    This is my second website that I'm making (The 1st one was crap), and I need some critics/suggestions.
    Be harsh, I don't mind.

    Why do you have a ribbon at the bottom? If its a jean company(idk) I think the ribbon doesn't make any sense. It also covers a portion of the slideshow on my screen at least. Fix the logo its pixelated. I don't really like your back ground. I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure your background a big picture. Its always a bad idea to make it a full picture. Instead make a long strip and make it repeat horizontally or vertically.

    I'm with Andrew. I don't get the ribbon, either.

    I'm not crazy about that grey patterned background. It looks like you're trying to put a skating rink in for the background, but it doesn't fit.

    I hate when people use non-web-optimized fonts as plain text fonts. Yes, it can be done, but it doesn't mean that it should be done. In Chrome, Firefox, and IE with ClearType disabled, the fonts look terrible. They're jagged and edgy.

    For the Niki Design header, you want letter spacing.

    Basically, what I think is that you have a couple of elements that make an okay start (the logo and the slideshow, but you've got a long way to go before things match up.)

    Yea im with you I like the logo if it weren't pixelated. I like the layout too.

    The ribbon at the bottom should be the footer. Fixed the header. The background isn't big, it's just a small texture that repeats. What fonts would you recommend, I can't really decide. And no, it's not a jeans company. It's a T-Shirt printing shop or something like that. What would you think would fit as a background ? I removed the ribbon on the footer, so now it's just a bit darker.

    I'd recommend someone wearing one of the t-shirts. Ideally blonde, excessively perky, and disproportionate between the neck and torso.

    (Girls and ladies: call me a chauvinist pig if you want, but I'm only saying it because it sells and that's the goal here.)

    Allright, I get it. But where would I put her?

    Left side of the background. If you've ever seen ads that take up half of the background of a page on say news sites, that's the idea.

    Allright. Anything else I need to change ? Like, what fonts do you recommend for the paragraph ?

    I'd just go with Arial/Helvetica, unless you can somehow find a non-web-optimized font that doesn't look ugly without anti-aliasing. That's a lot easier said than done, however.
