    Post Website Design Companies Website Goes Live: Opinions Please??

    New site replacing my old site that I hated. Goal is to look like a company that can handle designing a site for others. Be harsh but I'd also like to hear the concepts and thoughts of the parts of the site you liked. It does require a phone and PC to experience all aspects of the fully Responsive design. Thanks!

    I am starting to get very tired of people who use purchased themes and then present themselves as web design professionals.

    So you hated your old website, which used the Salient theme:

    Lead Website Design | Located in Williamstown, West Virginia

    And you're using a new website, which uses the Gardener theme.

    Maybe the reason you hated your old website is that it wasn't yours.

    I like the older WP theme Lead Website Design | Located in Williamstown, West Virginia better though some of the colors didn't fit properly. But I also agree with Mare. Really your site looks like someone that just downloaded a theme and slaps on a "I am a web designer tag" with no concept of flow of colors, proper fonts, or any graphic comprehension skills (all of the graphics look like stock images, correct me if I am wrong) If you are changing your site up because you weren't receiving clients, there is more to it than it just being your website. You can change the themes but all in all you still have the same skill set.

    You are right Kyneth , instead of replacement we developers should focused on creating new, latest and responsive websites.



    Thanks

    The design is very good, even though it may be a purchased theme. But the bold keywords you have done on content for the SEO purposes is annoying. Also, on a side note, bold keywords do not have any value in SEO today. It may even cause your site penalized on account of spamming.

    Yup. Here you go. (67 Euros, or about $85 US)

    Edit : For reference, this was the first theme they used. ($58)

    Seems like they don'y mind spending money to try to fool people...
