Kacked Redesigned

Going through this redesign thing with my web site. It started when I realized that I had been messing around with different things on my server. Stuff like a comics site, chatroom, photo gallery. I mean, I been doing this for a while now. Everytime I had set something like that up, I always seemed to do it as a separate web site. It occurred to me the other day that they were really just different manifestations of kacked behavior.

Time to fold them all up in one. I figure the best way to go about coming up with a new design for the site is to lay it out using something like Gimp. It's just easier to change it around until I get something that appeals to me. So, I did that and ended up with something that tickles me, but there are still a few problems with it. I can't quite put my finger on them all. Best to let the deep part of my mind wrestle with it for a bit. Who knows maybe I'll just shine the whole thing on...

Here's the lastest Gimp mockup

Everything is a place holder --it's just a mockup right? Something to give me an idea of the space and how the elements relate to one another. The logo will probably be smaller (and have a little more polish to it), the smart remark on the right will probably be different or something else entirely. The image bar was cribbed from somewhere --it's just temporary as well. I found it when I went to a well know public domain archive. I was going to get a bunch of free images and mock up something like that but then they had already done the work for me. So I just snagged it, it's only temporary.

The elements in the menu bar might look better if they were distributed evenly across the window. I can play with that when it's html rather than a graphic. The idea is that the color/tint of the page and color/tint of the image bar will change depending on what part of the site you are in. While somehow retaining the same major theme.

It occurs to me know as I'm looking at this again that the essense of the redesign is just going to be one of those image slice javascript rollover thingies that I can do using Fireworks. The whole thing can include a new kacked logo, menu and everything. Hmm...
