    Hello,
    We currently have 2 main "themes" that we would like a bit of feedback before we proceed with coding.

    Our logo is going to be redone as it doesn't fully tie in with our second theme, so please rate the designs entirely:

    Design #1

    [​IMG]

    Same design with a shorter Menu bar:

    [​IMG]

    Design #2
    SEMrush
    [​IMG]


    Please explain why you like the specific design, what your impressions are about us and something we could improve on it.

    Thank you for your time!

    I like Design #1 with the full menu bar. I like it because the header on design#2 is dark and tends to swallow up your logo. The darker color scheme of design# 2 also draws away from the important info in the body of the page. On design#1 I like the full menu bar, because the shortened bar looks truncated and out of place.

    I like the Design #2 with the full blast color it's more relevant with the topic and the darker scheme makes it more perfectly erotic and adds more flash to the eye.

    Design #2 looks more awesome. The color contrast seems amazing.

    I like design one, but they're all really good- you must be a pretty good designer.

    Great! I'm glad you like them, we didn't design them we hired a small firm to do the work for us and they have been amazing so far!

    I prefer the #1 with the short menu bar.
    But I don't like the background colors of the hosting plans (red blue green)... IMO, it should all be the same color, but you could add a badge / different icons on the different hosting plans.

    Definitively #1. I agree with mrmuggles that the short menubar is better than the long one.
    I don't agree that the background colours of the plans should be of the same colour. I think it
    is rather clever that the colours of the plans match the logo!

    However, they are perhaps a little too dark... You have used colour very sparingly on the
    page, so they appear as a little too "heavy", if you know what I mean.

    Finally I voted for number #2 in your poll, and I suppose that is design #1 with the
    short menu. I think you ought to edit your original post, because it is possible to misunderstand
    the poll alternatives.

    Overall I think this is a very strong design! Nice work!

    Thank you for you commentary! We have decided to go with the #1 theme but because we wanted a few tabs we did go with the full menu bar. We are glad that you guys like our design and we are currently getting it coded and finalized.

    Thanks again!

    It would help if you were able to spell - e.g. 'professional' - rather than 'proffesional' - I suggest you learn how to spell words in English before posting on the web; or hire a proof reader.

    We hired a designing team to do this and these are just quick mockups they did the work for us so there is no need to be rude. They did outsource a bit of the work which is perfectly understandable since the design work was very well done but I do agree that they did not care much for the spelling. The spelling is a bit irrelevant anyway because its all going to get replaced, its only filler text.

    We thank you all for your help and comments. Our website is still being developed and is almost complete.
