    Please critique my wip website?

    This site is meant to be minimalistic and and simple while using some CSS3.

    I’m going to use this site to display my upcoming game. It is still a work in progress, so I’m very interested in knowing what others think about it.

    There’s a few CSS3 tricks you cannot see. For instance, when the browser loads, the navigation will light up and “wave” across. Also, each link in the navigation is a different color. I wanted to use 3 colors for this site.
    (Don’t have a live site yet.. Working on it offline.)

    Personally, I think the noise is a little too much…It would be way nicer if you made the base layout in pure CSS instead of having to use images (which is what will have to happen…) it will be much cleaner in my opinion and cut http requests down a bit. Can’t wait to see it live.

    So would you prefer I remove all of the noise and replace the headers with a solid color (or a gradient?)

    Anything else you feel like could be added? (other than a logo of course.)

    I’m with kgscott on this one. I really like the design, but the noise makes it a little bit harder on the eyes. Other than that, I think it’s a really cool idea. Let us know when it’s done so we can see it!

    What I really want to know is if you guys like no noise or just a little bit of noise and if the headers should just be solid colors. Please let me know.

    What idea do you think was cool?

    # June 28, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    I feel like no noise would look a lot better.

    I like:
    The Colors/Bottom Border Colors
    Font Choices

    I might change:
    A little less top/bottom padding on the nav
    Maybe a little bit more top/bottom padding on the sub-headers
    Little more space above your footer text after the body.

    Other than those small things, good work!

    What should be background be then?

    How do you feel about a different color scheme for every new page? (Red, Green, Blue) (It is a small site with only 3 pages so it shouldn’t be too crazy)

    # June 28, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    I actually like the gray that you already have for the background, just without the noise. As for a different color scheme, you can always go that route, but I feel it’d be more confusing than keeping it the same throughout all the pages.

    Really? Hm.. Well, here’s it without any noise. Better/Worse?

    # June 28, 2012 at 2:57 pm

    Hm, maybe some sort of simple design would be nice on the background (Something like the background here on CSSTricks). And maybe try and define the content area with a simple border or shadow might help a little bit. Other than that, I think it will look pretty good once it has content on it.

    # June 28, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    I had a version with rounded borders and shadows.. Here we go. Better/Worse?

    # June 28, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    I kinda liked the squared look more, however I do like the white background/drop shadows that you have in that version. Maybe that but squared?

    # June 28, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    That seems out of place though, rounded with squared seems weird.

    # June 28, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    Oh my bad, I meant keep it all squared, not just the body.
