Not a bad effort by any means but just a few things should be addressed;
The script font looks _okay_ I suppose, but when it gets used across the **whole** website, it becomes a bit too much for me personally. Especially when the font-size is lower than the headings, it becomes hard to read. Maybe try and opt for a script font that isn’t so ‘scripty’ and a bit more easier to read. And then maybe use a web-safe font, I think something like Georgia would fit the scheme of the website.
As @Paulie_D said above, the curly brackets aren’t doing it for me either, would be better with just arrow graphics or something similar.
And also, something in the footer needs looking at further as it seems to move around in an odd way when you hover over each link, could be a padding vs height of the footer issue.
To @Paulie_D – is the humans.txt file there for a message to other developers? How would you get your name out there for your company if it’s not somewhere on the website itself? Is the answer to just try and promote your own website and it to the portfolio section maybe?
Well I have only ever got one website client that never binned me straight off when I sent them a quote, but it’s just habit putting ‘Website design by Steven Watson‘ in the footer of my mockup designs.
I think the texture makes the site feel ‘dirty’. Although I disagree with @Paulie_D (scripts are the most elegant and beautiful typefaces), the typeface you picked doesn’t fit that well. You don’t need to have the same typeface for the menu either and especially not for the body copy. It’s not that legible.
I’m not an expert, but I agree that there is too much script font. And, personally I wouldn’t have that button pop-up every time to slide changes, it seems to be serving a purpose that is already accomplished by hovering the cursor over the slider.
@Paulie_D@Watson90 Thanks! I was growing a bit weary of the intense amount of cursive going on as well. Now the only reason I put a credit in the footer was because I don’t have but two Sites built so far (pretty new to web-design) and don’t really see a need for making a portfolio site for my own with only two sites. So in putting a credit down in the footer where it is easily visible, I am presenting myself to future clients. People are lazy so the less work they have to do the better (in finding out who made the site. IMO).
Will fix the footer; I didn’t notice that for some reason.
Alright so for now i changed the font and the slider buttons/speed of slides.
Spot anything else?
