Omer Nihad, an AUIS IT student, a designer and the owner of the Omergrahpics.com, says the old design was better than the new one.
"The new design doesn't have any wow-effect. There is no use of flash in the new design," he said. "The older design was better than this one because the previous one had filled all the space while the new one doesn't."
