I think your site looks like a generic run-of-the-mill template.

I also think "deepu@designingstudios.com" is an hysterical email address.

The fact that there is no pricing information on your page has put me off of even trying you out - I know that I can get something from http://www.xhtmlchop.com/ for $45, or http://www.psd2html.com/ for $159 - but from you? I have to request a quote, wait for you to get back to me, only to then (possibly) realize that you're out of my price range. On a project where speed is a major factor, the "request a quote, get a quote, decide on quote" process basically makes your service useless compared to XhtmlChop's "upload PSD, fill in credit card details, wait for notification that the job is finished".

thanks for your reply. We don't want the price as a main factor for any project, So we have not placed price info in our website and it depends upon the depth of the design wat do u say?

Charging 45$ for any website may (the design may small or large) i don't think this a reasonable one. But as per requested we charge 50$ for homepage and 30$ for link page. We can deliver in 4-8Hrs.

FYI

Just did a XHTML validation on your website and it came back with 35 errors. Hardly professional when you offer a "valid" XHTML template design service. (Validation carried out on 25/06/2010).

I would be surprised if you get any clients.

Also, your website keeps refreshing every second, then loads after about 10 seconds.

However, I love the design and colour scheme.

So you charge maybe 100$ a design done in 4-8 hours? That's enough info right there to tell me you're an amateur. Real design work takes easily 24+ hours to get a good product and even more on the coding, it's not a day long project to make a great site, more like weeklong (500-2000$ range) and even monthlong (2000+)

Now that that's out of the way I'll take a look at the site itself.

To be honest better than I thought it would be, you have something going in some areas, yes, but still a ways to go in other areas.

The footer has no reason to be florescent green first off.

Header needs to be moved up to get rid of the white bar on top, seems unintentional, might be I'm using chrome.

The portfolio area is clever but it'd be nice if the paper wasn't cropped and retained its natural shape.

Though as far as the girl in the banner are you people really not aware that sex sells? Shocker, I know... That was actually a good move in some cases.

Price-wise you're still green, read up on some freelancing sites to get a better idea of how to deal it out.

Design wise you're dang close if not already there but keep learning, the worst thing you can do is to assume you know enough to stop.

Here we did mentioned $100 for designing we are talking about a homepage (psd file) converting to html and even the time 4-8 hrs is also mentioned for psd to html conversion not for a website (homepage) design. We take 2-3 days for designing (1 homepage + 1linkpage)
