Help with my website's design


Recommended Posts

Hi,I'm developing this website for a friend, it's for her journalism/PR. So it needs to look pretty professional. However what i've come up with so far looks like a children's book! I could really do with some pointers to help steer it in the right direction.This is the website:http://www.flatballphoto.co.uk/buzz-word/Here are a couple of variations on the theme i've come up with.http://www.flatballphoto.co.uk/buzz-word/template_v5-(3).jpghttp://www.flatballphoto.co.uk/buzz-word/template_v5-(5).jpgShe really likes the bee logo, the calm tranquil feel and the layout. However we need to work out how to make it look like a PR company and not a kids book!Any ideas/input would be welcome!

I think it is quite good, and I can see all the pictures :)Perhaps a symmetrical rollover effect for the links at the top would be nice, instead of the current bullet to the left.

I think you are going overboard with the cute cartoon imagery for a journalist/pr site.instead of all these different things like the bee, the wraped text, the grass and sky. do up a clean business looking theme and include just one of those things, perhaps the bee. that on top of a neat business theme will be enough. look at a site like this: http://www.oaktreecreative.com/ there are a few cartoony elements but over all the design is businessy and professional looking. its a balanced juxtaposition of the two. if you go to any of the css website showcase sites you will find tons more examples like that.

Yeah, that rounded edge is not something i'm a fan of but it featured in an early design she liked so it stuck around.Here are a couple of new designs i've come up with.http://www.flatballphoto.co.uk/buzz-word/i...late_v6-(1).jpghttp://www.flatballphoto.co.uk/buzz-word/i...late_v7-(1).jpgWhat do you think?
