Looks great, good work with the update. Hopefully your new “store front” attracts more positive attention to your portfolio.
I really would work on the Buttons again, they are hardly readable. Maybe it doesn’t look like that on your screen Udo, but it’s close to the edge so on some customer screens with other brightness settings it will be unreadable.
Nur ein gutgemeinter Rat
I don’t like, sorry. Graphics, fonts, colors looks very non-professional, early 90th, category buttons don’t work, all 50 stars on page and 3 yours portraits (profile pic, avatar, featured item) – looks like some kind of megalomania. I recommend to hire some illustrator on Microlancer to help you with this page. And by the way, is it allowed by rules to self-promoting here on forum?
Thank you everybody.
@Creattive: I will work on the buttons again. Thanks.
@Kontramax: It’s OK if you don’t like. Never expected everybody to like. Further you are a really multitalented and very creative person. I know I will never more reach this level in graphics and webdesign. And I never wanted to suggest some megalomania, how you call it. I compared my new page with my old page. When I would do it with yours I would never be happy.
But – I understand. So when the time has come I will look for professional help. Microlancer is a good idea.
Now I have first to concentrate on my talent again – Music.
If this is kind of self-promotion than please lock this thread. Sorry, I just wanted to present my new page look and make sure known people will find back to me again.
I find the muted brown tones soothing and relaxing, the gradients brings Udo to the center of the focus area of the page, creating a welcoming atmosphere, and the signature makes it personal and makes the page seem strangely familiar and inviting. The green text makes me think of money, and when I think of money I want to spend money, so I know Udo’s page is a good place to start. The 5 stars everywhere lets me know what to expect and let’s me know this is no ordinary author, this is Udo – SUPERSTAR
thank you so much for these very kind words. I’m happy especially “you” write this. And I’d be happy if my page is really suggesting just 10% of soothing and relaxing from what I feel now.
Don’t know, maybe the stars are really too much. But I can’t help myself – to me it just looks “brilliant”. haha
I really have nice ideas how something could look like. But I’m not able to do that. I know that Kontramax is right and everybody who wants to get up with online marketing has to present it as professional as possible. And sometimes we need help like little companies needs a account staff for example.
Please don’t call me superstar. That’s definitly not what I suppose to be. I’m glad when I find a way to hold people more than a second on my page.
