    Work in progress for my company, the bg used to be maroon, but the CEO thought it was too dark, bleh. :greddy:

    with the blue background, the maroon text looks out of place.

    Not bad, but the dark background and then white area in the middle is really stresseful on the eyes.

    :werd: Maybe you should change all the maroon to the same blue?

    Either that or the same red that's in the StudioCRM logo.

    I would tend to agree, I think the red background was the best from a marketing standpoint, and I had built all the graphics and text styles to work with it. Now that it's blue, I'd have to go rerender all the header graphics etc (some of the crappier ones were stolen from our old site).

    Oh well, management made the decision, not me :hsd:

    How about using a gradient background instead of a solid colour one? You could go from a dark blue to a light blue, or grey to white might look better. Thats if the management lets ya!

    Yeah, I tried a few gradients, but the whole point of the background being red was to make the page pop and have contrast.

    The gray text at the bottom looks off. Too big and too dark a shade of gray. :dunno:

    I would probably use a light grey color for the background instead of that dark blue, or that light purple/blue/grey color (sorry, I'm color blind) that are below the buttons on the right. Imo that would look better than that dark blue color as a background.
