Could you post a screenshot? I remember the tutorial, but dude, I will be honest with you, it was very extensive and no way am I going to dig that.
Dreamhost, absolutely love it
I would recommend the Easy Slider, it’s one of the easiest content sliders I know of.
Ditto on the main nav, the rest is good. Very good. I think it’s the Italics effect of that text, think it needs to go. Remove that, I think it’s definitely that.May 10, 2011 at 3:15 pm in reply to: Please critique my design :) (which seem to become a fashion to do) #76869
The references of 2.0 that mike makes are the gradients, from White to gray, they are too old for today’s standards (at least amongst designers).
Hello, if I must. :p
I don’t like the gradient too much, make it a bit softer, less obvious that there is one. Furthermore, the borders on the menu items, try to make insets with CSS by doing a border-right, border-left with 1px solid #fff and a darker colour.
Also, the site lacks symmetry; the borders need to be perfectly aligned with the content (main content).
That’s about it; the gradient is the biggest turn off and ironically the most recurrent thing we did when we were new at designing; it’s the point of making the gradients hard. Mix those colors right and you shall see.
