So finally, after what seems like ages of tinkering and tweaking, my new website is online. You can find it at sambennettdesign.co.uk, and it’s been built using fluid grids in dreamweaver so should work no matter what device you view it on. All my work is on there, so feel free to have a look through everything and if you find anything that doesn’t work or looks out of place, just give me a shout so I can fix it.
So I found this the other day when I should have been finishing off work for the deadline I had on Friday, and it shows just how far website design has come since the mid 90’s. Space Jam was one of my favourite films when I was growing up and I’m a bit of a sucker for good web design at the moment after designing one for the past few weeks for a project of mine.
Retro design and a complete inconsistency across the pages make this website so bad its good! Who doesn’t want bright, colourful, slightly illegible text on a starry background with all manner of clickable objects and menus? Viewing it brought back some great memories of watching the film and I had great fun viewing all the pages and taking part in a trivia quiz I found by clicking on a randomly placed button. Is it too late to nominate this for best website of 1996?

P.s. thanks once again for helping my blog to another milestone of 6,000 views. Keep your eyes peeled for a redesigned website for my work coming soon!
You may have noticed at some point over the past few weeks that I have changed my logo. I just realised that I hadn’t posted about it and asked for your valued opinions on it, so I have used some spare time to do so now.
I chose to just use my initials, creating a link between the bottom half of the S and the B. It’s probably by no means finished yet (I may round some more of the edges), but let me know what you think about it at the moment.
Heres how much the logo has progressed over the last few months:
I’m planning on “branding myself” for one of my upcoming self-initiated projects, so look out for changes to both the logo and my website in the future. Again, any feedback on the logo, however big or small is appreciated.
