I know I'm putting the curse of the 'Don't Blog About...' Gods on this thing, but I've started to put together the all-new Dave site, and I'd like some feedback. It's on the fast track, becuse I really do now need to have something that makes me look like the man.
All you'll get now is a title page and some rollovers - nothing fancy - but tell me if you think the links encompass enough range to allow me to break the different areas of the site into manageable chunks. Meaning 'Design' would house all print and web design work - and is really the reason for the site to go up, frankly; 'Illustration' would be plain old drawing and all the comics work; 'Music' would be (of course) all things music; and 'Words' would lead back here and possibly to some sort of cache of other written works. Said 'other written works' are admittedly somewhat thin on the ground. Still, given that I've written close to six hundred of these Ramblers (this is number 571 you're reading right now), I think the 'Words' section justifies its existence.
Note that sound is part of it, so put your speakers on... now.
Go here. (Then come back).
There's probably going to be a small series of secondary links under the main frame - contact (of course), site map, about, and possibly a section called 'juvenilia,' which solves the problem of archiving and having too much outdated work cluttering up the main site. It also solves the problem of having people notice that a drawing that I did when I was thirteen is better than something I could do now. Thankfully, at least my music is much better, these days.
Right now, I'm leaning towards each quadrant of the site having a different feel, although trying to keep some kind of thematic unity going. If that's colors, or fonts, or whatever, I'm still working out.
Anyway, critique, please. I know every time I've talked about the revamped site on the Rambler in the past, I've fished for feedback and ideas and gotten nothing but virtual crickets, but a man can dream.
