the design is pleasant those colors however(purple,red,blue text and dark shadow) are to dark for my taste, try same colors, but more balanced in brightness Flat Color Picker

but the icons and the rest looks in their place :) nice template


P.S just visited the website.... try with a fullwidth Layout also maybe? the middle canvas thing its not really that cool, its more of a 90's shape ... cause everybody had 5 inch displays and did not know how to stretch the layout.

see this for example some old project i worked at Website Template

@gamecorpstudio - Thanks for your feedback, I'll fix those later.

However, does long shadows still trendy right now? I've decided to create a long shadow effect on my icons.

well depends on the shadow... right now the trend on websites is around Minimalist designs and flat Ui colors... the best and most pleasant are those who match that category and nails the flat color pallet.

you have a good layout assembly, but colors and shadows are not ok with it mainly cause the colors are to dark and the shadow is/was again dark... also see for reference www.scirra.ro or www.scirra.com they look clean simple pallet colors etc.. most websites this days are using the same tehnics

@gamecorpstudio, @MatheusCastellar - I've updated the screenshot on the OP with the latest revamp.

What do you think, isn't it a bit minimal?

much better its looking good, but there is always space for improvement... for example i love all the shadows areas and the aspect how it gone till now, but all those shadows facing in same direction its repetitive its turning the beautiful design to something ordinary... try playing around with the shadows maybe place them at different angle or maybe remove some of them on some sections ... also you are missing some extra stuff between the areas which are called transition spaces... so it doesn't become to crowded. for example : section1 , space with some small info or a random image that represents ur activity ... 2nd section, space/ 3rd section ,space etc

website for reference https://www.construct3.com/

the transition spaces are also called parallax areas where you can customize them with a background image that moves weirdly the other direction and gives this animated look to the website and also creates a bit more room between the information you put in front of your customers... you have to give a bit more time to reach to the other section like a small 30 second tv commercial between the shows... you want to see the show episode after episode but your mind will need a short brake to process all that info...same applies here and not only to websites or tv commercials....

well these are my suggestions ... with a bit more polishing and attention to details you get there :)
that if you want to have it in that manner... you can always go with the arcade small version you had before but you have to take again in consideration what works with it ...
for example see http://www.miniclip.com dont mind the game lists being cluttered look at the color patterns the white on edges is different then the middle one all colors combined together look perfect and fits their services.. :)you just have to find your own if you dont have it already as an image in your mind. keep at it for sure your on the right track :D

also check http://www.itunes.com also for a more crowded without so many animated parallax areas but again they have just 2 3 sections maybe the color pallets you have is not working or those shadows ... gives the impressions there should be a space between them.

also more websites you can look at http://www.swypcard.com/ https://www.pebble.com/ sorry for listing all this big companies but they are the leaders of website designing and everybody is doing what they are doing now a days. unless you have a exact old style in mind, classic one.


P.S you can also add the link of the website to the OP so you dont have to re-upload images everytime.
P.P.S the parallax areas is a suggestion mainly because the website its multicolored... if you wold have it in 2 tones or 3 tones the parallax areas are not needed. since the colors wold not be so hard to look at them when you transitioning (cause every section you read its a different color and the eyes have to adjust to that area and its kinda hard for most people). this is called pattern recognition is used in music industry as long as fashion, website designing etc... when your eyes anticipates what color or you anticipate what sound might come next thats easier for people to look at a product... for example you have a 2 tone website where you have 1 multicolor parallax area and 1 black and white one the brain already knows after the white and black comes something colorfull so your prepared while on your end you dont expect the blue after the yellow or the green after the blue... plus the shadows are distracting on dark areas like the dark blue

hope the insight helped you :) sorry if its to much info. but when i like something that i do i cant help it ahahah :roll: :lol:

@gamecorpstudio - Unfortunately, my current WordPress theme doesn't have support for parallax areas. But, I'll try to modify the website a bit.

The color theme for my website will be blue and pink.

EDIT: Just finished modifying, what do you think? How about you, @MatheusCastellar?
