TYPOGRAPHY! It’s a beautiful thing when you get it right. Have a looksee.
That wasn’t really any help man. I have visited that site on several occasions, it is really good. Typography is one of my favorite things about web design. Not because I am good at it, but I would like to be. I am really new to web design, please don’t just criticize the design. Tell me what I can do to improve it.# April 14, 2009 at 4:17 am
I would personally change your main body text to something like 0.8em, also bring the text away from the post headers a little bit more.
Smaller fonts for your sidebar too, and some margin:5px 0; for your li’s in that list.
It’s not bad, its all just a little "big"# April 14, 2009 at 3:53 pm
I would add some Margin to the top of your sidebar there. Also Decrease the size of the font in the sidebar. Pretty much all your fonts just seem a bit too big.
There seems to be a big extreme from your header to your content area. Maybe try some new colors they don’t really seem to go together that well.# April 15, 2009 at 2:22 pm
I agree with what was said above – change the typography, at the moment it is too bold and in your face. Make the main text smaller, and perhaps change the font, stay serif, but have a play around.
Furthermore I would add a gradient going from black to transparent on the footer to add a bit of contrast.
And finally how about some grunge on the header? Just to make it seems more organic.
Otherwise it is a nice site with a solid structure!
