    hit a mental block, feedback might help...

    Im currently in the early stages of building my freelance site and to be honest, Im not really getting in to it. Thought you guys could give me some feedback..?

    onesixfor...

    As I said, its in the really early stages so the only example of the deepest nav level is under print then the first link.

    Im not really liking the navigation, I would really like to see it more fluid (I think that would open up the design a hell of a lot) but having the idea and actually creating from that are two poles apart... (http://www.flashkit.com/board/showthread.php?t=674374)

    As mentioned, Im looking to make the site more fluid with a strong typographic edge but I think the combination of uninspiring navigation and poor transitions are letting it down..?

    Any feedback would be greatfully received. Thanks in advance.

    I just viewed the above thread... If you're still looking for a solution to this problem, take a look at the 'Scrolling Thumbnail Panel' video tutorial featured on www.gotoandlearn.com

    Its very simple to follow and could be adapted very easily to suit your specifications, I think.

    Aside from the navigation issue, I think your site layout is fresh, simple and understated, this is always the best approach for an online portfolio as it alows the displayed work to speak for itself.

    hope this helps.

    Thanks for that dude, really appreciate it. I'll have a look at the tutorial and update you all on any updates...

    //UPDATE// I never thought of approaching it like that. ive used similar methods for scrolling thumbs but never thought of turning it vertically for navigation..!

    Thanks again, stu

    Thanks again guys, really appreciate the feedback.

    Ive been having a bash at the 'vertical thumbnail scroller' navigation and although its working okay(ish) I wouldnt feel 100% confident having it 'represent me' so i think that as time is now so tight im going to stick with the highly unoriginal navigation and get everything in place for launch.

    Hopefully by then I'll have some time to work more on the navigation..!
