Any graphic or web designers interested in helping me?
« on: August 23, 2016, 07:19:07 PM »
The landing page for Skullknight.NET is old. Very old. In fact, it's so old that it's entirely feasible there are members here who were born after it was coded by me in 2003.

I would love to give it a modern redesign, but my skills are very limited. I've done a mock-up in photoshop (which I won't share here, for fear of being mocked), but I would also love some input from anyone who is willing to share a few hours of their time in helping it look and feel great.

If you're interested, please send me a PM and we can chat! Thanks in advance.

I went on the landing page on my way to work this morning and realized it had changed! Wanted to give props for it and found this topic. Sorry I missed the topic last year.

Good work on the page, looks excellent with that cool image in the background. Love the way it looks on a phone too. For the old one, I'd have to maximize it to click on the forum button because of my fat/ butter fingers and even then I'd accidentally click on a different button sometimes.
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

Thanks! Yeah, that was me and Grail's design. However, I had to dumb it down a little to make it work on various screens, which was the entire purpose of the redesign.

Old Internet was the Best Internet...

I like the design of the front page, nice job.  :serpico:

Last but certainly not least email me at Walter@Skullknight.net if you have any troubles with logging in (password errors are abundant right now). I will fix everyone's in the order they were recieved. Oh yeah, and Paradiselost...just stay gone.

Who was Paradiselost?

Not as big an asshole as the guy writing the painfully bad and sophomoric Black Swordsman "summaries" that take longer to read than the manga, yeeesh. :farnese:

Just some loser.

You remember Paradiselost, but can you remember Drachenfels, or what about...




No idea why he got put on a banner (and I put him on it), but there was a lot of questionable decision-making for these milestone banners:







These are some gr8 joeks tho, so good I reused the Bone Knight joke.. twice (hope I'm not retroactively disqualified).

There's old site banners by Wally too:







I bet there's stuff here even he forgot, and this is just the things I feel comfortable posting. It's all come a long way since then. =)
