I don't get MySpace.
I get the concept of social networking. I do. What I don't get is the craptastic layouts. I mean some of these are really bad. transparency used incorrectly to the point that the text is almost invisible, super wide layouts, 30 videos from youtube all loading at once.
So, I've started building layouts for myspace. This was a request from my 16 year old son. We started working on them together, but he's 16 and has the attention span of a gnat.
So, what would you like to see in a myspace layout? I need suggestions. I'm posting about 20 designs tonight. once they are available I'll post a link. Feel free to rip me to shreds. All my layouts are free of course.
Mods if this post violates board policy, feel free to remove it. I really am just looking for feedback.
Great post, actually. My wife and I have a MySpace page for our songwriting and what I'd like is something that's cool and creative but "clean." Something music related without being "hip hop", "emo" or "booty-oriented." It seems every freaking MySpace layout has animated GIFs, backgrounds that obscure text and garish colors. People also seem to like to post images that make you scroll horizontally, I HATE THAT!
I'd love to see the designs, myself.
Anyhow, I'd love to see the designs.
