Home Forums Other seeking feedback on preliminary design Re: seeking feedback on preliminary design


I don’t mean to offend you, but it looks a bit amateurish – like someone designing a business card for themselves. Most people try to fill the entire card using every corner and borders etc.

I like the generous use of whitespace, however if you want the images to be the star of the show make them big – really big. I would put all the footer info in one corner and place the logo with that info or with name top left. The borders are fighting one another – you have a soft rounded border on the outside of the content and then the images have 4 borders (whether you intended that way or not, the dark bold black, its semi light shadow, heavy thick white, and thin delicate black again). Like the borders, you have opposing line types – thin and dotted; in different colors. I count 7 different blues. Normally using the same color in different hues and lightness works, but it doesn’t here. The fonts seem a little bland for a photography site.

Again, I don’t mean to be condescending, just relaying my thoughts. Hopefully others will chime in as well.
