:star::star::star::star-half::star-empty: Impact

The overall aesthetics is nice but there are some things you can do to look even better.

-You can work on view all button.. is not proper aligned there and to simple .. maybe aligned to the right is better.

-The main menu text i think is to slim, maybe a little bigger and stronger.
-More attention for the spacing when making containers for example the orange mouse over with the brush... the space used at left and at the right is not the same with the top and bottom.. At the top you have just 10 px use 20-30 px, maybe make the slider a little higher. The same at the blog & twitter module.. 10 pixel is not enough use 20-25px..

-The inputs if i were you i would make them bigger in height, maybe 40px.
-The send it button text a little biger and stronger.. it`s an action.. you must DO it you must have a strong bold button... not a shy one <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>.

I`m not sure about the 4 circles in each corner.. its to symmetric.. I would keep the logo and align it with the orange mouse over (the one with the brush), maybe keep the right email button to or(the functionality is the same as the contact button) you can put a search there or a phone number or something.. At the footer the same, the circles are not aligned with the content, maybe a text logo at the left and some social icons at right are more proper.

Last but not least i would find some nice pictures to put there and the outcome i think it would be a little bit cleaner.

There are some other changes that i would do if i were you but these are the major ones.

Thanks DaJyDesigns, i have to say i agree with everything you said,
i have worked more on this design and when i did i noticed that some of the alignment was off.
I have made quite a few changes and will upload the updated version as soon as i get a day to work.

No problem Daniel,

Those were just some pointings from my side, but that doesn`t mean you have to change it. Your work should stay as you like it, not as other people tel you, maybe that person don`t knows what they say and you make the changes for the worse.

If you see the mistakes than it`s good, choose the changes that you think are better than now.

Some critics on the whole aspect.
I can see a bit of orange underneath the 1st button tagged with JM in the left upper corner.
Also the cover has tiles in it. I can see 4 rows in that navy blue.

other than that, looks impeccable.

Nice, clean and unusual design.
But this will be bad for viewing at laptop/notebook resolution 1280x800.
Although very nice.
DanielMckendry's avatar
Thanks Viking, it will be a responsive design and will design all responsive versions when it's finished :)

I really like this. Your color and placement choices are quite good. Very clean and usable design. My one criticism would be that I can definitely see some seams in the dark blue tiling texture you're using at the top of the page. You might want to make those edges blend a little better, or as a last resort, maybe drop the contrast and make it more uniformly dark blue. I wouldn't change anything else though, nice job.

Thanks goldomega,
yea i have noticed that too, i quite liked the seems but they won't be there, i will be
optimizing the texture, making it alot smaller and seamless for the web :)

Congrats on the DD! :iconclappingplz:

Thank you, that's awesome :)
That is some very nice work. I'm looking to get into web design professionally and that sets the bar for me. Most of my stuff looks pretty pedestrian compared to that design.
