It looks great to me, except for one issue. The contrast between the box around the active item on the second row and the header background color is too low to make the active item easily identifiable. The same goes for the box on the first row, but the underline makes it a non-issue. I recommend either adding an underline to the second row active item or selecting a better background color for it.

Can we insert a new css package easily? Perhaps I can merge Patternfly inside which will be very suitable for this case.

The footer links are useful but the footer itself has no presence.  Most dashboards will fill a page and with such a thin footer nobody is going to look at what is has to offer. So we can make the footer in a different color and noticeable etc or move the links to the header.

The current scheme seems a little buggy on FF. See how the top green bar is not stretched to cover the top of the oVirt logo.

Here's my take.

The line on the top is a little thicker than I like, but we have the same thickness in oVirt (I checked). I'm ok with shrinking it in both places.

I put in the logo from the oVirt login page. I added patternfly and bootstrap. Changed the font to OpenSans. Positioned things and fixed paddings. Changed the button and form field to patternfly type (blue button)

Looks very good now. I wonder how far are we from being ADA compliant (also a general question to our UI - I know Patternfly should help us there as well).


Best wishes,

Thanks everyone for the great feedback!

So there's two options I see now:
1) keep the default header scheme with white background, just add the project logo into the corner
2) try to adapt to the Patternfly scheme as used in oVirt's Admin UI currently.

I've swapped the header background color to #393f45 as used in oVirt for a quick test:

Looks good!

​Much better for my eyes now, thanks a lot!

The oVirt logo needs little more space around it, and it also should be centered vertically.
Modifying the logo margin to 8px and width to 108px works for me using chrome,
see attached screenshot.

Is this more readable? If yes - I can continue working in this direction to add gradients
and other patternfly style elements. 
Otherwise I'll just go with option 1 and stick to the default style we have now.

Well.. keep it as it is or make it really dark (like the patternfly menu). I do not care about logos but big area filled with non-neutral color is always going to be an issue.

I agree with Milan and Martin, even after few minutes looking at it, the green
with combination of white background just made my eyes burning :-(

Would it be possible to use more darker colors (at least for top banner/menu)?
For example darker colors we use in oVirt engine welcome page ...

Thanks for the feedback,
It will help if someone can suggest an alternate CSS which we can use or specific color codes,
otherwise it will be long trial and error process until we'll find something that will suite everyone.

I agree with Milan here. The light green background makes the menu
items to be almost unreadable, the search button (slightly different
green color) blends with the background and generally the color pulls
my eyes away from the content. I wouldn't feel comfortable looking at
the screen for a whole day.
