Background Color (new design)

Hi guys!

First off, congratulations on launching your new site!

Secondly, I wanted to make a quick post to just offer my two cents on color advice. I’d recommend playing around with the background color: moving it from black to a lighter color with a gradient would be a lot easier on the eyes, and give the site a ‘friendlier’ look.

Smashing Magazine (a designer magazine) has a great article series on ‘color theory’ for websites, which you can check out for more information:

It’s filled with great examples / explanations of colors, and why certain colors give certain ‘feelings’ to users, etc.

Anyhow, great job again! Keep up the good work guys.
