Great, much better, thanks for taking some feedback to heart and also adding some of your own flavour in the mix
As a web dev/designer I can’t help myself but to immediately go into feedback mode, so…
Some thoughts on my end:
Maybe cover image can be a slide show (I personally am not a fan of slide shows, but knowing we have so much great imagery, and that this particular cover image has been around for some time, perhaps it could at the very least be a different image each time), make sure visitor is exposed to some large tasty imagery
I think the flip cards in the beginning that shows the “tell me more” can go directly to the Forum Post, and that the forum posts have exaggerated typography, ie. much larger and extremely visible prices + way more images. Like if we are communicating an apartment.
Before the Flip Cards I think it could be beneficial with some additional text that informs the visitor what the Flip Cards hold and also the events, something that leads us into it. The Hero text is good, but there could be a bit more following it. Also, it could include some more clear Call to Action. It’s not obvious that this is a place where you can do some serious work, you still have to kind of search for it. The less clicks the better imo, and the more we can guide the user without them searching.
For instance, the “our mission is co-creation” part is somewhat hidden and we relies on the visitor even scrolling down that far, let’s have essential information straight up.
Would be nice if the whats going on-blocks where uniform in size, from hat I can tell it’s the title that doesn’t overflow: hidden
Search for Events is a bit redundant.
I’d put Partners and Collaborators at the bottom, it really breaks up the nice imagery atm, would be nice to simply just see the images and not have them too interupted by big blocks of either text or color.
Partners and collaborators is lacking a “t”
Would love a simple “Write Hugi or Hampus if you are interested in joining” - doesnt have to be your names, but this could be very clear and obvious. Might also be a call to action at the top of the forum posts.
I’m proposing just text that guides the reader into the Flip Cards, at this point, it’s more of a content/copy question rather than layout. What I’d like to read is a motivation for me to check out the different sections, perhaps somewhat targeted/call to action in relation to me reaching out - and that’s where the contact details (which can be brief) are presented.
I get the impression that Blivande is a great community, but not necessarily one that is the right one for me. What sets it apart from the Castle, Snickeriet, Stockholm Makerspace etc. Of course, I can figure this out by reading all the posts/content, but I might as well be told why it’s vastly superior
My comment was that the click-for-flip was unnecessary and that it could go immediately to the forum post. So, instead of 1) Pressing the Card and watching it flip and then 2) Seeing the “Tell me more!” button and clicking that - it directly go to the forum post.
Re: typography - adding to my “todo”!
Is this a technical thing or an image curating thing. I don’t have access to an image database, but I could help code a slideshow.
Perhaps the changes were not pushed? The Search Bar and the non-overflow:hidden is still present.
The contact block at the bottom assumes they have read so far since we REALLY want people to get in touch, I think it can be connected to a text block just before the Flip Cards.
I would skip the additional Frihamnstorget block, we want them to click it in the Flip Card, and it’s in the Forum Post that we bask in its glory.
Perhaps the parallax blocks could be given a bit more height, so they are more visible (the images). Possibly we would have to increase the drop shadow of the text as well (it’s a bit of a struggle to read - even with my 20/20 vision
Here are my arguments to anyone else reading this who wants to jump on the train
The expectation is that clicking any of those will provide me with more information, probably even images since it’s a big ol’ flip card with an image and text. Instead, I get a tiny amount of information and a somewhat obscure button that say’s “tell me more”. Obscure as the pointer icon appears on both the card and the black surface, without any indication as to which one is active.
In my mind I’m like “Yes, I want to know more, that’s why I clicked in the first place!”. And if I accidentally click wrong, the cards flip back, and I have to click it - yet again, and then do it right.
The Flip Card effect is (to me) somewhat outdated and belongs in the past - as many/most modern sites have a flatter approach, light - straight forward. Same goes for parallax, as they both share the same origin of 10-15 years ago (I remember heavily being asked to do Parallax sites in my early 20s). Not really an argument, more of a personal statement
Perhaps on Desktop you could set it to be a Hover, so the click is obvious? (compromise)
I understand the reasoning, however, I would argue that Frihamnstorget is such an impressive part of Blivande, and neither the tiny flip card nor the 40% visible image with somewhat difficult text on top does it justice. We could/should pick one, and put the weight there (IMO).
