    Just launched a redesign of my site. Check it out and let me know what you think.

    Thanks for your help.

    I like the header design, and most of the site is nice and crisp looking. My biggest issues would be with the home page.

    The flash behind the "Tell a consistent story." box made it hard for me to focus on reading the paragraph. My eye kept wondering away to try to figure out what was in the photos behind the text.

    As looking at the home page, I was also wondering what the main purpose of the site was. I assume you are trying to sell your design skills. However, I also felt I was suppose to be reading your blog, which necessarily relate to design.

    Bottom line, I like the design skills you are showing, but the main page seems unfocused.

      its nice and clean. I agree with graffiks comments about the photos - haveing the big heavy grey box appear over them blocks them out and makes them pretty much irrelevant if you cant see them.

      also, in your nav: resume only has an accent on the second e. and Im not sure about the 'brace yo'self' bit - for a hip hop site, fine, but theres no real need to ebonicise your page, and only on this little part of it - it comes across as a bit lame to be honest and also unprofessional.

      other than those little things though - good job!

        It feels too gray and doesn't quite have as much contrast as I'd like.
        You've got Design in grey and Latest Work in a lighter, easier to read grey. The description is secondary, right? I'd swap the colors so Design is brighter and "Latest Work" is darker so the user will read that first.

        Something about the columns in your portfolio are unintuitive to me. Maybe it's the vertical rule.

        The left column has the example of your work, the right column has the description. I'm so used to having less relevant info in the right column - e.g. links to areas elsewhere on the site - so I completely ignored that section. Consider uniting the layout there instead of dividing it.

          Yup, I learned the hard way too that when you have a prospective client saying ''I already have a logo design; I just need a professional to make it...professional...''

          This is why I refuse to accept work cleaning up other people's logos.

          But if I was in your position? My response would depend entirely on how much they're paying me. My advice and time are...

          I work on large Catalogs and they get reprinted several times of year and many different designers work on the same files. My company has photo servers that we link to and other common servers for things...
