Smart Openers Web 0.3 by MediaDesign Smart Openers Web 0.3 by MediaDesign
Update 30/09/09: Firstly I gave the site a little bit more contrast. I added another navigation bar on the bottom of the page for more accessibility. Finally the logo I changed the font back to the original.

Update 30/09/09: Re-rendered product more accurately, made custom icons for header, added red button per request from client, "squared" the text sections, added small details.

I also did an inverted version of the layout which I may or may not post.

Update 29/09/09: Spaced the content out a bit, added small details.

A design in progress for an Australian home automation company (Smart Openers). I will post updates.

I'm yet to start the other pages.

Thanks man :) Well the only thing I can really share is the font. I wanted to use Eurostyle but I couldn't find it for free, but I found a similar type font called Waukegan LDO [link]

Everything else was my own work (except the banner image which was given to me by the company).

I'm really enjoying this design. Very slick overall, and the depth you've worked in on the header is very sophisticated.

I really dig this! The only thing that I can think of changing might be making the text more uniform. I don't know if it would be possible for you make each body of text square? It would be interesting to see how it looks :)

Other than that little suggestion, this site looks VERY professional!

How often do you do websites? Are you basically a freelance contractor?

MediaDesign Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2009
No worries man, it's why I put my work up here - to get feedback from you guys :D

I used to work for a media company part time and I managed all the web side. Unfortunately I never could really do work to my full potential there so I got used to making half-assed sites, as my gallery suggests. I've since quit, and this is my first real attempt at something professional. I'm doing this site as a freelance contracter, yes :)

:) you would think after 7 years of working in Photoshop I`d be better but meh (a deviation I posted today proves this)...

I`m determined though :P.

It's ok man, but imo you really need to devote some more space under the titles " Featured Project " and " Latest News " as the text here is sooo locked in and claustrophobic :(

Other than that the logo looks great, the little indents, and drop shadows and lighting effects go well in this, and the padding and spacing seems fine in other areas of the layout, just fix what i said above, and i think it could hold great potential for you :)

Thanks mate :D I agree there needs to be more spacing with those headings. I had a lot of trouble placing them; I might move them back to their original positions, or move the content further down.

I would go as far as saying the whole site is a little "claustrophobic". I might space the content out more and see how that works.

Thanks again ;)
