    Dilemma ?

    Greetings,

    A quite dilemma just popped out, i had two web designs designed for me, however i never had a chance to use them. I'm getting back intro web hosting industry and finishing up the website - however, there is quite dilemma now. I just simply can't choose which web design seems better, they both look good. I'm asking guys your help to help me decide.

    The niche I'm working on will be mostly local people, local small business, there might be some advertising online too, but not as much as local, this might be important.

    And for 2nd design, there will logo designed for it to match the design itself, and obliviously there will be some modification on both of them, like removing search function in 2nd design, and so on.

    Here they're -

    1st design, main page - http://i37.tinypic.com/14scimo.png
    1st design, sub page - http://i35.tinypic.com/2ytpgdf.png

    2nd design, main page - http://i33.tinypic.com/2iv1y0j.png
    2nd design, hosting plans - http://i34.tinypic.com/33caseu.png
    2nd design, about hosting plan - http://i37.tinypic.com/2ujjas3.png

    Any pointers, opinions or anything is more then welcome.
    Also, if there is design you like, but seems something missing, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I'm trying to make them, as good as they can get.

    Thank You!

    For my personal taste, Design 2 is the obvious winner.

    Design 2 is better....looks more professional. The first one looks like an overcomplicated template IMHO.

    I can see what you mean, but I still think it is just a coincidence of boxes are being in the same places

    Even the shines of the boxes (rounded shiny tops) are the same The roundness of the corners, the style of buttons etc. More than coincidence.

    Anyway, I presented my case. If the OP cares about it, good for him.

    I would vote for Design 1, it looks more original and pleasing to my eye. Design 2 is just generic and rather dull.

    Design two, using the logo from design one, possible scale the colour to suit the darker backdrop! Good luck with your venture!
