Why does it look so different from last week? Well, I had one of those moments where I realized I wasn’t fully grasping the brand’s identity. The logo seemed separate from the page and the navigation seemed to be slapped on there. Firstly, I redesigned the logo. Then, I consolidated the nav, social media buttons and logo into the header. And slipped the contant info into a third column on the side. Pretty much the principle of “important info flows to the top.” I reevaluated the content and separated the second column into more meaningful chunks.
I decided that despite how much I like seeing slideshows functioning, that my site should be something comfortable and not flashy. Especially content-loaded websites, I think that with all of this text, a slideshow as big as I was proposing last week would be more distracting than helpful or ornamental.
