first draft of the site: https://polar-sea-2752.herokuapp.com/

besides needing to preload images so they aren't sticky, the bones of the functionality is there.

Questions paddy.

  • navigation, we don't really know what to do there so we put in some dude fingers. Any ideas?
  • should the pages fade in too or you can just navigate them only? The reason we aren't fading in the text is because we don't really know how long it takes people to read it .... but I am not sure.
Also, we need to style text and get it a bit more polished, but anyway, first draft

Yo, I would say it's not a business yet. We don't have any customers, so fuck that
First draft looks good. Surprised the image looks ok. I thought it'd be a pixelly mess. The dude fingers are deffo on the right track, people need to go through the text as it suits them I suppose. Maybe we could do it with those nice grey ball things that stay in the same lower centre part of the page..?

I know I sent that before but that's what I'm thinking in terms of navigation

Also, can we throw the logo under all the text..? like this?

Martin O'Grady
@grady-lad
Nov 09 2014 21:26
maybe could whip it up in css
Yeah we were gonna do that but we didn't have the images for it
waddhuiy
@waddhuiy
Nov 09 2014 21:27
I deffo sent on the logo no??
Fuck

Lastly, what do you mean by styling the text? Some more distinct fonts maybe? Or some colours on the fonts could work either...
Good job though lads. As a first draft and just a simple communication tool I think it's fairly cool.

Oh, if you go into the 'transparent' folder in the 'landing page assets', then there is two PNGs of the logos, unless I completely fucked up (highly probable). Let me know :shipit:
all we have is the wherewallie blue logo without the text under it, can you send that on? At least, I can't find it
and will the logo only be visible on that slide under the text?
ok, well slap in that navigation
Martin O'Grady
@grady-lad
Nov 09 2014 21:37
so are we sticking with fingers?
waddhuiy
@waddhuiy
Nov 09 2014 21:37

I'll get that to you now.

I'd say try and have the logo under all the slides, as a constant like..? Either that or centre the slides but I', sure that's easier said than done...

what do you think of the hands paddy are they gack or should we d the other navbar
we could have it under them all and have the logo at a small size/

If possible try and use the weird ball things as navigation. I can't think of a site that uses them but do you know the ones I'm on about..?
Im down for weird balls

waddhuiy
@waddhuiy
Nov 09 2014 21:41
Martin, I'm sure at this stage your shit is 90% milk so it'd make no diff at all
Try it out
Something needs to flesh out the bottom of the page if the logo doesn't work though, it's too bare
My fault though, soz lads

ok, I like the logo down there
waddhuiy
@waddhuiy
Nov 09 2014 22:12
OK
Is it possible to make it fade in after the wallie animation thing. Like 1, 2, 3, Logo fade in, text fade in; and then have it remain there after that?
And maybe a bit smaller
nah, I don't mind nitpicking this into eternity
sounds good
waddhuiy
@waddhuiy
Nov 09 2014 22:18
Cool man

I am gonna go skate now
