Pixelatelier Web design company - please review


Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

 

I'd like to have some feedback for my new website: pixelatelier

 

ww w.pixelatelier.com

 

Pixelatelier is a web and graphic design studio located in Caracas, Venezuela. I designed and programmed it. It's a very simple layout with some JavaScript effects. I tried my best to validate the HTML code. Also, please excuse the English faults, I'm not proficient in that language.

 

Any critics or suggestions are welcome.

 

I hope you like it!

 

Thanks,

 

Eduardo

Thank you very much Susie,

 

Yes, there is plenty of info about fancybox. Maybe I can help you (I'm not an expert though). I'll try to find some tutorials or links for you.

 

Cheers,

 

Eduardo

 

N.B. By the way, your portfolio is awesome!

Please, it's not a problem at all!

 

Look here:

 

http://fancybox.net/api

 

In advanced options, the very first row:

 

type Forces content type. Can be set to 'image', 'ajax', 'iframe', 'swf' or 'inline'

 

I used iframe. It allows you to display text, links, images, etc.

 

Look how I did:

 

<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {

 

 

$("a[rel=example_group]").fancybox({

 

'width' : 900,

'height' : 600,

'autoScale' : false,

'cyclic' : true,

'hideOnContentClick' : false,

'imageScale' : false,

'scrolling' : 'no',

'centerOnScroll' : false,

'padding' : 0,

'showNavArrows' : true,

'hideOnOverlayClick' : false,

'transitionIn' : 'fade',

'transitionOut' : 'fade',

'type' : 'iframe'

 

});

 

});

 

</script>

 

Make sure to set 'hideOnContentClick' to false, otherwise you won't be able to click on any links inside the iframe. E.G. an external link to a website.

 

I hope this helps...

 

Cheers,

 

Eduardo

Looks good! A couple design related comments that may help the site:

 

-- The footer area (social networking links and contact information) seems a bit off balance. I think that is because the center content fills the full column, but both the left and right columns are light on content. I think switching the middle and right content would help fix this, because there would be more even space (visually) between columns.

 

-- Maybe the "U" in "About us" should be capitalized? That would make things more consistent.

 

-- Add some bottom padding on the list items on your Services page? They feel very squished together at the moment. (http://www.pixelatelier.com/services/index.php)

 

Looks pretty good otherwise. Like Susie said, I like the popup portfolio idea. I'm working on a redesigned portfolio myself, and that was an idea that I had originally planned to do but eventually scrapped since it didn't seem like a good fit for my portfolio pieces.
