    For all you web designers.... what do you recommend>?

    Well I workout at a local gym, and the owner asked me if I could make him another website basically following the following guidelines:

    Not dark... not using many of the black/red colors (my favorites to use)
    Not too flashy w/ flash animation etc (I love using flash doH!)
    Warm and welcoming, he said he'd rather attract mothers of kids than the pro fighters
    Easy for a grandma to navigate
    Hard for me to pick warm colors without getting dark? And not too bright either?

    So what I did was use a fixed pane on the side and the website would move... what do you guys think? Obviously many pictures need to be taken, so I can make a 3d virtual tour of the gym, and add trainer/fighter bio/profiles but it's kinda the idea

    www.theboxingzone.tk

    the original website is

    www.theboxingzone.com

    what colors should I use? What are good 3d virtual tour programs? Im use to using flash for making videos and stuff... what do you guys recommend? I use swish a lot also...
    I've helped with websites like this one
    but he says it's too dark, and he feels it would scare away the moms and just attract men/boys who want to fight (not as much $$ as the moms w/ millions of kids)

    I like yellow, gray combo with a bit of red. gray background, some text in yellow and a few
    details in red.

    also black background and white text sometimes used...

    I think women would like the red and white combo, maybe with a touch of blue.

    but most of the web applications I worked on are on white background/canvas. intranet apps mostly. my 2 cents.

    I'll see if I can dig out some old projects. I need to catalog stuff better.

    yeah border red. some text yellow (choose not too bright) just like the link in one of our sponsor's text in the thumbnail.


    and gray background (#CCCCCC)... see how that works.
