We want to go more fun, airy, sleek, cool.. right now our current design matches too much with another design we use for our 3D academy. We have 2D and 3D academies and we want to make our 2D classroom (student log in page) stand far out from our 3D (student log in page). We are currently using the same color schemes for both, and we feel it's a bit confusing and kind of boring that both our academy websites are using the same schematic.
For our 2D site (which is what this contest is about), we want to go with a lighter background and make our header bar (the navigation bar area inside the classroom) a different color.
They can be:
-Something other than blue but more on the warmer side
For the background:
-Light grey, white, pale colors (desaturated)
-Can be textured or have a light graphic
-Can be a color other than grey as long as it looks nice and easy on the eyes
For the smaller elements (icons, tabs, buttons, etc):
-Keep our top navigation icons the same
-Feel free to change any other icons and buttons
-Keep the schematic of our tabs the same, but change their skinning (they are our main function tools that need to be consistent).
This is basically a reskin (of our student log in page) so if we can keep that in mind during the process, that would be appreciated. We're open to any extra stuff, but keep in mind that we're needing this to fit in with the tools and functionality of what we have currently.
