Extreme Makeover: Text Link Ads Edition

Yesterday, Patrick and the team at Text Link Ads quietly unveiled my newest creation. Given that I worked on the site for a solid month, it was extremely nice to finally see the work come together in a finished product. Without a doubt, this was the largest, most diverse site that I’ve worked on, and I’ve got a stylesheet 10 miles long to prove it!

It was an honor to even be considered for the job, and I’m extremely grateful for the chance to work with Text Link Ads on their new site. The crew over there is not only professional, but just flat out cool to boot.

As far as design stuff goes, I really tried to create a unique brand for TLA. I think the new site has a look and feel that definitely identify it as “soooo 2006,” and I hope that all you out there will agree that it’s got a progressive nature about it. Although I hate the term, I honestly believe that TLA now not only acts the part of “Web 2.0” but looks it as well.

As always, I’d appreciate any feedback you could provide, be it positive or negative. Oh, and one of these days I’ll actually construct a portfolio where information like this will ultimately reside, along with design notes that will be far more detailed and revealing than what you’ve just read.

Take the Next Step!

Chris … all past snarky fun aside, you’re a great desinger and I like what you’ve done.

I like the simplistic, big, bold colors that seem central to your work.

btw, what sort of prices are you asking for to design a WP theme – I know every job is unique but just a ballpark figure for a fairly basic design woud do.


ps: when the heck are you gonna indie virus me ;-)

Nicely done. It’s got your “feel” to it, but it’s still fairly unique.

Chris, it was a pleasure working with you on this project and we are getting great feedback from our users on the new design, thx again!

Damn fine work.

Can you get me a massive contract with them ? I need to sell some ads on the 4,980,000 pages we had viewed last year.

Seriously, you are getting even better and you were already great !

Great Work Chris!

It always feels good when a large project comes to an end with a success. The site looks great. I like the use of color and whitespace.
