I'm doing some freelanced work for my old company. The original design was a horrible looking MS Word file that I inherited. I hate that Word file, Word was not made for anything other than writing paragraphs.
I'm about to propose this design to substitute the old one. It's simple, but, that's where my company likes to be. More importantly, however, it's flexible. If I have more news, I can just play around with the squares.
I'm still not sure how you're actually gonna go into the links to read the reports, but I'm working on some alternatives. Maybe, it's gonna be a light box, or maybe it will take you to a different page. Who knows.
In any case, I received some criticism that the sales people couldn't read the Word file on their Blackberry phones, so I made a mobile layout just for them.
What do you guys think?
I will leave the title typeface as it is, Museo. But for the body of text, I might change it to a sans serif version of Museo.
I was also thinking about how to deal with the navigation, last night I thought of this.
It's light box that will appear in the right side of the page displaying the content of what ever news the user clicked on. This way, I can keep my users in a single page and I can avoid the whole "please put a home button" discussion that I know will ensue.
So how would you propose this could be improved?
Also, what do you have against meso-america ese?
On a serious note, I don't see anything wrong with museo either. Maybe with the exception of the 'X' in the top right corner. It sticks out compared to every other interface where the "exit-'x'" or whatever it's called is just a plain X without any asymmetry.
edit: I'm referring to the most recent picture.
