New V3 Mocks

Posted by Canadonian on Jan. 5, 2011, 9:40 p.m.

Okay, so here's what I've got so far. I've looked at all the blog posts about V3's design and considered all the mock ups made by Misconstruct, Moikle and Mordi (and anyone else who's contributed), and I've decided to revamp the design almost completely. I'll be doing my best to make the css more 'standardized' thanks to everyone who hates the way I do it, and perhaps work towards making the site completely skianable.

This will take time though, so don't hold me to it. I work full time+, so what I do on this site is the result of the following equation:

((work + girlfriend + friends + free time) - total time) * motivation = 64D.V3

As you can see, the major variable is motivation, and I mainly get that from reading everyone's comments and seeing that my work will mean something to someone…

They are all pretty much the same except for the background colour of the sidebar to show you what it would look like with different colours. Oh, and the last screen shot has a different searchbar image.

Cheers

Oh, and for those who don't like the new 'sixty four digits' font, screw you. I bought it just for 64D, so unless you want to suggest a new font from http://www.myfonts.com and buy it for me the community, it's staying.

I thought you were joking about the font at first. So because you bought the font, all the users of the site must endure it, even if another font would be better for the design. Logic escapes this.

I actually think that font fits well with the design, but if you guys can find a better suited font, i don't mind switching. Just as long as it's not over 50$.

So 64D.V3 is always negative? I mean that is under the assumption that the sum of work, girlfriend, friends, and free time never exceed total time (I mean no quantity of time can exceed all the time in the world, at least in theory). Well sure you could always create time, but seriously I doubt you have that kind of power.

Then again maybe it can be positive if and only if motivation is constantly negative. So by caring so little it becomes negative you can in fact get more done than before!

Aww, I only kid Canadonian :P

No worries. I'm a artsy designer, not a programmer ;)

I thought the equation was a joke too but then I realized that it's more complicated than that seeing how the complexity of the high numbers required in expressing the total time var results in a whole new mathematical system that only exists in parallel universes and basically means that negative numbers contains must be thought of as 20/64 fractions

Which of course makes sense seing that Canadonian works on 64D more time than there is due to his work time being more efficiant than his idle time with amotivation running at a 300% constantly.

Also mock 1 looks too coorporation like but I supposed that wont be the default.

Search glass is cool, especially the big one which though looks like a mistake slightly imo.

Also the page as a whole looks a bit bright.

That sidebar is still

HUGE!

I don't really mind the banner font, to me it looks fine. I'll look through my font collection for a replacement, though, if people really really hate it.

The magnifying class icon looks even worse D: (though the second/third one is the lesser of two evils)

Also, why the colourful background and harder-to-read white title text?

Personally, I think it would be a good start to fix all the login/logout problems and displaying graphics wrong and popping out random error messages before polishing the form. And before you burn me alive for not reporting every single problem via bug reports - the problems are so general I don't even know where to start.

Font: Interstellar Crap

Font: Viper Nora

Font: League Gothic

EDIT: Oh lovely, the new parser doesn't lt me use relative paths for images.

Or you can revert to the old font, which wouldn't cost anything. League Gothic looks nice as well.

Must say that I love the mockups though.
