This was a design for a 99designs contest. It's for an online mobile phone store, if you couldn't tell at first glance.

I'll more than likely be updating this with a better menu. I'm not very satisfied with the current one, and I played around with some other ideas earlier.

The phone icon is for demo purposes only. It belongs to ~Rokey. The shopping cart icon is designed by Bartelme Design. iPhone icon by ~buoptip.

Hey i have a question about some of your art. particularly about your web designs, because you have really nice style and good talent for it. what programs do you use and what would you suggest for someone starting out in webdesign. Im really wanting to get into web design but i dont know where to start. any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I use Photoshop. Some people use Adobe InDesign for web interface design, but I find Photoshop to do the job. You just start by doing it, it's as simple as that. Pay attention to what makes a design, and focus on similarities between all designs, to learn all of the rules. CSS galleries are a great way to see design at its best. Check out [link] for an example. It's probably best that you focus on learning Photoshop first, which you can do by practicing the graphics aspect of design. Practice mimicking parts of other web design. You probably shouldn't post this online, this is just for experimenting and learning purposes.

This is the way I did it, and is the best way to do it. If you do it just by experimenting, you learn things a lot better.

sweet. ok i think i can figure out the photoshop part but what about turning it into a working website. can you do that with photoshop? or what else do i need to know? oh and i went to the CSS link and i didnt understand what it was. is it a site like Deviant Art with artist profiles? or something else?

ps. thanks for the reply

You content area is so smooth, I would work more on the top and bottom and smooth the overall effects so it's more clean. Nice work mate ;)

We're looking for a designer, but an interaction/UX designer to complete the team.

I retract my statement. If you like doing what you do, designing what you design, and not having high up corp execs downplay your work to fit contractual needs, stay where you are. There is no way you would ever see something like this produced in a company like Google, Yahoo, or AOL. No ad space, for one, haha.

Stay where you are and enjoy freelance while you're financially able to. :P

Well the thing is, it's not financially satisfying to be a freelancer. I'm not sure what I want to do at this point. I don't like the constant attention that freelance requires in order to keep a steady flow of cash coming in. I'm also afraid of committing myself to a company, and then not being to put out exactly when they need it. I'm no magician, you know.

I was actually interested in f-i.com. They've just posted that they're looking for designers, and they have some really incredible work. I may end up creating a mock design in a similar style to theirs, and see what they think.

You can go corporate and still be very creative, because it takes MORE effort to be creative when you're given barriers. You're challenged more because the guidelines are tighter, and sometimes it's a lot easier because you don't have to manage finances and meetings etc, just do design, which can be nice at times.

You can also keep doing the freelance on the side.

-------

and about this piece, I see a lot of corporate elements and the design wouldn't have to change much. The only thing I didn't like is that I imediately associated the site with apple because of the obvious undertone inspiration of grey buttons with large round corners and the iphone spread. I like the blue background, but don't like the side nav wrap around, it seems to me a little un-intuitive, and graphic intensive when you could play with the floating box idea a bit and present something a little but more realistic and less graphic intensive.

Overall this design is awesome though, I'd give it an 8 out of 10


-------

and obviously if you're web you're 10x more ready if you know xhtml + css I know too many HTML guys that do not code in standards.

--------
and I don't agree with blacklite graphics, it's the most un-corporate, and original designers that shine in the dull corporate design environments.
