    I am developing a website and using Foundation's CSS elements.  In the short to mid-term I will need to turn the site into an e-commerce site.  My site is 100% custom built from the ground up using HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.  I want to ke... (continued)

    Can someone please help me figure this out?  I am trying to make the top logo overlap the banner image slightly.  I just want the logo to overlap the banner halfway so that it looks like it is draped over the banner image.  I set the image ... (continued)

Is there such a thing as a perfect score?  I have yet to encounter a website that scores about 80%.

Hi Murray,
Thank you for sharing your experiences.  The company I work for wants to launch the website selling between 25 to 50 different items.  Many co-workers and personal contacts like my design so I am reluctant to abandon it and persuade my boss and collegues to accept a template that looks like so many other small businesses' e-commerce sites.  I have not yet looked into PayPal.
This is my site, it is not finished so some of the links do not go any where.  I like the site because I have complete control over the layout and it is responsive.

What is most important is delivering a unique design that is responsive.
Thank you,
Elisandro

Michael,
 
Thank you so much for the examples!  I am going to look into your examples tomorrow and give you my feedback.

Michael,
Thank you for your feedback.  Can you direct me to examples of code?  I am not looking to recreate the animation attributes, I just want to make buttons with angled sides.  I am developing a website for the business I work for so the website needs to have a conservative look, not too flashy.
Thanks,
Lee

Hi Ryan,
The click to call is starting to work nicely.  In your opinion would a phone icon or "Click to call" text work best from a UI/ UX stand point?

Hi Ryan,
Thank you for the suggestions.  I would like to use an image file for the icon.  How would I declare the image?  I have yet to see media queries hide and show links.  Would I declare the media query in the CSS file?
Thanks!
Elisandro

Thank you Kevin,
Can you please send an example of the code that you are referring too?

 Hi Val,
I use top bar because it is used in the building block that I am using for the top navigation.  I just want to know how to do the following:
Place the logo at the top left with the logo overlapping the navigation section and extending over the slider that I will add later.
Make the navigation links switch to responsive once "Storage Solutions" touches the logo.  I like the way your logo stacks beneath the links when the browser width is decreased.
I don't understand why Foundation makes it so difficult to accomplish this simple design.
 
Thank you,
Elisandro
