Hey all. I'm looking for input on my new web site, www.pharmcountry.net . I'm not totally satisfied with the design, but I can't think of anything else to "bring it all together" as it were. Any input you have is appreciated.

Thanks,
Andrew

The overall design is quite good but below are my personal views:


The title logo is too big
The page is a but squashed together
The colours are a bit weak


But overall it is good and is valid XHTML 1.1

I like it, although i do think the logo could use some work.

The pill part of the logo is great and more should be made of this. In contrast the rest of the design is stilted. I think a good start would be using only two colours for the site and keeping the third to the logo only.

Ok, sorry for not responding sooner. I've been gearing up for my pharmacy technician exam that I took this morning, so I've been busy. Here goes:

mw2005: As for the size of the logo, I like it at 150x150, but I do agree that the design made it kind of squeezed in, so I added margins around the logo image and removed the background color from the sidebar links. As for the colors, I made the links bar and post title graphics bolder rather than pastel.

Ranger56: What do you think needs to be done with the logo? (or was it already addressed.)

Pennimus: Thanks for suggesting using only two of the colors. I removed all the green, and it started to come together.

PcMan: The logo is simple, yes, but that's how i designed it. The red/blue are kind of supposed to remind you of arteries/veins, and the yellow was thrown in there just to make it more interesting. But I think I might replace the yellow with a caduceus (the universal medical symbol.)

It's actually not my first attempt at design, though I am definitely not professional in any way. (for example, my old blog design at http://forever.chronolink.net/ which I really like and will probably reuse at some point.)

PS. The logo is actually just a rotation/colorization of a stock photo I found on the net (I've rotated it about 30 degrees to the right, and originally the pills were all this kind of pukish green color.)
