Taking this website to the next level (3 posts)

    Hello everyone!

    I was wondering if I could get some tips as to how to bring this website to the "next level."

    http://tinyurl.com/6mxlch2

    Essentially I would like to get this more user friendly and more 21st century look while being very clean at the same time. This currently uses the Coraline theme.

    Many thanks!

    Here is something to start with. There's also a nonprofit gallery there that you can visit to get some ideas.

    A couple of thoughts:

    The red background doesn't work for me. It's too rich a colour, both distracting and somehow inappropriate in my view. What's wrong with white?

    The donate button should be a contrasting colour.

    You should probably invest in a logo. The typeface of your site name looks a bit dated. If you have a clear idea of what you want, you could try to get a designer on fiverr.com to make one. Otherwise try to find a designer who will create an original logo, perhaps on a pro bono basis, or in exchange for a link from your site. You could try to find one Twitter?

    Centred text looks amateurish. Set it left.

    Watch your spelling. eg http://www.rfahaiti.org/2011/12/new-house/ (it's successful).

    On the above page, use the images bigger and move at least one of them to the top of the page so readers are not just looking at a slab of text.

    Hope this is useful. If you want to critique back, this is my WordPress site: [link moderated - if you want to show your site off, please start your own topic in 'Your WordPress']
