Oh sh*t, my bad. Thats my biggest issue about forums…i cant always tell the tone or attitude of the posts. I had just got done reading the other post about design theft and probably put me on the defence.
Now that we’re on the same page, I think we are going to present this to the client with a couple different options. One of the options would have a flash menu and masthead imagery, however the owner hates the flash that is in the initial design and the user base may not warrent the use of it. I have until next week to brainstorm different ideas / concepts but dont want to waste much more of the design time until we get more feedback.
Some commented that the menu in the original design was pretty cool. I think this was the part we disliked the most. We believe this could cause a confusing and frustrating user experience and used outdated methods. Our goal is to reorganize their current content, nav, and additional user supporting elements to create an effective user experience.
Hope this helps with our thought process and sorry for the misunderstanding.
