This is a snippet on a site i have just been building. I considered the readability etc, and the corporate colours, and tried to work with them.
Actually, I find it quite relaxing to read and view, and I have not had any comments from the testing people or users that there was an issue. Overall, green is a fairly easy colour on the eyes.
But someone has commented that they don't like it, and find it hard to read. While I want to accept their views, I am puzzled. So I wondered whether I have missed something here. Is this colour scheme one that the other UXers here would consider reasonable or not?
edit The red that I am using is darker than the normal error red, which I do use to highlight problems.
edit As I point out in comments, I am not a UI developer. The puzzlement is not that people don't like my designs ( heck, I'm not that sensitive ), it is that no-one else commented previously. And, as I said, there are a whole set of other requirements. Some of these would rule out a completely white background... ( which is what I started with ).
I accept everyone's comments. I think, sadly, that I will not have time to alter this, but the feedback is helpful.
I will just go into a corner and cry for a moment...
edit Thats interesting. I have just moved my browser from its usual monitor to my other one, and suddenly, it looks dreadful. So I think I have been fooled by a monitor that dulls the colours, and doesn't display them well. So what I have seen is, in fact, different to what others see.
