I would remove the texture on the background and add a little more shades of color with what you have now. I would also work on the text type – try something different to compliment the design.
Your services section could be condensed. Your PSD to ? could all be one section. HTML5 and CSS3 kind of goes with the web design. I would completely remove “cheap and affordable”. That makes you seem unprofessional. If it were me, I would have 3 blocks. Web Design, Logo Design and PSD to ?.
With the gallery of your portfolio and the cat thing, I think it would look better if you tried a different hover approach. I prefer that it shows the color right off the start.
Your form would look better if it were aligned to the grid on the left. With the other section, I wouldn’t make the text align to center but rather left. I would also align the icons and text to the left as well so it all matches up with the map.
Hope to see what you come up with. Best of luck.
@ChristopherBurton : thanks a lot, will surely make all the changes you suggested.
@theacefes : i would also keep the html5 and css3 stuff, but most of my clients still want their websites to work on IE7. and the employers want me to work on css3 and html5. i get confused what to do.
Hi, guys, Can you please visit the site again that i posted above, i now have validation and almost finished it.
@ChristopherBurton : i kinda liked the background as i do not want to go more with colours and make it look funky. I am not tooo good with colours, when it comes to choosing for myself hence kept it clean. I also change the font to “open-sans”, and have a different hover approach for my work section and have a better form now.
a word on the form and other stuff would be really helpful.
Very creative site. Only one thing i dont like, and that snaped right in to my eyes, is the fact that you used different images-icons for services. Different in a sense that they have very little in common in style. For instance: “volunteer support” is a flat image with brick-like colors. But “web design” image-icon has very bright Fluorescent colors in and is also drawn in 3D. This gives unprofessional feel to the site. Sugestion: make icons of your own. If you decide to stick with this images, find some other icon for e-commerce. That guy is used so much around the web that, for me at least, connotates unoriginality.
I like the overall design, but i would say keep the texture. However I do have two issues: your work should be the top most element. It is who you are, and should be one of the first things seen. The second issue is, I like the hover over effect, but it hides your design’s when you hover, which is something I don’t think should happen.
