Hi all.

My latest website had to look 100% professional and I think I have done the front page well enough but I really need ideas and concepts for the other pages. If you see other sites with good ideas eg: the photo gallery, then please post them so I can erm… take influence.

If anything no matter how small looks amateurish then please do post.

the thumbnail images on the photos page might look better if they are all the same size. other than that, looks pretty good.

This is one of the better automobile sites I've seen posted here hands down. Those that have posted prior to this with a car site should take notes!

I like the fact that you handled and contained the content in a 760 table. Not only that, the space between the header and footer is also where content is contained.

Its clean and has a great professional look to it (geat use of white and white space).

Keep up the good work.

Looks very professional. Nice, simple design. I liked the gif in the technical specifications page.

Good job!

I want a to be able to show the photographs in a clean but unique way so I am hunting around for ideas if anyone has any. I can use JavaScript but dont want to use flash on this bit.

I am going to re-do that in flash cos it will be a fraction of the size and i can fade.

Thanks I believe that (and you can quote me)… Good designers knows what to take away as well as what to add.

The thumbnails are a must....and I think that you could replace the text links with graphics so they would look a little more stylish.

Other than that, nice job!

Yeah! Very good.
I agree with everything :-)
You'll surely find something nice for the thumbnails. I'd keep the style and just put some kind of nice black/white border around them. But really....
niiicccce!

i have a script i've been using to make thumbnails utliizing the GD libraries, but in your case it might be better to make the thumbnails yourself, let me know if ya want it

np
the problem with a script for thumbnails is that it will make it proportianate to the original ratio. that is why i suggest you do it yourself ;)

A clean, stylish and contemporary site. It works seamlessly as an online extension of your car - sleek and refined.

Not much information (maybe one day you include some data/insight into the cars development/track history, etc ) but top-marks with what's there.

Nearly Faultless!

Hi,

Can't fault the design, it is excellent - very crisp and professional.

Maybe you could include an international dialling code... looks like a UK number, but others may not know this...

This site is nice. It looks simple but stylish. Well laid out and organized. The flash on the tech spec page was a good touch. Only thing is that you should allow viewers to interact with the site a little or the car. Overall i like the simplicity of the site.

I love the simple design. It's a very well designed web site. I liked the flash car on the spec. page.
I also think you should link the logo at the top to the homepage (the car).
But overall, 8.7/10 very good.

thanks. Its true the phone number needs a UK dialing code if only to note that its a UK product. The guy who I designed it for races the car and his family design and built it... he will add more pages when he has content soon.

Very good looking site!

If you are making any more content pages there, a suggestion would be to fade the picture of the car and put the content over it.. just an idea.

The logo is really cool. Like that a lot.

Looks nice but a bit too simple.

Simple design gives it spice. And you can never go wrong with white!

Plus it matches the car.

On thing I would like to mention is that the site has no substance. There are pictures, some specs, but that's it.

Fatten it up with some juicy content.

There are maybe 500 words on the site.

Bang! I'm gone.

How about some history? How about some stories of over coming obstacles? Wow us with a picture of your team? Personalize it a bit. How about some credentials? Where did your engineering team graduate from? Or is your team still in school? Who inspired you to create a car like this?

No history yet but planning on a "Press Section" when there is history to be made!

The picture of the team maybe a good idea but they are only a 3 man outfit and this may or may not look a little unprofessional - I just don’t know but I will suggest it (the owners visit this thread anyway).

The next step is Video of the car in action from outside and in. Maybe the car verses a Impreza.

Nice clean website. Not much to it but it gets the point across. Maybe add a little color to the site so it is not so white. But other then that, very clean and simple.

Good work
