Awesome concept Barbroute. It has great texture, love the simplicity and the navigation is creative and has characteristics. I love that search box, it makes me want to search. However, where's the 'submit' button?

The problem with the design lies in legibility like most submissions. You're using small text and they are barely recognizable because it blends it so nicely with the design. As content it doesn't stand out. I think bigger fonts and increased leading would improve legibility. The texture behind the text doesn't help either.

The other major issue is the logo. I could easily tell you have problems with the logo because it doesn't fit into the design. When given a logo, the website should reflect the logo and not the other way around. Corporate clients provide brand guides that you must follow keenly. In this case, you're creating a brand which I think you missed. The design comes across as a template where I just stick my logo inside.

I think that can be resolved by the usage of colours. You manage to use brown based on the overall colour of the logo but you missed the accent colour. By using that blue, it would create a more unified look and feel between the logo and layout.

The footer is nicely don't and great touch. I like the pagination design with exception of legibility issues I have. Overall great concept.

Thanks for entering. :)

Thank you for the feedback :)

Made a few changes such as : bigger fonts, darkening the content boxes and integrating the blue colour on the links :)

Thanks man, it's nice to see more integration of colour. I wanted to ask if it's possible to show how this design would look on a wider screen.

Holy crapper... I love this. Its interesting...

I love the text boxes too... my favourite part.

The only thing I can think of that I am not the biggest fan of, but still like none the less, is the logo. I don't think it pop's enough... but that could just be my screen... but I think it might need a bit light background.... slightly more contrast...
