Impress Lab - is this an ImpressCMS site?

Fantastic looking site, but source doesn't look like ImpressCMS. The ImpressCMS page does promote a site built on ICMS - http://www.impresslab.com/website/ImpressCMS.

There is also a new 'Impress Shop' promised for delivery this month - http://impresslab.com/website/ecommerce

Anybody know anything about this site?

Re: Featured site news category

1 - Combine the categories, yes.

2 - Images manager, perhaps.

3 - Partners: i vote for showcase.

Re: Featured site news category

We have a category (2 actually) for iCMS-based sites - ImpressCMS Sites Spotlight (under ImpressCMS Community News) and the second is a main-level category called 'They Use ImpressCMS!' I'm not sure why we ended up with 2, but we have articles in both. We should first agree on which to keep and move the other's articles into that category.

I'm OK with the ImageManager category, too. SmartSection does allow the upload of an image to set as the main image for the article, but those images are not available for placement within the article body.

Coupled with this, many of the sites that have posted articles have not been added a Partners listing, where, again, it appears we have 2 possible categories - Community Sites and Site Showcase. For simplicity and consistency, let's agree on one and title it to match the news category.

Here is an opportunity to reuse some of the screenshots and images, but the logo image is a separate upload (like the article image in SmartSection).

Yet another approach would be a gallery of sites, where thumbnails of many sites would be visible on a page, searchable by keywords, tags, categories, location, ...

Other thoughts?

Featured site news category

I think it's time for us to show what we're doing with iCMS. Our own success stories using iCMS for our sites, have some articles about happy users and all that.

It could be done as a new Smartsection category, then create a new images category so that registered users can upload small screenshots (200x200px should be OK) of their sites and make the article have a better look.

What about this? Can we show the world our ass-kicker sites?

Re: Help me choose a design

Finally I did the trick, accepted my criteria (i'm a sort of Parker lewis, I have horrible shirts and I can't lose). Now the site is open to the public (, although there's some work to do yet. I'm not too happy with the left block design, and some promotional stuff (the congress has public sponsors) must be added in the right column.

The ego of the public sponsors is incredibly big.

If IE7 users could check the site, it would be very much appreciated.

Re: Help me choose a design

I have customers like this as well sometimes... you have my sympathy!

Topic


Re: Help me choose a design

Thanks Giba.

News on this subject. The customer talks about some leaflets that are being designed by them (not by pro, but by them themselves!!!) and I'm supposed to consider their design and be consistent with this.

WTF!!!

More on this later.

Re: Help me choose a design

Option 1, but not very different version 2.

Re: Help me choose a design

Thanks, Mr. Theme. This is the plan:

1 - Fixed with for 1024 px wide monitors. People is starting to buy 19, 21 and even 27 inches monitors, so liquid layout would be too big for them. As you probably know, IE6 ignores CSS max-width and min-width (it also ignores bottom, opacity, position: fixed and many others, you know), and I don't want to use a javascript hack to fix it.

(Maybe I should reconsider the javascript solution, but it sounds bad to me)

The site will only be functional until the congress + six months., that is, end of 2009.

2 - The rubik is actually my own, photographed. Perhaps I illuminated it too much, that's why it looks boring. But it must be half-resolved, as Synaesthesia is a half-resolved subject. The customer liked idea of a half-resolved cube as metaphor of the synaesthesia. I'd like to show it a bit more resolved, but I couldn't solve it more than this, and I was losing my patience (i know there are methods, but where's the fun if you use them?)

BTW, if you search Google for synaesthesia, you'll find lots of horrible designs spinning around multi-colored letters, the n. 1 Synaesthesia cliché. I wanted to avoid that while using colors.

3 - The right column will contain latest news (automatically driven by News block) and a random partner. The sponsors are a tricky problem, as most of them are public and want to appear before this or this other for political reasons, not related to the amount of money given to the congress. now that they are not listening: they totally suck.

I would go with #1 with the new cube in the top left.

You really didn't say whether you wanted this to be a fixed width deign or not, but if you want it to be scalable the eyes are going to be invasive. I love the splatter (c4d?) graphic behind the company name, a very nice touch though I think I would enjoy it more if it was not overlapping the black at the top.

Anyway, if you dropped the eyes you could easily make this thing flex nicely.

As far as your cube, it s a bit flat for my taste, so I have attached a few from my collection. 1 solved (which may actually go better with the original logo?), and 1 not solved.

Great design otherwise. I would be interested to see what you have in mind for your right column and that gradient over there. Can't wait to see the finished product.
