Main Website Layouts
- May 2004 - June 2008
I simplified the layout for this version as I wanted something that would last longer and be more simple to update. As well as to make it all easier on the eyes. Therefore the overall layout is fairly plain with a blue background and some stylised silhouettes of the main characters from the books. As the years rolled by however it got a bit tired.
- December 2003 - May 2004
Here is the first layout. I used images from Anime Project Alliance and We-Love-Anime within the layout. It suffered from too much symetry with the colours (in other words, all red and white). I had to try and tone down the size of the image by quite a large amount, but as I didn't want the image to look too damaged I didn't go too small... Also it was pretty hard to get an effect onto this layout that fitted without making everything look a mess, so it took quite a bit of editing and re-arranging. I spent a lot of time on the content (and I believe there was quite a sufficient amount of content upon this release... the site got up to 50mb). Now if only I had learnt more of the use of CSS before finishing this design, things would of been easier when updating aspects...
- January 2004 - Present
It's a pretty simple layout but I like it because I think the images used work really well together (the text at the bottom of the top image says
become part of the alien party). This was my first ever attempt at a fanlisting so I spent more time on the content, which honestly gave me a lot of difficulty in certain aspects of the code. But I was glad when it was all done.
