    I finally managed to get my first client! So far I have started the mockup of the website im going to build. Tell me what you think about it thus far. Here is the old website http://mryates.net/ and here is the mockup for the new site http://wagdesigns.webuda.com/images/Redesign.gif Instead of trashing the mockup I made for myself I modified it for the clients website. This is very important for me! Thanks for the reviews.

    Firstly well done with the new client!

    Couple of things I have noticed which I will comment on:

    1. I would make your slider at the top full width. Looks a little out of place being smaller.
    2. The navigation links would be better float left rather than centered, as would the header. Then you could use CSS hover to the full width of the box with a light blue background. Would look nice!

    There the only points I can notice at the moment as there is still a bit of development work left to do with the design, however looking at his old website, vast improvement so far!

    What do you mean when you say the navigation should float left?

    Basically the links inside of the navigation area are centered. They would be better suited at the left hand side of he box.

    I really, really like this! I know you have a lot of work yet to do but I truly like how this is laid out. Great job!

    It's okay. If it's a teacher's site, it looks almost to be almost too stylish.

    2 things though:
    1- I don't like those icons. They look like crappy Microsoft clipart. I would recommend going to
    www.iconfinder.com and looking for an academic set. Or take some time to make your own.

    2- Your own site actually looks a lot cooler/trendier than this site.

    Finally, I visited your site: is the z-index for your fixed menu proper? Because when I scroll, it's fixed, but seems to go under everything. Or it might be my browser. Just thought you'd like to know.

    The mock up looks great!
    Although I would recommend getting paid hosting rather than the free hosting you're using

    Yea I figured out that I need to set a z-index I just dont have the time right now to fix it. The header of this mockup is supposed to be almost like on my site. As for the icons this is just a mockup. When I make the site I will make my own icons.
