Ok so as some of you may or may not know im now a student of web design. I decided to enrol on a certificate in Web Design applications course through the open university. As a huge fan of the web, and graphic design, i decided its my time to learn how to design webs properly and make the most of my artistic flair smile.gif

Im already pretty nifty with designing graphics on photoshop so im now learning how to code corretly and also what makes for a good design. For an assignment I have to pick an example of a good website and list what makes it good.

When browsing the gmc home page yesterday I realised that it meets ALL of the criteria layed out for good design. So I thought I would share with you what I have come up with so far smile.gif



So congrats too whoever codes gmc wink.gif laugh.gif Im guessing Henrik and kris ?

By the way, I never realised how hard it is to practice guitar everyday for my target of 3 hours, study for a degree level course, and study for a music theory exam, oh yeah and go to work ! blink.gif


regards

I'd like to make a suggestion if I could.

Either [A] make the new "GMC Community" image square to the page (my preference)
or [B] make it slope at the same angle as the GuitarMasterClass.net text in the main header image.

Other than that, the front page looks great. I'm impressed with how much this site has grown and improved since I joined in September.

Your welcome. I have discussed this website on my student forum and they agree it fits all the requirments of a well devopled website. Infact, as a potential web / graphic designer I can gain alot of inspiration from from watching GMC develop!

Keep up the good work everyone smile.gif

I know it is a long shot, but GMC can also stand for a Global Music Community. Times change, so as goals, you couldn't know that the site is gonna be like this when you first started it right? So with the help of us, the members and you - the crew, we can make this site a global music community in the years to come. What do you say Kris. Is this so far from the truth? I think not smile.gif

GMC RULEZZ! smile.gif
