    I like the graphic work, but I have some issues with the design:
    1. Why design for 1024x768? Lots of people still use 800x600, and your banner is the only element that takes up alot of real estate.
    2. The text in your nav is a little fuzzy. Try anti-alaising it if you haven't.
    3. There is alot of blank space to the right of your content, and it looks a little akward, IMO.


    I like the look and feel of the site, nice work. Welcome to the boards.

    First off welcome to the boards .

    Ok now to the site, im with Spluf on everything he said. Those pictures you have to the left on every page are really hard to notice and recognise. I didnt see em at first cause it just looks like a red block sub consiously. I suggest making them a bit bigger and easier to notice.

    Other than that good joob .

    Another thing I noticed that I left out: your banner is too tall. On 1024x768 res (which you designed for) the content doesn't start until the bottom quarter of the page. It feels very squished, and you have two scroll bars, which is always confusing.

    youve done a good job!!
    The only thing that get me is the nav images. They are blurred.

    and also, i'd redesign the site for 800x600 because the majority of ppl, including me, still use 800x600

    Great site and for such a great thing!

    I like the site, although when I resize my browser 2 1024x768 the site is really small at the bottom. I think It would be better with perhaps a slighty smaller image at the top, both horizontally and vertically :-).

    Thanks for the feedback guys! I understand the problem with browser size but I am not sure what the info out there is regarding number of people using each browser. I much prefer designing for 1024x768 as there is much more scope for a stylish design. Its interesting that on my computer the site works fine on 1024x786 but not on other peoples computers.

    Wow... that's got to be the BIGGEST banner I've ever seen !!! You probably could have integrated the iframe into the banner more to make the design a bit smaller.
