1WD Site Redesign - Sneek Peak by dainix 1WD Site Redesign - Sneek Peak by dainix
This is sneek peak to 1stwebdesigner.com site redesign - I am sure I will add more details, but this is how site will look in future.

Soon it will be coded and other details added - I would glad to hear what do you enjoy in this design, what you would like to change - pros, cons!

Maybe some ideas how to add more design elements keeping it still simple and minimal???

Very open to suggestions and critiques! Thank you!

Hi Dainis;

The new design is great and i'm a little bit jeaolus:) but there is one thing which i definetely have to mention.

Your blog is getting bigger and bigger day by day and you will have much more advertisers than now.
The sidebar of the your blog will be verrry colorful (12 small ad boxes and few big ad boxes...) so i think the main part(post side) of the blog must be as much white as it can be.

Regards

Arshad Cini

How's this for a suggestion: You are awesome! Love the new navigation a lot!

I'd say less space horizontally between the page buttons.

When scanning the Read More button appears as if it is for the post below it rather than the one above like it should. I think that if you put the Read More button above the separator rather than below that it would fix that.

Not feelin the 715 tweets text.

Looks great so far, love the colours and texture.

One thing I would suggest tough is applying a bit more padding/spacing on the left and right of the post area ("Presenting the Great New Features of..."). Looks and feels a little cramped so maybe an extra 20px's either side would let it breath a lot more and look cleaner.

Otherwise looks great!

Great work. I like it.

I'm not sure about the sliders. You really want to use two sliders here? In featured image and pagination? I think I prefer the usual old way, 1 2 3 4 ... Last. I'm not sure anyone want to go to 35 or 13.

The number 2 in comment number 2 is too distracting. You should keep it subtle as in the other comments/

Other than those two things, your design is great. Can't wait to see it live.

thanks! yes, if I look again I agree pagination buttons are little too big..will make them more eye candy :)

I don't understand though what you don't like in that font - it is used throughout whole site, do not want to mix too much fonts - now there are two - one for headings, other for everything else textual.

ah, Excuse me. it's not the font. take a look on the Comments Links. you've used a drop shadow.
since they are all buttons, you should use the same techniques on the Comments, read more, reply and submit.
