    Start to align elements relative to each other, keep everything tight in the grid. The attached image shows how things are miss-aligned, the pink lines should merge together to form one single line.

    There's no reason for the copyright notice to be so big and emphasized.

    In order for the colours/layout to be balanced try and aim at including green:red at 1:1 ...possibly changing some of type at the top from white to red would achieve this.

    What's the significance of the header photo? Try making something with a purpose, you seem to be stuck making generic templates.

    It's a good start but for me, a little too green. It's dominating the page too much. And I agree with trico on the alignment issues. It looks a bit untidy and shaken like that. I would bring everything inline.

    One other thing, the font in the header. I'm not 100% on it.


    Not a bad start though. It's something you can work on and develope.

    Here is a revised design, I've added more red balance although I'm not entirely sure on some of the shades? I've also aligned everything a lot better, it does give it a much more uniform look (thanks for that).

    I also changed the header font from Helvetica Neue to Eurostile, I think the geometric/curved style suits the site?

    With respect to the image, it's kind of a placeholder for a flash feature thingy that I plan to put in, it's not just going to be a blank image like that

    All ideas and critique are greatly appreciated as usual :-D

    (Thanks to Dan and Trico for your help already )

    It significantly looks better aligned.
