Info on home page mock-up

This mock-up does not include background images, header (logo & sign in/out), or footer (about us, contact us, licenses, AddThis widget), or side-bar (another section).

I have created this mock-up based upon Kara's mock-up based upon the study group she had. More tweaking is needed . . . this is really more about layout. I know some adjustments are needed with images and some links. It also does not have the suggested changes to the side-bar which includes the navigation.

How about the "buttons" being the color of the footer (where "About Us", "Contact Us", etc. are) and the "Featured Articles" & "Toolbox" being the color of the header (where the FamilySearch logo and Sign In/Out is). This would allow the "buttons" to still have normal link colors and add some other color to the other boxes? The thing I do not like about the "buttons" is that they do not necessarily look like links. Thomas_Lerman 00:43, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
I have tweaked all of the images. The only thing left here are the "buttons". The number of images on the top has increased from 3 to 5. Thomas_Lerman 23:00, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Color Options

Below are some options that include other possibilities for the "buttons" and the column headings:

Comments on color options

  • Buttons: I personally prefer the ones in Option #1 and #2 as they still look and act like links.
  • Headings: I suppose it is six of one and a half dozen of the other (between #1 & #2). Maybe #2 just slightly more as it stands out.
