A while back I posted two ideas of possible new layouts for penguinpedia.com - I didn't like them, and instead opted to create something more along the lines of my (what was current) layout.

Anyways, I took some time and finally created something I like! Please check out the new version of penguinpedia.com and let me know what you think. Not all links are working yet, so be patient.

http://www.penguinpedia.com

On a side note: I am looking for a couple people who would like to join the Penguinpedia staff. I would love to have a PHP developer on hand, as well as someone who can cut up and code my photoshop mockups from time to time. I would of course pay you to do this, so if you are interested please send me a PM.

Its cool,
but the 'penguinpedia'
in the top right logo bit
looks a bit jagged around the edges.

I would like it better if the two top side curves matched. It looks unbalanced to me.

I disagree with browncat. I think it's much more interesting with the top curves not matching.

Thanks everyone :)

Jak: The logo is intended to look that way. Antialiasing is not present on any of the text on the website. It is an effect I like to use.

Browncat: As jgaylor mentioned, the lack of balance between the corner and the curve makes the site a little more interesting. The large curve is also supposed to emulate the curve in the blue/green of the logo, as I am trying to create a sense of flow between the two.

Yeah, I could tell the logo pixelation was intentional as well.

That works with the menu but not really with the logo I don't feel.

Contrast idea is good and large curve is nice. I think the upper left does not look right. I think if you put a right angle there the contrast would be better.

Regarding the "penguinpedia logo," I feel that a shaper image is in fact neccesary. I can understand the pixelated effect commonly used for headers and logos but the logo is in a medium of sharp and pixelated; thin and sorta edgy.

I don't think its enough exaggeration to where one could defind it as style. Whenever I see anything less smoother whether I'm viewing sites or making them, I automatically get that unprofessional feeling of newbish design.

Maybe its just me. www.pixelbobby.com/v7 (under construction)

Pixelbobby... that new version your working is very slick. I was actually doing something similar not too long ago (comparable only to your home page).

Great Stuff!

Thanks much for the kind words Gandalf, thats the stuff that keeps me motivated enough to continue with my style of design and actually *finish* my portfolios. LOL :) **cheers**

Actually I am pretty good with php took it up a year or two ago, have coded a few projects. I kinda have looked around here because i love graphic design, I'm just not that good at it. But i would help you with a php backend to your site. I dunno about just doing it all, but you if you need anything im almost a walking php manual :o.
