    Deuce: Design and Production

    Hi. I'm new here, and I figured a good first post would be to ask for some feedback on my current website. This is for my company, though so far all I have uploaded and finished is the intro page. There will of course be more to come, but I just wanted to see how everyone felt about this. I'll be showing it off to several of the partners and employees tomorrow.

    Splash pages are basically useless. On yours, I have to scroll down on a 1024x768 resolution to see the enter button, and there's nothing but wasted space above it. It could easily be moved up so it's in view.

    That would defeat the eye movement derived from the composition in the first place. Is scrolling such a task that I should jeopardize the aesthetics?

    Splash pages are completely, totally, utterly useless and are very frustrating to end users. They want content from the get go.

    Using some smart CSS you could easily achive that effect on any resolution

    Also There's a big space at the bottom at my resoution (1280x1024). Once I hit the splash page, it sent me to a blank page. Firebird 0.8 Win 2k

    Me too. (Firefox 0.8 WinXP Pro)

    Also, I dont need to scroll (1680x1050) if thats the effect you're going for. And I'm with everyone else, I would lose the splash page. If you really like the images or idea you have used for it, incorperate it into your main page.

    You've misspelt main on part of the image map (the duece part), all the link's are also broken. Also the splash needs to be smaller, nobody on an 800x600 res is going to bother going into your site if the splash is so unfriendly to them.

    I said in the first post that it was only the first page. You guys keep stretching function and not a single comment on anything design related. Is this an engineer's forum on web design?

    Interesting design. I don't quite get what the spade means in relation to the name... I mean, I realize that it's probably a playing card thing, but I just don't get it. Also, while intriguing, the interrogative tag line doesn't do much to continue the playing card theme. Then there's the kid with the mic - which, along with the tag line hints at the "production" aspect of your company. The mic's wire extending over to your "logo" is also an interesting idea, but poorly executed. First, the wire looks like it was painted by hand in photoshop. Try using illustrator's bezier to make a nice smooth line. Then, you have it dividing your logo in half. Personally, I'd prefer to see the wire better integrated into the logo design. Maybe create a marque for your company, and have the wire somehow "plug in" to it. All in all, the page bombards visitors with inconsistent concepts to deal with rather than focusing on something and making it a single, powerful statement. In addition, the simplicitic nature of the presentation doesn't really convey any deep meaning or goal. It's like a montage of incomplete ideas thrown together quickly. Personally, I think you should pick one theme or another and restrategize.
