I quite like your branding idea, It’s very clean, and catchy. Logo is clean too, I hate with a passion, messy logo designs.
Thanks, that’s the general intention, even though I still need to AA the logo.
Your website, while plain appears functional. Kinda unsure what the deal is with the Pixar pictures, but to each their own. I am kinda confused why you have a gradient top-bar for, do you have plans for this? The typography is kinda bleh too, nothing exciting. I do fairly elaborate designs, so to me this would be a very mild dish of mexican.
The slider images are the default Nivo slider images, I’ve just not changed it. The top-bar is there, because I plan to incorporate a breadcrumb-style navigation through all of the sites (For example, http://services.glaciate.net/file_host/).
And, for the font, do you really think it’s that…bland? I’m just looking for something clean and readable, although, it would be nice to be able to pick something more better looking.
As for the forum, I am hoping you’re planning to improve, because it’s definately the ugly sister. The width is off (if you were hoping to make it like the main site), which bothers me personally. I am not a fan of the buttons…at all. The text is pure white, I would consider making the background white/light grey instead, and making the text black, or dark grey (like your main site). It’s a better contrast, imo.
Definitely, it’s a hasty modification of the default myBB site, and I plan to reinstall it, and try again. I rushed too much for my liking.
Look forward to seeing the progress.
