  • Review my website

    For almost 5years of being a freelancer I notice most of my clients don't want to use the exactly looks of the theme or templates available in the market, so I end up editting the themes to meet the client desire.

    Most themes/template I can see now is looks almost the same like flat design, row by row background etc. That is why I launched my own site where I showcase themes with the old fashion design but still responsive or compatible with all gadgets.

    What do you think about my idea?

    Any critique and suggestions will be appreciated.

    Hello. I just saw your website. Well it's quite interesting but I found green color(in header portion) to be somewhat striking to the eyes of viewer. I would suggest to change that as user first checks if he/she is comfortable with the user interface or not and then only they move further. Except that, everything seems to be good. Good luck!

    Thanks,
    Kinjal Kaushik

        Hey,
        • as kinjal already pointed out the bright green image really draws attention. I'm not sure if that is a good or a bad thing .
        • In the recent themes section, it feels like the 'read-more' buttons don't belong to the corresponding image.
        • It would be great if the .menu-toggle button has 100% width on mobile.
        • The yellow of the register / Log in buttons feel a bit out of place (since it's the only element in that color)
        PS: If you have some time, I would appreciate some feedback on my site as well, since I never got any yet: http://www.graphicdesignforum.com/fo...verall-website

          I have a few recommendations for you:

          1. Logo is not trendy. Look for some articles about modern logo designs and maybe find some inspiration.
          2. In my opinion, title (Logo) is too big in comparison to other content.
          3. Fonts are very small (e.g. register and login words are super small)
          4. Line height does not meet the standards. For instance, you have the subtitle Fully Responsive and the line height between this subtitle is too small in comparison to the line height between the very content of this block. It should be vice versa in this case - bigger line height between subtitle and the first line and smaller line height between sentences in the very block.
          5. Your contacts (skype and email) are not visible, they are too small + I'd consider adding the word 'Contact me" in there.

          Hope this helps

            Logos should never be ''trendy.''
            They should apply to the target demographic and market, not current trends.
            Logos should be relatively timeless.
            Trends End.

            The typos, grammatical errors, and punctuation mistakes in your writing undercut the credibility of what you're offering. If the writing on your site is the best you can do, you really need to hire a copyeditor to clean it up for you.

              I agree that the logo could be improved, but its lack of trendiness is not the problem. Trends come and go, but most business logos need to stand the test of time and not look outdated once the trend has run its course.

                      If you want crit on your site, it would be better to start your own thread. And include a link to the site.

                    Not bad because is simple and clear, but the green color is too shiny maybe... I would insert an slide also. About the templates, Restocate is the one I like the most.

                        I'm guessing that renting a party girl means exactly what one might suspect.

                        As for the logo, it looks like a peel-off sticker of some kind. The type is mathematically centered, but visually...

                        We'll see what happens I guess.

                        What do you mean by ''gig design''?

                        As for the thing itself, I might put Perth on its own line under Party Girls. The whole thing kind of gives a mixed message. Is it a modeling agency? Is...

                        Is this forum migrating to the new or going away and starting over?
