To get straight to the point, this is causing trouble:
The menu on top (work news about media) is a dropdown menu. The problem is that it has a white background, and the page is also white, and the text colors match too. This results in a weird, disconcerting and un-esthetic effect when the drop down rolls down over the page contents.
The design is minimalist, uses only two colors and not many elements. This dropdown looks real good on a non-white background, such as on this page.
So, we're pondering ways of separating it from the background.
A border is an obvious solution, another pondered solution is reducing the opacity of the whole page when the dropdown is activated.
Is there any other way?
Edit: Removed the original link because the design is being updated. Will keep you updated...
