Inclusive learning handbook mockups

Hi James,

The mock-ups look great so far! Would the teal offer more contrast than the
fuchsia? If so, I think teal might be a good choice for readability. I also
find that depending on the monitor I use to view the mockup, the fuchsia
might look a tad too neon and bright.

I prefer layout 3 over layout 2 because the "clickable" items across the top
are easier to find and scan (read quickly) when positioned on the top, right
corner. I also like that in layout 3, the chapter's name is the most
prominent "title" text ("floe" and "inclusive design handbook" are still
shown if the user is interested to look, but the emphasis is on what the
page is about, which I think is most relevant to the reader). It also
highlights the change between chapter to chapter.

Would it be possible to add a search box at the top left or right, depending
on the final layout? I think it would be helpful for users looking for
specific content. It might require additional work to offer that feature and
to design a search results page, but might be worthwhile if there's quite a
bit of content in the handbook.
