my favorite voice-over websites! – doug turkel

Yes Doug is a long-time friend of mine but that’s not why he’s leading off this series. In fact, he doesn’t know I’m writing about his web site.

Well, I suppose he does now.

But look at that one picture of his web site and see if you can’t pretty much find out everything you need to know about Doug and his amazing voice-over work in about 3 seconds.

Want an easily accessible demo? Check!

Need a killer testimonial (or six)? Check!

Branding upfront? Done (well done)!

Got a phone number you can link to if you’re on a cell? Got it!

Blog link? Of course

Simplicity is the key. It is executed masterfully. I hate him for that. 😉

What is also annoying about Doug is that this is the SECOND amazing web design he’s pulled off. I don’t have a picture of his old site which was done in a brilliant, extreme close-up, comic book design; it really was terrific.

Point of fact, though: he outright stole from me the red, black, gray and white color motif…as did every other web site that uses the red, black, gray and white color motif. Rat bastards, all of y’all.

It was actually this redesign that made me realize that my old site design (which I still arrogantly love) did need to be brought up to speed with the changing technological world we live in. Doug cost me alot of money.

Look at the use of fonts on this site…spectacular and the buttons are awesome. It’s causing me, upon further reflection, to think about tweaking my site on one small item. So Doug will cost me even more money.

Upon even further reflection, you should only look at this site for ideas if you have enough money in the bank.

You’ll have to excuse me now as I have to go sell one of my kidneys on ebay.

  1. Yup, I certainly DO know about it now…and THANKS!

    Thanks for the kind words, and thanks for taking the time to share such a nice review of my site.

    Simplicity (among a couple of other things) was certainly at the top of my list when this redesign started. For anyone else who’s going through the same process, I highly recommend being VERY picky about who you choose to do the work, and to spend TONS of time planning and writing rather than jumping right to the design phase.

    And to be fair, while you might think that I stole your red, black, gray and white color motif, if you look closely, you’ll see that mine is actually black, white gray and red. ; )

  2. Doug is right….content is key.

    But small brains like me like the pretty colors and pictures!!! 😉

    Best always,
