Confessions of the Professions Semi-New Look

Confessions of the Professions Adds Top Bar

May 18, 2015 - We are always looking to improve our website and keep up to date with the latest trends in web design, while keeping our old fashioned simple look. For new trends, which began in 2014 and 2015, which focused on a whole new insight into marketing and branding, there was always an issue when scrolling through a website, the most important part would disappear from view. It is not that it needs to be in constant view, but it does help. When you drink a Pepsi or a Coca Cola, the logo is always on the bottle, ever present for you to look at while you are drinking it. When you are driving your car, the logo of the car you are driving is usually always on the steering wheel. When watching a YouTube video, the YouTube logo will never leave your vision. Everything you use and do is almost always branded with a logo. These are marketing efforts and attempts to get you to remember the company product to which you are using or consuming so that you will remember it. Why is this so important?

Most web designers understand when you visit a website, you probably know exactly where you are, but it keeps the freshness of the logo in your head. This is extremely important as it emphasizes branding and marketing without really trying. This method of keeping a top bar whenever scrolling usually gives you, not only access to the logo, but the navigation menu as well. We are proud to present to you our new look, which is the trend for websites. It is not that we want be like every other website, but we are happy to keep up with the times for web design.

Our header, which included the logo and navigation menu would disappear from the view when you scrolled down to read the article. While this was okay for some time, we feel that moving forward with this new design technique is inevitable. We are happy with Confessions of the Professions and glad that it will now follow you, somewhat unobtrusively while you read our confessions. We have taken two screen shots so that you can recognize what we have done, from our old look, to our new look.

For those of you who preferred our old look, we really appreciate it and love the fact that you enjoyed our old design, but we do feel that moving forward, our new design is more appropriate and accommodating for all of our visitors on all devices. On our new top bar navigation area, the logo has been made smaller, and the navigation menu will now travel with you as you scroll through the page.  Love it? Hate it? Let us know what you think of the new design!
