Quote from: PATRIC
OK, in order to be able to actually count votes here on after, I will edit posts made (if I assumed wrong you contact me...) and state the voting rules (posts will be edited to fit these standards :) ):

1. - 1 post per member
2. - At top of that post which one gets your vote, and benieth possible comments, not graded judgements on both, you only get to vote for one of the designs
3. - No not relevant posting. (will be deleted)
4. - CRITISISM !! Only constructive critisism is allowed. That is critisism followed by some sort of suggestion of improvement, not just plain crit, that's not constructive. This is a fun competition done to inspire, not to degrade.

Comments:
His design is really nice. Colors are exactly what design needs (Header picture too) :)

DENiAL's design, very simple and also I don't like site colors and menu. Also that plants are unsuitable. Sorry :)

DENial

It has that 'wild' and less formal look to it, while still maintaining a clear structure.

4Sandrix' is very formal, manicured even. While that is good, it is also (ehem... sorry) commonplace.

Both are good (far better than I could do), but I prefer less formal...

Great work on both submissions - far better than anything I would come up with (which is why I am not competing, hehe). Very hard to vote on as each design would be used in different applications... Denial's for a simple blog and Sandrix's for a site that would carry a wider variety of content entry points on the home page. It's almost like comparing oranges to apples rather than oranges to oranges.

If I must pick one over the other tho... I'll pick Denial's for its simplicity and easier-reading large text (for better accessibility.) One could just add a text-resizing feature (stylesheet switching) to offer different text-size options.

Both designs are very very nice but my vote goes to 4Sandrix.

I find typography, paragraph's padding and margin important and 4Sandrix gave more attention to it. But other than that, both are pretty good.
