So, first post and all that… Thought I’d get some feedback on a work-in-progess, near complete, site i’m getting the chance to do the entire design and development for.
Anyway, the mockup page is located here: http://www.parkourgenerations.com/pkuk
Oh, loving CSS-Tricks too. :) Already got to learn a ton of new techniques through this site, so thanks!
Typography, add a bit of line height 1.5em looks better. Might even suggest Justifying it to give a solid block look, but I think thats more a taste thing :)
the footer menu – its just kinda sitting there. with a scrolling site do you think you need it? Because the site is only short most people are going to be able to see the top menu…
And lastly – the top image, is awesome, if not just a tad too big I feel… it just having a scrolling site, kinda defeats the point if I have to scroll my browser to see the content coz the top image is too big.
Looks great if I F11 and go full screen :)
I would say thats my only thoughts, other than it looks cool :D – you using scrollTo?
Cool, thanks. I hadn’t considered the justifying and line height, but i’m all for good white-space. I’ll see what difference it makes.
For the bottom menu you’re right. I think I subconciously just added it in to fill in the space, but maybe it can be used a bit better. It’s just a holding page for the moment and more content will be added as-and-when so I’m sure I’ll get something to use.
I’ll try the top image a little thinner also, see what it looks like. No harm in experimenting.
Oh, and yes, I’m using JQuery lite, ScrollTo & localscroll… I love it when something so light and easy makes a big impact. :) Especially when you can control it from CSS.
Wow! I really like this site, and the whole navigational thing you got going on. The only thing I can suggest is a gradient – from dark to a lighter grey, as a background image – just to give the design a bit of pzaz.
