The goal is simple, make the home page [url removed, login to view] look better.
The current leaders are:
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
Things we like:
The part with the products in the horizontal bar,
iThe graphics look better.
There are three boxes (article/ blog/ tweets)
Using less text. Usually when its a big paragraph people will not read it.
The footer is less cluttered.
That the search box has more room
Shorter, well thought though text is nicer
A back to top in the footer
Text is better distributed.
[url removed, login to view] is a good example of putting content in a grid
Things we don't like:
the navigation bar needs to look nicer
There should be NO DUMMY TEXT (at the bottom of the footer).
The fonts should look better
The content should not feel crowded.
using dots to scroll are nice cause it gives an impression of the number of things to scroll through, like on an iPhone
a a magnifying glass for search, we can generate a text box on over and this saves space
Start off by giving us some pics (whatever format your comfortable with: psp, png) or just ask questions.
UPDATE: Don't worry about a HTML/CSS version if this impedes a good design. We will worry about how to get the design into drupal in a different project.
If you submit something, you'll always get some feedback from our team within a 24hr working day to improve on a next version, so go ahead and have a go!
The site [url removed, login to view] is the new version of are current site www.opentracker.net.
Our target is someone who owns a company website or app, looks at the home page and thinks "Wow I need to try this for my website/ app or sales team"
To get a gist of what we do take a look at [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view]). Take a look at the products we have to offer: web analytics, mobile analytics, lead capture, big data as a service.
As with a master's paint brush make the design of the home page look better.
NOTE: The main color scheme (font colors on dark gray background/ dark gray font on white/ logo) NEED TO STAY THE SAME. I.e. the company style needs to be recognizable.
The "track your visitors now", needs to be placed somewhere to the top of the site above the fold (before scrolling).
The best design up to now has been attached, see if you can improve on it!
It should tickle our target audiences interests. The person is typically from a website owner, sales team, a developer of apps or websites, or a company hiring these people to make their website or app. They are not afraid of trying out technology. You need to read through the site and get a feel for what we already have to offer ([url removed, login to view]).
The homepage can be playful with an emphasis on professional and clean (eg [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view])
On the navigation the red color when scrolling over the navigation can be improved. Try working with a different colors. The line spacing for the navigation publication and company is bigger for the last items. the search box and blog/ login are all cluttered together.
We want people to login easily, so that can get some type of emphasis or stand on its own. The visuals should invite are target audience.
What needs to be improved is the way the text is displayed, the form, (the line spacing, the fonts, the way the navigation is shown (line spacing) the way the search box and blog and login is displayed), the way the boxes are aligned. For instance the "Opentracker Products" section is in a box, and displays four products. Right now the box is hitting the gray area underneath. Its not centered with white spacing one top, and no white spacing on the bottom. The border on the left is visible and the border on the right is not.
