken: Around 30+ Hours
Layers: Between 200 & 300

Description: Been rather busy lately, but dodging inbetween my A-Levels and work, I've been piecing this together!
I'm happy with the style, but not so happy with the layout yet.

What do you think?

Any comments and :+fav:'s would be awesome! :typerhappy:

Very nice, but i think it lacks a bit of symmetry. If you do that with aligning the logo with the elements below i think that it would look even better!

looks good, but I'm not so sure about the placement of the about section ;)

Yeah, I see what you mean.
How would you go about it?

hmm see your problem is this, you have a confused layout imo .. it's trying to be more than it is :P

let me explain, on the one hand you have the nice top navigation offering links etc ... as you would for a multi page site

BUT you have got the about section AND the gallery on the first page like a one pages layout .. :P

understand :D

so either make the front have just a gallery sample, and the small introduction area, and then have about, contact etc on separate pages.

OR make it one page style, but placing about me section under your header ( which is rather nice btw ), then place your gallery content ( also be sure to add an easy to see GO TO TOP link, this makes the site far more user friendly ), then lastly add a small simple contact form :)

thats what i would do were i you. :P

Looks really nice!

I think it's just a bit longer than it needs to be, cutting the big "PC" would help.

Amazing design! :D
But the logo's edges don't look smooth, maybe it could be improved? or maybe it's me
However, generally it's amazing!

Loving it,

The header colors and effects are great, but I don't really like the layout of the About Area and Portfolio. It feel empty in the left side ;).

Great Job anyway!

at first I didn't even see the nav bar. Maybe draw a little more attention to it. Also for your portfolio, I think it'd be cool if you had 1 image for print, 1 for web, 1 for artwork, etc. Maybe guide the viewer through your projects.

The colors are awesome and I like the use of transparency. keep up the good work :clap:

Wow, this is great!

The only thing that is irritating me, is the green in the top left of the PC logo. It just feels like it should be a light orange like in the background - but that may just be me ^^

It's awesome, I really like it :+fav:

And you could add some colour to the grey line right next to "About Eddie!".

But that's it ;)

If he leaves the PC letters out, than the design is to generic and boring. The rest of the page is very simple and wouldn't create enough of emphasis.

Just think you browse through the net and to this page, I promise you will check what this site is about, just because of the giant letters. :)

Looks lovely, great colours :+fav:

May I ask how this is 200-300 layers! You must of put a pixel on every layer or something! :giggle:

:iconedmunn:
edmunn Featured By Owner May 9, 2009
Just overlay effects and all that. ^^
About 100 layers on the background, then you have text and the logo, faint lines etc...

This is really really amazing. I love the design and think it is very nicely done. Love the colour of the background. Rather fancy.

I'd like to see the logo up the top in pure black or how it may look, say, on a header or a white background.

But bar that, a perfect design with class and style.

The Header looks very nice. The Colors are amazing, and the navi bar is great.

I like this one. :thumbsup: :)

I can't give you real critique, because I'm a noob in this. ^^"
