Hey guys, I just started work on a new website that is listed below:


Let me know what you think. Keep in mind that the 4 grey rectangles at the top will be replaced with pictures of 4 different bars (outside picture).

Also, for a little bit of information on the site.... it's going to be a nightlife information and community site for the London, Ontario area.

I like it! I think it's got a nice simply layout and is quite attractive.
One thing i think it that it needs more colour. Its a website advertising The nightlife for London, so it should be really colourful and eye-catching. (and maybe something flashing  :P)
To be honest i wouldn't really take my advice..
All the sites i make are shite.
So actually do the opposite to what i just said.
Argh im so depressed!

well that was a pretty bipolar response.

i agree, you need more colour.  seeing as its a "bar scene" type of site, you should also perhaps make it a darker colour scheme, to remind us of a night life.  when i think of a bar scene, i think of neon signs, bouncers, strobe lights and spilly drinks indoors, and generally as little natural light as possible.  keep in mind i distinguish "bar" from "pub," the former being mostly as a meat market and dance floor.

i can imagine adding some more urban photography to this (perhaps some night shots in the city, as well as those bar photos you were mentioning) are in order.  however for readability, white w/ black (or dark) coloured font is good, as you've already got in your content area.  i would also maybe make the logo text stand out a little bit more; i barely noticed it when i looked the first time.

Whilst clean.....

a) The text is hard to read as it lacks contrast.
b) It doesnt validate - no doc type...big no no
c) YOu could easily do this with CSS...why not have a go rather than using tables.

Wait...I've got it...Bollocks, it's gone again!

If at first you don't succeed....stop using ASP and get onto PHP
