Requesting your critique
# March 15, 2013 at 11:14 pm
Requesting your opinion on my new site.
I did the site using the knowledge gained from this site and Chris’ videos.
Did it on my Mac using Codekit + Compass/SCSS.
Behind the scenes it is a ASP.Net driven site but the HTML is pretty clean, none of the funny ctl_000 stuff.
Interested in your thoughts if you get a free opportunity.
All the best,

I would personally remove the “made by” bit at the bottom.
The transitions are really nice! The content is laid out well and I can find what I need easily. The color scheme is also pretty – I would personally not have gone for the blue and green striped look as it looks a bit 2003ish but it seems to work with the content.# March 18, 2013 at 4:27 am

I’ll echo the sentiment of not putting “made by” in the footer. The copyright already points towards elmsoftware, so I would recommend that if you want designer/developer visible somewhere, put it in a comment in the HTML file.
Speaking of comments, awesome head on that file!
I like the colours, they’re very soothing. The orange is coming out of the left field some, but I’m assuming that it’s from something in the app or whatnot.
Overall, it’s a nice design, very… yes, soothing. Good transitions from desktop to mobile too.# March 18, 2013 at 1:07 pm
Thank you all very much for the feedback! That is greatly appreciated!
John, thanks for the W3 link. Need to work on the circles a bit. They may be trying to hard to accomplish my goal. Thank you.
theacefes: Thank you for your recommendation about removing the ‘made by’ link. I will do it, gone later today! Those colors are my palette so I thought I would splash em up there. Thank you for your help with the link and your thoughts.
Melindrea: Two votes for no ‘made by’ link! Its a goner. :) I tried my best to make the header minimal and effective. It is done in ASP.Net and I focused on minimalism. Thank you. Glad you like the color theme as well. The theme/color palette is throughout the actual Windows program (that the site sells) so I thought I might as well continue it on the home page. Ultimately my entire windows program should be a complete web program for wedding planning. So now I have a little bit of a start with the color pallette and coding structure/grid system.
Thank you all very much for looking at the site!
