Hey guys,

I've got a few spare minutes so I wanted to ask for some advice. As some of you may know I'm studying International Game & Architecture Design. This means that in a few years when I'll graduate I'm supposed to like, work. Of course getting work is easier if you have a good resume and webpresence. A few days ago I bought a domainname that I thought was totally awesome (arrowtotheknee.nl) and started working on a design for my personal website, which I'll use to put stuff that I make online so people can look at my work and think "Hey, we want to hire this guy!". Now I've never done something like that before, so I was wondering if anybody had advice on how to make it look professional and fun at the same time.

Google design blogs and look to see if they have anything on well designed web sites. Here's one Or simply google "well designed web sites" to look at examples.

Clean and simple is a good look, but when you're marketing yourself for desingy type jobs, it needs to have a little twist to it. Research places you want to work for, look at their web sites and use those for inspiration (don't copy, but be inspired).

This is a great book, anyone thinking of designing a web page should read. I suggest you take a look.

Thanks Lo, I'll give those a go. Might even be able to get that book!
