Really nice design! I think you definitely got the vibe right. Couple of things to consider: The email at the bottom, because the text is in the same font, it makes it a little difficult to read. If you made the first word bold, for example, that would separate it a little more. I find the alignment of the date and the word Lauantai a little confusing. ...
Try to ditch the border and especially the border-radius on your elements. Get rid of the padding from each of the three containers, so the list elements touch each other. Divide them just with a low contrast 1px solid line. More padding on the list-items would also look good. Try styling the headlines a little bit more subtle. Finally - I personal - would ...
One of the aspects of 'flat' design are flat areas of colour, without an outline. Your current design is teeming with outlines—try and remove those and give the areas they outline contrasting colours. The 'flat' design aesthetic that's very trendy at the moment also eschews rounded corners for regular, 90° corners, you might want to use those as ...
For the headline I would suggest Bitter Bold. I think that the headline could use a thick, serifed font for contrast with the body copy. Bitter got some pretty nice hard serifs so - in my opinion - it goes excellent with sans-serif paragraphs.
I agree that this is a good font-pairing but will add that the two typefaces are pretty similar, so you could always just use the different weights of one of the typefaces to improve load times on the website and simplify coding. I'm guessing your using Lato in this pairing because it's a little less “straightforward” than Open Sans and has a little more ...
This is very common problem which usually is solved by "MASS ACTIONS" - you provide the user with radio-buttons and only one line of mass actions, look at the picture - after the user choose the snippets he/she presses the desirable actions. You should provide option for mass action of view options too.
There's lots of options here. What works best will depend on your particular users. If the goal is to merely minimize the visual clutter, then I'd suggestion the following: Static view: ---------------------------------------------------- Your Snippet ---------------------------------------------------- Your Snippet ...
Another Option Here's a mock-up of the full dropdown mentioned in the comment below. (The original button layout was deleted.) Since the dropdown in this example spans a larger area, it can contain the 3 buttons as well as additional information. It can be styled accordingly (colors, buttons, styles, alignment...), but the trick is not to let the big ...
Maybe you could put a little dropdown at the end of each entry that expands it into the full view when you click it (similar to a minimize/maximize). The edit and delete buttons could then be added to that expanded view of each element.
Spitballing here, because I don't know your limitations. You could introduce some icons (might even what to drop the color on the button, here too. You could also get rid of all the buttons and use a magnifying glass.). Or you could drop the color on the buttons, and add it upon hover or active (hover should only be an issue with touch devices, finger on ...
I think the lesson I learned from this may benefit others in the future: When it just isn't working, try re-thinking your design. Sometimes it's good to just play it simple. Although the simplest solutions can often be the hardest to reach: While this isn't related to the question directly, it's indirectly important: I kept working a design that didn't ...
Here's a quick take on your original idea using the same lines as the X to create balance and combining parts to reduce the overall size of the logo. Personally I believe logos should come down to the simplest form possible to create a striking presence.
Maybe smaller horizontal line on f now, with less space between letters :)
Can you use one of the front slash line from the x letter and work something out with that? It could give the logo a nice flow. My suggestion is a 5 minute work with bad proportions, but it might give you an idea of something....
