Hi, please review my design for WebDevHQ.com at http://www.webdevhq.com/preview/ please. I wanted it to load very fast, the page is only around 13K! I may work on another one with a lot more graphics later, I will post here if I do. Thanks.
I don't see what's different about the second one, but maybe that's because you changed the first in the meantime
Maybe you should consider moving the logo to the left of the banner. The menu isn't easy to scan with my eyes (I generally ignore the descriptions unless I am looking for something very specific). Perhaps you could repeat the different sections somewhere else as a simple list of links? Or make subcategories? Maybe you could compensate for this by using some more color so the more important elements stand out.
These are just the thoughts that occured to me. It's a very good and effective design, and very low on kilobytes.
