    hello this is my first post so i apologize if this is the wrong section
    :s

    anyways this is a design preview of a website i may or may not complete for my friends and i's server. i kind of just created it off of a whim and had fun with it.
    feedback and criticism are appreciated ok

    uh also i'll call it maplegalaxy bc it's lit like the galaxy

    it's only the homepage btw bc i'm kind of a loser nd didn't feel like going in depth atm but if i finish other pages later and organize the layers i'll update this nd show the other pages!

    Good to see something new posted here.

    The biggest weakness of both these designs is font choice. Both sites display inconsistencies with fonts, and just poor font choice in general. Your fonts are noisy, and borderline unreadable. Check out this answer from graphicdesign.stackexchange for more pointers.
    Second, I think your color choice is a little uninspired. The dark website looks much nicer in terms of color choice, but the Nova site looks "drab" with the choice of green. Relying on borders to separate content components doesn't look great. I spent a couple minutes shifting some colors around:


    I've always found sites like Coolors.co and Adobe Color helpful when picking color palettes. I think if you revised the shades of green you use, this site would look much better!

    Lastly, I think if there was a little more thought put into design decisions, both of your designs would look more refined. Think why each element is there, and the purpose it serves (eg. why is there a random cat image to the right? what purpose should it serve?).

    Overall, this is a good start to designing sites. I'm sure you won't agree with some of the things I said, but check out the links and hopefully, you'll find them useful! Keep up the design work!

    Cute, similar to the old websites haha
    Anyway, change the font in Galaxy, it doesn't really suite the website, it's not suited for web, especially not as the primary font.
    The latter I didn't really like personally although the concept is really cool in my opinion, it's just too much green tbh...

    Actually, I agree with most of what you've said. A couple of my friends said that they couldn't read event/news, heh, so the font probably needs to be changed. It's probably a bit too artsyish for the website!

    The colors, completely agree... Honestly, the hardest thing about the first website was the colors for me, I just felt like everything was too open and felt like I was leaving so much space......

    True af tbh I have no clue why I have the cat there.. I could probably use it with a chat bubble to announce server downtime, important events, or something else.
    Also, those websites are pretty cool! Thanks!

    Thankies!
    Yeah, I'll have to toy with the font, and I agree about the old website!
