After some constructive feedback

    Just after some constructive feedback on my website.


    I may possibly remove the photo section to push my design and development work once ive got a few more designs up.

    I really like the design of the site; it’s clean, sleek, and smooth. The only thing I would consider changing is the single-page layout. The reason for this is because it is an old technique that was used back in the 90s, and so it kinda makes the site feel old – this in itself a contradiction, as the site’s design feels very modern.

    Apart from that I like it!

    thanks for that i wasn’t sure about the single page thing but i couldn’t create/write enough content to warrant each part to have separate pages

    I feel like I’ve seen that greyscale wooden background 3-4 times already, but it’s definitely cool. The obviousness of the repeated background annoys me just a tad, though.

    On your scroll downs (when you click on a link), I would recommend having the page stop 50px before the top of the box. It is currently leaving a lot more space on the bottom than on the top (unbalanced).

    I do like that minimalist style though. Good work.

    Yeh, what Ashton said. I would have a top margin at each section. I think it looks weird with the sections touching the top of the browser frame.

    Cheers for all the feedback so far, ive had a mess with the css so that is now fixed

    Yep, you fixed it. I don’t have any more critiques for ya ;)

    Good work.

    After coming back to this post and looking at your site again, I have reconsidered – I like it, keep the single page layout as it seems to be coming back into fashion, one other thing, you need a form validation on your contact form to stop people from entering false information.
