    Here's a website I recently designed. Keep in mind that I'm a graphic designer expanding into web design, and I guess development, because I built all of the elements, except for lightbox and music player. I'm still trying to get a hold of definitions of designer/developer. I guess that should be a new post in a different section.

    Personally, websites with splash pages lose me at the outset. It's one too many steps I have to take to get to where I want to be

    I had a background track that played on launch, but removed it after a guy in my office almost blew his speakers.

    I thought it was worth it at first, because it was just a splash page with "COMING SOON" on top of the logo. It gave a taste as to what was coming.

    Well the design rocks, but now that the site is starting to have content, it is redundant.
