    Hey there :)

    I need advice and feedback from as many DigitalPoint members as possible, as this major project is quite significant for me. No matter how insignificant your feedback may be, I will take it on board.

    Here's the info:

    Link: Click Here!
    Purpose and Audience: To educate and assist students and teachers on the origins, nature and influences of P o s t m o d e r n i s m on contemporary society

    If you have little or no idea what P o s t m o d e r n i s m is, then you are exactly the target audience for this website. The purpose of this website is to provide readers with some basic understanding on this elusive way of thinking. If you can describe what P o s t m o d e r n i s m is after reading it, then I believe the website has been successful in achieving its purpose.

    Important Note: Search, translate and RSS functions are only for display and do not work.

    Interface and Design. Excellent design and color combo. Color combo may be a putoff for some but looks pretty elegant to me.

    Easy and straightforward site. One thing though. The 'related links' and 'explore the websites' windows do not require the level of importance you gave them. Although it depends entirely upon your audience, try to move them to the footer and fill that place with something more important, like introduction which is at the bottom.

    I wish I had your level of skill. Navigation looks fine. ease of use looks straight forward.

    for some reason I am getting a very big blank box at the top of the page where the contact is.

    I would find a more engaging logo I really like eyes looking out in some way brings the people in and engages them.

    looks like it will be very interesting reading when finished. Good luck with your mega project.

    Yep, colour scheme has changed - will be uploaded soon.
    Will consider moving the less important stuff.

    @ecosea
    What browser are you using? Could you give a screenshot?
    Logo created - will be uploaded.

    Thanks.

    The design of the sight, the colors.. it screams postmodernism.

    I think the layout is clean and clear, except for the banner at the top, where the words are slightly difficult to read against the background. (I do have bad vision though, so that may be my own issue)

    Very easy to navigate, which I find extremely appealing in a website.

    I find it very descriptive and informative, yet written in a way that almost everyone should have ease understanding.

    I think you did a really good job on it. :)

    nice design, maybe if you add a little bit of inner shadow into the white borders, it will complete it

    Yep, I've brought it back to those more calm subtle colours.

    Thanks for the feedback - keep it going!
