    Doing a design for order - Need feedback!

    I am working on a web design for an acquaintance.

    I am not done building it, but feedback would still be nice so far into the project

    Here it is! http://mdd.knyazev.cf/index.html

    He is a graphic designer and he asked me to make something like this: Home - EMINEM

    So 2 things:

    1 - is it good?

    2 - we settled on the price of 100$, am I under-charging?

    I would leave slider on home page only.
    Every price is ok for start.

    Don't you think it would look somewhat bland, or too dark?

    You should design it to look bright and happy
    Slider on start page is ok to make attention, but on dipper pages you have important informations to show, and slider is taking space and attention from the content. Maybe smaller, static images connected to text message.

    I cant see the site for some reason. It brings me to a page that is trying to sell me something.

    What types of design does he do? Is he self taught or does he have an education?

    The reason i ask is because id assume he would be a little more critical on the design if he was truly a designer.

    As far as design is concerned it should reflect his brand. Colors, typography choices, artwork, all should be related to the branding he has created. A logo is not a brand, just a small part of it.

    He and I are both self-taught, we are both still in highschool so not much of an actual education there.

    As for the website, I did some maintenance to optimize some stuff. I now updated the URL in the post accordingly.

    Keep in mind the site is not responsive.

    It tells me the server cannot be found.

    If you 2 are both serious about both of these lines of work you should spend a little time learning responsive design, its really not that hard and i noticed most of your sites dont use it. I know it may not be important to you at the moment but in my opinion a site thats not responsive is going to feel out of date.. Obviously there are some exceptions..

    Your friend should learn more about design. Right now is the perfect time before he picks up any bad habits. One would be branding. I am only saying this because that eminem site just doesnt convey a "designer" feel. It is great for his image but probably not so much for your friend. Maybe i misunderstood what you were referencing from the site and/or you may not care what i think. Just trying to give you some insight

    For one, making decisions based on what he "likes" rather than what communicates the right message. This is typically done with colors but one example i have is a client i worked with asked for a logo with a raven because he thought they looked cool. Even though a Raven symbolizes things like death or betrayal. I cant really think of a better example as i usually help the client work past these small inconsistencies.

    He should understand things like negative space. Learn things like the gestalt principles: similarity, continuation, proximity, closure, and figure..

    A lot of people seem to jump into this profession and call themselves a designer without taking the time to understand the difference between a designer and an artist, myself included.
