    This is just kind of a random thread, I guess, but it kinda fits in the "general design" section.

    Anybody here ever suffer from a strong desire to code something, but a distinct lack of inspiration for design as well as content? I'm kinda going through that right now...

    I've been working on a site for somebody else (my first site ever), and I got a design for that with some help from people here on these forums. Now I'm kinda working on a site for myself, but I'm having problems with a lack of inspiration design-wise, as well as what in the heck to put on it! It bites!

    Just a random rant...

    Here's the ugly (no, hideous!) thing I have right now...I was too tired to design anything much better.

    i understand totaly, as I am a graphics designer/webdesigner.. I design things for people all the time but when it comes to my own sites I have trouble getting the right layout. Maybe because your like me, 1 ur picky, and on the other hand it is not paying you anything so the modivation is just not there.

    LOL, filburt1....

    410...yep, that's about it, I think. I am picky when it comes to anything I do. I'm kind of a perfectionist in some ways (however, I'm happy to fudge in others) when it comes to something I create. I want whatever it is to be PERFECT or THE BEST (according to my abilities, that is). And I think the lack of monetary compensation has a lot to do with it, too. I also can't think of anything about myself that's worth putting up on the web, really. I mean, I like lots of different stuff, but nothing that doesn't already have like a billion other web pages associated with it.

    I guess if I had something new and different that I think would be cool for other people to see, it would be different...

    Nice

    I like it. Don't change a thing. This is exactly how a designer's page should look like. and yes we've all been there and we will all get there again. It's "the walk of like"

    Really? I think it's kinda boring. I feel like I should put some kind of a box on the right or on the left inside the main table to break up the site and make it look more interesting. Thanks for the input and the vote of confidence, though!

    Yeah, it sucks in a huge way...BUT, I guess as long as I have good stuff for the important sites (i.e.: those that may make me money), that's the important thing. I wish you well, too!

    Sometimes the best inspirations come to me by accident when I'm in the middle of a "creative block" and am just fiddling around with a concept.

    When all else fails, I watch cartoons. They're always good for offering up some key ingredient for me to build on, whether it's a shape, background effect, pattern/texture, or something of the sort to start fiddling with. I've actually won awards on some of the idiotic stuff that I've created sites from.

    Just relax, don't give up, and learn to "play" with your concept a little. It'll take on a life of its own, but you need to give it room to grow.

    Every creative block is a sign that your abilities are about to surge ahead to a new level, it's a positive thing, so look forward to them.....just hope they don't come too often, or you'll end up a homeless munk. =)
