comment Multiple price point offerings
@colmcq You are confused. The 'wireframe' you refer to, is actually a screenshot of the example on the Codekit site (linked to within the question). The screenshot also mentions Codekit within the description and has several other options to just the three to which I prefer, so I thought it was obvious!

comment Multiple price point offerings
@thunderblaster I should have added more detail.. my apologies. So, in this particular instance it is for tangible goods such as t-shirts, posters etc. I'll update the question.

comment ECommerce design: Collective price display vs No. of items
Thanks @MonkeyZeus, my reference to the 'host' wasn't actually in terms of Web hosting (Sorry, I should have worded this differently), instead 'host' refers to the retailer.

comment On a mobile device, where in the navigation menu should “login” be placed?
Thanks, Rich. Given that this is for a mobile layout (and restrictions of the design) it is a requirement that the login option be placed within a drop down menu. I agree that the item should probably be placed at the very top, but since there is no mouse in this use case the reasoning here doesn't quite work. But you're right, it is logical to place related items together. Thanks.

comment Force a PDF download vs allowing the user to view in browser first
A very good question. I don't know of any research myself but intuition says allowing the user to view the document in browser is the best option as it reduces user involvement. Quite often a user will be required to view a pdf in search of information that may or may not be within, it's a pretty poor experience if a user is to download multiple documents when these may be of no use. - obviously I realise there are exceptions to the rule (as stated above).

comment Contact form on mobile vs. mailto: link?
I agree entirely with Nicolas. Whilst there is good argument that every smartphone now has a native mail app, who's to the say the user has it set up? If they haven't, then that's a barrier. A barrier preventing the user from reaching you. Barriers are bad. A web form on the other hand allows anyone to mail you, regardless of whether or not they've set up their native mail application. Give users the choice, but never drop the web form.

comment What might be the most intuitive positioning for a “Hide Page” CTA?
Thanks Vitaly - Your suggestion is along the same lines as what I was thinking, although you run into issues when it comes to small screens. I decided to run a bar the full width of the screen, fixed to the top of the browser window. It includes a logo and text to say it can be clicked anywhere, or alternatively the escape key can be used. Thanks also for the point on the use of "CTA", I reluctantly used this as I could not think of what else to call it. CTA was for me, a close alternative that would be understood.
