    Hello guys (and girls),

    I'm doing a mock-up for a new portfolio website of mine, and I'm trying to figure out which of these two look better:

    Option 1 (my personal favorite)
    [​IMG]

    Option 2
    [​IMG]

    As you've probably figured from the images, I'm offering four contact options; form, email, skype and aim, and this link panel is meant to provide the visitor with links to contact me on each application (e.g. email with the "mailto:" syntax).

    In my opinion option 2 looks a little too boring, having stacked text that looks almost exactly the same, however option 1 could be confusing (especially if they don't have the application installed, but would consider installing it if they knew what my handle/ID was).

    Anyway, let me know what you think!

    (Note: I realize that the text isn't aligned properly in option 2, but I don't want to give out my actual domain just yet :)).

    Make the images smaller and combine them ? looks better and they still can copy paste the contact easily

    Thought about doing that, looks a bit odd though?
