    Hi all, would you mind having a quick look at these two versions of a website, and tell me which one – at first glance – looks better, in terms of colour, layout and navigation. (Also which colour combo is best for the logo?)

    – thanks in advance, Leisa

    I prefer v1 with the strong colour heading. Easier to read also. (The orange is hard to read on the second version.) It’s good that it’s a fixed width too (i.e. does not expand when making window bigger.)

    I probably would suggest putting a link to the Contact page under My Order in the top menu as well if you can. That’s where the customer would normally look for it.

    Cheers.

    I am going to get difficult here…

    I like the colours on the second version, but I like the dark header on the first.

    If you use the colours of the second header (If the header was 100% width) of the first I would be happy :)

    I also prefer the layout of the second.

    Cheers!

    Agree with Matthew – the layout of the second one is more user friendly, but I like the bold header of the first :)

    Cheers

    Colour – option 2. I really don’t like the grey on grey of the first option, but maybe the making the grey banner BG full width, and putting that at the top of option 2 to see how it looks…?

    Layout – sorry, no comment, I’m not sure which aspects of the layout you’re after feedback for.

    Navigation – I’d maybe take… Neither… Hang on, I’ll throw something together. Quicker than typing an explanation… Here you go (disclaimer – don’t take this too seriously, I’m developer, NOT a designer)

    Is there any way you can try both, and see which converts better?

    Cheers

    I too prefer the OTHER layout, but agree the header should be full width. Good luck !

    My 2cents…

    OTHER is much better. Looks clean, fresh & generally more professional.

    Agree though that the orange gets a bit lost. BUT…I still think a darker orange would work well with this colour scheme.

    Good luck!

    I like option 2.
    However, I think it needs a subtle background behind the white body.
    I prefer this logo too.
