The NEW GH Website is LIVE!

Post by MayorOfLongview » Sun Mar 27, 2005 6:05 pm

Need I say more?
Thanks much to Ed from Step Seven for many days and nights of hard work. Thanks also to Chris from Power Pig for excellent design. Thanks also to Julie Babb for her efforts. And a big thanks to Phil for his years of dedication.
Hope you all enjoy the new site! We want to know what you think, so please post your comments here.

Dude!!!! Awesome!!!! I like orange. :)

(Scary thing is, I randomly decided at about 5:07 to check it out, and then I come to the forum to find you had just made a post about it at 5:05!!! Weird!! So I guess I'm first to be awed by it!!)

Roger Dean Cover Art - looks nice!!!!

Just a note- clear your cache in your browser or you will probably wind up with the old site's start page (now broken).

Oooohhh nice!!! :D :D

I like the logo A LOT! It's probably one of the best Dean logos I've seen and it's even up there with the mighty Yes icon :shock: :) It has the look of spun glass (which I'd imagine is entirely on purpose). Just fab!

The website's cool also so kudos to the designer(s) :cheers:

I've signed up for the updates and my Judge Dredd/Judge Death wallpaper is now history :wink:

WORLD DOMINATION AWAITS...or something...

*Sound of jaw dropping*

A little bird told me about the Roger Dean connection, but holy schnikeys THIS rox. I am busily counting pennies so I can save to buy all sortsa Glass Hammer swag. T-shirts, posters, lunch boxes, throw rugs...you name it. I'm in. I need a complete set.

Seriously, the new look on the site is great. It takes the band to the next level (and whets my appetite for the upcoming project). I am so excited about the new release (and seeing the band live in November in Nashville).

Last year I drew up some sketches of a new Glass Hammer logo 'cause I felt a "definitive" logo was something the band needed. (NOT implying that I was the one to do it HOHO!) I drew a buncha stuff that was very Roger-Deanesque (on purpose). I'll have to forward those on sometime! Of course, they pale in comparison to the "real thing" by Dean. Man, this is good stuff. And it is gonna look great on my new Glass Hammer t-shirt, hoodie, key chain, alarm clock, and bottle opener!

We Glass Hammerheads have a lot to look forward to this year! Yay!

We're planning to update the site more frequently than in the past. All manner of surprises are in store. In fact, there's a GH album coming out sooner than "The Inconsolable Secret" and you'll hear more about it within the next 2 weeks I hope. Its something special just for iTunes.

This new look is cool! 8) And very clear! I like it!

The forum will change too very soon. I have to adapt the logo and the colors. It won't be easy!

Hm... I wonder whether it will match with #00502d? I might have to change my color prematurely... ;)
