Nice colour choice. A logo or some graphics may spice up your site a bit.

Very nice design, though there are some stylesheet errors:

It should be "font-face", not "font"
div#content has a syntax error for margin-right
p.meta and div#wp_quotes are missing a semicolon after margin-right: 0.9em

Also, the JavaScript you're using to hold the background image static causes my Linux Firefox to scroll the screen in a staggering fashion. You might create a singular background image and then do something like this in your stylesheet's .body section:
Code: [ Select ]
background-image : url("http://path/to/my/bg.jpg");
background-position : top left;
background-attachment : fixed;
background-repeat : no-repeat;
  1. background-image : url("http://path/to/my/bg.jpg");
  2. background-position : top left;
  3. background-attachment : fixed;
  4. background-repeat : no-repeat;

Yeah really nice, clean design, perfect separation of content from styles.

The css could be improved by using shorthand code & I find your top links "Jump to Content" & "Jump to Navigation" too dark, maybe that was your intention?


Otherwise good job :)

I like the site, especially the half cube in the bottom corner.

Nice graphics, and its a subtle not in your face site. Your site is the just kind I like.

Very nice layout and interesting content. I even commented on one of the articles about web design prices... and found a bug regarding the format of the comment form ;) when filling in contact info (name, email, www) I put http:// in the website url and it displays double http://

That's a little confusing. I would suggest putting http:// as default in the comment form and changing the script OR putting a small footnote not to include http://

But over all.. very nice!

I like that it's clean and easy to navigate. I don't like the colors, though, too dark for me, sorry.

It validates for w3c.org. Good work!

WOW nice clean layout. Sleak.

Now as it is a wordpress there is nothing more to tell. But I can just say that the layout is nice one.

Like the design.

Simple and effective.

your navs jump about a bit in IE when you roll over them.

might be a bug, but you might have designed it this way.

good luck

Can't say I'm a big fan of the colour pink, but you definitely got it to work here. I like the subtle transparencies.

Overall great site :)

P.S. This would convert well into a flash-based site.

The layout, for this website is very good. The colours match well, and it's nice. The only problem is that it looks like one of the layouts that Freewebs offers, for free. The free layout can be located here. Apart from that, the website is very nice.

Nice use of css!
Looks great!

As some one else mentioned, it probably needs a bit more imagery.

But the whole thing just great great. Keep up the good work.
