Home Page Review

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm looking for advice on ONLY the Home page of this site before I send it to the client. I have some dark panels with simple grey backgrounds and some with texture so I can see what the client prefers. Happy to hear your thoughts as well! I also have the button styles in two different fonts to see which font they prefer. Any and all advice is appreciated! The hero image is different from a normal website as the artist wants to showcase his art and have the titles mimic the annotation of an art book.

Viewed on a PC laptop, 1920 x 1080px 

Colour contrast between background, logo and navigation text seems too low.  Also, the fine lines on text and logo are getting lost. 

You can never see the full painting - you have to scroll up and down to take it in.  This is true of every painting on the page. 

Grey panel with 3 images & related button is good. Possibly still contrast ratio issues. 

After that it's great except there needs to be some padding in the Artist Journey section to take text and button away from the border line. 

..having just gone through the whole page I think the buttons are getting lost because they are fully transparent so the textured background and grey text mean that the contrast ratio is very poor. 

I'd increase the size of the picture credits -they're tiny. 

Overall I think any fixes would be to do with text sizing and colour contrast. Apart from that I like it, particularly the gold keylines with overlaid section titles as you get further down the page.
