Love this »inspiring« white space…
I think its the right direction. I would add more contrast and get rid of the timeline thingy. Good job.
Thanks @Lukas Bugla I debated on the timeline element for a while. It wasn't initially there, then I added it because it felt too simple...but I think you might be right in that it isn't needed!
although it looks nice this came into my mind instantly: http://contrastrebellion.com/
@Sarah Mick Yeah, I think it will look more balanced without it. Ah and maybe you could look for some other social icons which didn't take that much attention compering to the main nav.
@Zsolt Kocsmarszky Haha, thanks for the link to that! I must admit that I am a repeat offender in the low contrast department. I really love the way things look when the colors sort of fight with eachother... though the first importance is readability. Funny thing is that in their examples, one of the websites is a company I've worked for and another example is a girl I've worked with :) Anyway, good point. And point taken!
@Lukas Bugla Oh, he was saying that the sentiment of the website is what reminded him. The site is built specifically to remind people that websites really need contrast and readability. :)
Haha, I didn't even pay attention to the content :D Good point.
Thanks, @Eric Hoffman ! :)
Line length on the opening paragraph is a bit long relative to font size. Bump that up a few points and give it some hierarchy over the copy at the end.
Lovely green :)
@Joshua Krohn Excellent point! Will definitely do that. Thanks!!
Like a boss! Cant wait to see it in action.
Haha, thank you @Eric Stanley !!
There's something about this that's so pleasant. :)
Mint color is definitely taking over this year.
Looks good. Ditch the timeline.
@Adam Debreczeni two votes to ditch the timeline thing, I def think it's a 'must do' now! Thank you! :)
Get rid of the timeline and you are good to go :) Lovely work, Sarah!
@Muhammad El Melegy Thank you! Will do :D
What? Ditch the timeline? I think not... make it more prominent. =)
I'd remove the timeline and nix the buttons of the social icons and just let the icons themselves sit there; it'll appeal to the white space more.
@Lukas Bugla Agree, i think the thumbnails don't need any lightness + Dark border. An light grey border might work
nice work Sarah ;)
