    Hello, iam new here too, and new in html and css, I think your website looks really good. I just wanted to let you know that it doesn't have to do that you are a woman, you should never say that

    Oaky Ill shoot.

    You have a nice start.. truly, but here is what my eye is catching.


    • The hero image seems to fall " out of bounds". what I mean to say is looks like you have a container running at 1080px and the image itself breaks out of that, if it looked more inline with that, would be a good start.
    • What we do... to small, not attention grabbing, don't be afraid to go bigger.
    • Font colors, not consistent. Your using different colors for P text, I'd try to make that more consistent for readability.
    • Border around images in "why choose us" , kill those. Actually they seem to be thru-out the site.


    In a nutshell, find some consistency, will help it look more polished.

    My question is why are you offering something you can't do?? Why do you want it to look professional if you aren't professional? I am not going to knock you for using a wordpress theme because maybe that can be your nitch for people who want a cheap looking WP site. But basically it tells me you can't code, your graphics look like stock images which shows me you can't design graphics, which are both skill-sets you need in order to operate in this industry.

    If it takes you ages to finish a site, then really, you need to learn. It takes an infant ages to walk, and they too need to learn how to. I think you just need to learn what you are doing before you actually start offering your services. Even when I first started out, I wasn't publicly putting myself out there because I wasn't good enough to.

    Forget Fireproofgfx's observation about the theme. Forget that you're using the Vantage theme. Forget the look of your site. The look of the site is the least of your problems.

    Your problem is much deeper than the look of your site and pay attention to Fireproofgfx's point about what you know, and more importantly what you don't know. You don't know how to code, or you wouldn't be starting with a theme. You've stolen some stock graphics, and ones that have floated around for ages. The logos you've used for your logo designs were entered into 99Designs logo competitions and not even selected. Your copy is clearly written by someone who doesn't speak English as his/her mother tongue. To be blunt, you'll never get this to look professional because the underlying services aren't professional.

    What I would suggest you do is scrap this whole thing, go onto a freelancer portal, and work cheap until you gain the experience and knowledge required to look at your site again. By "cheap", I mean "no more than $7-$8 USD/hour for the sake of gaining experience" cheap. Get your skill level up. Solve problem Then redo this site from the ground up.

    Because you're selling design services. Design services require creativity and original thought. Ready-made themes show neither.

    Why this is so hard?!

    You can do whatever you want, some people will pay you to do anything but to separate yourself from the large number of competition you are going to want to stand out/create a style and A style isnt taking a theme and altering it, thats just a process.
