    the light blue/green rollover menu is wrong. The colour tones don't match the rest of the site.

    kewl!!


    You are the second person that told me that, concerning the usability standards: i.e. links on the top as opposed to the left/right.



    Thanks!

    I like the look and feel very much generally. I like the overall style of the font too, but except for the "Grand Opening..." text, I find it all too narrow and insubstantial. Particularly, the Grand Egyptian Museum banner text (TL) and "GEM" (TM) should be thicker. Also the GEM should be softened against that background... it doesn't look like that text is antialiased very heavily.

    ty for the response.


    OK, I took your advice literally and changed a few things:
    1. changed the Grand Museum banner text from Helvetica neue light to Regular; placing more emphasis on the (TL).

    2. I deleted alltogether the "Grand Openiing..."

    Concerning the logotype, it was done in Illustrator and that's why it has the Vector feel to it. I might soften it or I might not. Not sure yet.


    Have a great day,


    swit.

    This is just a personal preference, but I think it might look better without the drop shadow behind the header. Overall it looks great, though.

    The pink isn't really working for me, and it makes it difficult to read Grand Egyptian Museum. I think it would look a lot better if you lightened up the drop shadow a bit.
