modplug webpage concepts
« on: January 08, 2006, 12:29:48 »
there seems to be a decent amount of talk about the modplug homepage. i feel for you guys. so, i put together some concepts that vary just slightly from one another.

lots of blue:

white-blue:

kinda scifi:

not my best work. i tried to keep it as simple as possible while having it still look kinda interesting.

it's really important to me that this community grows. a site that's welcoming to a wide audience would help draw in more people to the mpt community. a better community would really help the project and ... anyone, really. so if what i do can help that in anyway, i'd be full willing to deticate myself to that.

Thanks for your offer.

Some critisism about the images:

They look really nice, although I have the feeling that modplug is more associated with the colour red. Perhaps a white with red combination?

The design looks kind of compact which is really hard to enlarge in your design, which will cause text to not fit, especially with a forum.

Next to that, im still building the new system so design should be an issue at another stage in development.

well, i'm talking about a temporary replacement for what you have now. what you have now is not very easy to get around, for how simple it is. i feel like getting to the forum and downloading open mpt should be right in plain site using less text.

i'd like to make something really simple to throw in there. just temporarily. i'll try making a more conventional design using the red color scheme.

btw, i don't think modplug. com is the home of free music. i think it'd be more honest to say... "the home of modplug tracker". we should be honest to search engines and the people that come here. and isn't open MPT bug free enough to be the main download link?

Ah you mean the homepage with the plain old design!

Yeah its ugly, and should at least share this design. I totally agree on that.

Note that this entire site is only temporary until the new system is finished. I don't have access to the code on the main site though, so hopefully MisterX has enough time to alter his design.

I don't like the design that much, but its also too heavy on graphics. There's no way this can be turned into a simple page so that 56k6 users can view the page properly.
