    Im a noob.

    Hello, can you tell me If my design is any good or not?

    Hosted on a free server. It's my first attempt at making a layout in photoshop.

    Just realised that there is a site review section, very sorry for posting here.

    Design...

    The design is nice, although available screen real estate is rather limited; the implementation however leaves a lot to be desired.
    Regards,
    Ronald.

    Font is way too small.

    I agree with Ronald ... you painted yourself into a corner with no room.

    You should provide more content area and less of your fancy photoshop.

    Thanks for your feedback, I will change the font size.

    Are you going to advertise "just 3 hours" to potential clients? Because if you do, they'll all call at 2:55 hours and ask you if their site is done yet!

    I like the background. There are ways to allow users to adjust type size for their own liking (I'm not sure how) so they aren't tied into their monitor resolution. Maybe coding for that would be good. I find type hard to read on a 1600 x 1200 monitor screen, but I don't want to run my video at 800 x 600 just so I can read stuff.

    Don't make (or rely on) the users to do anything.

    Make the site readable, easy to navigate, and easy to locate needed info.

    Thank you for the feedback.
    Karen, I'm not selling my skills to anyone yet, personally I dont think I'm good enough. So it doesnt matter that i put 3 hours on the latest news section.

    But yeah I'll make some changes this week sometime, hopefully to improve it, and you guys and gals can tell me what you think again.

    Once again, Thanks

    The design is like knockoff designer goods you get in cheap highstreet stores - they nice and they're doing everything right but somehow they've just not quite got 'it' - whatever 'it' is.
    Its that 'je ne sais quoi' that really great designers have thats lacking. I dont know whether they're born with it, whether its something they learn at design school or whether its just something you gain by osmosis from having a mac, an ipod, and really metrosexual friends
