We’re thrilled today to share the new revamped SOMEContrast site with all of you dear readers. We’ve been working with a talented group of people from a local design company, Circus Branding Circle, and we’re very proud to finally share the results.

We’re also excited to get your feedback and reactions to the logo, the layout, the colors and basically the whole look. So! Do tell! What do you think?

    Congratulations…..

    But i really do have a suggestion. The Top Banner is way too big, it occupies a lot of space….The color….well its a matter of personal choice…!!If the main color was black with the purple lines….it wud have been even better!!!

    WOW WOW WOW! Mashalla IYANIN! The design company thought of the zebra’s behind concept? Well whoever thought of that lots of kudos to him/her because I just love it! I like that it’s a zebra because of your blog title being about contrast and I love that it’s giving us its behind because it’s quirky and humorous. That’s my favorite thing actually about the whole change. A7is it’s just the kind of fun, teasing, playful kind of logo that suits this blog. OO 6ab3an il alwaan as much as it seems like it ought to be busy-looking it’s actually not! Who ever thought that black, white, purple and green would make for a catchy combo! Ba3dain I like how in the head banner the black/white is fading into the green near the microphone so imbayyin chinna 9ada 9ot! La2 9ijj guys mashalla mashalla bravo 3ala whatever “talented group of people” who worked on this li2anhum fi3lan bada3aww mashalla :)

    Sorry, one more thing, I read Eddy’s comment and I couldn’t agree more because the logo really is total worth making it bigger. Qasdi yiswa inaa yseer more central. Ya3ni lo bidaal ” Say” tsawoon il logo ath5am and more central tarawali a7la. Bass ham 7ilo as is.

  13. Sadachbia says:

    Love the colors! the purple, black and green go well together :)

    I do, however, agree with ‘My name is bond’ with the banner being too big. As readers, we have to scroll down a ways just to see the first post. Also, don’t know if this was intentionally done or not, but archives is spelt ‘archides’

    anyways good job to you guys and the designers!

  14. SooLong says:

    Sorry but I don’t like the new design…

    The colors hurt my eyes, and the banner with the mic is ugly.

    However, the logo is brilliant except for the zeebra’s ass which might be a little bit funny but inappropriate 😉

    Anyway, that’s just my opnion.

    BTW, you could dipose the banner with the mic and replace it with the zeebra’s banner (by enlargig it of course). For the colors, you could decrease the color intesity so that it becomes more “eye friendly” :)

    Excellent Work Team !

    I love the details, love how the ad section had different layouts.

    Aside from that, look on the top left, where it says email us, its a bit out of line. Thats my only concern.

    That being said, Mashalla the “contrast” is just mighty fine.

    More power to you !

    I agree with Eddy and my name is bond.

    Personally, i dont like purple/green..but the colors looked okay together..the zebra with the O is brilliant!

    anyway, dnt loose the mic, i loved it! just place it somewhere else.. OR you could shuffle the logo and the mic at the top of the page?

    You really have to work on it, i use a netbook, so imagine how it wuld feel like when i first open your blog -.-..scroll all the away :/

    Guys congrats!

    I have been following your blog for a long time and it was about time for change. Well done. I particularly like the new logo 😉 and agree with “My name is Bond” that the top banner is way too wide…

    Otherwise… good work and good graphics team!

    Nice design work but heres my feedback
    1. the banner is too big
    2. violet side bars don’t really gel with the other elements(unless you wanted ‘some contrast 😛 )
    3. ‘someone’s gotta say something’ is awkward with the upper case and lower case characters mixed up
    4. please add a comment subscription option to your blog or atleast an alert when a new comment is posted.
    5. ‘our recipes’ button is missing at the bottom
    6. the ‘d’ in advertise and ‘v’ in archives look like the same letter

  49. Miss-Informed says:

    Good effort but I don’t like the header at all. One word to describe the whole thing – it’s “too much”. I feel it’s “5ab9a” wayid. The colors are trying so hard to fit in with each other and the design where it says “say” and microphone looks wrong for some reason. Ironically I absolutely love the Zebra logo.

    If you take a look at your last post with the logo picture – regarding the announcement for the new design. The logo by itself without the green or Zain-replica spirals looks beautiful with a plain white background. It’s simple, creative and funky.

    If you’re interested in hearing a suggestion then I’d skip the header all together and just go with the zebra logo with a simple colored background, and go for simple icons/buttons without all the 3afsa. And just like some ppl here said, mabye darken the purple just a teeny bit.

  55. Amethyst says:

    I agree with Mark. It’s very ugly;\ The microphone is misleading, too.

    And Miss-Informed makes a good point. If you use just the logo on the top left corner with a plain purple background would look great. This is too much.

    My fave: the zebra concept!

    I know you guys are very excited about this, and I don’t wanna spoil the moment but I have to say that the only thing I like about the new layout is the LOGO .. very creative and meaningful.
    The colors remind me of Zain!
    and the mic banner (Rotana banner) is very distracting..
    I also don’t like how everything is shifted to the right instead of the left !
    I still love your blog and will continue reading it even if I have to stare at that banner everyday :)

  66. Jacqui says:

    From a creative aspect it looks creative and beautiful but from a design aspect is has some missing issues, for one thing the sidebar is in the wrong location. What you have here is an English blog, one mostly written in English to have the sidebar on the Left depicts that it would be great for writing arabic posts, to have it on the right would’ve made more sense.

    Remember our right hands are on our mice and we are lazy to go to the left side in order to navigate around the site.

    The purple around the edges are eating in from the content area’s space it would’ve been better served if it was around the header and into the Black Background area as to not affect much bcos it’s just aesthetic and not something that’ll mean much or serve a functionality.

    It just seems too busy for a blog, for a normal website it might be perfectly fine, but a blog it’s just too busy and takes away from blog’s simplicity to display information portrayed by its writers.

    Just my 2 cents.

  67. Abdulmohsen says:

    Congratulations!

    I loved the Zebra design and what it represented. The color theme is also a nice addition but I think you should reconsider placing the blogroll back on the right side.

    There also seems to be a mistake with the number of comments in this post.

  80. Abid says:

    Personally I read the RSS, but this design ****SUCKS BIG TIME****. :( :(

    What you had before was 1000 times better! :p

    1) The top banner/logo is too big
    2) font size for comments and posts is too small
    3) Purple and green doesn’t really work for me
    4) The letter “V” in archives at the left looks like a “d”
    5) The “postedbyYusuf” looks weird with no spaces between.
    6) what’s the purpose of the purple strips at the sides? for decoration? Might as well make the blog as wide as possible!
    7) For an english blog, the sidebar should be at the right, not the left.

    Sorry, but I agree with Mark here; this design could be much better 😉

    [Reply]

  81. TaB TaB AiE says:

    It hurts your eyes when you first open the page. The mic has to go in my opinion and as its in english the ads should be on the right not left, makes it easier to follow. Other than that keep up the good work :)

    For everyone who commented, thank you all for giving us your two cents (actually for some of you maybe it was closer to seven cents :) ) on the new website design. While some comments reflected their authors’ personal taste, others pointed out issues that really are problematic and that, if resolved, could really improve our readers’ experience when browsing our blog. We therefore decided to make some alterations to reflect some of the great remarks and advice we got. Having said that, much of the personal taste matters will remain the same as, overall, we’re loving our little makeover 😀

    Thanks guys, appreciate your input.

  96. Circus says:

    The blog rocks, you are in a world of your own, everytime i view your blog i feel im taken somewhere else. you really are standing out and very unique from others.

    the microphone for everyone wondering or stating that it needs to be removed, symbolizes the writers’ voices and opinions with the waves coming out to the left, and the waves coming out from the other side symbollize the effect of what the writers said on the world- which is basically all of your comments. there is a harmonious balance between the waves on the left and right side of the mic anad whats great is that it matches the slogan perfectly “someones gotta say something!”

    its very clear to see, especially if you had a sense of creativity.
    the logo is outstanding, the zebras ass is so strong and basically speaks on its own- again to symbolize freedom of speech.

    colors are wild and so are the patterns, overall matching the theme of the blog.

    Yousef and Mishari, congratulations on this perfect makeover- careful seems like you got alot of jealous haters out there, its okay this is Kuwait and if you have something gorgeous people will hate you for it rather than grow over their childishness.

    You couldnt have made a better choice, kudos to Circus!

    You guys are the talk of blog-town! Wish you all the best!

    the logo? im speechless, the zebra’s ass is my fav part and gives the logo a funny twist. i love the colors, i luv how the bold black n white stripes represent Y & S’s words, and how the green n white blury stripes represent the affect of the blog on readers.

    ads on the left, blog on the right side? i think that is so creative being different than the other blogs. and the layout on the whole is perfect, fresh and vibrant.

    blow horns for Circus! good luck guys!

    Mark We definitely disagree with that opinion. We actually allow a lot of comments that don’t reflect how we think. In fact we’ve got tens of negative comments on this particular post including yours, which of course we don’t agree with, and we allowed it to be published anyway. Having said that, we reassert that we do not AT ALL believe that you are against Kuwait or Kuwaiti talent. Hence that particular comment that we don’t agree with has been edited along with another more recent comment that also attacked you.

    DAMN! 117 comments! My hat goes off to you for handling THIS amount of negative comments in a cool headed manner. I read through and some people gave negative remarks with great tips but others weren’t remotely constructive they just sounded like airheads who woke up on the wrong side of the bed that morning à la ‘Haa? shinoo? new site design? la la 5ayis moo yayizli’. 3ISHTAW yal fananeen. Go get a clue. Again, bravo Yousef and Mishary your new blog rocks!

    Someopinion we do value your opinion and are happy you enjoy our blog but we had to edit your recent comment as it seems you might have something personal against Mark. Please email your remarks to him directly and not through our blog as we would like not to be involved.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Yousef for clearing your stance. There is nothing wrong in people (including me) who say they don’t like the new design. Its expected since its all a matter of taste. A ton of people hate my blog but I don’t go calling them childish or anti Lebanese lol

    man you guys, this is really bad.
    I liked the old one more. I dont understand why the banner has to be that big.
    Plus the mic and the curved lines and the “say” really nasty.

    i dont know mark personally, and from his hate to Kuwait , i wouldnt even want to know him, this is a major problem we have been having with his attitude towards us Kuwaitis! We salute all Kuwaiti efforts and he has to stop what he’s doing or find another place!

    shda3wa shsayer? Why is Mark attacking?!?! Oh I forgot, it’s Mark from 248am.com. And why is he also attacking the LeNotre owners? Mark please, keep your personal problems away, if you have any problems with the Lenotre owners, I am sure they are ready to solve it, and maybe legally.
    As others said, we do not want jealousy to spread here also. Keep it there dude.
    Peace guys,

    Lenotre: I don’t have a problem with LeNotre I actually enjoy their food on a weekly basis. My comment was on the attitude of the owner that posted on this blog before which you can read here: http://somecontrast.com/2009/05/31/bahrain-lilous-cafe/

    Yousef: While searching for the post above I noticed an issue with your search results. Its only displaying the headline and not the full post so its looking like something is broken.

    The logo is innovative, and original. I also like the design, you really out done your self.
    However, i did not like the line on the top banner, that seperates the waves coming out of the microphone with the logo.And the waves on the page’s bottom left. Other than that, its almost perfect.
    Good luck.

  134. We just wanted to inform you that your website loads really slow which is primarily due to the banner which exceeds the size of 450 kb. The maximum advised size should not exceed 70 kb.
