    I can see you have got an idea on what you want to achieve - however there are a few pointers I would say. Starting from the top:

    1. Logo, if that is going to be the final logo it needs to be on a white background, this will help stand the logo out a little bit more, Blue and Red don't work well together.

    2. Menu system, too large unfortunately. Make the items a bit smaller and that may help. Also again don't use red, change it to something more elegable as well.

    3. depending on the size of the image within the slider, thats fine, however purple may not suit it correctly. This would be down to client choice of colour schemes really.

    4. Welcome text is a bit off putting.
    (i) change the "welcome to ...." to a <h1> tag instead of paragraphs as you want to basically say HI WE ARE HERE! instead of whispering.
    (ii) Paragraph text is okay (im not a copywrite so cant really comment on it) however I would say, remove the underline from it. That just detracts from the actual content.

    5. I would make your footer text smaller, its unusual to have a huge copyright notice at the bottom of the page. Make it font-size 10 or less but don't go below 8px.

    Other than those, it has the beginnings of being a good website.

    I do suggest taking a look at inspiration sites like HERE and HERE to help give you an idea on what other people have done to try to achieve the same sort of thing for garages, keep me posted on how it goes.

    Are you sure you want to use that gradient? That makes it look very outdated. Mixed with the font choice of the menu and the size i feel like this is a site found in the archives of something from 1990.

    The purple needs to go. I understand that is a placeholder but it throws off the whole page. Maybe look into an image you can use as a placeholder instead.

    NEVER center a paragraph. This is something taught to us in design that you may not have been taught. Id also remove the underline and making the welcome part an H1 like stated above.

    Have you taken anytime to checking how other sites look? Do a little googling for your "competition". i know this is probably a made up company but you can still research its competition. Just check out whats working for them.

    Personally this looks like it could have been thrown together as an afterthought in 10minutes or so. Simple is not always the same as being easy. This may have not been taught to you as you are not a designer. Is this all done in photoshop? Or were you asked to code the site? If you were asked to code it then link it to us as that is going to be more important to the teacher than the overall look of the page.

    Thank you for your input vapr
    ive been asked to design it, im using illustrator after the design is finished i will have to turn it into a pdf and submit it , i will be changing all of those things suggested thank you.

    Section B: Digitalise the interface
    Create your interface in Adobe Illustrator.

    When creating your design take into account:
    • Design a home page
    • Design a minimum of 3 additional pages to suit your content and business type
    • Create and include a basic logo
    • Use spot colours for the logo – only use one or two spot colours on the logo itself
    • Think about your use of layers and rename them appropriately
    • Make use of different layers for different screens and content
    • Include a navigation bar
    • Keep your design consistent
    • Be innovative and creative
    • Appeal to your client and audience
    • Think about your colour mode and other technial parametres for your files eg. colour modes of your document set up, and dimensions of your page
    • Your final design must show evidence of application of the design elements of texture, shape, colour, and type and the design principles of balance, emphasis, proportion and unity
    • Supply your images you use

    These are the parameters for the assignment

    I will be changing almost everything except the picture i have now put in and the changed text
