    This is the start of my portfolio, I have been spending a lot of time learning php, design patterns, and object-oriented design. I want to use this domain as a portfolio to showcase my progression as a blog of sort while still maintaining it as a portfolio. I also will be creating subdomains here for sub projects, that is still to come.

    I was not going to post yet as I am lacking in content, but I want some basic feedback on layout and colors. I was going for simplicity and color, while having somewhat of a portfolio feel where I can update my project development, and showcase work.

    The site is working on a simple bootstrap that processes all calls, is then ran through a router, in which controllers are a called using what I would believe to be a factory design. I just want to see if anyone can cause any types of errors or bugs, as I'm still new to these things. I'll be updating tonight with links and forms, but for now critiquing colors and layout will do.

    Thanks to all the guys helping here in the forums, and especially ganners and Kevin with php help, and helping me understanding a lot of common things that make a huge difference.

    Edit: Couple of typos, silly phones and forums.
    Notes: I did notice one bug with my footer, mainly on mobile devices. It creates like a margin left for some reason, not sure yet.

    Zboost,

    So it's a portfolio you want reviewed... but there's nothing in it??????

    Bump it when you have something in it.

    Also, I don't like red text. Consider using it for accents here and there.

    I thought it was orange.
    I have a few projects to add, but I need to finish this and I'm having a hard time finding a happy medium for a portfolio, not sure why.

    NO, he wants the layout and colours reviewed. I see you at least commented on the colours part - what colour would you suggest instead of red for the text?

    Completely restarted from scratch, and took some input on color. Maybe the colors are not as loud, and it has cleaner look. As I started back from scratch I have to re-cook all my CSS today so it will be getting updates consistently through the week, especially today. While the wife is away, the nerd can play!

    Note: Its only in its image stages, so it only works on full resolutions monitors atm. :cry:

    This is real orange! I think it would look better against a lighter shade of white, but I understand that you want to use a darker shade of white to not blind viewers.

    Also, I noticed that your design is one big graphic right now. I suggest you break them down into multiple (header.jpg, logo.jpg). Another issue is that if people's screens aren't huge desktops, the orange swirl and the navigation menu will overlap each other. I suggest using a set width container (typical width: 960px) to wrap around content, so that the menu items will stay put no matter what the screen size.

    FML! In the middle of doing this I over wrote my new design while I had everything merged. Nice little set back. Lost all my layers now. :cry:
