Gemini Concepts Website (New and Improved)
« on: November 07, 2009, 12:12:13 PM »
After some very long discussions with a web designer, we've finally handled over the reigns of the site to Sensai Ross Greenberg, a martial arts instructor that has worked closely with NJjedi and is a HUGE Star Wars fan. 

He pains-takenly reformatted the entire site and threw in some pretty cool features, like a automated slide show on the home page and the gallery views on the saber pages.  Having the YouTube videos on the site in a "thumbnail" format is pretty nice too. 

He's still working on some content issues that got a little jumbled up in the lastest upload but those will be corrected soon.

Please stop by, take a look and tell us what you think.   ;)

Did he give you an xml file for it? Or is it just a flash file?

Usually xml files are pretty customizable. I would have to look at the code, but you should be able to add as many pictures to the slide show as you want.

Oh yes... we can. (or Ross can, rather)

In time, more will be added, without showing the whole website on one page  ;D .

Thanks, guys. 

I think all the content issues have been fixed.  Ross was able to load the Obi Parks we did for Falcon quicker than we had it posted here... so that's a good sign that the site will stay updated.   ;)

The site currently doesn't feature EVERY saber we've ever made... but it does show a good timeline and improvements we've made with every saber. At the same time, it showcases some of our best work with a variety of styles. 

Next up, since convention season is starting, we'll have a "store front" so people can directly purchase the Acolyte Series.  Shopping carts and Paypal links included, a one stop shop. These will be "ready to ship" sabers, no customizing... but we should have a pretty wide range of features, just like last year.

Looks awesome guys.  Kudos to your designer.  You have an excellent base from which to work from.

By the way, I couldn’t get the links for your different series (Acolyte, Sentinel, Salem, etc) to work on your Services and Build Log Topic.  You might consider moving it to this forum (and out of The Mining Colony).  It would make it easier for future customers, who may be unfamiliar with this website, to find information.  I am sure you will be adding descriptions of the defining features of each later.  I look forward to seeing the storefront and supporting your future work.   ;D

I'm liking the changes. Some nice effects and streamlined site. Love the slidehow on the main page as well!
