My new website

Posted 16 February 2011 - 04:46 AM

Hi guys,

After a sudden influx of web design jobs coming my way via referrals, I've decided to finish off my website that has been lying on my hard drive for nearly a year. I have updated the copy and spruced it up a bit.

http://www.fluxspark.co.uk

Let me know what you think.

Thanks.

The look of the site is nice and clean. I like the blue that you decided to use. Links work so that was a plus. I like the site. There is good balance.

Looks nice, though my eye was drawn straight to a grammatical error.

There may be more but I haven't really read the entire site.

Thanks Neverpool, but I can't see the grammatical error you pointed out.

I believe he's saying that a company name should be singular, not plural. Thus "Towing.biz is a tow truck company".

I think you should go through you entire site carefully reading every single word and look for grammatical/spelling errors.

You need a darker yellow, this one doesn't stand out at all from the white background and is slightly hard to read.

The gradient gray to white needs to have a much lighter gray. The point of a gradient is to be subtle and help flow, and in this case it's blatant and draws too much attention.

You need to always have a line-height property set in your CSS to be 1.5-2x the font size at minimum for readability.

The titles on the right are too light and hard to read.

Thanks for the further feedback.

I have made some of the changes that Lemur mentioned regarding the line-height and colours of the right hand side text. I have also toned down the gray on the gradients. I will get round to the orange colours when I have time.

I have also corrected the grammatical errors pointed above.
