    Hey Guys,

    I’ve been playing around with a little responsive design:

    http://notfilc.eu/oxweb/

    What do you feel about the general layout/colour scheme?

    Also struggling with a good style for that nav bar so if anyone has any suggestions that would be awesome.

    it seems to be based on Skeleton and I don’t know that much about it…how much have you changed it?

    # August 22, 2012 at 9:43 am

    Skeleton is just a css framework, there is no default style so all of that is custom. Skeleton is simply a grid so don’t worry too much about that.

    Then all I have to say is…..it’s pretty basic.

    Layout seems fine but that depends on what content will be required and the type of site it will support (corporate, personal, Small bus, whatever)

    Colours…it’s monochromatic at the moment (basically)…again, the content/site type will determine whether it’s appropriate.

    It’s going to be a corporate type site – any suggestions for possible places to add colour or how to style the links is appreciated.

    My suggestion would be to look at some of the templates that are out there for corporate sites and think in those terms.

    Every client’s requirements are going to be different, of course, but for the most part, the corporates (I can tell you) all want much the same.

    The colours, I would assume would be driven by the palette provided by the client..

    This isn’t for any client at the moment, and probably will never be. It’s simply some messing around/testing, so any further opinions/suggestions are appreciated.

    Any other comments?

    I would highly suggest when your site is at mobile device width your menu turn into a dropdown (like a select dropdown) it is a more accessible and it simplifies the design.

    Thanks, was thinking of implementing that. Read an interesting article last week about the best way to symbolise that sort of menu, seems as though three horizontal lines is becoming the standard.
