DashMedia - the swinging type of community fittings. A distinctively curved navigation bar with a drop-down submenu in balloons optics, a color-alternating active hoover and an implied plasticity due to a subtle drop shadow - all of that already points to the versatile character of the style. Daring forms are combined here with powerful hoover effects and are at the same time equipped with a fixed mainMenu.
The result: The navigation including the userpanel scrolls, figuratively speaking, with you. The header in a scratch look is deliberately casual, can be used versatilely (logo, advertising, etc.) due to the space, while the thread view appears in a modern business look and the footer seems to belong almost imperceptibly to the main content, it isn't exposed undue. The search panel was placed via slide-out mechanism in front of the userpanel, thus looking dynamically functional.
The userpanel in turn impresses with icons for the control functions and a modern drop-down style. With this design you set a visual exclamation point, it combines functionality with progress, more arguments? Not necessary, one glance suffices.
