Men at work

UPDATE : OK people. this is mostly what it'll be. I made the background myself. I made the top image myself... i just stole the bikini lady from somewhere. If you made it, and want it off here, please tell me. I've the alignment just about right... now i just need to get the text colours right. Feedback?

I'm redoing the template a bit... so if things look odd at any point, ignore it, it'll be better soon, or if it doesn't work, back to the old default.

Dude... I for the life of god cannot understand this template bit... I am happy and content with my simple white background but there are these little things that are killing me...

This one looks good... is the tail or trialawhateversauras intetional? Or wait... is it something else?

hold on folks, it aint over yet

dude... i'm telling you purely from a communication perspective.. pkeep readability of font (color / size) in mind vis a vis the background.
jupiter juice makes my eyes strain with the whitish grey on pink.
mahima makes them water with the las vegas street effect...

make it easier to read.
plase....

dude,

a) Whoever uses yellow font on a website. I mean its YELLOW!!!!

b) The lady in the masthead is not wearing a bikini. This is just a regular unsexy swimsuit on a woman with an enhanced chest that sort of makes it look tight. Not even a cleavage, pal! How can it be sexy!

Harjee Kapur said...

I like the design though. The SUV and the tail-fin type feeling…

As for the font… You must be kidding?
You joking right?
You seriously cannot have this color scheme!!! Not yellow!!!
I mean is silk smitha, disco shanti or nylon nalini coming to inaugurate your new template?

Bhai saheb, ladki chhodo, hijra bhi nahin patega….... phir akele gaddi mein geda maarna…
And if the background is grey please have a slightly darker color font. Reduce the grey a bit… some color theory…
No point in having a color scheme where people have to struggle to keep reading. Unless you want them to.

And the babe on the masthead… well… we surely have different taste in women.

Font color please, kindly adjust… readability issue… eye straining…

Cheers

Ps- on the other hand, there is an old saying that goes “to ask humbly, is to teach how to say no.”
You asked for feedback (which means you cannot turn around and say ‘it’s my blog, I’ll do what I like). And hence like everybody has an asshole, everybody has an opinion. And you will get all of it.
You could have just changed it the way you liked, without offering a choice and we all would have had to adjust.
But you just had it coming buddy… four wheel high!
Now face it…

pps- the babe... take a re-look...

hey 4wd,
i'm feeling really bad for not praising ur previous template! cos im really wondering about the reasons that made u change it.. no compliments? boredom?? artistic epiphany???
bottomline-previous one was great! come to think of it..maybe even classy!! so yeah.. pls rethink things.

Hi 4wd,
Must agree with the previous guys..this new template isn't all that you want it to be. Its too crowded..or maybe its coz the background grey is too dark and seems to overpower everything else...or is it that there are too many shades here? The yellow font and that 'grey streak' make for difficult reading. The 'babe' looks more disproportionate than sexy (that waist CANNOT hold that bossom!..and no dont bring up the barbie ref). On the plus side, liked the 'artsy' look you gave your jeep. But thats about it.
Sorry to sound so critical.

hickey said...

it looks good... just the grey on the side-bar is too faint.. makes the writing illegible.

Madame Mahima said...

i am not lowing it!
