Thread: Introducing the New B&B Front Page (Pt. II)

    I like the cohesiveness of it all. Especially at the top of the page.
    I don't like the new online/offline indicators.

    If anyone wants to customize it themselves can mess around with firefox addons greasemoney and stylish along with Platypus, which lets you edit any page online as if it were in frontpage or dreamweaver.

    I like the old one myself.

    The new one is nice looking, but it is too reminiscent an Apple site from 1999; which isn't necessarily a bad thing - it is a GREAT looking skin. But it just doesn't mesh with the shaving atmosphere at all.

    I don't know if this skin was custom made by someone here, or downloaded from a skin site. IMHO, a custom, B&B-only, skin designed with shaving and this particular forum in mind, would be more suiting.

    Something masculine and rugged, yet clean and easy to read.

    This is just a quick mockup I made while at work to attempt to convey my thoughts, trying to incorporate the razor and brush into the logo:

    That's cool, too. I do like the logo.

    Thanks. I made that earlier today during my lunch break, trying out an idea I had (I sometimes have more free time than I know what to do with ).

    I'd be more than happy to offer a hand w/ graphics and things, if needed.

    You certainly have. In doing that, though, you have also broken the Hall of Fame submission form.
