    A little more attention to detail and I think you've got it

    Your overall design is pleasing and consistent. The style is simple and seems to work well. Your completed projects look good too.
    I found numerous misspelled words on several pages. You might want to copy all your content a page at a time and paste it into a word processor with a spell checker to root those out. Even on your completed projects. examples found: "innotative", "profesional", "relativelly", "bsiness", "clientelle", "jewelery", "greaatly", and "Chistian" on one of your client's pages.
    I would also work on mastering validation. Out of the pages I checked none of them validated. This is a chore at first if you're not used to validating, but after doing it a bit it becomes second nature and will give you a more professional persona.

    Note: your location and statement links are flipflopped on your About dropdown menu. Your blog link appears dead along with these links: COMPANY : TESTIMONIALS : PRODUCTS.

    Check your news links. New Technologies appears to continue the Katrina story.

    With a little more attention to detail on dotting your eyes and crossing your "t"s, I think your site comes across as very professional.

    It looks like you've already achieved some success, so may you continue to do so.

    Kind regards,

    Yes sir. I'd get in the habit of validating every so often as you build. Not only will that make you appear more professional IMO, but it will help ward off many potentials problems with page rendering on other browsers you've not checked.
    If you have a problem with something not working or rendering right, one of the first questions will be, "have you validated." There may be other takes on this, but I don't think you can go wrong by making it part of your routine.

    Hi,

    The theme is good and looks professional and more over simple to navigate or not much fancy. I like the changing colors on each menu category. But i do notice that text looks somewhat light. I think you might made it suitable to the background color of the site theme. Some of the links are not coming up and they shows up as page not found.

    The logo looks like some what technical but i could not understand much out of it. Tried to test Contact us form. It simply accepted empty values on submit button.

    Overall anyone the site is in easy of use with good & clear navigation.

    Goodluck
    Rk

    A nice one indeed. The drop down menus are cool.
    I'm sure you will be a good web designer.

    Very interesting design. And I mean interesting. Unique, for sure. I like it. I like the way colors change - however, there are some colors that make my eyes burn, like the purple one.

    I also like dropdown menus.

    The black template looks much more professional than the other templates. I would eliminate the blue line that appears when a user mouses over a sub-menu item - it looks unprofessional.

    The portfolio looks like you used a script and stuck the database output page on your site. Eliminate the border on the portfolio to help fix this.

    Make the logo link back to the home page.

    Seriously - eliminate all other templates besides the black one. If the yellow template happens to appear on a page where the user needs to look at the footer, the user will think you are really bad at web design and not hire you.

    I like the body background very much. The placement of your text - centered below the menu - is also excellent.

    I like your design! It looks clear and simple at the same time. And by the way, it's very easy to navigate.

    But your contact form accepts everything what you put in.
    Is your blog under construction? Clicking on it I've got 404 error.

    Good luck with your project!

    Nice innovative design!
    Drop down effect is good.
    On the contact page the red hurts my eyes.
    I feel you must increase the size of your pictures on the news page.

    Good luck!

    The design is nice. I would suggest that you show a few templates in your "Templates" page.
