    Pets: A kitty kat
    If you are just planning on having this site as a portfolio for prospective employers to come to - do you really think that A "kitty kat" is a good point to write down for About Me.

    An employer is likely to look at your whole website - so proper english should most probably prevail on the site.

    Overall, pretty good site - although a resemblance to a free template isn't always a good thing if you say you have great computer & web design skills. (which looking at previous site versions seems to be an honest remark)

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    No I'm not the designer for zymic.com

    And yes it does resemble zymics template design, but I swear I did not use it. I loved that design so much it inspired me to re-create my whole site. I tried real hard not to make it look exactly like his design, but I obviously failed at that since you guys picked up on it right away. I even e-mailed the websmaster of zymic.com telling him I loved his design and was not going to use anything from his template directly. I showed him a beta version of the site and he seemd to have no problem with it.

    But honest to God I made everything myself. Seems though I should re-design a few graphics or the interface layout a bit so it doesn't resemble zymic too much.

    Any thoughts on how best to do this ?

    I thought about going for a glass feel. Like the menu panel, and have the titles engraved beneath the glass, to give it a casing kind of feel.

    What do you think ?

    But overall, thanks for the feedback, tells me I still have some work to do on my site before I call it "final"

    Cheers,

    change colours maybe brighten it up a little bit ?

    I'd personally make the navigation a bit more interesting
    maybe some roleovers on your navigation?

    maybe add a random script so that each time the page is refreshed the screenshot of the latest project changes to a different view ?

    just a couple of suggestions for ya

    I don't like it, honestly.... don't like zynic either, though.

    Biggest problem is that your banner is WAY too high contrast, man

    im not too fond of it either..

    The header nearly hypnotises me.. It overpowers the site completely..
    I get sick of seeing those boxed content sites after a while..

    Overall, its slick but not my type of thing 2.5/5
