New H&D.net Design Concept [DRAFT]

Unread post by Jason » Sun Feb 07, 2010 8:17 am

Hey all,

Just started working on a new design concept last night. Please take a look and let me know what you think of it so far. I'm more of a programmer, so don't judge me too harshly ;)

Click here for the design concept. The game boxes change the menu, click here to see more of an idea of what changes what.

Should I change the colours? Ditch the new menu idea? Any suggestions?

Let me know what you think, constructive criticism welcome :mrgreen:

How do you judge constructiveness? The idea behind it is nice; I think the boxes should be in full color all the time and the instructions on the left should be cut down to 3 words or none at all.  What I think needs changing is the "Home Help Search Profile Logout" on the forum pages. You are moving away from minimalist, slowly, but surely. :mrgreen:

Looks good. A new colour scheme might bring home the idea of new site/redesign more clearly but it's not a major issue. Perhaps a new screenshot graphic for the banner as well?

Thanks for the input guys, I have come up with another mock up based on feedback received check out design mock-up version 2 here, please let me know what you think thup01

Btw, the menu won't change with this revised edition, clicking a game box would just take you to that games main area

Oh, that's great. The colors are great, I love the boxes, love the banner. I don't know why, but I love the original HD and HDDB boxes. What I don't like, still, is the message telling you to click a box and the message you have on the left side. :mrgreen:

I think the area on the left is good for a message of the day type thing, but that little message you have there is... eh.

That looks great - just different enough to say it's a revamp but still with the same core identity. The only change I'd make would be to have an actual game screenshot as the banner. Perhaps a "revolving" one with shots from the different games and showing the various different environments? More work for you though....  grin01
