Good Evening all, I have been playing around with a new design for the site and i would like your feedback.
The layout that is live now is the new design. Our other design looked like our sister site The Bosun’s Watch. Click here to take a look.
So, does the new design do us justice or do you feel the old design was better ?
I would be greatful if you could take a few minutes and leave me some feedback. Is it better, worse, to hard to navigate ? All information is very useful as we want what is best for the user.
