Looks neat. Some of the colours on the home page look a bit washed out for my tastes, maybe too much of the orange-y colour? Wondering also, will everybody know what it is by looking at that page? Just thinking events like DIBI - people may just call it DIBI, but there is no mistake to what it is on the website when you see this in big writing;

"DESIGN IT. BUILD IT. THE TWO–TRACK WEB CONFERENCE"

But … I'm just a Python guy, this is hardly an area I know anything about :)

Hope that helps!

Hey Joe,

The first one looks more enticing.
The second one feels too boring.
The third one seems more "community" oriented and friendly because there are people's pictures on the homepage making a better connection with the user.


The second one is ruled out IMHO.

The first one is good but maybe just TOO much orange, recreasing typography and the opacity of the images were too transparent to stand out at you, the orange was more prominent than the images.

The third one was the most readable, best typography.

Since all three images are of different pages on the site, it's difficult to compare them side-by-side.

My conclusion is to mix Pic 1 with Pic 2, having nice visible pictures, good typography but keeping to the "orangy" or "browny" theme color of whisky.

- Paul.

My understanding was that each page would have its own look and feel. And thus you are seeing one design, not three.

Perhaps. That's not something i grasped.

I believe it was an attempt at 3 alternative designs while still showing different pages. I'll let Joe clarify on that one.

On my mobile.

Looking good the change in theme looks good when its all in one page. Let's make the  nav sticky so users can move up and down the page.

I'm happy to progress.
