Hello. I’m working a redesign for my website and I’m just wondering if people have any thoughts on it? What can be improved / completely changed. Anything that can be added? Etc.
Thanks!January 13, 2012 at 4:46 pm #94562goalieman34Member
Looks great! I think it is an improvement for sure.January 13, 2012 at 4:52 pm #94563
Haha. So you’ve seen the current site design?January 13, 2012 at 7:12 pm #94569January 13, 2012 at 8:00 pm #94570eyeofnickMember
I think it is a good start, but could use some work mainly in the navigation area. I think the font is much too distracting, I think a nice light font like Helvetica Neue or Proxima Nova would suit it well at maybe 15pt. Also, the search bar inner shadow looks a bit harsh, you could bring it down a bit. Furthermore, the background image is a bit too WOW as well. Maybe a more subtle shade or thinner stripes would do the design more justice.
Please take these comments the wrong way. It is a great design, I’m just trying to give my opinion.
Cheers!January 13, 2012 at 8:13 pm #94571
I’ll make these changes later in the night and re-post some screenshots. As far as the background image goes, it’s user-customizable from 10 different options that are all different. The color choice is also customizable by the user.
Thanks for the feedback so far!January 13, 2012 at 8:45 pm #94572
How does this look? Changed the nav bar and the box-shadow in the search box. Also, I modified the font that will be used for article titles (it looks a little fuzzy right now and I’m looking into why).

I’ve gone ahead and re-modeled the featured stories section of the homepage as well. Does anyone have any last thoughts?

I wouldn’t go full-black for the background behind the titles of the featured stories. I’d lower the opacity, it’s a little overpowering like that. Maybe try 50%.January 16, 2012 at 12:55 pm #94742
I tried 50% and it looked way too “washed out.” How does this version look?January 16, 2012 at 1:29 pm #94745TheDocMember
Much better. I think the site as a whole needs a little bit more breathing room – everything seems crammed together.January 16, 2012 at 1:49 pm #94748BillyParticipant
I think that the thing with facebook, … on the first page is too much in one place. Other than that, it’s very nice.January 16, 2012 at 2:14 pm #94751
Just to clarify…do you mean by “facebook thing” the featured stories section (the thing that has two blocks on top and three on bottom)?January 16, 2012 at 5:49 pm #94768
