Redesign of my 80s/90s nostalgia site

  • # March 27, 2009 at 9:03 am

    Hey All,

    When I first got into web design a couple years ago I designed a blog for my obsession with old cartoons and toys from the 80s and 90s, called Saturday Morning Central.

    I abandonded it a couple times but just relaunched it and designed it in WordPress.

    I’m still tweaking it a lot, but I’d love to have some feedback!

    I really like the structure and design. My only problem would be the pink/blue color scheme. I don’t think it particularly works with the theme, though that could just be me.

    Good job.

    Thanks, Doc!

    Yeah the color scheme was something I’ve used for it since it started, I think it was inspired by all the bright colors of stuff in the 90s like trapper keepers.

    Old habits die hard I guess.

    Yea, I was trying to remember something from my childhood that looked like that, but found it a little difficult so I thought I’d bring it up.

    The closest I got would probably be:

    I like the design and the color scheme, but I’m not a huge fan of the typography. Century Gothic looks weird.

    I think this site is really nice! My only suggestion would be to change the roll-over effect on the menu, I would recommend changing the background of the text to blue on roll-over, then back to pink when on-blue.

    Overall I think it is a really nice site!

    Thanks guys.

    I changed the body text, I’m not sure why I had it set to Century Gothic. And thanks Tom, I might try that. I’ve got a similar site I’m going to make another post about too, called Animation on Blu-ray.
