The ones that didn't quite make it

28 Oct 2004

Clearing out my ‘dev’ folder on the new site, I came across some of the site comps (created in Fireworks) that didn’t make it. They’re just the initial ideas, but here they are if you’re interested…

I quite liked this one, but The Missus felt that the whole retro/worn look is getting quite common, and others do it better. I’ve got a thing about 1940’s-1960’s car magazines, and I’ve been desperately wanting to use that MG illustration somewhere

This one was trying to get away from everything. I’d found an illustration of a boy holding a prism up to the light, and again, really wanted to use it. This wasn’t it though.

This is the one I created in July, that parts were taken from for the new design. Too bland, odd hierachies of headings. You can see some of the elements that made it into this new design though.

This was the next attempt. A refresh of the previous design – rounded corners, more colours. I still like this one, and who knows, it may appear again. There’s that boy illustration again…

    You paint a great mural, and some idiot adds their ugly tag to the little of space you left to balance the composition.
