Latest web design or my project.

Posted 15 August 2012 - 08:53 AM

I need help on suggestions.

1. Any errors that you can notice? (Not including grammar)
2. Any suggestions for a different content style? for example. I dont really like the server boxes + highscores but I didn't have any other idea.


The design:

Ignore footer.
Should I start a new design or use this one?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I like this one pretty much, though I completely agree that the servers/ high scores box doesn't match the established style and actually hurts a little given the large contrast between the dark page and the light background box.

A quick, off-topic question: What is the game for? Is it a Minecraft survival server?

I'll have to play around with things and see what is out there, but I'll post back with some constructive ideas when I get a chance to look around.

Be sure to keep in mind what would happen if you had a server name like "name.survival.com" because you are already at the edges of your boxes with just have "a, b, c" server names. Are they going to wrap some how? Are you going to drop the port as being a line underneath? Think a little about expansion.

Typically if your call to action is to sign up for the service, you may want to take it out of the top left and put it a little more prominent on the page. You could tuck a logo up in the upper left that perhaps hangs over the background image or something.

As for the scores box, you might be able to get away with making the background a very very light grey. Maybe something on the order of #FAFAFA where it appears almost white. Should work since your text is white. Too stark of white may hurt a little.

Not bad so far.

I would make the image clearer so it's more obvious that it's a minecraft server site.

Make the gray in the lower area lighter, currently it makes some of the text a slight stretch to read.

Make the gradient in the background fainter, the purpose of a background gradient is to emphasize the content, and currently it detracts from it by drawing attention to itself.

You might look into some light gradients on the tables as well to make it look a bit less flat.

Overall still a good solid start, keep us posted.

It's a beautiful web design but you have to do some more effort to create it more beautiful and user friendly. And if possible try to use a better color combination to display players score table which will easily get mixed with remaining web page design color combination and if possible change the display arrangement of player score table in order to make it more scan-able.

Please avoid posting in topics more than a few months old. The OP has more than likely stopped watching the topic.
