Navigation Bars

Post by ginger on July 9th 2010, 10:28 am

These are my very first Navigation bars ever, and I hope y'all like em.
I got bored and started playing around on a photo editing site and made these from scratch.

Rounded corners are nice, and New messages and Register should probably be a different color so it doesn't blend in with the background.

Pretty good, but you do need to work on a few things. The font doesn't look very nice, you need something smooth and sharp, instead of having curls and waves. They are very big for a nav bar, but still, nice work.

@ that70sguy92
Thank you for your opinion.


@ Fred100
It's because I was going off the colors of my forum, just because i didn't know what colors to use.

I don't like the italics. Or at least I think it's italics, unless it's just a bent font. Otherwise nice.

I tihkn you've already figured out there's room for improvement, which is great because that means there's alot to learn Smile

In short;
> Images need to be smaller. A NavBar's supposed to be on one line.
I'd advise you make the NavBar as one image and then cut it into the different pieces. That generally helps to keep the size in check
> Work the background more. It seems blurred and isn't very appealing
> Make your text stick out a little more.
Sure the contrast between white and dark colors is good, but the text is too plain. Adds effects to emphasize your text
> Rounded corners? Ofcourse, cuts away from the "classic" rectangle. But that also means work the edges; you've got lost pixels which reduce the visual appeal to them.
