Design refreshment, feedback requested!
 
Hello everyone.

We recently refreshed our website.
New: https://localnode.net
Our old design can be viewed via this image (watermarked).

We gave the website a refreshment and a slight colour change.

All feedback is welcome, and appreciated.

It looks to me that there are very minimal changes BUT I like the design anyway.

Subtle changes, but all in line with what you built the first time. Important information up front, very clean and functional look.
Correct me if I am wrong, but the key difference might be that the new design is responsive?

That was bizarre. The first download of your site was scrambled, but upon reloading it, turned out fine. Love your site ... very professional and clean.

Load time is pretty reasonable. It's obviously a WP site, based on the design, but that's not all bad. Not bad.

I've got the load time down to 1.33 seconds in the USA. It'd be much faster but the Comodo seal thing adds a bit extra - which really annoys me.

Maybe it was cached? Strange, though.

The old design was responsive as well. There're a few changes such as icons, but it's just a bit of a facelift - not a full redesign.

Thanks for the reviews! More feedback always welcome.

like the clean design, however load times for me were around 5 - 6 seconds on the majority of pages, though I am in Australia so that maybe why.

That is why. Hosted in the USA.

I like that you've stayed in line with your previous design, I like it a lot!
Load time is also really good (Tested from Europe) :)

The little line under the menu items looks strange after the sub-menu drops down.

Maybe set the line to disappear after the sub menu drops down?

This has been done. However only the line on the corresponding dropdown.
I.e http://i.imgur.com/ey0UuUG.png
But not http://i.imgur.com/v7Ksg2B.png and vice-versa

The slider has also been modified to be a touch smaller.

Thanks for the tips & feedback.

Nice and trendy. Load time is not extremely good but acceptable.

WebHostGlobeCom 07-23-2016 10:50 AM

Loading speed is a bit slow at the beginning but after loading, the site displays all the information at one glance which visitors could see as they scroll down the page.

CDNgine 07-23-2016 11:25 AM

Nice and clean, loaded fine for me, seems to get everything presented effectively.

WalnutHost 08-11-2016 04:32 AM

Minimal changes, yet love the simplicity of the design. It's very professional and neat. So easy to navigate as well.
