…but perhaps you have a preference?
Someone told me the other day that I really needed to do something about this site, because nobody likes reading light text on a dark background. I’m inclined to respect his opinion because he’s the Head of Digital (i.e. web design) at one of the top 20 design agencies in the UK.
The WordPress theme I’m using – Structure, in case you were wondering – lets me switch very easily between light-on-dark and dark-on-light. I chose light-on-dark because it’s more eco-friendly – a monitor displaying a black webpage consumes less energy than one displaying a white webpage (if Google.com was black instead of white, global energy consumption could be reduced by something like 3000 megawatt-hours a year). But if light-on-dark is putting people off visiting, well, then the whole site’s a great big waste of energy.
So it’s poll time. Click the thumbnails below to see how a typical page would look in each colour scheme, then scroll down to the poll and vote for your favourite. Whichever scheme has the most votes when the poll closes on Wednesday 22 September is the one I’ll go with from now on.
