Header Changes?
Authored by: richardjpratt on Feb 12, '03 03:47:35PM


- some nice work over all, though I want to make two quick suggestions. For the new headers you use a large rule than a color shift (to light bllue) and then a thin rule. This creates a lot of visual clutter/edges - you go from white to dark blue, dark blue to light blue, light blue to dark blue, and then dark blue to white - 4 edges were you used to have 2 (white to blue, blue to white). If you multiply these edges by the number of headers you have on a page you end up with a lot of extra "noise". I would recommend to eather go back to light type knocked out of a dark rule, or a light rule with dark text on it. If you dislike these suggestions it might help a great deal to just get rid of the bottom rule. Any of these ideas shold make the page much less clutered.

You might also consider limiting the change of head color in the side bar. Let the change in type size and the rules set up the hierarchy and just use blue throughout the side.

I hope these suggestions help. I am a professor of design at a state unversity but I wanted to mention these ideas in the comments section so others could give their feedback to these ideas.

Best of luck, keep up the great work.
