Views and Opinions needed on my home page if you don't mind :)

Hi everyone :)

I have been working away on this for a little while now as my current design seemed a little harsh on the eyes here, and I now have a better grasp on what I want to do and achieve in web design and development :)

New Design

With this being a workspace you will only be able to see it whilst the code is open at my end but hopefully you will get a chance :)

Let me know all your thoughts even if they are really picky its all good feedback to know :)

Great job Craig! Here is some feedback as though I were a potential user of your site.

I really like the drop down menu transition for Developers. However, I'm used to the drop down appearing on mouse hover, saving me a click.

The change in color of your logo on the Websites page is confusing. I don't think I've ever noticed a business that changes the color of it's logo on it's own site - feels like a branding issue. I love the image itself.

I like the use of colors and graphics, with a full width graphic at the top. Something is bothering me about the Always Responsive! section. It's not intuitive for me to interact with the content inside a mobile device demo. Instead, I think it may be more effective to abstract the content on the mobile device demo with simple abstractions - lines for text, shapes for images - and then have the description and 'Find Out More!' button on either side.

I hope this was helpful feedback. If all I were to say was 'Great job!', I feel it would be a lost opportunity.

Cheers

Hi Robert :),

I really appreciate your feedback! I have played around with the themed sections were the color changes for the logo and footer as well as what would be the links in the content for a while, it feels great in design but you bring up a really valid point and am wondering this will also become confusing to the user?

My goal is to section up the website using color themes, I wonder if this can be achieved with a little more subtlety but still with the same principles in mind.

I am having a thought to change the page header to the theme color along with the content border but leave the footer and logo as the brand. What would your thoughts be on that?

I also understand what you mean about the always responsive section, I have put it in to show how my site responds as an example but it does lack clear involvement from the user as well, I think a little more clarity over its purpose to the user is needed to illustrate quickly what I am trying to show.

Again feedback from me is invaluable so I really appreciate you taking the time to look over the site :D

Have you posted this question in the Form? I am not familiar with ruby at all unfortunately Ali so I would be unable to help you with that sorry.

hey craig your website looks awesome ! hopefully ill be able to design something like that one day ! i think when looking at your responsive layout on a smaller screen you could maybe add a space between each section so it looks less squashed up? if that makes sense

great work !

Hi Oliver!

Thank you for you feedback :), I will take a look at the section margins for the smaller devices and see what opens the layout up just to have it look a little less cramped on mobiles :)

Thanks Again!

Craig
