    Redesign this Website Layout

    www.doonbusinessschool.com

    We have just shifted to Joomla 1.7.3 CMS.

    I know the user-interface is kind of crappy and there is lot of room for improvement, thats exactly where i am looking for your recommendations?

    My Present Thoughts are:

    1. Reducing the items in the top menu bar, making it more structured
    2. Doing away with duplicate redundant items on the home page.
    3. Adding a site map
    4. Changing the striped background color to an offwhite standard color, same wll be used to highlight the top menu bar options.
    5. Adding Social Button to the right, adding our official wordpress blog on the URL : www.doonbusinessschool.com/blog

    My Doubts/Your Ideas req.

    How do i take it to a web 2.0 feel to the website. Is it possible to do that using joomla CMS?
    I have a web designer taking care of it, what should i tell him to take it to web 2.0 feel?

    Look forward to your inputs.

    First, you need to work on your site's performance, when i open your site some procedures doesn't trigger or is taking time to trigger. When it comes to your design, it is a bit messy seeing everything moving around. I guess reducing the animation kind in your website would make it better.

    The animation/scrolling (left, right) may be a bit distracting and annoying for the first time visitors. Also first fix the point that you have mentioned under your 'Present Thoughts' section as may be after implementing them there remains nothing to fix.

    First thing I would do is make that image slider larger (in height.) As of right now the width-height ratio is doing the pictures a substantial injustice.

    Additionally, it is a bad idea to pack ideas into one spot. You need to bring focus to each individual ability of your business. Obviously hierarchy is a factor in this discussion, but none-the-less focus should be brought onto each aspect.

    I'm assuming this will be updated but as of right now there is no meta-tagging. There is also no title to the website.

    Instead of the home page being around 900px in height it should be around 1200-1300px.

    I'd have a ton of more advice but I am not sure how much I can really fit into a post or how much time I'd have to invest into it. I don't like giving problems but rather solutions so it is difficult.

    After re-reading your post and going back over the website. You need to have some discussions with your web designer. Some of the icons are bitmapped. You need to incorporate subtle textures on your designs. It brings it into the world of 2012. There can be much better work with drop shadows and slighted gradients.

    Here is a great website with some free subtle patterns. http://subtlepatterns.com/

    Obviously, these are merely for web backdrops but you can get an idea on how to stylize icons/buttons/slighted gradients... etc.

    I would be very pleased with myself if it was my client and I had come up with that new homepage. Looks very professional and clean.

    Be good to see it working - I can see that the main image is obviously a slider, presumably the items to the right of that are expandable?

    Also, the image at the bottom left with watch the video underneath and the play button, I think that should be embedded with the play button overlaying the image.. Just personal preference I suppose!!

    Content Not Attrative

    Hi

    This is how it looks right now - http://doonbusinessschool.com/demo/p.../pgdm-sap.html

    The content does not seem to be coming out correctly or should i say its not very reader friendly

    I think there should be improvements made in the Spacing, Font type and font size etc.

    Expert, please have a look and identify the problem with this, is this with the fonts and spacing or some thing else that i am missing??

    thanks
