New web site design for GBS *Opinions please!!*

Post by Robert L » Fri Feb 22, 2008 3:41 pm

Hello!

I am working on a new site design for GBS. The menu on the current site is getting dangerously long and is in need of a redesign. Could you all take a look at this new design and give me your honest thoughts and suggestions? I promise I will not be offended... I want to get all the bugs hammered out now before the whole site is redesigned.

No matter how big, small, or trivial the idea is, I want to hear it! :wave:

New site design: www.greatbiblestudy.com/newdesign2/

Thanks so much!!
Robert

Religion brings outward conformity; relationship transforms the heart.
It was the religious folks who hated and murdered the Son of God.
Is it not rightly said that religion is Satan's version of Christianity?

I really like it Robert. The color scheme is great. Things seem more accessible and coherent. I think it's a winner! Definite improvement :smile:

Niceness..I did have a one eency weency suggestion though.

Possibly more graphical...as in..instead of using text links to link to stuff on the navigation areas..maybe a cool button would look cool or something like that XD...OR..maybe little bullet images and categories for all the articles. No matter what it still is pure coolness


:-D

Design updated!

I just made some improvements... I added a little more graphical class to it, a little more color, and lightened up the background a little to give it a lighter feel.

Check this out and let me know what you think:

There isn't anything 'oppressive' about the darker sides and top, is there? I love the whiteish look of the current site because it seems to speak 'light' to the reader. I hope I'm not making a mistake by going with darker sides. :?

I appreciate all the input! :wave:

:wave: It looks very sharp and appealing to the eye and spirit. However, that top right hand part that says, "Great Bible Study," I think, needs to be tinkered with. Maybe a different font.

I, personally, like the lighter color, for the sides, but that's me. Like I said looks sharp! Well done!

What do you think about the new font in the logo now? :wave:

By the way everybody... keep the comments rolling! :mrgreen:

No worries about offending me... if something doesn't look right in your opinion, or could be improved... or there's just some crazy idea floating around in the back of your mind... then say something! I want to hear it!

Also, I'm still pondering the line at the top of the site... should it be...

Can a born again Christian have a demon? Click here!

or...

How can a born again Christian have a demon? Find out!

... or does anybody here have another idea? O:-)

Another design idea. What do you all think about a lighter/buttery styled site that carries a "warm freedom" feeling... sort of like a country theme... to portray the feeling of a simple Godly life of freedom and sunshine.

Thoughts anybody? (Now is the time!)

Robert,

Would the phrase

Can a Christian have a demon? Click here.

Be OK? I say that because a friend of mine doesn't believe she needs to be Born Again just a Christian. (Am I splitting hairs?)

Looks very nice though.
