Hi there guys

I live in East London South Africa and this site is going to be one 5 site promoting EL. The others aren't very good and I'm hoping mine would have a better acceptance by my audience. The graphic design isn't great but then again I'm not a designer unfortunately. I would love some suggestions as to how I can improve the aesthetic feel of the site. I think from a coding side of things it is pretty clean and lightweight but if you can spot anything please let me know.

Thanks in advance

Well, to be honest I think it's a little hard to comment on the design - since it's actually a template generated by the CMS "Joomla".

Just a few things though:
1) Try add some padding to the contents/text area so that it's not too cramped up onto the sides.

2) Try take a look into graphic designing. Pictures can make a huge difference and impact on your website. Remember: "A picture is worth a thousand words".

3) Maybe add a background colour. It's a little bare, to be honest.

Just work on those few things and I think you're website will be pretty good!
Good Luck! :thumbsup:

Yeah sorry, I actually disable the temple I had and reverted back to this one early. Do you have have must experience with joomla templates? I'd like one designed because none of the available ones I have seen are any good.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Can anyone point me in the direction of someone who can do a template for me. I'm looking for a freelancer!

Thanks
