    The logo will proably be changed and there is little content yet, so realy I need your thoughts on the navigation ect.

    Thanks.

    Good start!

    I like the small logo and the background. I also like the idea behind the navigation.

    Here's what i thought could use some modification:
    1. on the index page the large Cotton Clouds text is a little jagged. make it smooth like the small one.

    2. on the index page, i tried to click the "Welcome" "Button". try to make that look less like a link, or just lose it altogether.

    3. is it possible to make the background of the main page "show through" the inline frame? NO? see number 4

    4. why not lose the inline frame and just have "backround: fixed" for the 3 bubble image. that way it will always appear under the text and your text wont be trapped in the bubble. create some negative "clean" space on the page that way.

    5. i like the 4 box navigation at the bottom. i might move it to the top but that's personal preference. what i would do is make the text a bit smaller and a little more elegant. its very flat and a bit too arial. also if you made the text smaller it would give the words "information" and "sompany" some breathing room. they are both pushed to the edge of the square.

    6. i like the rollover effect. very clean looking. how about making the rollover image a bit more vivid and brighter, more vivid and brighter that Tide could ever do?

    That's it. good luck, great start!

    i would change the content of the first page to a short description of what the company does, and how to do it on the site. there's no point having a logo twice. and i dont like those ugly grey things you've used to represent subsections.

    saying that, it's a very nice piece of design. although i prefer XHTML+CSS, your code is well formed and laid out. 8/10

    Thanks for the replies,

    ericbusch -

    1. Yeah I know what you mean, but scince I think I will have to change the logo I didn't spend to much time on it. It will proably be replaced with a Flash intro on the finished site.

    2. Good point, I was kind of going on the idea that the page your on will have a border round the top navigation and the other options won't, but I suppose users won't know this. I think I'll remove it.

    3 & 4. Well the background dose show through a bit, I didn't want to over do it. I don't want to get rid of the scrolling frame, but think I'll make it a bit more translucent.

    5. Not sure, I'll give it a go.

    6. Yeah, I deffinetly agree on this point, it was something I was thnk of doing, it looks a bit weak as it is.

    I was trying to keep some continuity between the nav ant the bottom and the sub options at the top. I might try a less ugly blue or something.

    Thanks again for usefull reponces.

    Your site needs to show how nice the facilities are for cotton clouds to show how clean they keep the place. I would go for your same design choice because it emits the right atmosphere.

    It would be good to incorporate the design so it feels like you are at the physical location of cotton clouds. I hope you understand my idea and think it is worthy to at least try.

    Wow! I haven't been or posted on this site in a good while.
    Cheers, zionlocke :chinese:
