    Hi,

    I haven't done much web design/development. I'm not completely new, but I'm definitely not an expert. My site is suppose to be an entertaining site for kids/families to watch & submit videos. Currently, there is no submission area, so all I really have area 3 videos posted. Anyway, though this is in the earlier stages, I was hoping to get some pointers/tips about how to make the site attractive & functional.

    Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

    my site is http://www.kidsvideostation.com

    Um.... well... It is very bright (just because kids like bright colors doesn't mean that you should make them want to gouge their eyes out), and the scrolling bit on the left hand side gets annoying fast. The navigation is not clear, and the buttons have jagged edges on :hover. Also, the ads cause a side scroll (1024X768). The overall design looks old/dated.

    Good luck!

    I agree, and, personally I think that the site is altogether too busy. There are too many things going on at once.
    The videos go one after another. That is quite unfriendly, and the table at the bottom is very unprofessional.
    Yes, and the colors are distracting. This site, in my opinion, needs some work.

    Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, I wasn't sure it looked that great, but it was my first attempt.

    Anyway, since then I've come up with 2 layout alternatives to the site, and posted them here. Before I go through the process of making them into webpages, I thought I'd post them here to get some feedback and see if they're worth designing.

    Thanks.

    Too be honest I believe the logo is too large and bulky and is determining your site layout, try a redesign maybe in vector format and it should look better and allow you to adjust its size without any trouble.

    agree totally.. vector format is much better to use, its not implemented as a jpeg which means it can be resized to any size with a touch of a button
