Here is fine. Hopefully it will spur some discussion.
I like the cooler colors, the "code" style of the first one. I like the
layout of the second one, but the warmer colors and fruit make me feel like
I'm ordering a 'smoothie'.
For me, when I first looked at the "code" mock, I had to do a double take to
find the navigation (it wasn't that hard, just didnt "stand out"). When I
come to a site, I want to be able to quickly find what I need, so being able
to scan the page quickly (headings stand out), or figure out where to
navigate to, are key elements for me.
Then again, Im just a developer, and stick figures and solid boxes are about
the extent of my design abilities (just kidding, I'm probably a *little* bit
better then that).
If I had to pick one or the other, I'd go with the fruit, only because I
like the layout better. However, I think a combination of the two would be
I'd love to see other designs as well.
