Home Forums CSS Please critique my design :) Re: Please critique my design :)


Hello, if I must. :p

I don’t like the gradient too much, make it a bit softer, less obvious that there is one. Furthermore, the borders on the menu items, try to make insets with CSS by doing a border-right, border-left with 1px solid #fff and a darker colour.

Also, the site lacks symmetry; the borders need to be perfectly aligned with the content (main content).

That’s about it; the gradient is the biggest turn off and ironically the most recurrent thing we did when we were new at designing; it’s the point of making the gradients hard. Mix those colors right and you shall see.
