vogella.de design update

I updated the design of vogella to make the navigation simpler. I basically simplified the top menu and added a few more sub-categories, e.g.

Tutorials
Blog, Social and About page
Books

I also highlighted my Eclipse RCP and Android trainings and my books on the homepage.

This is the old homepage:

This is the new homepage:

And here is my new tutorial category selector.

I’m planning to do more work for example the individual categories pages needs an update, e.g. Android Tutorials.

A big thanks goes to the great designer Günther Beyer from http://www.opoloo.de/ who gave me valuable feedback to my webpage design. Unfortunately Günther is currently busy therefore I did this re-design myself. Obviously Günther would have done it much nicer.

I also would like to thank Tom Schindl for pointing me to http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/ for great CSS templates.

I hope you like the new design. Let me know your thoughts.

    Great work, but please remove the titles from the containers.
    They are really annoying.
    Makes it hard to read.

  4. Lars Vogel says:

    @Danut: Can you give an example?

    If there is title on ALL the elements, the tooltip appears all the time, obscuring the actual text.
