    current site: http://demogame.civfanatics.net/civ3/html/index.html

    Civ (Civilization 3), is a turn-based computer game. At the fansite for the game they have this thing called a Democracy Game (DG) which a group plays one game and it decides what to do thru polls and ministrys and whatnot (this is done thru the forums, the site is for info etc.) . The civilization they are playing is Japan, thus I made the main colour red (from japan's flag) and the link colour a harmony to red.

    Is there any other background information as to why this design was chosen? It is a radical deviation from the orgional design. Was it chosen by the client or just a design you are planning in presenting? I do not know your client(s) but from past experiances designing gaming sites, a design like this would be shot down in an instant. Almost always the site needs to obviously tie into the game. And this one does not.

    You say you used red as a main color but I see it as an accent. Plus I personally do not associate red with japan unless I am set up by another hint to think of it that way. So that meaning will likly be lost. You can do that by incoprerating images and/or shapes(such as the rising sun) to hint at your vision and make it more obvious. But even that might not be enough, you are probably going to have to give it a 'Civilization game flavor' so visiters will be able to recognize it.

    Right now your design is very clean and streightforward but it looks too steril and uninspired for the subject it is trying to portey. I am a huge fan of minimalist design, and because of that I personaly like your design. But taking into account your subject matter I dont think it fits very well.

    As a side note Japan is known for minimilst design, and that might also be where this is headed. Make it more obvious in your design that this is a site about DG5 witch is a team in the Civilazation game environment, and not some other generic design, and I think this will turn out very well.

    If it wasn't a gaming site (sortof) how would you like the design.
