Hi!

I love the new design. I just have a quick thought on the header on high-resolution screens. I appreciate the responsive, full-width approach to the new header, but in my opinion it would look better if you added a max-width property to the content of the header (not the blue line, it looks nice when it spans the width of the screen). I've included two screenshots. One, which is how it is today where the content of both sides of the header are actually on the "outside" of the content width of the website. And the second screenshot is a suggestion to how it could look.

Keep up the good work anyway!

Benjamin

I guess content on the old LDS.org did have a maximum width; however, its maximum width didn't really bother me. I didn't look at technical details to see if the new maximum width is the same or less; there is a different font and size on the revised site. It's just that my overall observation in reading on the new lds.org is that I feel constrained with the maximum width; it's less than what I want it to be.

You can see the old LDS.org here:

I think the fact that the page is framed by a different color makes a big difference.

As a UI/UX designer, I second bweggersen's suggestion, especially on larger screens. Full-width is fine for smaller screen widths where it isn't as dramatic. I think a simple max-width would fix things, unless the current designers are taking into account other languages where super-wide text might affect the layout of items in the header. There are a ton of things to consider, but at first glance, I think bweggersen makes a good point.
