Bye-Bye Golden Layout: Redesign FCON21.BIZ

Post by johncanary » Sat Sep 22, 2007 4:13 pm

Hello S9Y World.

I have recently changed the color scheme of my SY9 Blog. The blue background and
orange font di not find many "friends". You want to have a look? There is a screen shot of
the old layout, too.

Bye Bye Golden Layout

The new look is definitely a lot better to the eye :)

Well done

It's much nicer now than in the original orange on blue. I've made (much) darker orange and darker blue work well together, but it was isolated to a blue over orange text/tag line logo, blue text and orange design elements (bullets, 1px borders, etc) on a white background.

Used sparingly and in just the right hues, the two colors are very complimentary and create great impact and interest - otherwise I tend to agree with the point made in Joe Hallock's study (from your post).
