Now, this isn’t finished. Been working on it the last couple of weeks. This is seriously my 4th website. I am looking for feedback on my design and how I can improve as a designer. Please give me any tips or hints you wish to give!
I dig it, a lot. The multiple testimonials on the homepage with the big quotation marks feels odd. Also feels like the homepage could use some more aligning…feels a bit awkward as it is now, especially proportion wise. I would also ease up on the drop shadow just a tad, make it a bit more subtle.
I would simplify your home page (above the fold) as it hits you in the face like a brick: so much attracting your attention at once.
I like your Drew Quote. I think having two quotes right next to each other in different layouts is too much.
Also, It took me 10 seconds to find your navigation as I expected to be in the top right, but those words weren’t clickable.
I do like the imagery on the sub pages, and the overall style is very classy.
I agree about the multiple quotes. I will be removing the testimonial. I would rather a potential client find out about my principles immediately than read a testimonial. If they are interested they can find it on a subsequent page.
About the main content. Should I do two wider columns, and spread my quote along the bottom of the page? or end up with 3 columns? I am think the first of the two.
Ashton: If i removed the letters at the top, in your opinion would that eliminate the distraction and make the navigation easier to find? or should I just completely move it?
My parting comment is that I think if you had 6 differently-colored websites in that little sidebar thing, it would be way tooo much color. I would keep it simple and make that whole main box about 1 website design.
