I would love to hear your ideas about my website, what do you thing is right and what is wrong, what I should change and what is working.
I like the design.
You should know, though, that in Safari there's a huge horizontal scrollbar..
i like the overall design. very nice color combos. very clean. i might clean up the search bar a bit. put the button next the text box, and drag the 2 icons to the left, under the search bar horizontally laid out.
I would have to agree that this site is really clean. Nice use of padding throughout making it really nice to read. Good Job.
Wonderful use of complimentary colours.
Love the design. The red with the blue grey goes really well.
The only slight issue is the two side columns. Because you are trying to have them look like they are laying over the background, I can see that the header background images (with the arrows on them) and the main background image do not line up. This leads to a sharp edge which I find a little distracting.
I also agree on what CraniumDesigns said about the search area, make the search text box and button in line and put the to feed links underneath.
I really like the design. It all looks clean and sharp. I especially like the parchment look of the background and the way it fades out as it drops on the page.
I also like your title graphic at the top.
However, on a negative note, I would suggest that you take all the text and run it through spell check and and a structure check. There are a lot of misspellings and chopped sentences. That's distracting.
One more suggestion. I noticed all of your links to other sites are not opened in a new page. If someone isn't paying attention, they will close that page expecting to be back on your site again, and you will have lost them!
I think it looks nice and clean. The only thing I could say would be maybe having a template page instead of on the home page if your main goal is your web design service but if the main goal is traffic from templates that will work but maybe something to think about.
I know everyone likes to use the reflection thing in designs. In the right place and right time it can look good but it is still way too abused.
But this one isn't right. The reflection needs to be moved down so it looks like it really is above a plane. Right now it is behind it and not right.
I'd just remove it all together and center the logo in the bar.
A nice theme and idea but im having problems viewing in IE6 gets a little messed up!
I would however make a seperate page for your templates, having them on the front page will not make your visitors move around your site.
Nice colors and logo.
i would definatly stay and check your site out further if i was looking for templates and came accross it
nice colors and a very good logo =]
Using Opera here
But to be honest it looks kind of weird from one side to the other (not all colors match)
Hope that helped and dont take it bad it is just a reccomendation i like your site.
But i think you can still customize wordpress even more !
Move things around you did great with the theme now move things around and make it more orginal :
and wow a lot of people are using wordpress now lol
ps. Nice Content
Hey generally looks pretty good like the header nice design.
Try having your google adds below the side menu instead of next to it. See how it looks?
The greys and blues look good very clean.
And I see you have valid html and css congrats
Keep up the good work
I feel a 160 width sky scrapper google-adsense banner will better suit this design. The current width is a little low...
Th rustic look on top is good and the color scheme is good. Overall there is a good feeling when you are there.
