i have a new design here
which i am trying to make look more professional looking, and was wondering what people would consider changing/adding/removing to make this happen. i do want to make the navigation list more exciting, but struggling for ideas at the moment.

Make up some fictitious brief that plays with your skills and execute it. There is nothing like a good challenge to play with our strengths…. :mrgreen:
Just my 2 cents.July 1, 2008 at 11:42 am #48280KevinChappellMember
It looks like it will be a fairly basic site without too much content. You could use ajax to swap the content with a cool fade or slide effect?
I would do something with the header, I thought EPR was a lawncare service at first (looks like grass). Also its like a big block all by itself while the rest of the site is very open and free flowing. Just looks strangely out of place.July 2, 2008 at 5:30 am #48301koewnetMember
Something odd about the navigational links too. Don’t know, but I think it’s the colour combination of green and blue. Also, I’d enjoyed it more if you could get the content a tad up.July 2, 2008 at 7:19 pm #48323chazzwickMember
wow, thanks for all your comments. i agree, the website really didnt look right did it. ive tried to take your advice and heres what ive come up with:
the only problem is with the footer, im trying to get it to stretch all the way along. ill figure it out eventually.July 3, 2008 at 5:54 pm #48340KevinChappellMember
Take the footer outside the 780px wide pagewrap and you should be golden.
780px may be a little narrow now a days but the design looks way better.July 3, 2008 at 7:03 pm #48346iamawMember"chazzwick" wrote:wow, thanks for all your comments. i agree, the website really didnt look right did it. ive tried to take your advice and heres what ive come up with:

Much better than the original.
Make your navigation a bit more noticeable though. At first I didnt even realize that they were links until I hovered over them.July 3, 2008 at 9:27 pm #48347nyshalynnMember
Add the color brown hopefully to the links area or it’s highlighter.
finally ad some css opacity tricks to the text or surrounding photos :geek:
