That's looking good. Great color scheme. Dark but still very good readable. Great piece.

Seems to be very FOWD Inspired... http://futureofwebdesign.com/ is it not?
you've just been LAWYERED! lol
seriously tho, it's not the best idea to totally rip a pretty popular site?
Stu, it's FOWD inspired as far as the map of the UK's concerned. It's an international conference, so there'll be multiple sites of the same vein with a different map of each country it's in replacing the UK one. Black and red just happen to be the brand colours, and the big numbers are important figures we want to pull.
Jamie, yes there's a map of the UK in there. Congratulations for spotting it and also noticing that FOWD has done similar. You get a gold sticker.
will i get said gold sticker via post or email? exciting times!
Seriously? The same map? Did you forget about the same nav, the same colours, and the same large typography?
Well my first thought when I saw your shot was FOWD! I'm with John and Jamie
now call me colour blind but... http://ultraknowledge.com 's brand colours don't seem to be black and red?
John, the map is the map of the UK. I can't do anything about it's shape. It's a map.
The topbar navigation is how I build every website I design. I find it's the best way to do it, and the most accessible. FOWD has a vertical nav for their pages in the top centre, their top nav is for their networks.
The colours are the brand colours -- however I've built the whole page using RGBa and CSS3, so the whole of the site's colours can be changed in just a few tweaks (for future conferences that won't use these specific colours).
Not only is it a black background because of the brand colours, there are multiple pages with different visualisations, many colourful, which make it easier to read.
As for the same large typography, really? I want people to notice these numbers. That's basically the whole point of this site. Breaking down statistics around a specific event so brands can evaluate it better. Most organisers of such have never been able to do this before, so I want to bring certain things to their attention, and chose to do so with large type.
The small screenshot size doesn't seem to be helping, but I can honestly say I've not tried to rip anything. I'm creating a hierarchy of important stats that I want to pull focus, whlist keeping readable and within brand colours. Anyway, that's all I'm saying on it.
Jamie, that's 'cos it's not for Ultra Knowledge.
who's brand colours are they then?
Does it matter? They're black and red. It could be coke zero, it could be black 'n' red notebooks, it could be the A-Team. The point is it's configurable so I can easily change it for multiple brands.
It's not any single element that makes this problematic, Dave. It's the combination of so many similar elements: the black and red, the UK map, the big numbers, the arrow, and the real nail in the coffin for me, the target over London.
Either way it looks the same mate, Jay sums it up great!

This was the previous header of the tweet tracker stats with the previous name. Also didn't sit right with the client's brand colours, and the map was too localised on a specific area of London and didn't show the international scale of the conference.
Might adapt it for smaller conferences and different brands. Also need to whip up a simplified version to give away to charities and whatnot.
