Basilmarket website re-design concept Screen

By SpearCrusher

SpearCrusher Level 19 Scania
Aug 12 2013 Done in Photoshop from scratch on a 1280x720px canvas (720p HD resolution). Symbols/icons such as the comment bubble, magnifying glass, etc., were taken from Google or Basilmarket itself. These are the only sections done so far. The listings forum will be where the thief forum is now. It's by no means perfect or near complete yet either. In fact, I may or may not decide to finish it.

The main purpose behind me making this was because I feel that Basil needs a revamp itself The site now is not bad by any means, but I think it's time to upgrade to a new more modern, sleeker look. The picture slideshow can also be used to host advertisements, maple news, etc., as well. The other two on the left and right can be modified to do the same too. I know that the titles of the SS' and videos are too small. I had to scale it down to fit Basil's dimensions and byte limit.

*NOTE: THIS IS JUST A CONCEPT, IT'S NOT AN ACTUAL DESIGN THE WEBSITE WILL BE UPGRADING TO UNLESS MR. BASIL WOULD LIKE TO USE IT (PM ME). I HAVE MANY OF THE DIMENSIONS FOR EACH PART, BUT NEGLECTED TO GET SOME/KEEP TRACK OF SOME DUE TO LAZINESS AND THE SHEER AMOUNT OF WORK.

+2 Looks like an app. Basil Market Windows 8 version.
Personally I like how Basil's not "sleek" or "smooth" with gradation, rounded corners and bright colours and all. I don't know, I guess it's not really my thing. But it should be noted that I'm no front page dweller at all, so changes to the front page don't typically affect me. XD
Nonetheless it doesn't look bad at all, it'd make a great mobile version.

This version is better but I dislike the colors.

Well you can suggest it to Mr. Basil as a new updated mobile version. However, it would need an overhaul to run smoother so it doesn't crash and reduce lag. Preferably a sidebar, but the forums can go straight down through the screen.

EDIT: I made the design flat at first, using Basil's colors, but it didn't look right on my screen. I would have actually preferred it flat myself, but it just didn't look right. And by no means does modern mean it has to have gradation. Many of the best are flat designs, but I had to work within I guess the "shell" of what was already there. Couldn't make any drastic movements/changes

Bright colors are unappealing and "too bright".
Forum section should be the centerpoint, the most noticeable thing.[/quote]

That's actually a good suggestion, thanks! Didn't really notice, but it would look nicer. Only thing is I'd have to change the spacing (which will be hard to do correctly). The blue and orange could be toned down a bit for sure and the yellow is ugly to me. I only put the yellow because the top part of it is the same color to what's on the site now and I had to match the theme. Couldn't have rounded boxes, then just a flat one, wouldn't look right.

The colors are the same as Basil itself, only thing is that a gradient was added so it seems darker/lighter on some. The yellow on top is the exact same for instance. The blue however was lightened, but I find it too bright now myself. The orange could be replaced as well. Tried to keep the same color scheme while making it work
