    Dudes- You guys are kicking some ass with these designs
    In no particular order, all of your designs could win. Individual feedback soon

    jnjnnino, BlastDamage, alygames, shinan, bizzard, commb, ritesh2048

    The contest will end around 4 hours from now, with the exception of some revisions if you need a little extra time.

    I will give you all feedback, but really the only ones that could benefit from revisions are blast damage, alygames, commb, ritesh2048 and jnjnnino.

    Shinan and Bizzard your designs are close enough to judge without revisions, unless you want to submit a last different interpretation. (i am not asking for you to, as you have already put a lot of time in)

    Feedback soon, but I am stuck with 2 small kids right now.

    Thanks
    Scott

    Individual Feedback

    Shinan-
    • Your revised copy is good, probably would like the skyline and name larger, but it is possible to judge without.
    • Your last entry that you think I wouldn't like is good. I do like it, a lot. The feedback would only be to pick a better skyline(but i will end up doing that for any winning design anyway) and to make the name bigger.
    • I like using the ornate queens crown as the icon for the boxes

    Alygames
    • I would make the navigation more like the second revision, but make it lower below the buildings, and make it stretch wider. And a touch more style, but not much, not sure what to do.
    • I like the crowns to be black in your design
    • I like the body text to be black, maybe the title white or blue, not sure, but definitely the body text black
    • I think your text boxes should be rounded, and not square.
    • The text boxes should be primarily white, 3 out of 4 white, maybe the other blue
    • The translucence of the top revision navigation is good for the navigation.
    • The translucence of the body text boxes should be in between the current translucence and the top revision navigation.

    More Feedback

    Blast Damage

    • I like the cubism of the skyline, nice idea.
    • The navigation should be more translucent
    • The navigation should be slightly more removed from the body.
    • The chess board with queens crown is a good idea as well. But it needs to be smaller squares and is too strong. I like the colors of the background so I don't know if they need to be muted or if shrinking the squares will make it fade more.
    • The name should be bigger, and preferably on the left side, but that may be better solved by picking a different skyline.
    • I would probably like to see the logo again in the bottom somewhere.
    • I would like to see the body broken into 3-4 parts, like bizzards/shinan
    • Nice design overall, thanks

    Commb
    • I really like your 2nd and 3rd attempts. The idea, style and funcionality are right on. But the final execution of the design needs refinement.
    • The navigation on the 3rd one is moving in the right direction, but it is still too heavy and clunky.
    • The name/logo should be larger and maybe outside of the navigation box an by itself in the skyline.
    • I like the layout better for the 3rd one, but the 2nd one is more crisp. The 3rd one is a too drab and needs to be uplifted with a more cheery color scheme.
    • I would get rid of the tilt on the Queens' crown
    • Your design has real potential.

    blast damage, alygames, commb, ritesh2048 and jnjnnino

    If you guys need more time than 3-4 hours to revise your last design, let me know as I know everyone is on different time zones and I don't want you to ruin your sleep or schedule and it will take me quite a bit of time to make a decision anyway.

    I just don't want to have the contest to drag on with revision after revision and waste everyone's time.

    thanks

    Bizzard-

    Thanks for the clean entries, well done.

    jnjnnino
    • Love the trees idea.
    • I think I would get rid of the top border, or at the very least make it more transparent or get rid of the stripes to minimize the clash of textures.
    • I am torn as to whether I like the effect of the trees popping out of the border. Part of me likes it, but I think it is better to remove??
    • I like the queen's crown watermark idea, but i think i would remove it. But it may look better with the top border taken off, right now there is too much going on.
    • I like the navigation, but the color doesn't quite go, and it should probably be translucent.
    • I would probably lower the navigation to either the bottom of the skyline or have it straddle the skyline and body.
    • I would get rid of the paper clip on the search box
    • I would change the color of the search box to something that matches better.
    • I like the footer overall. I like the idea of the contact info on the home page
    • I would shrink the crown, and rotate it to the proper orientation.
    • Think about reorganizing the logo, crown, email, and phone number. But obviously this is not a big deal at this point.
    • You may want to think about extending the trees and/or the skyline the full width of the design/page.
    • You could fade out the trees and/or skyline as it approached the widths edge if you think that would look good.
    • The background fade on the middle to bottom is good.

    • Obviously it will need to be a Charlotte Skyline, it's ok for now
    • Don't use that crown, use either the plain one, or the ornate silver one, others are using.
    • Either way the crown probably doesn't belong in the skyline, at least not the way i am seeing it now.
    • The gold for the navigation and the logo doesn't belong or match.
    • The name/logo needs to be bigger
    • I would remove the spear for the navigation.
    • I am not sold on the location of the navigation, it may just be the color, but it probably needs to be moved or straddle the body, or made horizontal.
    • I like the video player style

    Blast Damage
    • I like the sky cubism navigation. Nice touch.
    • Improve on it and review the previous feed back, left right before your revision.

    • Your revision 3 is the best so far, but it is really only because the skyline isn't dusky and muted.
    • I understand you are muting the skyline so it operates as a backdrop. But you should fade it on the bottom and at least make the top crisp, blue, sharp and upbeat.
    • The navigation is better.

    I like the skylines clearness of your previous version.

    I would still make the square still a bit smaller.

    Ok the competition is over.

    Only revisions from those that received feedback may submit their revisions.

    All entries must be received over the next 24 hours from this post.

    I will then make a decision over the next 8 hours, so within 32 hours of this post.

    Thanks for everyone's effort, I am very pleased with the designs.

    Scott

    Here's the last changes I made. I removed a transparent shape which make the photograph not so clear. And I reduced the chess board style with smaller shapes.

    In the menu, I let available some other frames of the different sections, so you can see how it would works.

    [​IMG]

    I hope you like this revision and I hope to win the contest, so I can start working on the other pages of your site.

    Thanks and regards.
