So far I've only worked on the index.

Let me know what you think of the layout.

I've had quite a few failed attempts but I like this one:

I'm still working on optimizing the javascript too; so expect a mess if you care to look at it lol

  • Seriously long load time at the main page.
  • I like the logo with the large A tieing together the first and last name.
  • I have a 24" monitor turned portrait and the main page still extends beyond it. I wouldn't do that on a home page. Content pages fine. But the home page shouldn't require scrolling, in my personal opinion.
  • Stuff seems cut off until you scroll down. Its just odd.

Spoiler


Don't state on the home page that the site will cater to mobile devices, when it tiny and unreadable on an iPhone. If you are going to cater to mobile devices then you need a tailored page for phone resolution.

None of the pages have any content to comment on.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm working on the mobile integration now; I'll try and have it implemented by the end of the week.

As for the load time, I'm looking to switch to another host. Go Daddy is awful :dontgetit:

I'm also working on having the content automatically resize to fit the user's resolution; as for now I'm working mostly with the jQuery effects and the overall layout.

Like I said, I should have the home page completed by the end of the week (or maybe next week).

I would appreciate any comments or feedback along the road; I still have much to do before it's actually complete :)

Thanks!

I almost left due to the long load time, this is, for me, the large images you use. I don't have fios and I generally leave a page if I can't see it while the images load. Just my input. :whistling:

Why do you have 2 menus that have the same indexes on both? Also load time is horrible

What two menus are you referring to?
