We have been working to complete a new design and private admin area for a new client and all of my usual "opinion givers" are on vacation - so Justin - I hope you don't mind if I ask for input - if so I guess you can delete me

Here is "old" (still showing as client has not seen it yet)
Our redesign and database functionality added for trees/pricing/specials

If you do partake in giving your opinion and see issues - please tell me what browser you are using - we just fixed a firefox issue and hopefully we have them all worked out!

Hey Lorri-
I use Firefox and much preferred the revise to the original. The new one pops more and the availability section is much clearer. I'm not very technical, but I hope that helps a little.

Good luck!

Hi Lorri,
I use IE7. I like the second one better as well. The descriptions of the business are sincere but not too wordy, not sure if they're part of your work also. A bit more of a separation(not spaces) between the right panes and the larger left pane might work, bolder lines around the boxes whatever, IE7 shows them as all the same sort. It's not a detraction, I just wonder if it might work with a different feel with the " all about us" box. Regardless, the new and improved is excellent compared to the first. The picture (very nice choice) sets well at the top and everything you need to now is situated in a friendly manner immediately below left. The owner should be happy, please let us know his/her reaction.

Thank you - the photograph will eventually change - just part of our stock - they actually want to do a video tour of the nursery and at that time we will take new stills and probably incorporate flash where the static photo is so that it is of their trees

Thanks for the input and anyone else who wants to weigh in - great!

I think the update is definitely more professional-looking. I like all the contact info at the bottom of the home page. I like the price page, too. It's so detailed - really makes me want to buy some trees

The picture on the home page is just lovely, by the way!

Hi, Lorri,

The navigation on the second is better, plus I like the appearance and layout better. The background is easier to read the text than the original black text on white. I like that the navigation buttons on the vertical list on the left remain when you click on a secondary page and don't have to keep returning to the home page.

I couldn't tell much difference between the page showing the list of trees and the page showing what's available. I wonder if there's some way you could show a designation on one page showing the list of trees and have an icon beside the name indicating that they are available.

I like the window you can click to get more details on the tree.

Nice work!

Agree with the above. The new one is much better eye candy.

Very nice. Definitely a major leap forward. The only issues I saw were ones the company, not you might want to consider.

Tuzilla - please feel free to PM me - basically I've looked at this as completely new and we are solving several issues to save them money - and I'm not a nursery expert - if you feel that they are something good. I have a list of things I want to see them do, but I have to finish the meta tags/keywords & such - mostly it's the cosmetic now

thank you!
