    Hi guys, i hope you can help me.

    I work at a web/graphic design agency called "Spook Creative" in New Zealand, and was given the responsibility for the design and development of our site. so i would really like your guys input.

    here is the site again:
    www.spook.co.nz

    check it out and tell me what you think.

    You can rate on the points above and even comment if you like.
    Here are some key points i am interested in.

    a) Is the purpose of the site obvious?
    b) Is the site Engaging?
    c) Loading time?
    d) Easy to navigate?
    e) can find information you want?
    f) Readability?
    g) Animation - Used appropriately? Done well?
    h) Look & Feel - Does the site project an appropriate image?


    Thanks again people. any comments greatly appreciated.

    A) The first page, the one where you choose the version you would like, is not that obvious. I only knew in someway what the website was for by the title bar. Subnote: the text that describes the html and flash version, why have you made it a graphic?

    B) Past the selection splash screen, the main page is not that eye catching. Again you are using images where text could achieve the same. Also the actual text on the page is not very clear against the white background.

    I then clicked on Showcase and I liked the view of the different websites in your showcase.

    C) Loading time was no problem

    D) The navigation is always in the same place, which is good. Though, spicing it up a little is a good idea, maybe different colors for different sections (Showcase, Services, Clients etc).

    E) The website is well organised, but when I am on a specific page, such as clients, the navigation is gone, meaning I have to go back a page to access the links to other pages.

    F) Other than what I have said about the images and the main text, none.

    G) The animation was fine, animations were only used when they were needed.

    H) The site looks like a typical web design/media company if you ask me.

    Good job

    I viewed the HTML mainly, then when I got to point G) I had a quick sketch over the flash version.

    i actually quite like this site, although you should try to make more of a contrast between the colours, the white-ish pink on the pink made me strain my eyes, i LOVED the way if you press the button the little "spook" frowns at you! brilliant! i think some mouseovers for the links would be good too...

    Thanks Solidgold, I actually think the contrast is a bit off too.

    If you liked the spook character at the loading screen, did you see him round the edges of the main background (dark pinky colour). Just roll your mouse just around the outsite of the white main 'window' (were all the content is) and you should find him.

    I agree with solid gold, the pink does seem to melt into the white and is hard to see.

    Hello again.

    The site has been redesigned a while ago now, and I just thought I would post back to tell everyone.

    Checkout the new design and layout and tell me what you think

    Cheers

    Adam,

    Very nice work. There are some little annoyances, like the rollovers that don't roll off, and the fact that the horizontal rules stay there when you roll over an item. Also, the navigation isn't very obvious, but overall, I really love the site. Thumbs up!

    I agree with transio that the naviagtion is kind of lost. Its hard to asume that user will rollover the content. But nice design mate.
