Web Design Workshop is our regular community project where we ask readers to submit their work for your friendly, constructive criticism. It’s the perfect way to learn, offer opinions and have your own work critiqued! This week, a bit of self-interest on my part..
Rules of Engagement
Play nice! We deliberately select work which will benefit from advice and pointers. If you can’t be constructive in your comments, don’t. Other than that, offer any advice you can give. Feel free to link to examples and images which back up your points.
I launched this hotel website today so there’s a very good chance you’ll find mistakes! But who better to test it out and give feedback on the design than the global army of designers I deal with on a daily basis?!
The website needed to be simple, clear, responsive, atmospheric and free from nonsense. I don’t have many photos available at the moment, but they’ll be uploaded and refined once the weather here in Europe gets better. The site itself runs on WordPress, with WPML providing the localization (great for synchronizing content in multiple languages). Further down the line, I might well include more functionality such as actual room availability and online payment, plus I’d like to sort out some proper branding when I have time. Come on then – give it to me straight… Ian Yates
Looking for constructive criticism on your own work? Submit it for a workshop – most but not all submissions are published. Be patient though, there could be a queue..
