The first thing I noticed about the Scorecard website was the awful color scheme. The pastels give the website an old, out-dated feel and do not really hold any character for the organization/site. The second thing: Where is the primary navigation?! It is not on the side, that is just a guide to different discussion topics. The global navigation is actually below the scroll at the very bottom of the page, just above the footer. This interface looks very unprofessional and obsolete. All of the links are blue text and no effective action buttons are present.
As for the Yanko Design web site, the texture of the background works extremely well with the color scheme of this page. The navigation is in an easy-to-spot location and is highlighted by the first item in the list, which appears most important. The site as a whole appears very modern and well designed. It is a good representation of this company’s identity.
