A website design is a piece of art as well, yeah? Designed with an equal balance of aesthetics and functionality.

Perhaps it may be the most interactive two dimensional pieces of art out there. =]

This is the new Technguild site layout, designed mainly by yours truly. It was based off an existing template I saw on the joomlasphere, so the structure was not made from scratch, I just skinned it according to the design we had in mind.

It uses a lot of new code implementation such as mootools to give it a flash-like feel as well as some clever css and png hacks to achieve the transparent hologram look. To get the full feel of it, I highly recommend that you see it live.

I definitely learned a lot from this project. Lots of new skills I shall put to use as I continue to delve into web design.

I hope you enjoy! =]

I'd love to see a version of this available as a WP theme. Any chance? (especially since it looks like the site has changed looks again)

This looks awfully familiar to me.

Am I suffering from mass amounts of dejavu? Or I'm just being paranoid?
It looks really cool and I really like the background. It would be cool if you use your design for a Windowsblinds skin.
That looks really nice. Though the graphics are intense, the general layout is still clean and easy to navigate which makes it a real nice plus. You did good on that. Of course the majority of it is in my favourite color so I am attracted to it all like a magnet. XD I like the overall feel it gives, its like your monitor is being split into several screen around you. Very techy like. Nice job.

I take a look, really nice design. :)

Unfortunatly, I can't see everything you make on right and left.

I think I fell in love with your new layout, Chem. It´s undeniably gorgeous, and having that outer space aspect (such as the planet below) gives it a whole extra leap of points. Heh, even that space-y background behind makes me think of Super Mario Galaxy for a brief instant.

I think I don´t have anything to say regarding things to fix and whatnot, I just think it looks wonderful, dreamy, pretty much the ideal skin for anyone who loves technology. In short, awesome job there! :thumbsup: :+fav:
