    Is this site for real?

    Have a count of how many contradictions, and if someone can decifer the text would be even better.

    Terrible font and layout choices, cheesily animated heading, table-layout created with Dreamweaver DesignView, wishy-washy content without much of an aim and terrible grammar.

    So where in the 90s did you find this site?

    , Comparing it to your AltoonaDesign site I have my doubts!

    And when did you change your name to Virgilio, then, John?



    Nice try though :P

    Found it this afternoon, someone on Smarta.com had it linked from their profile. 'Ah this looks interesting I thought'.

    Doesn't work in a version or 2 of IE which made me laugh.

    HAHAHA Looking at the header and then reading this:
    As much as possible avoid using or placing something on your site that has something to do with graphics or flash in your business website design. These graphics and flash are associated with a slow downloading time which might be annoying on your visitor’s part plus this things are not recognize by the search engine.

    Not sure what shirtless dude looking longlingly into the distance has to do with reading but oh well...

    http://www.mainglobe.com/reading/

    I like how every page on the site looks like a completely different site too... That's so creative!

    LOL, autogenerated junk text...

    Seriously, this is a horrible example of a MFA site with little to no thought put into it.

    About your site, I think you should replace the image you had used for the banner. It was really blurred and a low quality kind of image. And about the text effect for your banner, maybe you can also change that. For me, I think that was terrible. There are text effect that is also simple but really an eye catching one.So far, the white background and layout is good. But please also check the text sizes.

    It's not his site

    I don't think anybody who calls themself a designer would own up to having THAT site.
