We are looking to give Facingacne.com a facelift. What we have in mind is widening the site enough to allow for a larger font to be used as we feel the current one is too small. Also, we want to move away from small pictures in articles to instead have them span the entire text area.
Three pages need specific attention:
The home page: https://www.facingacne.com/
Posts: Example: https://www.facingacne.com/lemon-ju…duce-acne/
Review pages: Example: https://www.facingacne.com/exposed-…re-review/
We are inspired by the design on https://www.healthline.com/ and feel we could successfully use the same fonts on Facingacne.com. Also, the idea of getting rid of the top menu in favor of a menu with icons in the sidebar (https://www.screencast.com/t/35BdFDHBCh70) is something we'd like to try in this new design.
Furthermore, in the header on Healthline.com they have a 'Topics & Tools' link that folds out a menu. We would like the same and basically have the categories that we currently have in the sidebar instead be placed in a similar fold-out menu.
Please note: We do need to keep the text as is on all pages on the site, including the homepage. Design improvements in the text area should be in the form of a better looking and larger font, larger images, appealing captions under images, nice looking subheadlines, nice looking quotes, and nice looking comment section on posts. On the homepage, we particularly want the comparison chart to look better. I prefer the sidebar on the same side as the menu. It is very important that the 'Recently reviewed' section in the sidebar jumps out at people. As far as the logo is concerned, it's OK to try and remove the little face in the logo and just keep the text.
80% of our traffic comes from mobile phones and as such it's really important that the mobile version of the site is attractive and engaging. Again we feel they have done a great job on Healthline.com and we feel the same layout could work well for Facingacne.com
