    So I've changed the look as you guys suggested!

    Current site: www.stinksnthings.com

    Changes made with suggestions so far:
    http://www.stinksnthings.com/images/better1.jpg
    http://www.stinksnthings.com/images/better2.jpg
    http://www.stinksnthings.com/images/better3.jpg

    The original design came from a contest, and I dramatically changed the colors, some layout, and added stuff to it, (hopefully) making it better.
    Our of the above 3, which do you like best? And please critique/comment/suggest/stare in aw on them.

    I am going for a clean, organized look that also fits the product category (selling gag gifts such as stink bombs, fart bags, etc.)

    The first two seem too bright to me, but thats just how I am I like very subtle websites. The last one I like because the lime green type color goes very well with the theme of what you are selling... good luck on the rest of the site.

    I am going for the 3rd one too. Just don't feel good looking at the blue. Maybe the blue is not attractive enough.

    number3

    I like the colour combination best as it's less 'screamy' - or bright...

    the overall design is a little heavy on the dropshadows - quite distracting from the plentiful content....


    good luck

    I think out of the three the last one works. I don't think he needs a better design because this works for the typ of business he has (stinks and things).

    So third one it is

    I would change the logo. It's not very visible/legible and that's bad for branding.

    3rd is ok .
    But use smooth fonts.
    Also use a better logo.

    Nice work ...

    I would suggest the third image, the green breaks up the blue nicely. Green, blue and white is a nicer colour scheme.

    Feck. Big post, deleted by back button. Grrr.

    Okay, I like the site. It's nice and friendly and inviting. But, lots of little criticisms. Feel free to take them with a pound of salt, and remember, I do like it

    I'll start on the homepage, working top to bottom, and maybe go deeper

    Logo: Make the alt text more descrptive (this basically applies across the site)

    Home/Cart/Info: The space between icons and text isn't clickable. Annoying

    Tabs: Make them text based. Both for SE's and for accessibility. Plus, they'll look better. Once you've done that, use fades just like the curved header areas below, it'll pull it all together nicely.

    Email subscribe box: Move it to the right sidebar. Move the categories to the left, and this at the top right.

    Featured items: Item names should be clickable.

    Sale box: Make the top curve look like other areas and the content white, like other areas. This also looks weird here. Maybe put it in the middle column?

    Why Shop With Us: Why is this here? Odd for an ecommerce homepage.

    ITEM PAGE

    Secondary navigation: What the? This is just odd... Tidy the secondary nav up, please and thanks.

    Breadcrumbs: In IE7 it's off to the left, needs to be aligned with content area.

    Left sidebar: Why is there nothing but categories here? Promote other items, the newsletter, an RSS feed, anything!

    Item: Why are there no "similiar item" listings? Upselling's the key to succeeding with ecommerce. If you aren't upselling in at least 3 areas of every page, you're losing sales.

    Reviews: No reviews? No tying testimonials to products?

    AdSense: Wtf? Drop AdSense. If you want to promote another ecommerce store with affiliate links, fine, but don't just have advertising on your ecommerce site.

    OVERALL

    Most of the feedback above will give you lots for other areas. Search in particular needs work.

    As I said, though, the site's good. Concept's great You do need an "About" page. Maybe a blog where you show off having fun with the products, giving ideas for pranks, etc.

    Overall, great, you should be proud
