    Nice work Jimmy. Love the sky background and the red on blue. Some things could do with improving though:

    1. The layout of the content area doesn't match the beauty of the header. The header seems to be well thought out and designed. The content seems to have been neglected in the design phase.

    2. Given the size of the text, the content area on the front page seems too wide.

    3. Same for the blog. There is no proper organization of content.

    4. There are a few minor validation errors.

    5. Giving the sidebar box rounded corners might help it blend better with the rest of the layout.

    All the best......

    Thanks for the tips!

    I have since changed the sidebar boxes a bit by giving the h1's a rounded bg.

    Checked it out. The header is nice, but you might want the background to continue, and remove the margin between the header and content. Creates whitespace.

    Nice color combination

    I really like the red/grey/white/ color combination. It's also nice to see a lot of whitespace on your page... that is refreshing.

    Hi
    I like your vision. I think that background of clouds is very good. And I think that on this background any colors would look good.
    So, Red and grey are fine, but the right side bar blocks to my mind should be as one or something else, I can't actually express...
    Just don't feel good while looking at this sidebar.

    Good layout and ease of navigation. Everything seems to link smoothly and the pages are not overly long (which may sometimes turn off readers). Adding regular content will certainly help the blog page. I think you have successfully overcome many questions that would be posed with regard to age and experience.

    In the "About" page, first full paragraph, it appears that "considering" is spelled wrong.

    The layout is good and the content is good. However I think it needs work, it looks very dated, like late 90's.

    Some suggestions:

    1. Loose the gray

    2. I would make the menu more graphical, maybe with a gradient and proper hovers, it looks kind of dated as it is.

    3. I don't like the right hand boxes, the curve is a bit hard and they are kind of bland.

    4. Your content isn't broken down too well on the homepage. I think you should open a bit more impactingly, in a shorter space and then have headed sections below, well spaced out. That way your homepage is more catching, maybe with some visual work example in there as well.

    It's not bad, but I think it could use some work.

    Hi,

    I like the basic of your site. Also the content, it is simple and informative. Do you plan to include some pricing information?

    I wrote today about some web design tools, you might find that useful for your career as a designer.

    Great background image, however, it doesn't really fit with the rest of your site? Maybe swap out the red for some blue to match?
