    I think he's there to color perceptions. With him in the mix, the more "credible" extreme-right candidates might look centrist to voters who are relatively liberal, but have tired of the Democratic...

    In addition to what the others have said, I would suggest making some adjustments to the background. The sky almost looks to be a dingy gray. I would also work on your perspective. Making sure that you...

    Reply to Hi GDF! I'm new here and looking for an idea for my (maybe my brothers) YouTube logo.
    But that's what designers get paid for, ideas. Your best bet is coming up with something you like and asking for opinions. No one will do your work for you. Or you can post in the classified section and...

    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.
