My First Website

Hi Everyone,

I just created my first website, and would love some feedback. What do you think of the design and layout?

Personally, I do not like it. And that for several reasons:

  1. The website has a very basic feel to it with some very odd design choices, in Google Chrome for example the logo is cut off in the header, the tips of the triangles are slices off. The background of the header has a dirty white color to it. Yet directly below it, the navigation bar has a pure white background color. The navigation buttons have a super wide margin on either sides, have a considerable margin at the top, yet are then placed rather close to the suddenly grey separator bar. The header of actual text has yet another color of grey attached to it. Now giving us blue, green and already 2 shades of grey. The e-mail address box is a bit difficult to tell, but it appears to be yet another shade of grey? The submit box is certainly a different shade of blue and green however.

  2. Upon navigating the website the user is confronted with constant sliding effects. Fun in a tech demo or as part of a portfolio showcase for something self-created. But on an actual website like this, it adds nothing.

  3. The source code of the website, it is an absolute nightmare. And likely also explains the reason on as to why the above two points are there. It reads prefab website all over, probably through a service like wix.com. And it shows.

All of this is not meant to be harsh, don’t get me wrong. But your website is like your greeting card, it is where first impressions are made. I would suggest to restart the design from the ground up. Look at some design portfolios available, e.g. from FullyIllustrated. Don’t even think about the HTML or CSS in this stage yet, just mock it up in e.g. Illustrator or InDesign. And once you have the look going for it what you want, translate it to HTML.

Looks nice!

The website looks pretty good but I see that you have to do a little bit of work there. Personally I am not a web designer or smth like this and I can’t give you any advices, but I think that I can suggest you a lot of things that are related to digital marketing in order to increase the traffic on your online place. I am working for https://crowdo.net/blog/crowd-marketing/, on our website you can read more about seo and other interesting promoting tools, if you want me to help you, I would be glad to do that.

its not loading for me :confused:
