    hello,

    Finally getting there I'm putting up a little agency
    with a friend of mine specialising in graphic art and flashdesign.
    After having several projects done I think it is time
    to develop a space were people can reach us, watch our works
    and get a clean view of the style we're after.

    I developed this splash that will function as the backdrop for the site. this style fits the underground audience we aim for
    but on the other hand wouldn't it scare too much the people who look
    for the corporate approach.
    I think it is hard to fit those two into one site. should I bother? Put up two different sites or can I stick with this??

    Please have a look, tell what you think.

    Hi, just had a quick look if u have the time do 2, one crazy and one really corporate (make them vote on the front page before entering)

    my site is just crazy/silly (idea being if u like it we will get on if u dont then we wont)

    i dont think u can corner all the markets (mb i'm wrong) but if u are

    eg a grunge guru your sites are good but gothic dark, u will get work from like minded ppl, if u show a grunge site as a portfolio site to a wedding dress company......

    mb the image is a bit war, death, dark, mb dont rely on the image, unless thats what u base your work on, i have a montage of my fav work on the front page, show your work if they like it they will enter

    i like the colours alot

    Dark and underground is only good when you are assured that you have a market.

    The problems is ,,,as stated above
    you won't have a market.

    Bands who thrive in the dark side rarely have any money to speak of so it's doubtfull you will get clients from them.

    Bars are all owned by 40+ types that only care about how much guests will drink aren't impressed by it either.

    You may wish to showcase some darker work to show that you can do it but I wouldn't put it out as an agency theme.

    Guess it's way too dark now. For sure if you know I aim for
    underground house and not the dark, gothic scene.

    Thought it looked cool this afternoon. but didn't gave it that much thought tho.
    It's pretty hot in here too

    I'll give it a second go. stick to more minimal design.
    make the content speak for itself.


    here's some examples of my latest work :

    I think you'll hit a larger audience with the second version.

    Good work.
