    Just finished a new site

    The homepage needs some more content, a blog will be added, and more content will be added to each page. But right now I’m focusing on the header…

    I like having a simple, white, clean header. However, I think the menu items need to be kicked up a notch. Any suggestions?


    What about adding som background-color when hovering the menu-items?


    A background-color …. mmm, maybe something that rhymes with the logo line-style like a border would be a better fit:

    .menu li a {
    transition: all 0.3s ease;
    display: inline-block;
    color: #444444;
    font-weight: 400;
    font-size: 1em;
    padding: 15px 0;
    border-top: 4px solid transparent;
    text-decoration: none;
    .menu li a:hover {
    color: #964800;
    border-top: 5px solid #cf7019;

    Or reuse that striped separator:

    .menu li a {
     background: url(img/separator.png) center 50px repeat-x;
    .menu li a:hover {
     background-position: center bottom;
