Ths is the biggest overhaul of our website since we launched it in 2004 - we found we were contacted by all kinds of people interested in footwear design and our website has developed to reflect that. It was also terribly out of date - I’ve still kept some old stuff on there - I’m a sentimental old thing…
Once you decide to update your site, you find that it’s such a bottomless pit - we have been reviewing ithis one since January. We were still up til midnight last night working on the alt tags
Anyway, folks, any glaring omissions? Any comments? Any links we should be adding? All criticisms gratefully received.
Thanks, this is a great resource for anyone interested in footwear design.
I like the “homeys” you designed. especially the tread.
I want a pair.
I like the simple splash page with the dot theme and animate gif. It is fun and simple. The amount and breadth of your work is amazing. I don’t feel the page layout sdo it justice. They seem to be a bit cluttered, with some images left justified, some right justified. The “To Top” links just feel like an old website.
I’d work it into a system of thumbnail pages, and less text. Simplify and plan the way you want viewers interact with it. I think once everything is presented in a consistent manner, it will clean up and start to sing more.
I like the French Connection and Golddigga product!
Thanks for sharing it.
Thanks for your comments - we will try and space out the pages a bit better. But I’m wary of getting rid of too much text. We didn’t have any text on the front page originally, which I preferred but I was advised to move my news there by my brother. He is going to take a look a the weekend, I’ll see what he thinks - he works in etail marketing.
I’d love to put some educational stuff on there, too, perhaps a project that tutors (or students) could have a go at doing…
