    Hi! I've just finished getting the template together for my freelance web design site. It is not live yet (meaning I haven't advertised it). I would like some opinions on my design, and any suggestions you might have for improvement.

    The site is at http://www.caterpixel.com

    Thank you in advance. :classic:

    very nice, xhtml 1.1 valid. css has an error but its a simple fix.

    good looking site, like the logo and think the navigation is slick:-).

    all is well in IE6 (can't view it in anything else at the moment)

    Disclaimer: You're promoting yourself as a professional web designer and therefore you will be held to a higher standard.

    The Good
    Nice color scheme, very slick site. Valid markup. One of the best looking sites I've ever seen with styles turned off.

    The Bad
    That sure is a tiny home page; I'd like to see some more content on the home page.

    I know the nav buttons at the top probably took a long time to create, but I'm not a fan. Why is there a gap between the active nav button and those around it? I really don't like that. Instead of changing the background of the nav button from the nice blue to a white, how about brighter tint of blue? Maybe even keep the exact same gradient as the rest of the buttons, but just overlay the graphic with white at about 10% opacity. I think that would be very nice. Then the buttons would "highlight" instead of the harsh replacement that they currently perform.

    You have 3 different link styles for text on the home page. Inconsistent design elements are a BIG annoyance to me. Pick a link style and use it throughout the site.

    ACK, have you ever tried printing your site? Create a CSS stylesheet for print.
