  • DesignWild Website Critique

    Here's a personal project for my portfolio. I started with the site name built a theme around it; in this case, I was going for a jungle explorer feel.

    None of the links work, though some have hover effects. IE7 decided that the padding on the navigation and the text in the footer were luxuries I didn't require, and the two of us will no doubt have a long discussion about this in the morning. Other browsers seem to display fine.

    Any comments/crits greatly appreciated. Also, out of curiosity, is it customary to do design a subpage as well for sites that are going into your portfolio? I've seen it done both ways, and I've always wondered.

    I like that it's colorful and it fits in my 1024x768 viewport. It's kind of tall though. I'd try to pare it down vertically and cut to the chase. I feel like there's a lot of space wasted on the top right, you could shove a slogan or a phone number. The line-height on your body text is just a -little- too tall. Good for book reading, not great for web reading.

    Your IE problem is probably because you're using the default margin/padding for that <ul> tag. You don't need to float the <ul> left. You should set a width on it and set overflow: hidden, reset the margin to 0 and set the left padding to whatever you're using on the main content div (you called it "#left"). Set #navigation ul li a to display: block if you want those links to be square.

      Thank you, all very good points. Yes, my personality type is fairly laid back and even implementing things such as contracts and deposits has been out of character. To take the lead is very unnatural...

      That load issue is more important than any color issues you may have.

      If you have black shapes with white outlines, that could be a problem if not dealt with properly. If you expand a black shape with a white outline, the black fill shape will be half under the white line....

      Is the form a PDF? If so Acrobat works.
      As long as your name is in there in some fashion, typing above a line isn't necessary - as long as the space isn't asking for a signature. A typed signature...
