    I really like what you have so far. I would suggest making some smaller text blocks. I feel like there is so much to read, that I want to skip over it. Other than that, I like the colours, layout and textures.

    The typography needs a little work.

    Unfortunately, (and this is not an insult) it’s clear that the Queen’s English is not your primary language. It would be worth you having someone review that for you.

    Other than that I like it…

    overall I think it’s solid. nice work.

    a couple things i feel like when i am viewing it:

    the green background and white text feels too bright on my eyes for such a huge space.

    your images seem kind of cheesy. and in the middle section, i think there may be way too many of them. i would organize them at least, to make the section look cleaner. I’m no expert just my opinion.

    other than that, it looks very fresh.

    I like it! But like others have said the typography could use some work… try smaller fonts, more margin space between copy / text blocks… they need to breath…

    Also the image collages could use a lot of work

    Too much of green you can replace with similar blue used in our usernames :)

    Thank u all. More review pls. @Paulie_D, thank u so much. I actually went through the write-ups again and found some wrong spellings. Sure, English is my second language.

    Isn’t that the “Above the Influence” logo?.

    The initial image you see doesn’t really do anything. For example, the iPad is just a generic iPad homescreen. That doesn’t tell me anything about you, your company, what you can do, etc. The second image is a bit more applicable, but again “cloud services” doesn’t seem to be relative to any of your services – that phrase might better be suited to an IT service provider.

    Your images should either highlight your work or support your brand by invoking some kind of feeling or concept. If you had an image of a website project you did and you had it cascading down through all of those devices from a desktop to every phone – that would immediately make sense to someone.

    I think I’d ditch the 2nd image entirely and replace it with your 3 portfolio boxes. Since you have no navigation, there’s no way for the user to realistically find the portfolio sitting at the very bottom of the page, so it’s just not serving any purpose down there.

    > Your images should either highlight your work or support your brand by invoking some kind of feeling or concept.

    This.

    @CodeGraphics, the images add no value. As a potential client, what value do I get from seeing bunch of devices arranged in a collage? Do you sell phones? Apps? It’s very confusing and it dominates top of the page where real estate is so important. You need to grab your visitors attention and guide them. And your images do the opposite. What benefit does seeing HTML5, CSS, etc. logo add to the value you are trying to communicate to potential clients? Do your potential clients care about what technology you use or do they just need a website? You need to get to the point and simplify. The most important thing is to communicate you value to your client, what can you do for them, how can you solve their problem. So again get to the point and avoid obstacles.

    Web 2.0 like images meet modern devices. Kidding (but not really).

    The type certainly should be improved. There’s no contrast between your headings and text. I’m not a big fan of “noise/film grain” texture so I’m automatically going to dislike it, at least like this.

    @AlenAbdula, i get your point. i will work on the points. thank u.

    # May 11, 2013 at 7:18 am

    But, @AlenAbdula, which concept of image do you suggest i put there. i can perfectly see that those array of phones make no or little sense.
