    I'm working on a layout for a website that I'm building. We have to choose a film and build a Flash website for it. I'm just laying it out in PS right now and will be transferring it to Flash soon. But here's what I have so far. I'm kinda stuck on the header/nav bar area, so any suggestions would be helpful. The header/nav area are no where close to finished. I want it to look similar to the content area below it... clean lines with the oranges and blues.




    And here's the splash page:

    Try some cleaner text, and maybe lower the opacity on the orange bar.

    I'd almost try to blend the bar in a little more. With cleaner text, it'd look hot.

    Redid the site, it came out way better than the first time. I'm still playing with content type faces and a few other things. Then I'm bringing it into Flash to animate.

    Home Page


    Info Page


    Images Page (mouse over a thumbnail, it shows in the black box)


    Video/Soundtrack Page (definitely still working on the layout and typefaces for this one)


    Links Page


    I also have a splash page that's exactly like the original, but I have it all animated already. I can't put it on here since it's a Flash file though.

    Mag, extremely impressive if you did this all on your own.

    That personalized type of website template.... Developers usually charge a $1000 or more for. (to do for other companies)

    You should seriously get into Website Development.

    I made it all myself (minus the actual TRON images).

    I've been thinking about getting into that. I understand/learn code very easily and I find designing layouts to be extremely easy for me. I'm really enjoying the Flash program but it's going to become obsolete extremely soon, so I need to start learning HTML5. I think once I graduate, I'm going to take some web development and coding courses on the side and see where that takes me.

    HTML, PHP , Javascript is basically all you need to know these days.

    And Google can teach you about 90% of it.

    The same for learning Linux, Unix, server admin ,etc..

    People waste too much $ on college these days.

    Well when you can afford it, why not? Plus working with others opens up networking opportunities.

    I also want to start doing visual effects, so I need to start looking into that as well. Motion graphics and web design are my two interest points.

    There's something about blues and oranges for me.. they always seem to come out so nicely together.

    The updated version looks professional.

    You say that as if companies don't want/aren't looking for college/advanced education on someone's resume. WTF? =| =|

    If 2 people came to me about a job, with each having similar experience, but on one's resume it said "Self-taught/Google'ing tutorials" under Education, and the other's said "Art institute of X", who in the f*ck do you think I would hire? Who in the f*ck do you think ANYONE would hire?

    idk, especially with something artistic related. college education doesn't necessarily equal good art. i found that art school was to much about following formulas of past success and less about breaking away from the known (what i think art is) to express yourself.

    but all that aside, mag this looks really good man. if i had been shown this without knowing you made it, i would have thought it was straight from disney.

    Being A Business owner I hear this a LOT!! Expesally since Everything I know about photography and editing I taught myself (And not googled or youtubed either). And there is A girl in town who is now trying to do the same thing. But she went to college and all that. Not to sound conceided but my work is A million times better than hers. And she thinks that holding that college course over my head, in which I just toss up one of my photos and smash thee living **** out of her.
    I know this is not the case with every career choice, but in my case and mags, we dont need the degree to make great work.

    It depends on the art, I guess. I've never really understood college education when it came to fine art (studio art - painting, dance, etc). But it makes sense with graphic design since there are fundamentals with technology/marketing/legal/etc. Understanding the history of art and the fundamentals is essential for art students, but I agree that the education doesn't exactly promote creativity.

    And as for getting a degree, it doesn't mean your art is better, but it means you posses the knowledge and discipline that companies are looking for. You're still trying to make a career out of your art, and having a college degree is what helps in getting that job. You can be one of the most artistically-skilled designers in the country, but as soon as a company see's you don't have a degree, they're gonna throw your application in the trash.
