    I created a new website with some friends about trading systems and stock analysis. We're designer N00bs.

    I spent a suprisingly long time reworking the header, and the littlest things can make a world of difference. I wonder what else I should improve to make it more usable.

    Also, is the color scheme to drab?

    Lastly, do you get it? The concept I'm trying to convey might be a little opaque, so I'm not sure if I'm conveying the value proposition of the website very well. What would you impove?

    Thoughts?

    I love it! I've had to go back to it, I still can't quite put my finger on it but it's magic.

    I added a blue module. Hopefully that makes our site clearer. Does it?

    My gf thinks it might be too big . ..

    Just had a round of usability studies. Turns out our last design was pretty bad. Amazing what you learn by watching your users.

    After a lot of work, and design reviews, we think we have something much cleaner, easier to use, and easier to understand.

    See our new design:

    Do you have any advice on anything else we can improve?

    Our main questions are
    1) What is confusing?
    2) What features are missing that a user might want?
    3) What can we improve in general

    Let us know what you think.

    One of our design friends gave us some quick tips and ideas.
    Implemented most of them, and the homepage looks a lot more professional.

    Would love some thoughts on what else we can improve on.
    Also, does anyone know of any websites that have a really usable homepage.
    Preferably, something that operates under the Freemium or Subscription business model, but we're interested in looking at examples of anything that isn't a blog.

    I think it's a really pretty site, but a little too "Web 2.0" to take it seriously as a financial site.
