Very impressive design for a Joomla! site

Post by jazzstudio » Fri Jun 06, 2008 8:19 pm

I did not design the template for this site, a good friend - who is also my hosting company - designed it. I was waaayyy impressed with the site. See for yourself, I think it's really very well done. I never thought one could get this level of "deisgn-looking" site from a joomla template. I truly have to compliment him.

Oh, and those of you who are music lovers, go to the LISTEN menu when you get to the site, I have a free track giveaway there.

It is nicely designed although it's a bit too fussy for my taste - but that's my personal opinion.

Also took a long time to load and didn't fit in my browser.

But clever all the same.

Nice.

The only thing I would change is the styling of the links. The contrast between some of the link colours and the background they are on makes them fairly hard to see.

Also, I can see you have made the main navigation bar change from caps to lower case on mouse over.
Its a clever effect however it makes the whole bar jitter when rolled over with the mouse.
I think most people would see that as a mistake or something broken before they appreciate that you have done it on purpose.
Also on the same navigation bar the rollover color should 'highlight' the link - yours seems to have the opposite effect but thats just my personal pref.

Nice site. Very different.
This is my signature isnt it

That's beautiful, and very clever. As somebody else already said, the only thing i'd suggest a change is the style onmouseover of the text links.

Hi all, thanks for the compliments and advice on the site. Although, the compliments are due my good buddy. I will pass it along to him. Will also mention the advice on the rollovers etc.

Cheers all

the website is very well done and it loads pretty fast too. I would change the color of the links (lounge around) at the top though. The color doesn't stand out enough.
