Finally got around completing the required edits and such on the design.

http://stormvz.com/

What'd you guys think? You may need to do a hard refresh to see the new design.

  • Unlimited is a dirty word! :P

    I like it, but it looks kind of like a template. Just the way it's designed or did you alter a template for the use?

    @jarland it's custom designed by AKDesigner (Who also designed AtomicVPS, Hawk and others)

    I guess they fancy the word "Unlimited", I just told them to put random text

    Also noticed they forgot to change footer logo.

  • In that case... clean, professional, should do the job.

    On a side note, I'm probably the only one this bothers, but if I see one more stock image of a woman wearing a headset I'm gonna lose it ;) haha

    @jarland haha, we will probably get that changed to our mascot if I ever bother paying the price tag of $400 I was quoted for it ._.

    We have also finished sub pages and a sexy slider to but you have to wait till release for that :P

    Your site looks pretty neat, however, gives me a template feeling. Maybe it is just me but these types of designs are getting a bit old maybe?

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • The colors aren't working for me, looks too much like a template. :)

    But ideally yes we'd like to provide support even on public holidays, delayed possibly but we will still reach out to our clients

    @lele0108 when our header said 'virtual private servers' yes really it looked the same.

    Other than that the banner looks great, better than anything on our site.

    Well, I guess, but I know a website that looks pretty damn close to our site at first glance. I mind, but it's not something I care a lot about.

  • Just a few things I noticed: - Main navigation doesn't really "stand out". Maybe try an orange gradient, such as: http://stormvz.com/images/boxltbg.png - There's a color mismatch between the footer images. Noticeable when you're viewing the site at a resolution wider than 1280px. + http://stormvz.com/images/footerconinnerbg.jpg + http://stormvz.com/images/footerbg.png

    Besides that, it's easy to navigate and looks sharp. Good work.

    @tweakstur Actually think orange navbar will look good, will try it in a few! Will plug in the mac to tv to see the gradient issue and get that fixed.

    Thanks!

    @StormVZ, indeed it looks more slick and clean.

    If I had to make a critique or an opinion, I would make the arrows a different color, they blend in weird with the orange.

    Other than that, it does look nice tbh. (When you hover, it turns a nice white color, I like a color similar to that)

    @Nick_A No, we're just advertising SSD VPS's because we're not going to be selling them? You could have answered the question yourself really.

  • @StormVZ said: @tweakstur Changed the navbar and modified it a bit.

    Orange looks good! I'd try changing the arrows as @Nexus suggested, try black or a dark blue.

    One more thing that might look good: Changing the dropdown background color to black then use the orange gradient on the hover.

  • NexusNexus Member
    edited October 2012

    Oh and the hovering over the text on the drop down could also be changed as well, it's like a dark orange/grey on my screen, should be a brighter color :P

    Just my suggestions, and I wouldn't be saying them unless I truly believed in someone/know that someone is actually going in the right direction in life, so take it with a grain of salt, Thanks.
