Aesthetics / Presentation

Aesthetics / Presentation

Postby Phantasmagoriat » Fri Dec 03, 2010 6:45 pm

Because the visual look and color scheme is such a subjective topic, this thread is dedicated to discussing how you want the org to presented aesthetically. While my current mockup is mainly there for structure and layout, it in no way indicates how the org will actually look. I kind of like orange/grey with blue, but that's just me. However, you can download an offline version here and modify the files in photoshop until it looks the way you want. The major files being : bg_button.gif, bg_header.gif, and bg_tab.gif. If you really feel like messing around you can modify the main.css code as well.

Other things that can go in this thread:
-color pallets
-color codes
-textures
-gradients
-boarders
-headers
-buttons
-forms
-menus
-graphics
-other websites you like...
-etc...

...there's probably a lot of stuff that can go here...

Okay. How do you want the site to be presented?

This isn't bad, but it's too busy imo. A lot of text, a lot of links, a lot of boxes. It just seems so like too much.

I updated recently to show all versions of my mock-up. The one you saw was Layout 3 - Big Bento. Check out the others too. Keep in mind this thread is still about Aesthetics like color. Check out the mock-up thread for other stuff.

After closer inspection, it's a slight pink. A rosy glow if you will.

lavender blends into anything... like godix said it's more like a ghost color made to piss you retinal glands off. it glows in the dark

Actually it's not that bad if it's used in a larger color scheme as a light/off-white. It's what we use for the current site banner... the only problem here is I'd have to see a full color palette.

Also, I changed the orange gradients in my mock-up to be less alarming. You can compare it to the solid orange line at the bottom of the screen.

Honestly, I just want the most important features most visible and most accessible. The biggest issue that I have with the current layouts I'm seeing is that things like uploading videos or visiting the forums still arent that visible. I like the general direction and I wouldnt mind changing the color scheme, if it ends up making things better organized. We dont need to be orange and blue.

I'm going to look into messing around with your layout for a bit tonight and see if I can rearrange somethings or something

Thanks for taking a crack at this layout thing :)
