I know there’s a thread similar to this, but I’m talking about a Global Nav-Bar, versus a forum-nav bar. I mean one that shows up at the top of the page. There’s already that thing that looks like a confused equals sign, but I personally think it should be expanded, sort of like this:
(From my website)
It would have a layout similar to this:
Home || Forum || IRC || Get Involved || About
Let me know if you have any suggestions.
This is definitely doable with Discourse, but I’d wait until there is actually something else to link to…
Looks like Helvetica to me at first glance, though I haven’t checked
Could possibly be Helvetica Neue / Neue Condensed
Edit: This one? Helvetica Condensed
Honestly I’d love to see the global and forum bar as a flat UI design. Possibly use the color #f1c40f as the background, and #f39c12 as the secondary border. Both are shades of yellow used in flat UI.
Edit: It would look something like this [click on it to enlarge]:
I think the yellow should not be as saturated. Possibly a lighter tint as to not drown out the other elements… Or perhaps darken the other elements so they’re still noticeable. Either/or, I agree that a yellow-based colour scheme would be more fitting.
I believe the “confused equals sign” button was created for mobile users. I have no evidence to support this idea but it does allow mobile users to navigate the site without clutter. I myself wouldn’t mind having a navigation bar as long as it follows the colour scheme of the forums, which I hope would be yellow as opposed to grey like it is now.
Eh, good point. I like the idea of a more vivid yellow.
As do I. It’s just hard to see the light grey star next to the Meta tag and the grey buttons to the top-right corner just don’t fit well.
Totally agree. I only changed the color scheme of the actual background [meaning I didn’t work on the buttons, logo, or anything else hehe]. I was thinking they did a more vivid yellow, and nice contrasting black(ish) color - of like #333333.
White is Helvetica Condensed.
That necro, tho. <3 Is this still a pastability? Cause greasemonkey could totally handle this. :3
