Nice site. Easy navigation. Good transition and loading screen. Overall a good site.
nice site, well designed, with a good navigation. It reminds me a bit of Billz site, even though it “lacks” the extreme simplicity which was so charming. What I don’t like: the screen is too busy for me, I don’t like the music and that blue transition could be improved, I think.
None of your music choices seemed to fit your sites mood (although I do love the Mellencamp song, it just didn’t fit). I found that sometimes the text was hard to read over the background image. And it kinda does look like billz site. Some animation can be choppy and could stand to be smoothed out. Overall good site with simple and easy to understand navigation though.
It took a little while to load, but I loved the main page of this site. In fact, all the backgrounds were beautiful. The sky with the flying birds across it was a nice touch and the transitions between pages were well thought out and animated.
Designwise, it’s not as cleanly executed. The different parts of the site don’t blend together as well as they could; ie: the cartoon logo does not match the bright, photographic oranges, don’t really complement the ocean which doesn’t really work with the techno-inspired interface. These separate artforms work well separately… maybe you can combine a couple with good results… but using too many styles at the same time, makes for a slightly noisy site. However, 350z’ design capabilities are above average. 350z is extremely easy to navigate. The font is a bit too small to read in some areas, but overall, it’s a good site.
Couldn’t comment, the site was down…
pop-ups, no site
I am sorry man. I waiting until about last minute to place my vote to see if your site would be up, but it just wasn’t. I know that is not your fault, servers can be fickle like that, but I cannot critique or vote on something I can’t see. Unfortunate I know, sorry.
This was down, I’m afraid, so I can’t comment.
It was up when I posted the poll but it seems to be down at the moment… better luck next time.
Nice simple site. Easy to navigate.
Excellent site! Great motion, great colors, great details: exactly my kind of site I particularly like the transitions, and the panels at the bottom of the site, News, Featurd Site and Audio. Great work, really.
I think I’ll go for Slayerment, even though Sanjay design and yamo are really good too.
My exact style of site. I LOVE lines like that, and the look was compact yet not TOO compact. The transitions were smooth, the site was smooth, simple and functional. A++ from this ranger man.
Again, took a long time to load. All very nicely done, smooth animations and all, but a lot of loading required. Well laid out, but didn’t like the colours much. shrugs
Excellent site! Very usable and I find the layout to be quite refreshing. Flashers often stick to a horizontal 800x600+ layout, but I like that this site is vertical (even if it does require me to vertically). The initial loading took up quite a long time though, and each section required me to load some more… I think slayerment should look into better methods of optimizing this site. He also uses that slanted pattern too much at the top. Other than that, I think this is a great site and is bound to win SOTW someday.
Nice site. Pretty original design. Not a clone of 2A. Sound is good, maybe add a slight ambience…?
Nice-looking site, trendy, and with great ressources. But the site in itself is not very interesting.
There are a lot of great resources here, and the design is nice, but overall it isn’t too interesting.
Very pretty, but not much in the way of content… Just a lot of links. Looked nice, but didn’t thrill me. Sorry.
Flash is cool but that doesn’t mean every site can benefit from going Flash. Some sites are better left in plain HTML format. This site is a perfect example of this. Sure when I first loaded the base interface, I thought it looked good for a second, but beyond that, the site, in all honestly, was a complete bore. The text was too small to read without getting really close to my monitor and squinting. This site is basically a giant list of design links. Such a site would be better served in HTML format so that at least it is easily searcheable. I think some people forget that a sites layout is supposed to help display the content… not hinder it.
Nice site with good images. Could put some sound effects to good use however…
Very nice little site, with excellent pictures (much better than mine ) but the sliding trick has been done too many times. The site has a very good feel though (except the weird transitions).
The sliding effect is starting to become overplayed in the Flash/Web world now, so is the actionscript.org page turn effect, and the easing scroller from Crucial Limit. Overall good idea for a layout, but there are many overused effects jumbled into one layout.
I liked this one for its originality. Interesting layout and principle, perhaps a little bit slow, but there was a lot of thought put into this one. I liked it.
When the interface first loaded, I thought the interface was well designed and detail oriented (the paperclip, the post-it note, the way the polaroids were laid out. However each section required me to reload as if starting all over again. This was a little disconcerting. It’s too bad… this would be a great site.
