wow. looks great. Especially because the first time I loaded it it showed up without css and I was like: WTF?

I really like your idea. It is very original. haven`t seen a website that looks just like yours, or it is based on the same idea.

It loads relatively fast, and due to your css knowledge, which I can see from far away, you did a very good job! I think it is one of the greatest website I have seen around.

Keep in touch m8.

Looks great! Valid XHTML.. but invalid CSS..

Maybe you should hide the filter from any browsers other than IE:

Code: [ Select ]
.post-text h2 { background:none; filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(enabled=true, sizingMethod=scale src='gfx/content_top.png'); }

If I am not mistaken, that filter will not interfere with other browsers.

Change the color of the text or change the bg image because it's very hard to read the letters

Very nice site. Everything looks clean and is presented very well. You scandinavians always have such nice design skills. (I'm jealous).

One comment:

under your portfolio section, where you display your work. All of the pieces of work have Titles which seem to be links that don't go anywhere. I don't know if you were planning on doing something with it, but it was a little confusing at first when I was trying to see samples of your work by clicking on the title of the piece like 'ACOHUD' and it wouldn't go anywhere. Then I realized the link was below it. But I just thought that having the titles be links was a bit confusing.

Excellent site though.

Nice clean and creative design almost new and original. It is just a bit extra wide. If you can cut the width to 800px. and/or center it. But a very nice to visit site, great photos. I would like to comment on the content, but I don't understand swedish. You will need a english version so it can be more universal and receive more hits.

Keep Up the Good Work!

I dont rly understand what you mean, are you talking about the <h1> Title in black color at the top of each presented project?

The link is @ the bottom of the box and blue with a hover, to me it's very clear and easy, but always interesting to hear some1 else's opinion, hope u bother taking time to answer this and try to explain abit more so I get it :)

Yes I do mean your <h1> titles presented in black at the top of each presented project.

They seem to be links that don't go anywhere. Maybe I'm just crazy.

The setup makes sense to me with the links in blue at the bottom of the box. But the <h1> titles seem to be links when in my opinion they dont' need to be. Unless you were planning on expanding or something in the future.

It was just a little nitpicky personal thing that I noticed. It's not something crucial that I think should be changed. I just felt it was worth mentioning.

ok, now I get what you talking about, but I have a hard time seeing it that way, to me they look like titles, and there is no cursor change when u onmouseover them, anyways... I'll take a close look @ it and see if I can think of another suiting way of doing it
