    I'm working on a new design called Techy. Here's a preview:


    What do you think?

    Looks great, I like the color combination and the navigation bar at the top there.

    I like it... just out of interest is this planned as a premium or free style? Either way nice colour scheem and nice to see people being inventive with the layout.

    Looks good, I also like the colour combination very much.

    Thanks, guys, I'm glad you like it. I'll be posting more screenshots as I get further into development.

    And Cezz, it will be a premium theme.

    Looks great, although I think having the navigation way up at the top might be a bit cumbersome - and where do you plan to put the sub-navigation links? :)

    I'm planning on having just the dropdown menus show for the navigation. And why do you think it would be cumbersome? Do you think it would be better lower on the page?

    I think that is one of the best styles so far for XF. Cant wait until its done.

    It may work out fine, I'm just thinking that it may be awkward at first until users get used to it, because the primary navigation typically isn't way up at the top of the page.

    That is most likely going to hamper the way people navigate the site. Everytime they wish to use What's New?, Mark all threads as read, or other links will require that they go to the dropdown.

    this is a brilliant idea i luv when designer change the look of the style, not the colors only
    i like where you place the alerts and member info
    You may want to invest the space between header and navigation

    Forsaken, thanks for the input; that's a really good point. I didn't think it would be that much of a hassle to have a dropdown but I'm guessing users want quick access to those links. I've redesigned the header to make the links more easy to access:

    I've reworked the page title and tables to make them much cleaner. Here's a preview:
