    Orange or Blue ??

    The orange version is what is currently on the page, the blue is the update. Im converting everything to css and trying to figure out a good color scheme.

    hmmm... both are very nice. the orange is different. not many hosting/design sites have that color.

    the blue is nice too... not sure about the green hover in the menu tho but... it's good.

    tough call... seriously... i don't know.

    I prefer the orange - blue's getting a bit too common for my liking.

    Why not a combination of the two? Orange and blue complement each other very well. If you didn't want to do this then I'd be forced to chose the orange myself as this feels more welcoming.

    I agree with Karinne about the hover state for the navigation hyperlinks, the colours seem out of place and the yellow on white appears scarcely legible.

    On another note, I'm not certain exactly how you've formatted the text on the blue version but it's painful to read. Letter spacing in a heading might look more sophisticated but it shouldn't be applied to general page copy. The justified paragraphs also make things harder to read because of the uneven word spacing.

    I like the orange. It's pretty difficult to use orange effectively and non-abrasively. Blue is everywhere! All of the properties of blue make it far more accessible. In other words, I have nothing against the blue, I just think the orange is more unique, has more flare, and above all, makes the site stand out against competitors.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.
