Just launched my site - Legend - and I'm now taking pre-orders ahead of a Kickstarter campaign.

I only sell one product - a running armband - so had to think about how to design my site to focus on the selling of one thing.

Honest feedback on site design, usability and technical aspects would be greatly appreciated!

    Your site is looking clean thats for sure! You got some high quality images as well. Could maybe add a hint of colour to the header maybe? Or move the subscribe button under the email input field? No biggies though.

      Thanks for the reply sir, much appreciated!

      Some of the folks so far have said they think it's too clean - one guy even said boring! - but I guess I've always had minimaslitic taste.

      I like the one page design and we thought about it seriously. We did though consider the SEO/ranking effects and things that might be a pain for the user (e.g. scrolling).

      Also, we have another product in the works so we will need the pages/catagories.

      Thanks for the tip.

  • It looks really nice. However, I think you should at least have some content explaining the benefits of the Legend Arm Band. If you are doing a Kickstarter for I'd assume you'll have lots of content at the ready, as also a video pitch for it. At the moment, some people are just going to go "meh" seeing the site and not really get the idea.

      Yeah, thanks for comment regarding explanation. I do have a nice Kickstarter campaign with much more content that does explain in much more detail.

      I will look at adding more of this content to the site over time.

    I'm impressed. Usually when I load up a site I see posted on here it's a basic Wordpress theme with stock images, an awful theme and poor UX in mind.

    Whoever developed the site did a pretty good job. Couldn't find any bugs on the mobile end either at least for the home page.

    My only complaint is the text on the below-header image is way too dark and hard to distinguish from the color on the person's t-shirt @ 1920x-1080.

    You could give the text a background to help distinguish it better and replace the margin with padding. This is how that looks: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

    For that, you can add this to this line.
    .slide-text h2, .slide-text h3, .slide-text p

    background: rgba(255,255,255,0.75);
    padding: 20px 0;

    You could also change the color of the text by modifying

    .slide-text h2, .slide-text h3, .slide-text p

    This is a good Text-Shadow generator to help distinguish the text, modify it to your needs and just add the exact code it gives to that tag.

    The site looks pretty good though. It looks well laid out.

    Thanks, I did pretty much the entire thing myself excluding photography.

    Yeah, that's been mentioned a few times to me. I will look at the resources you linked to. Really appreciate your feedback Khovai.

      It is very good site as it is a mobile responsive site. It looks very clean, however it should be some how colorful to give it a pleasant look. You have shared very little content on its page. It would be better if it contains more variants of your product.

        Thanks Jane! I guess the color palette could be devoped further; today we use black and white on pretty much everything from product to packaging and so-on so we went with the on the website as well.

    I went through your website. It has got great design and user friendly interface. The footer part should have been centralized I think.

    Nice! its simple and functional.
    just the footer I guess needs different layout since you got the left side full of links and the right side is empty. Some balance will do the job.

    Goodluck!

      Great design. I did notice one 404 page not found error came up. A Google Tag Manager Script is called but not found. Not critical but could mean that a conversion tag or two wont get fired off when it is supposed to.

          Your website looks really neat! Reminded me of Apple's website.
          It is responsive too so it's a plus. I tried viewing it on my phone as well and I have no problems viewing it. My only concern is, the "chat with us" link is a bit too small. Maybe place it somewhere beside the community links so that people will see it easier.

            Thanks Dennise, much appreciated. Yeah I know what you mean with the chat link, it's floating so will always be available to users but perhaps we need to make it more prominent.

            And yeah, took some inspiration from Apple, who wouldn't right? As Jobs said himself, good artists copy, great artists steal.

      Hi, thanks. I know content is on the light side, where do you think I should be looking to add more though? I have the product landing page and and 'about' page as well as the FAQ. These are the most content rich pages but I'm struggling to think beyond these where else?

      Thanks again.

      Yeah pre-order. We'll ship orders through the website after we ship our Kickstarter orders, most likely in early January. Thanks for the comments!

        I looks nice. Just like Apple's site. Some posts already mentioned added some more information to the landing page. You already have the information(it is on the pre order screen). Why not just put that information on the main landing page?

          That's a good suggestion. We're trying to keep the homepage as clean and concise as possible so we think re-directing folks to the product landing page is better than putting all of that information on the homepage.

          Thanks for the comment.
