Find out what are the most common mistakes that you can make while designing a website, or getting one designed, and how to avoid them. Even though some effects/features might look appealing, they can hurt your Search Engine rankings, and even repel your visitors/customers away!
1. Splash Screens
Another important point: Do NOT try to make the ads look like the content and trick the user into clicking on it. This will probably piss off the viewer. The user is more valuable to you if he/she returns to the site for another visit.
I have finally launched my own website for displaying my web/graphic design portfolio as a freelance designer. “Design Cranium” features some of my best works in both website and graphic design. More details about the website after the jump.
The contact form uses PHP to shoot me a mail whenever a user clicks “send message”.
The testimonials page lists out the comments of people I have worked with on previous projects.
I am now available for freelance design work at very affordable prices! For full details, check out the website at www.designcranium.com
If you have any suggestions and/or comments, please share!
CICR: Creativity and Innovation Cell in Robotics is the robotics society in the Jaypee Institute of Information Technology (Noida, India). I developed this website (complete design + code) as a part of the website for the college’s annual festival – Jive-X. Detailed breakdown of the page, links and more info after the jump. Click the link below to jump to the complete article.
The website was designed under the following conditions in mind:
- It should work on older browsers like IE4+ etc.
- Dynamic news content which can be updated easily
- Simple, fast loading design with minimal images
- Grunge/rough feel
- optimized for 1280×800 resolution
A friend of mine is making an “un”official website for the Commonwealth Games 2010 which are to take place in Delhi, India in October 2010. (Oh boy. Not much time left now!) The website aims at providing latest new updates, pics, new developments etc along with facilities such as information about Delhi, Food and beverages, Accomadation etc. in Delhi for tourists and athletes. The website is online at http://www.cwg-delhi.com
Please keep in mind that only the design is complete and uploaded, there is no active content as of now. Please view the complete article for more web-design related aspects of the website.
The website also provides customized twitter updates using PHP. Scrolling news headlines at the top and latest scrolling pics in the middle complete the page. There is also a custom count-down timer counting down (duh) to the date 3 October. Thats when the games start. They end on 14th October.
One more thing. My Google PageRank just moved from 2 to 3!! YAY!
One more thing. I am launching my own website very soon! Will post with the name and link as soon as I have got the hosting. The website design is ready, and I will be putting that up too within 2-3 posts.
So.. A post after a very long time. Sorry for that. No excuses I guess.
I have been busy with web-designing. So my next few posts will be regarding the websites that I made during my holidays.
View the complete article for full-size image and links to the website.
The website is called “Leap The Divide”. It is a non-profit organisation that provides low-cost and high-quality outsourced services while creating a positive development impact. (quoted)

A website theme/template with Nuclear Waste based colors. (What does Nuclear Waste look like??) Fully W3C compliant, Valid XHTML and CSS friendly. An easy to code, visually appealing design. The colors provide a nice contrast giving an easy-to-read interface. Large buttons and prominent text makes navigation easy.
Its been a very long time since I last posted. My college started (summer break over) last week and suddenly I was thrown into a mash-up of sweaty bus-rides, non-stop lectures and long practicals.
Anyways, I might do a tutorial for this theme soon. I am also working on a website for the Robotics group CICR (Creativity and Innovation Cell in Robotics) for my college, so that has a naturally higher priority.
Here is the full version of the theme:
