hi everyone,

although i'm a graphic designer and competent in flash, i'm still learning about dreamweaver/html etc.

so... i'd appreciate any comments, good or bad about my personal site.

thanks in advance.

First, Nice design, Unique

Second
Put your Divs inside a CSS Style Sheet instead of as and when you use them.

onlyican is right for the Divs and CSS, otherwise I would say I think the design is a bit dark, but it is nice (especially the menu) I prefer white based sites, but thats up to your tastes, overall, very nice site.

i like the menu but the rest of it i dont care for. graphics designers really need to have more on their website before it would catch someones eye rather than a rgb light twisted. the design is a little dark and could definately use better graphics. but i did like the menu so 5/10

thanks,

onlyican - i'll have a look at the div/css thing - once i work out what you mean!

netmaster - did you miss the fact that there are graphics/worksamples within the site? if so then maybe my menu isn't good enough.

I think what he was trying to say was that if you are a graphic designer, your home page should combine all of your best skills and show what you can do, before they even look through your portfolio.

I do like the menu system I have to say, although having the items as numerical rather than titles or thumbnails isn't always to everyone's preference.

Hey Tony

About the css, wphilipw probably meant that you have your css inline with the html. If you have it in a seperate file it may speed things up a little. With regard to the seo side of things have the css seperate the crawler doesn't have go through all that as it relates to graphics and not what it's primary goal is. I'm in South Africa and the menu looks fine to me just the the numbers take a while to load.

I like some of your work, keep it up
