Andertoons Redesign(?) – Part 2

Wow. A lot of people didn’t like that last design at all.

Most people said they missed the rollover menu on the left, and that the site was, well, boring.

After sleeping on it for a night, I have to agree. (One point for the wisdom of crowds!)

So, after about 3 hours of fiddling, erasing, deleting, copying, fiddling, etc… I think I came up with a concept that you might like better:


(Again, click on the image to see it 800×600)

It continues down past the screen break, but I wanted to see what would show without scrolling.

After playing with some basic shapes and some layer effects, I ran across this sort of paper scrap concept.

I tried to make all the shapes a little abnormal so it looked more or less hand cut, and I arranged them not necessarily in line with each other.

I’ve also decided to keep the rollover buttons on the left, but I didn’t fill anything in pending a final design.

After so many hours looking at this it’s honestly a little hard to be objective. So, crowd wisdom here I come!

Whatcha think?

Andertoons Redesign(?) – Part 1

OK, so I’m considering changing the overall look and feel of the site.

I’ve already gotten some very nice and helpful comments on my previous post, so I thought I’d show you what I had in mind:

New Andertoons 1

(Click on it to see it at 800 x 600)

The reason it’s in grayscale is that I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to color.

So rather than confuse the design right out of the gate with horrible color choices, I thought this would make seeing the layout easier.

I’m thinking of ditching the little animated tabs on the left for a cleaner top menu. I’m thinking the words would change color on rollover.

Other pages would follow in much the same vein.

So, whatcha think?
