    reminds me of a client website brief I got recently.

    It was about as illuminating.

    If you are after sensible feedback, I might suggest you at least do a photoshop mock up, and let us have a look, otherwise it is just our speculation on what you meant. :)

    It's rather rough. :p

    Also, I agree with Dragonfly... I don't really know if this will work.

    Is that someone's house at the bottom-left corner?

    Okay, seriously, it's the sort of thing that means something to you because you've got a mental picture to go with it - you know roughly how you want it to look - whereas we don't have that, and your rough sketch is a bit too rough for us to visualise what you intend.

    Good idea to sketch it out though as it helps you to organise your thoughts/ideas and can save time moving it all around in software afterwards (not always as easy as you'd imagine!).

    Flippancy aside, a neater drawing and a description of what you're trying to achieve might lead to better feedback.

    Shaun :D

    See the whole photoshop; I'd rather do it out on paper. Reason being is i can see how it looks first and see if i have enough stuff to fill the site. Plus I'd hate it admit it but I'm not good at photoshop; Plus I'd rather not spend the time doing a mock up if I may change things.

    Isn't that the point of a mock-up?

    I do mine with paper and pencil first, just to get a general idea (I've been using my tablet more now though), then I do the photoshop mockup.

    I tend to get sidetracked and forget what I was doing or what I want to do if I go straight to photoshop :p.

    Well that's about as rough of a draft as I've ever seen, hard to make out everything on the page, you must be a doctor.

    Why would you necro a topic that is over a year old, about just a rough concept of a style that obviously wasn't finished?
