    New forum design ideas.

    Chalex and I have been discussing paying for a custom made design for the ATK website, with a professional designer making the layout, template, etc, while I'll design all the pretty bits, i.e the actual colours and style of the site, like the buttons and header. This will save money since the designer will only be doing half the job.

    The reason for deciding this is that our current design is free, so many other websites may have it as well, and in my opinion it's a tad too 'loud' repetitive. Paying for a design specific to us will make ATK look more professional, hopefully attracting more members.

    Anyway, you're the people who are going to be using the site and forums, so it's basically down what the new design will look like.

    So post any ideas you have, may it be about colour schemes, dimensions and size, differences it should have from our current design, or links to any other websites that you like the look of.

    I think that maybe we could have some very diverse ideas. Instead of blocks and such have diffrent shapes. Maybe a abstract feel. Also i think maybe black background with some silver would look nice.

    Basically so it looks like your painting? (In joke.)

    I like the idea of a black and red colour scheme, it worked for DutchDesignz.

    instead of having things boxed off? why not round the edges off so it gives a more smoother and cooler look?

    I really don't want a dark design, unless somebody can show me one that's been done well and looks good.

    Black and red are used too much. Green and black looks cool, and while we're at it let's change the Community's name to Viper's Venom Community XD

    The entire community should be bloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. (Preferably baby blue, it goes well with pink and yellow).

    Baby blue, pink and yellow. Only real men would use those colours!

    TBH, I agree, it looks nice as it is. I don't think it's too loud. But I would also be more than happy to try out some new colour schemes providing they look good.

    The site is awesome as it is, however the template we are using is a free one, therefore lots of other people have it, what Chalex/Chazlene want to do is purchase a unique template for ATK. TBH money can be better spent.

    If pink goes into the site I will refuse to use it, purple and baby blue are bearable but pink=CHAV!

    I still think sliver and black would look good
