I found the new and neat website of Lila Design Aviation via http://www.liladesign.com. What do you think about it?

It's pretty hard to "hover" when the site does not fit onto the one page & you can't view the designs under Showcases.

We have add the A319 in easyJet colours. Look at the home page of http://www.liladesign.com and hover over the green sign "announcement".

Good site, except the "hovering" is a pain in the @$$.

Most impressive and the hover function is intriguing and very good.

Fantastic. I will now explore the rest of the site.

Nice professional looking site. Nice layout and web design. But feel it lacks content. All the pages just seem to have text.

Maybe you could have a page on possible future airline contracts.

Excellent.

Complicated if you don't read the instructions and hover, and quite slow on a 56k modem but it's well worth the wait.

The second Northwest and first Cyprus Airways liveries are great.

The Impressions by Fine Art section is also very nice... as is Civil Aircraft Illustrations.

Info Graphics also is very impressive.

Whoever created the website is very talented.

Kudos.

Was the website produced in ColdFusion, I wonder?

cold fusion has nothing to with the graphical display...its a scripting language originally developed by Allaire (now owned by Macromedia). It allows for dynamic content. It is similar to PHP (what this site uses i think), ASP, JSP etc. however some are more advanced than others. CF works great with databases and uses tags instead of the more "programming-type" syntax...this site has a great designer who can work with graphics well and knows his javascript...though javascript is a client side feature. Anyone with enough knowledge of what they were doing could do this on their computer without a server (not putting down the design, it's great!) however you dont need a server like ColdFusion does...anyways...nothing to do with aviation but just clarifying. (you may be able to produce images in CF e.g. graphs, but that is irrelevant...)

Lila Design Aviation's website is an in-house production. The original pages, texts and aircraft 3-view illustrations were produced in Adobe Illustrator 9.

The seperate pages were saved as psd.files, manipulated in Adobe Photoshop 6, transformed and manipulated to/in Image Ready 3 (that's a simple website building programm within Adobe Photoshop 6). From Image Ready 3 all documents were saved as html.files and images.

We are still studying Adobe GoLive to create a smoother and easier website.

MIA777, thanks for that explanation - our updated website is being produced in CF, and the beta version has a lot of similar features to those on the Lila site.

AirOrange - very nice site, though when first opening the pulldown graphics some of the frames take longer to load than others, leading to a rather disconcerting effect! Has anyone else noticed that?

I take it you strongly recommend Adobe products then?  Big grin

Suggestion from a professional:
Try Macromedia Dreamweaver, too.

Nice website but the index.html looks a bit dark.
Maybe you shold consider brighter colors.

Luchtzak: It's not the size of your monitor that makes a difference, but rather the resolution you run it at.

MIA777: With the pages having extensions of .html, that tells you that it doesn't run using PHP.

AirOrange: I've used GoLive, and I don't recommend it... it's very "messy" when it comes to the code... it inserts randon line breaks in your code, and spaces it all out... very messy. If you don't want to take the truely professional side of coding my hand, then I'd recommend DreamweaverMX over GoLive any day. Dreamweaver has many more features as well. You say you recommend the Adobe software, we use the entire Macromedia line, and are very pleased with it. If you are seriously looking in to purchasing some software, I'd recommend the studio MX package that has all of the software in a bundle. http://www.macromedia.com for more information.

Dreamweaver? Thank you for the advice! We'll study this alternative too.
