I really like the owl image...I would set it as my desktop wallpaper if it were larger.

The color scheme is a bit off. It feels like there's two color schemes going on. Also some of the web site, like the video in the center and the "what do i do", look very professional while other features like the "Graphic | Web Design" looks amateur.

Also the font on the left with Home, My Services, etc also needs a change. Maybe using a shadow or a engraved effect would be better. The galleries font also doesn't look like it fits with the other fonts on the page.

Sorry if I was a bit harsh.

It looks good, but it could be way better.

Your artwork on the site is cool, but the design is a little rough around the edges.

How long have you been doing web design, you seem kind of new.

Anyway, here are the web sites for some other design firms/freelancers, for reference.

It's my real name.  Some designers choose to use a company name, I just market mayself as a person not as a company. 

May change that in the future if I can think of a good name for it.

I dont suggest having a link to alex jones propaganda on your site, though. It makes you look really unprofessional. Not sure what your target market or niche is here, though, so it might work for you? :confused:

Don't link. As for the site it seems very.... messy. Like you took what you learned from a lot of photoshop tutorials and threw it all up with a little html.

No disrespect either. Just that it doesn't have a 'look' that is definable.

Sometimes less it more. Try and make your site as simple as possible. Than from there add SMALL changes that have a flair of your own style.

I do web design somewhat professionally (did freelance for awhile before, now on my last year of school).

Anyways I've seen people in my classes with much less potential than you go on to design some sleek sites.



Think of your site as a canvas and only put on what needs to be there. Than sparingly add other parts that make it you.

Also think it terms of usability for the future visitors. Keep everything as close to the surface as possible. Trying to keep everything important accessible in less than 2 clicks.



I've rambled enough though. Let me know if you have questions about anything graphic or web related.

Some minor spelling stuff in your posts.

In the first para of your "welcome" post it's towards not towords.  In the third paragraph I think you meant prospective clients, not perspective clients.  In the third also, either get rid of the might or could, they both don't fit unless you put a / in between but that looks unprofessional.

Under the "getting started" post all in the second para; wheather = whether, origional = original, and cullomn = column.

The website layout looks fine to me, but I wouldn't be the one to ask on that.
