    i would like to see more content before i give much crit but i will say, lose the style changer. there is no need i feel unless you have little work to showcase. Also the style changes doesn't do much anyway.

    As for the type, i don't like it and the gradient is cheesy. try a fontin sans, its free, as are a few on the site.

    I agree...although i'm all for minimalism...the design seems to be sparse and lacking something

    I agree with everyone else - it looks too empty.

    hurmm empty. that means writing content, which isnt my strong point.
    any other ideas how i can fill it up a bit. Cant make any major changes to any images at the minute because im away from my own pc for a couple of weeks
    Regards Phil,

    Writing content isn't too hard. You just need to write about what services you offer, what your specialty is, and things like that. Since it's a portfolio, you could include some background information about yourself, such as where you went to school, how you became interested in your field, and so forth. Then just run it through a spellchecker and upload it. It's also good to try and use keywords from your keyword meta tag, which you'll probably be doing without even thinking about it. As the site stands right now, I have no idea what you offer by visiting your site.

    Ha, flash ain't the best way to go, no offence solid

    Check this text gen. no need to write content yourself, just add this and at least ppl can see how you site looks without content. I believe, and shoot me down if you think Iím wrong, that design at the moment is very type orientated and your use of white space is crucial! add some of the made up text into you portfolio and think about how the text reads and looks then how the white space defines the readability.


    Good start but, only a start imo
