    Hi

    I've been working on this new design, and it's coming along nicely. However, I just cannot take it from a design I like to a great design. Something "magic" is missing. Any help much appreciated.

    Here: http://ekstreme.com/ac/

    Thanks!

    Well the design is pretty clean and plain but It still looks good. If you want to jazz it up a bit you can add some gradients and some other effects. You should still keep the clean look. The top is a little cramped but It looks good.

    You need a background of some sort... it looks a little to plain with the white.

    Yeah, I agree with Fallout. You could stick all of your content into a nice rounded rectangle like you've got half-way down the page, and then give the rest of the site a nice, rich, darker background. A brown might match your color palette well.

    Ooh bit harsh Buddy Buddha.

    This is someones hard work and he's asked for help so I think "Whdats wrong? Id say the lacck of goodneeess." isn't help (just my opinion)

    You have a nice clean layout, which makes it easy to read your content, but your site looks a bit plain and unattractive.

    I think with a few graphics and maybe a background colour this site would look great

    Im really sorry about that. I was drunk. I actually dont think its all that bad.

    I think the google ads could be better placed as it is somewhat distracting.

    Also the rollover color for the links in the nav shouldnt be such a contrast with the original color.

    I like the rollovers that go blue to orange but not orange to blue. Maybe try orange to brown orange.

    Theres other things but I think its all covered. Good work overall.

    "I'm really sorry about that. I was drunk. I actually don't think its all that bad.
    "

    That would explain the slight spelling errors :-)

    Hello all

    Thank you very much for the feedback. I took everything that was said, and in what must have been the first designer's de-block in months, I came up with a new layout:

    http://ekstreme.com/autumn/

    It features a lot of things from the old design.

    I know it still needs work, especially now that the 4-box navigation needs a slight colour change. Apart from that, comment away!

    Thanks again.
