I like the design. I think it has a clean look and the brown/white combo makes the images really stand out. It didn’t take too long to load, especially since it had nice large images on it.
That said….I would make a few changes.
-Lighten the drop shadow on the header so that it stands out – probably a lighter version of the orange/yellow color used on the roll overs
-Change the title of “new work” to something more catchy….I really don’t know why that doesn’t appeal to me…
-Change the colors on the header to a light brown or the orange/yellow on the rollovers so they stand out more
-Change the picture of Carol…it looks stretched or out of focus
These are the only suggestions I could make. Really a great site overall.
