Hello. i decided to add some more colors to my theme and maybe could you to comment it? Current theme, used at http://www.soft-news.net is too basic, as some people said. There is a screenshot for new design - http://www.soft-news.net/new.png

What do you think? Is it better? Don't look at menus yet - they aren't modified in new theme yet. But what's about colors and fixed size? Please let me know your comments

I've had a quick look - great site BTW.

Personally, I really like your current theme. I'm a big fan of white space, and clutter free environments. I really like your blue bars, and the site is easy to use and more importantly, easy to read!

Your new version looks just as good, although the only real difference I can determine is the use of green bars? It does not strike me as a radical change?

Good work.

Well, yes, because some of visitors said - add more colors, more colors...

Maybe just a new logo would do the job. It is very dark and .... boring.

If you take the blue you used for menue, it is fresh and vibrant, but the blue in your logo is rather calming.

And add a 1px light green border around the google adds.

Regarding your changes, not bad, though very MS XP like. And I would have all fonts in item headers and footers display as bold, and with a hint of green. I would also give the News items a 5px bottom margin, so that they don't tough each other.

One last idea, have drop down shadows for you News Section Logos.

Hope this inspieres

Just noticed, you also have a gap at the top of your news that you want to get rid of...

I agree with Jason here. The logo is pretty plain, and I think spicing it up would add a lot to the colour & brightness of your theme (assuming that is your goal). I quite like your work so far though .

Please do not "paint" your site with more colors. It is fine with white and blue. I think the green is "fighting" with your content.

It is right, perhaps you will think about changes in your logo but this is one of the most complicated steps.

Ok, i'm remaking all the style. But i have very basic skills in graphics (working as admin not a webdesigner), it will be the worst thing on the web - logo created by me :(
