    Hi,
    I like the colors/design, but it takes forever to load (over 30 seconds) - big nono - and there are a few bugs - rg in the top right hand corner its rendering some code.
    Cheers

    Hahaha :p Thanks Jimlad! Developing some of the other pages now, and tweaked a few things on the home page:

    - Changed section headers to Georgia Italic
    - Changed project descriptors/skills to Georgia Italic
    - Shifted the grouping lines to the right a bit (Thinking about taking them out all-together. Any thoughts?)

    Hopefully I'll have some of it up soon :)

    Slightly updated version of the homepage + portfolio page. I love me some constructive criticism, whether I take it on board or not :p

    Find the designs here:
    Homepage, Portfolio.

    It's nice. But that's it really, just nice.

    It needs some personality, some flair, something of yourself in there. All i see is gloss and white space, there's no 'definition' to it, substance, anything that makes me go... 'yeah, wish i done that'.

    But at least it's nice.

    yeah it needs some background - looks very neat but needs xfactor

    That has actually made a massive difference to the overall look.

    Jimlad.

    Well I prefer it. Ties things together more and ads a little depth. Keep going it's improving steadily.

    Ok awesome thanks! Just a quick question first. Do you reckon I should have the header inline with the edge of the box? And should the footer be out of the box, also aligned to the edge of the box?

    Try it, definitely the header.

    Okay guys. Went back and polished the design a bit. Changes:

    I ditched Georgia for a few headings, but will still incorporate it somewhere... I also simplified the filtering 'mechanism' on the portfolio page, the result of which you can see in the third image. Oh and btw, the portfolio box got lighter and obtained a grey stroke on the homepage, which wasn't reflected in the portfolio or sorted pages...here goes:

    Added a subtle grain to the background:
