Instead of welcome as the only word on the front page, I would use this first impression space to grab the attention of the visitor or give a concise intro to your company. Perhaps let them know what problems you solve for them.

Also, I think it is strange that on the front page the 4 portfolio images dim on hover. This seems like you would want to illuminate on hover and dim out the other 3.

Hope this helps!

Hello Jason thanks for your message.

One: Thats a grate idea about adding more information instead of just welcome, I will get on that now.

Two: I am working on that part now, I am adding in text which will appear when a user hovers over a project.

Thanks again :)

Your site looks nice! I had two little suggestions that might help the site.

  • On your footer, if you add an ampersand character in front of the word copy, and a semicolon after the word copy ( & + copy + ; = © ), it will produce the copyright character.
  • On your services page, you may want to include the text for each service in the link. That would make it a bigger click target, and it will be much easier for those using touch screens to expand each section.

Just my two cents. =)

Adam - your website looks awesome!

However, when I viewed your homepage on a 1920 x 1080 monitor, the grey-lonely-beach picture repeated horizontally. Either fixing the image size options or centering the image with white-space on the side would fix this issue. In your code, I noticed that your had actually set the background to 'repeat-x' , so if this is the desired effect, then I retake my critique.

Additionally, on your "About" page, the "Portfolio" and "Services" button hover-colors did not blend well together. The combination of the white page background, light-grey button background and the white button text made it hard to read when highlighted. I don't want to mess with your color-scheme, but perhaps making the background color a bit darker would improve the readability. Something along this line...

.MainAbout .introAbout .buttonWork:hover {
  background: #c6c6c6;
  text-decoration: none;
  color: #272727;

Keep working on it, can't wait to see how it turns out!
