I changed the 'framework' to a lighter gray and made the nav-bar 'logo' use the same colour.

(( Edit: to see a full page screenshot, go back to the previous page ))

Tell me what you think:

"yii framework" is too close to the logo

the "framework" color (dark grey) isn't a good choice, it should be lighter

Yes but that is all fixed already. I should probably post new screenshots of the site in progress.
If you're interested in following the progress, then do visit the repository at Github ;)
Thanks for the interest!

I'd use a "sans serif" font.

"yii framework" is too close to the logo symbol

Shadows below "Facebook" etc.... hello 1998 :P

The font for the headers is a sans serif: Josefin.

I am using Arvo for the body text, but you might be right that it should be sans serif. I'll try another from the list of Google font pairings for Josefin. :)


That cool 1998 shadow is just a filter and the one that looked acceptable on that blue background.
It could be toned down or taken out.

The logo has been discussed at great length here: https://github.com/y...k.com/issues/61
And I am considering it done :)
At least for now.

Which font should it be?

I am leaning towards Open Sans right now, but my leaning changes each day :P

I changed it to use Open Sans for the body, while of course keeping Josefin Sans for the headers:

For the body, I'd use the usual

font-family: "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;

How boring you are :P

In a serious note: I don't think Helvetica is the best font for reading. :)
