I wanna know what you guys think about this theme. Is it cute? Or is it too distracting? I’ve always been a fan of VERY minimalistic designs, but I thought since I run a “kawaii blog” maybe I should try out the “cutesy” look.
I dunno if you’ve ever visited my site before or not – so here are some screenshots of our most recent theme before the switch. As you can see it was all free roaming white spaces, without a background, or without being “boxed in”.
Which do you prefer? the old theme in the screen shots below? Or the new “cute” theme?
If the background image here was grey scale and/or transparent, would that make it less distracting for you?
🙂 Let me know your thoughts.
EDIT: I noticed that in Mobile (Iphone) that the background image does not display in portrait mode – and in landscape mode the background fills in as a header image. So if viewing on a mobile device you may not know exactly what I’m talking about 🙂
EDIT 2: I made it a lot more “muted” in color – and I like it a lot better now. I think I’m finally “happy” with it – but I’m still open to feedback. 🙂
