    its a good design but its just too blue.
    Experiment with colors a bit more.

    also, how about some rollovers? that would liven it up a bit.

    Its pretty good but kina over simplistic, add some more graphics or something. And i agree with buntime its a little too blue. Also the "Web Design" In your header should be a different color.

    i agree with Grommet and buntine definatly spruce it up and experiment with colours..

    i do on the other hand like your navigation at the top but use them roleovers to make it pretty

    o and it fits bang on for 800 X 600 so thats gd always nice to see ...

    so overall its very cool lookin

    yer, i agree with grommet. It is a pretty simple design..

    Also, i dont want to sound rude but i think you might be rushing into the web design industry a bit quick.
    Reasons:

    - As you stated, you arent capable of scripting in any language. Knowing atleast one server-side language is very important for web designers. Especially as the web becomes more popular.

    - You use Frontpage.
    Frontpage definetely isnt the best tool for create professional websites.

    - Your using a freewebs.com sub domain.
    This doesnt give your site a professional feel.

    - Lots of spelling errors through-out the site.
    Again, this doesnt portray a professional web presence.

    dont take this in a negative way. Im just trying to give you some advice.

    Overall, your site has potential but you need to get down the basics first. Likewise, you also have potential as a very good web developer but i think you may be rushing.
    Im not telling you to stop making the site, by all means, go for it. But i dont think you will get much work.. especially now that you competing against every other web design studio in the country.

    Just keep at it.

    p.s if this post offends you, just tell me and i will delete it before everyone sees it.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I Suppose rollovers would liven it up a bit. :cross-eyed: and they would probably make people realise that they are links.

    Does anyone have any ideas abouth ow to make it less simplistic??

    And also, How quickly does it load on people's machine at the moment, just so I know how much I can expand of the images side of things? Anyone with 56k Dial-Ups like to answer this one especially please.

    I realise about the domain - if I decide to do it professionally, which, I must say, I might not do, then I definately wouldn't use a free subdomain - definately a .co.uk domain, or perhaps I might go for a .com domain to get more customers.

    Colours - I don't really know what colours go with Blue, as I don't have a colour wheel? Anyone??

    What is the best language to learn in the web design industry? I have plenty of time to do it, so I could spend time doing it. I taught myself HTML before.

    I suppose by saying that I use Frontpage is that I should be using Dreamweaver? If so, I find Dreamweaver a lot more complicated, but I am beginning to learn the basics of it, I just have to get to real grips with it and get myself a full version, so far i've only got a trial

    Thanks for the comments kirman - I designed it so that it wuld fit in because myslef I often don't scroll more than two screen lengths down, so By condensing the pages I find it easier to unserstand.

    i would suggest that you learn php, asp, cgi or coldfusion.
    have a quick look at all 4 of them and then decide. My personal favourites are cgi and asp. But most people would say php.

    To make it less simplistic you should intergrate more images into the design, especially the body.

    And when i said that using frontpage was not good. What i meant was that you should not use any WUSISWUG html editor. You should hard code it.

    if u find it kinda hard coding straight from html... i suggest using Dreamweaver or HTML-Kit as they are two good tools to use and im no preffesional but i get some good results and people are starting to look at my work and think wow..

    first languages i learnt were html,and javascript.. now teachin myself mysql and php...

    definately add more images maybe put all your text to the right and have an image goin down the left?

    That blue is kinda mixin in well but its a bit other the top..(too much) why dont you keep the blue background and put some nested tables in there and have the background to them white with a css border rnd it and have your txt black... should look cool i imagine.,.

    just an idea give it a shot

    Can you explain a bit more please? I'm a little confused

    That way I would have to have scrolling in my pages, do you think that is okay?

    lol sorry if that was a bit confusing...

    take a look at wot i've drawn... just put your footer at the bottom of the page and wollah no need for an im iframe

    you can put anything in that box on the left wheather its a long image or a pattern with a few images in it maybe shots of your work.. anything...
