As you can see there are many people that like the new template and others that do not like it, it is really hard to keep everyone happy, everyone has different tastes and expectations on each month release, i`m the new web designer who joined RT lately and the latest two designs were mine, i see that many people like those and that gives me motivation to continue working hard on the next designs, i totally accept your comment because it is just your opinion and taste, but i would like to get more feedback on that, what you do like and you do not? that would help me a lot to understand the weak points on the design so i can keep in mind for the future designs!Hi Vasjen,
In the main, it is visually similar to the basic gantry template... module design, the menu ... I don`t like that logo with all black, cut this area and looks strange.
Personally I like simple sites, with elegant details such as Zephyr, Crystalline and design options high, medium and low background level that don`t currently include... Another feature that I like to see again.
I work with web standards and conventions, RT has great design magazine like Solar sentinel, Terran tribune or Sporticus and all follow the standard magazine like e.g. cnn.com web site.
Syndicate may be an innovation, but I think he lacks web magazine standardization.
It`s just my personal opinion, some people will like the design and not others ... I have no doubt that the next design will be great! :cheesy:
