    Hi! I think your site lacks some "gentle" factor... it's all hard lines. The header can do with some better colors, some better text, and the tabs should have opaque backgrounds. Don't forget some rollovers.

    Better images should be used. Most are very conceptive images and don't really describe anything useful. Your text is in large blocks and not very nice to read. And your code... hand type it!

    The gutter shadows are way too big. They should never extend beyond 15 or 20 px.

    I usually have just 10px with very low transparency. The subtle ones are the best.

    Also you did the thing of putting the portofolio site as part of the portfolio site.

    Doesn't that lead to a never ending loop? :cheeky:

    Thank you very much for your suggestions, I am going to fix my site as soon as I get the time but unfortunately due to a busy schedule that may take me a couple days. I will post back once I make a few changes. Once again thank you and don't mind if I lurk a little....

    I think its a good 'concept' but as far as execution it could use a little work. Theres something funky goin on below the footer, the lines are a little jagged, and you could really work on the content a bit. Use more headlines.

    BUT, props on having amy whinehouse on the music app. Good stuff.

    Not bad, my suggestion would be to make the black lines more of a gray/dark gray so the page is softer to look at.

    The overall look is better than some other portfolios I have seen but it could still use some work. Too many hard lines. Not enough focus.

    I also suggest cutting down on the text. Try reading this, it helped me a lot.

    I found a few misspellings on a few of the pages. For example "If you don't believe us check around, you will not fing a better deal on web design". Stuff like that could really turn off customers.

    I think it is a reasonable start, just keep at it.
