…one essential thing is missing. A cooming soon page should inform the user of what he or she can expect.
…the pink at the bottom is too gross. Particularly on a big screen (1600+). I think you should change it to something like #FC7A9C and apply some kind of distortion to weaken it’s effect further. Otherwise the users view will directly go down to the empty area. As of the distortion you could use this image or of course create something that you think fits.
Again, I must admit, I agree with all of your suggestions.
I would have liked/had envisioned a centered layout on the screen (horizontally as well as vertically), thus eliminating the pink lower portion and need for a pattern background. I must confess that failing to do this is simply laziness, and something I should not permit myself when designing, even if it is for my own projects.
Also, a mention of things to come is also a good idea, as I myself have stumbled upon a "coming soon" page which such a reference and bookmarked in hopes of a future visit. Thanks again for visiting & sharing your keen web design insight with me
It is a pain to design with all that blogger bullshit mark-up—I know of it! The easiest way would be to use a completely different mark-up for the cooming soon page and exchange it later. If I have a look at the current source ... gosh!
You welcome, I enjoy the exchange a lot here at dA.
And you have no idea how much crap I have removed. Blogger is so embarrassing. I think I use it in a subconscious masochistic effort to destroy any chance I have at becoming really success in designing. Or maybe I am just a really big chicken. XD
I too enjoy the exchange here on dA, that being of of the main reasons it is one of my most favorite social networks.
