What I want is to tell my what you think about my first page of this Joomla site(also website is also not quite finished. It's on 75% done): http://www.carobni-dih.si/
What are good, what are bad and what are your recommendations?
(website is not in english, it's in my own language - Slovenian language)
Thank you for your comments in advance.
PS: template is from RocketTheme - Fracture:) and website is talking about local business as well as magic of life.
I was able to read your site thanks to the magic of Google
I enjoyed your site very much, I like bright colors and I feel you used them well. The colors are balanced well so there is not too much white or pink. A few things I would change if I were you...
1. The header - I am viewing your site on an IPad but your header seems to be jumbled together and covering your logo, what is a business without a logo?
2. Clutter. There is a LOT of information on your homepage, it is easy to discourage users with walls of words. I would advise to spread the content thought your site so it is not as overwhelming ( as an added bonus this will decrease your loading times)
3. Utilize social media- This is a must for almost any business on a budget. It is Free marketing! 71% of people use Facebook alone so chances are your customers are on Facebook. If they like your product they might like your Facebook page which notifies all of the customers friends about your product which equals more $$$
I hope this helps,
what is your target audience, I wonder? Teenagers? Color theme makes me think that this website is mainly for women or teenage girls due to lots of pink colors. But that only my own point of view.
I personally do not like the design and colors of the website, but since I also can't read your website I can't understand who the potential market audience actually is. Either way, it does not look modern so I think the logo and design can go through an upgrade, And as johnbu pointed out, there are no social media buttons which are extremely crucial especially with the new Panda update from Google.
Personally I don't like the design either. It's too... "pink". According to translate.google.com your website is offering crystals for purchase. The images and the theme itself don't correlates to the product that you offer, I think you need to think about redesign. Look at the shop layouts, you need something like this if you're trying to sell crystals.
Pictures in header of "Kristali" - Crystals, "Ponudba" - ?, and "Paketi" - Packages doesn't make any sense with content. Personally I confused when I've seen sexy sorceress and under it label "Offer", does it make sense? For me personally, no!
The only thing I liked in your design is footer, it's clean and it contains less pink color.
I don't against pink color However, it's inappropriate for your situation.
Hope it helps! Good luck!
P.S.: nice background you have, isn't it Apple's OS X 10.6 Aurora default wallpaper?
First of all, site is not done yet, I'm waiting for some content on other pages and then I will finish my front page. (and I didn't choose pink colors:))
Menus at 0.2 and 0.3 are 90% done, others are around 66% done.
Site is talking about magic of life(luck, truth, dreams, love, money...)also about supernatural, like angels..., and about crystals, what they are, how can you help...
Selling crystals is not the main point of this website, because it's not webshop(there will be only 9 crystals for sale).
PS: site have responsive template, that way you see on IPad or phone jumping together.
I will cut some text on frontpage and maybe add slideshow images into header. First three images are only temporary, because submenu ponudba is not finished yet.
The main issue I have is the use of fonts on the home page. They look a tad childish and Comic Sans-y. Perhaps change the sub-headers into a slightly prettier, more decorative font so they stay in theme more and change the font for the rest of the text into something more simple and stylish, like Trebuchet or Georgia.
Hope this helps!
Personally, when I look at the page, it is just way too pink! This may be good depending on your target audience, however, it isn't pleasing to the eye at first glance. However, other things such as your hover animations and menus are well done. The biggest critique I would make (even though its may seem small) change your title font over your paragraphs. Right now it looks like a Comic Sans type font, and IMHO, Comic Sans is one of the least professional, appealing fonts out there. Other than that, your images are really crisp and your background is cool.
Just change that font! Hope this is helpful!
Thx for reviews, I changed/added some images, also I reduce some text on front page.
About color, that will stay as it is, content color is #fff0ff and font color is #ff00ff name of the font color is Magenta.:)
Also font family I won't change, It's comic sans ms.
Both font family and color wants to have my friend on site.
Hello I think you have done a great job with the site, I like the style of the site. I thing lighter colors will be good but also like this is great , nice job man
I think , with this template you are targetting girls or women audience right, If you are not , then You MUST change the colour of your website, i'm 20 year old boy, and i found your website as girlish
I agree with everyone else – the site looks like something for youngish girls. Not a fan.…
I would have to Google translate to understand that language, but as far as the design is concerned I real think you should use more conservative colors. That pink especially towards the bottom is way too bright for my taste.
Please read what ISScyborg has said:
So however much you may hate the colour scheme, it's not helpful to keep suggesting it should be changed after ISScyborg has explained why it can't be.
If you have other comments or suggestions to make, I'm sure they would be welcome, but we really don't need any more posts which just disagree with the choice of colours.
First of all, i like the design view of your website but colors you have used are too thick for example pink color. Try to use light colors.
You have used social media buttons to visit pages but put share and like buttons some where, so your site content will be transferred to social media.
Site has some issues in responsive design like menu, and footer padding etc.
Almost site is looking good except above issues.
