    I have decided to start working toward making money with website design. Here is the Template for my main website.

    The design is not pixel perfect, but it shows the basic concept of what I'm going for. Please rate this the design.

    Before anyone comments on it, I would like to point out that I'm not the best graphic designer. So the images in the content slider are a little pixelated. I will fix them once I figure out how to get the effect I want correctly.

    Not bad for a start.
    A couple of things right off the top:
    1. center the design on the page - I know this is just a JPG but when it goes live make sure it's centered.
    2. Consultation, not Consoltation - use a spellchecker on every bit of text for the site.
    3. perhaps a tad more colour - choose an accent colour and work it consistently into elements of the site
    Keep it up - I can't wait to see it live.

    I would say even a simple mock up on a free host would do more justice As AM said, there is not enough color in my opinion. Some of the font I can not even read. I am sure some of the lack of strong colors is due to a downsize in the image file, like I said, does not do it much justice.

    I added light blue as an "accent color". I applied it to the logo (which I think makes it look a lot better), links, and headers in the footer.

    I'm using two fonts. One for headers and another for other content. I made all of the header text bold so it would be thicker and easier to see.

    Is this better:


    Comments?

    Here is the design with all of the footer links in one row.



    I'm not sure if I like it. I think it makes the page look a little off balance with the social buttons stopping the links from being completely centered.

    I agree with the bottom links on one line. Terms and conditions not necessary.
    Your agreement will be with each client, verbal or in writing (writing is the best).
    Privacy policy? Not sure if that's needed either. Most people "get the idea" now
    that the internet has been around for a while.

    You might not want to use Latin for the language though ... :unsure:

    ... just kidding. I presented a layout to a client one time and they were upset
    that I made all of their content in Latin. Even after I gave them a Wikipedia
    explanation of "nonsensical Latin", they thought I was being childish.:happy:
    Zboost and Blackhawk095 like this.

    I'll move the social links and then center the links. As for the Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy, I really only put those there because I saw them on many other web design websites. I didn't want to have to write those anyways.
