    A good start...things I would change:

    1. The whole layout looks a little weird. I would add some more content to the home page and center it all in the middle of the page.

    2. The nav bar text is too big.

    I think all in all you should look at some design blogs to get some ideas. You need to get more creative as a designer.

    Look at Vandelay Design and designm.ag blogs

    I totally agree, and thank you for the feedback, I guess my biggest fear is over-design. I like clean and simple. But that comes with in-experience and i need to find a good balance between aesthetics and functionality

    Your code is really clean. I would put the navigation in an unordered list for semantics sake.

    The design needs some work. You said that you didn't want to over-design, but your advertising design services, so really too much is better than too little. The mountain peaks on the right look odd and jaggy, and I almost missed the social media icons altogether. The graphics are a little cheesy, and the photo on the about page looks completely out of place.

    Check out this article about using graphics in design:

    Thank you for the nod on the coding, that is something I do take pride in.

    The article you posted was very interesting, and I myself have kind of felt stock photography was a little bland. I am trying to buff up my Illustrator skills to create custom illustrated graphics for my site, but I am not close to that point yet.

    Again, Thank you for your insight, and honesty. I do not have a good network of design-minded friends or clients, so all i usually hear are "it looks good" feedback. So I look forward to hearing more.

    I will probably get to tweaking the site at the end of the week, and will update this thread when it is done.

    Thanks Again
    -Anthony

    Site seem to be left oriented. Design part is lagging. The black and orange combination seem to be over worked

    andr, Thank you.

    I changed the image on the About Us page, I feel it ties the site together a lot better. Plz more feedback. Still brainstorming on better ideas for the site.
