    ALL CAPS vs Sentence case in web design and site review

    Hi wdf. i am having a hard time trying to convince my client that all caps is a lot less legible then sentence case, it seems he wants to shout everything thats placed on the website. the subtitles in mobile view are what he wants all caps. ( you may have to shrink browers window to see this). please give your opinion on this and critque the website design as well ( please not that it is not finished e.g. menu and footer to come. and some color and grammar and a whole lot of typography changes are needed plus some links point to the old site) which case would you go for?

    I'll answer your first question first. All caps can be more difficult for people to read.

    It's tough to critique an unfinished layout as the content should drive the design and not the other way around, but with that said I don't think you're going down a good path. Staying on the topic of legibility and readability, white on yellow is incredibly difficult to read and creates accessibility issue. Given that you appear to be in England, this could be a major potential issue for your client in the Sue Me Sue You Era. Heck, the client's own van could lead to them getting sued. It sounds stupid, but it happens.
