    Hi guys, I'm wanting to know what your thoughts are on this design of mine that I have now completed phase 3.

    I'd like to know what you guys think, and how I can improve this design, colours, fonts and so on, You all know the drill.

    Basically the scheme of this is to be colour neutral, to not take too much attention away from the content, whilst making it look nice, and feel nice but not be too bulky.

    So feedback, feedback, and feedback.

    Maybe change the colors to the header image. Blue font on white background looks like google ads to me.
    The font size on content is too small, hard to read.

    @AboutWeb: Do you have a colour in mind for the header text?

    Please note, the design was distorted by Imageshack.us, it was designed in "1280 × 1024" which makes the Body of Content much more readable, even for someone who needs glasses like me :( But it appears to show properly when viewed as the original JPG and in PS, whereas the uploaded image is smaller by comparison and more distorted.

    Oh Poop... I just realised that I posted this in the wrong forum... LMFAO!!!

    Mod Please?

    Hmmm, can't think of a good color right now, but try one that will match color of your images. I could say even more, having a black background and also black navigation menu, is depressing..if you ask me. Can you make a lighter background on your navmenu ?

    Lighter background on the navimenu will look out of shape with the blending on the edges of the Body of Content, that's the only issue. You will see a noticeable square rather then blending.
    I have a couple of ideas for a replacement of the header text issue, am running them by some of my crew first, will keep you guys updated within the next 10 - 30 minutes.

    Thanks.

    Since you are using Photoshop, as I noticed the mirror effect on your header text, you could use a different effect that will fill up the blank space, such as "Gradient Tool". Or you can come up with something better :)

    Ok, so, I got raving reviews from my posse about this one...

    This is the original design aspect ratio so please let me know what you think with the modifications, I think it looks more filled up, and still looks clean, not too packed.

    Now your header looks a lot better. Only the navmenu I don't like...
    Take a look at these 2 websites:
    http://www.inowweb.com/
    http://www.quantumcloud.com/
    They both have black navmenu, but the the background isn't black, so the navmenu looks better there.

    You may improve your font with better especially WEST DESIGN which is your brand name but it din not look shine at all.
    Beside that the content you enter did not show you professional enough . You need to put more effort in order to build trust to your client as well.

    Maybe if you make sections with borders and apply some margin to the content...

    I think your desing is too oldschool and not trendy, just go and see some monster templates samples and you'll se what i'm talking about!

    The photo looks more like one of a customer service sales person than an IT consultant. Perhaps better to have a nice logo instead of a photo as the photo is distracting and giving the wrong message. The banner font looks anorexic and I can't read the mirror image of the fonts. I'd go for something a little more bold and assertive.

    Dude? She's a chick.

    And adding to that, she hasn't even been back to this thread in over 3 months.

    Decrease the size of the images, and try to write description in order and it look good.

    Yeah, i recon the black background of the buttons donesn't look right either...

    But also, the headers next to the images are too close to the images, they should be in line with the bullet points.

    Still, nice one dudette :)
