website graphics
show user profile  zeefusion
I am currently updating the background of my website and i could do with some feedback, I wanted something simple.
http://www.mintviz.com/

I think there needs to be something to the right of the logo but not sure what :/

I really like this type of backgroundhttp://creativeoverflow.net/
random objects and lines that fit in with my websites content.

you need some sort of iconic imagery to the right of your logo. Something that you could use to tag items and have it be related directly to your name.

The graphics on that site are nice. If you know how to make that stuff, just spend the time, if you don't, bust out your wallet and buy some nice vector art, and toss in your own personal flair, maybe render out some things youve made with a transparency mask so you can throw then in where they've put iphones and random stuff.

Also, look into photoshop brushes, brusheezy is a good place to start.

Are you struggling with the what or the how of getting something like the creative overflow site's background?

Maybe some kind of stylized blueprint-y vector graphics would work well with your site. Somewhat related to your arch/viz stuff and wouldn't dominate the page.

On a side note, your second section on the main page is way to busy with the background you're using. Very cluttered, difficult to read, giving me a headache (or maybe that's the booze from last night).

Yeah I like it. It might be a little on the 'arty' side compared to the content of the site, but it is a nice complement to the overall layout.

And by the second section I meant the content area below the large image gallery at the top. It appears however, that it was my noscript firefox plugin that was causing the issue. It looks fine once I allow your site in noscript. It was showing up with your "L’Oreal Youth Code Gondola Display" image in the background before I disabled noscript. Weird.
