Disclaimer: I am not a graphics artist. And I cannot tell you what makes good art.

 

Allow me to mention my one criticism: a dark/light patterned background (the burlap) makes a base-layer for camouflage. The black lettering does not "pop" out. The eye sees something, but gets caught up at working out what the words should be.

 

Try adding a layer of the lettering on the header logo in bold white at 20% transparency (to let some of the background through), then put the normal weight lettering directly on top. That should increase the contrast.

 

Then, for the sidebox headers, I think there is a CSS trick that will add a drop-shadow effect (but in white) on the lettering.

 

Have you added any special functions to the core CubeCart?

Hi Noodleman,

I was just being nosey seeing the colour scheme on the pervious comment and found that when a product was added to basket the ajax worked on the product page I was on but then when I navigated to the basket I had a message that the basket was empty?

 

I'm was using IE 11 just thought I should let you know so you can check/investigate.

This is a current issue with IE11 - that is, the fault is with IE11. For some reason, IE11 refuses to send back cookies. We don't know why.

Hi,

 

Nice...I agree with bsmither. The sacking/burlap background does not work with the text sitting on it. Perhaps a change of text colour and/or font may help.
