MISSION BACKUP EARTH > Website makeover > Horizontal "featured images" episodes list
Since a while I am considering to redesign our website: www.missionbackupearth.com Could be going in this direction: http://badguyfilms.com/hitman101/#11 This task is open for general discussions about how to present the series in the best way. Technically the website is now done as a wordpress blog and I prefer to keep it that way in order to be able to add new content by myself. In addition I think we need another poster. I like the old one, but some of the Actors shown are no longer in the series. So the best would be if we get a movie poster without actors. Something simple and easy with black space, a spaceship an exoplanet or something like that. Any feedback, ideas, comments, welcome.

I have not bothered reproducing all of your settings (and I cannot really do that on a free account) but the horizontal menu with a list of episodes should be very possible/easy to achieve with little tweaks of your current design!

Example here:

And these are the covers I edited for each episode, in a format that fits the layout so that the thumbnail displays the episode number (+ source psd file):

Very gladly! But can I have that graphics pack? I would at least need a good quality file with the production and awards logos! You can send them via mail. Will pm you my address. ;)

I agree with Hannu, the first one is really good. Please continue and lets find a way to implement that in wordpress. Great job!!!

Should be also the easiest to implement, since it would be complemented by some simple, full-black backtround when scrolling down.... The tricky/difficult bit will lay in setting it up so that moon's position is "fixed" in relation to the banner with the logo, so the two of them nicely "complete each other". If you guys like the idea, I can carry on making experiments in this direction with the logo when I have a .png file of it? :)

These look great! There's something that I really like about the upside down feeling in the first one.

MISSION BACKUP EARTH > Website makeover > My humble opinion :P
by: Kalle Max Hofmann

to be honest, I think there's (almost) nothing wrong with the old site and that Hitman site is really no improvement. To me personally, I think it looks a bit annoying, more like a fake ringtone site that is looking to rip your credit card data ;P I think the work of totally re-doing the site is better spent elsewhere. So what I would do instead is: - update the MBE banner with one that is about half that height. Lose the credit block & the actors, increase the contrast in the logo and make it more shiny. ADD LENS FLARE!!! ;) - Lose the white lines saying "Mission Backup Earth - Space Science Fiction Series" at the top, as this is totally redundant and looks cheap - change the star background to something better - preferably black or a subtle gradient from black to dark blue. Or, if you must, one of those Hi-Rez NASA images with much smaller stars. The one you have now looks like some Christmas artwork ^_^ The rest is perfectly alright! :D

hee hee I thought new site looked pretty good with a plain black background... BUT THEN that horrible red thing was done loading :P Really, I would stick to the old designer's rule "keep it simple". The new logo is an improvement, but it's still very high. As I said, I think it would be better if it had a format similar to the "hitman 101" logo on their site. After all, people coming to the site already know where they went. They don't need a big ass logo to tell them, it only distracts from the information. At least in my opinion ;)
