    Website Intro

    Hey Everyone!!

    Im creating an intro page to my site, and I want to know what you all think... Im am half & half on this, I like it, but i think its a bit to small, and im just not sure on it...

    What do you think I could do to improve on it, or just some comments...

    Not too shabby, I love a porsche any day of the week.
    I say more emphasis on the access link though. (my opinion, no biggie)
    There isn't that much gray on the actual site though.
    Although I have to ask why you feel the need for an intro page at all?

    PS: I'm lovin' the site, it looks great.

    I think the splash and the site looks very good indeed, but one point, why need a splash at all, seeing as the site is a business.


    Quick tip, you would add splashes on a web design website, online businesses tend not to have a splash, as it is annoying otherwise. Design companies use them (we do) to give users an option of interface.


    Very nice website indeed.


    Best of luck!

    Well, I decided to add that because I want users to easily be able to go to the auto inventory, or the parts & accessories. I have the link on the site, but sometimes you have people on there who dont know anything, and they will miss the link, then call us and ask us where it is... Kinda gets annoying, so i figured i would put the two links right there, where no one can miss it.

    It looks great! Here is my critique:

    The right links look a little fuzzy on the load (rough around the edges) -- you can most likely fix this with a little photoshop retouching or using a higher res image.

    I love the look of the graphic and the use of the pixelated font (always my favorite) - and I think it looks great...

    my only concern is the 'swoosh' in the background. I don't want to step on your design toes, but it is an element that TAKES EMPHASIS AWAY from images and the links.

    If you watch how your eyes shift, you first notice the large curve at the top of the swoosh [because it is the largest area of light color tone] -- and you have difficulty pulling your eyes away.

    More attention would be to your graphics if you find a replacement (darker tone) or remove it all together.
