    Freshly~Squeezed~Media

    hey guys,

    what do u think of this propposed design for my new site.

    i would like to know what u think of the concept ( fruity, fresh & chrome )

    i would like some pointers on the fonts ( there not right at the moment)

    and some ideas for background music ( make it jazzy, funky, fresh and summery)

    and of course any ideas about how you think it could be implimented best in flash.

    i like this concept lots, see what u think

    p.s. i know it is clear that inspiration has come from 3 or 4 sources you dont need to tell me where i got it from becuase i know. and dont use the word rip because making a rip is just a straight copy, in this i have changed everthing drastically and added a new slant.

    edit: this is the link that i promised everyone later in this thread. read the posts for the full story.

    I like it. The fruit one, not the glass one. It's clean and easy on the eyes. I like the color and the navigation looks easy. Throw in some nice animations and you're good to go.

    I didn't really notice your fonts, so they're not bad, but as you said, they could be better. All I can say is to open up a font collections and start looking. I like your general idea of a simple, stout looking font that's not too strong or too light though.

    No bad,

    But it's a bit bland for my liking.

    Is this REALLY your serious attempt at world domination?

    If you wanna see a SERIOUSLY cool site go to:

    Hm. Looks like a good idea.
    Oddly, I like the one with the glass of water better.
    Since your using bold fonts on the right,
    I suggest using bold fonts as well on the
    navigation as well. This will balance it out, and I
    like the look of the bold font.
    Of course, don't make it so small and so bold that
    they become blurry.

    Keep it up!

    P.S. Instead of those CDs... with the RS look... how about... Lemons?

    I like both of the concepts.. I really like it a lot!
    It look simple, and I can see everything. The pictures and graphics look great. I also really really like the little line background.

    I would keep those windows FIXED... I don't usually like sites that have dragable windows.

    It is a great start. For music, I really don't know.. but I will keep my ears open. If I hear something cool, I will tell you.

    I really like the concept and your design, my only suggestion would be to use higher quality shots of fruit. Also have you considered painting a shadow or mock reflection with photopshop? This may give the fruit a nice 3D effect.

    Keep it up!

    samcboulder. what do u mean higher quality. the where at extremely high resolution it only looks different because i added a filter and had to reduce the image size to get flashkit to accept it.

    and also

    how would painting a shadow make it look 3d. anyway. ill try it out.

    Gloomycus. this is just in my experiences i might be wrong ( about the .pngs

    anyway thats a little off the topic

    lets get back to buisness

    Nice design, great colour choice to go with the lemon and lime. I personally like the idea of the image changing and I like the version n-gen knocked up... a possibily.

    As for music... go for something mellow with a fluidy feel... nothing to harsh, same goes with sound effects...

    Good job and post the results...
