    Hi there,

    I am looking for peoples options on the size of my website and how it looks in your browser.

    I did not make my website responsive and think it may look too big in smaller resolutions. Looking for feedback on this so I know whether im ok to go ahead or whether I should start again and make responsive.

    Thanks in advance

    I think the image is way too big, a lot of people these days have laptops, tablets etc, when they enter your site they are pretty much going to see your image first and not much about your business.

    The words seem like a wall of text to me, it seems squashed and small line spacing between each line, consider spacing out a bit more to make it easy to read on the eyes.

    Missing the favicon

    Checked out the portfolio page (http://www.charlyanderson.co.uk/char...portfolio.html) and clicked on the images, would be good for a larger image of the website to be displayed (lightbox).

    Wondering why you are using this url http://www.charlyanderson.co.uk/charlynew/blog.html would it be better to use this http://www.charlyanderson.co.uk/blog.html not sure why "charlynew/" is there for? (unless for testing purposes as I found that http://www.charlyanderson.co.uk/blog.html does work on your site) better just use one extension as I believe Google penalizes for duplicate content.

    Hi Donkey,

    Thanks for your feedback. I had the website in a separate directory whilst I was testing but there were a few odd links so have fixed those - thanks for pointing out.

    I also haven't created a favicon - completely forgot so thanks for that one too!

    I see what your saying about the logo being too big, I have a high resolution screen and find it easy to forget others will not always see it the same as me. I am hoping to make the logo smaller on my next site and make it responsive. I am constantly changing my site in a bid to improve my skills

    Twinky,

    Be patient. The comments will come.

    I briefly glanced at your website. I really like your logo. Donkey says it's too big, but on my 17" screen, it looks pretty nice. I think that if you plan to have a lot of other content on your home page, you should make your logo smaller. Or compromise maybe? Make it 5% opaque and use it as a fixed background?

    The rest of your home page was just cluttered. Looks bad. It looks like a layout for an SEO marketing firm, but with a nicer color scheme (your pink on white is attractive).

    -R

    Way too wordy. For a home page, there's way too much to read, and nothing to encourage me to read it. There's no white space to separate anything.

    The logo, flat out, is too big. It's too big for huge retina Mac desktops, and it's painfully huge on mobile. Here's what it looks like on mobile:

    Portrait:
    Attachment 2660

    Landscape:
    Attachment 2661

    You really don't have to make every single site "responsive". Just making it look good on smaller screens is enough for many sites. Start with the viewport meta tag, then maybe set the width in percent with a max-width declaration on the logo. That would get you at least usable across the board, and it's hardly responsive or adaptive.

    It looks good on my 19" screen. However, your layout isn't user friendly at all. Ronald is right, there is no white space to separate your texts. It looks too congested. Though your web design looks clean, I still find it a bit dull and your menu bar is unnoticeable

    Thanks for your feed back comments, I get where your all coming from and will take these on board.

    I am very, very new to web design so will try not to take the comments to heart and use it all experience.

    My last website looked very empty and that was my reason for the text... I just wanted it too look like there was actually stuff on there and not so bare.

    It's pretty simple and wide. My mark is 4 I think it would be too large for mobile devices.
