    I'd prefer better battery life than all of these fairly pointless features, to be honest

    Hate to say it, but I really don't like either design.

    The original (old) version is so distracting and overwhelming that I can't digest any of the useful content it delivers.

    The new version is just too heavy on the colour. I really dislike that typeface too - the squashed 'a' is horrid. It's just a HUGE homepage - they need to simplify the hierarchy.

    I'm surprised this got rolled out - I'm disappointed, as they churn out some good info on design but can't deliver a decent looking site.

    Like it - nice and clean style. The wording is a little off though in various places -

    'Franklins locate and select four links of hip hop' - doesn't read well. The service name is 'Franklins' not 'Franklin', so the text should be 'locates and selects...' or 'Franlinks can/will locate and select...'

    Might be worth proofreading your content. Otherwise, good job!

    Sounds good - Framer looks pretty extensive. I'll give both a try, thanks!
