    Alright,
    I am in need of thoughts.

    I created this website months ago http://www.ryancoker.com.
    The code is embarrassing simply because it was my first attempt at building a site via all css.

    I wanted to break away from your standard navigation.

    what I want to know is this….
    •Do you think this navigation system works, or does it get a little annoying?
    • Since I used absolute values to place the navigation and logo there is no real easy way (that i know of) to center the picture while keep the bg image fixed. Do you think that this looks ok on wide screen monitors?
    • any other thoughts comments… do you think this design works?

    I have found that designing for your self is one of the hardest things as a designer. I feel 20times more critical on this design than any design for a client.

    Your design is very orgininal, but I am sorry to say that I don’t like the way pages open. In one or other way it just don’t feel natural. I find it hard to describe, maybe some other people got this same feeling? I think a site like this where you present you work to potential customers, the navigation should be easy and natural…

    yeah thats what I was fearing… I am thinking that I am going to go back to the drawing board.

    any thoughts on this design? http://www.ryancoker.com/v2/V2design1.jpg

    It’s also original. Maybe add a little more color? It’s now – I don’t want to offend you, just say how it comes over to me! – a little old-fashion maybe? Try to make is a little moderner I think, some fresh colors somewhere? This is just my thought, maybe you have choosen for those colors with a reason?

    The navigation needs to give more feedback. A hover-effect would’ve been nice. Also, why not put the same links (about – work – contact) on top of all pages, so for easier navigation?

    The index-page carries too much of a resemblance to a general splash-page, which gives me – and could give other visitors – negative associations.

    Perhaps that big background image could auto-resize to fit the browser window?
