Most of the problems should now be fixed
It’s huge on larger screens mainly because we designed it to be responsive and fluid width so that it adapts to your window size. It gets outrageously huge at 2000px, though, so that’s where our max-width is set.
While making your website, keep in mind the people that know nothing about FIRST that will be viewing your website. You should make sure that those people know what you’re talking about as quickly as possible.
The design of the home screen is too overwhelming. Try to get lots of information that’s easy to read with minimal scrolling. It would be better if you balanced out the white space on either side of your screen. Near the top, there is no white space on the sides, and going down there is increasing space. What you could do is compress the banner and nav bar on the top to allow some white space and so people won’t need to scroll. Further down with content, scrunch some information together to remove some of the white space.
So there’s my candor. It’s a really good website, don’t get me wrong. Also make sure you’re updated on this year’s game.
We took a lot of your guys’s advice! I really appreciate your help in our website design process!
We somewhat de-cluttered and reorganized the home page, made FIRST a bigger priority and a more emphasized part of the website, and introduced some more information about the team to the home page. In addition, we’ve reverted to our original plan to have whitespace on the sides of the page instead of a 100% width homepage!
