I have to agree with BatVfx with regard to the buttons appearing outdated. I think for most part there is a sharp look to the layout and the round buttons stand out in weird way.
Personally I don’t care too much for the white outline on the “ArmyKnife” font.
I like margined and sectioned. I do not care too much for faint gradient because I find the background a bit distracting.
Anyway, thats just what I think. (caveat – I am new to themeforest and not as versed as other authors.)
Tried it in blue to.http://img809.imageshack.us/img809/1426/internetsiteblue.jpg
So I listened to everyone’s advice and I made some adjustments.
1. I made it wider
2. I changed the header and title fonts.
3. Made shadows darker and less blurry
4. Tried to clean it up overall and adjust margins accordingly.
Thanks in advance for everyone’s feedback.
Thank you bfintal, I really appreciate you taking the time to give me some good feedback.
I agree with the page width. I took a break yesterday and went back this morning to look at my design and I agree with you with regard to the width. I will work on that.
With regard to the margins and spacing, should I increase them? In other words, separate my content more from each other? I think this might happen consequently when I increase my design width.
When you say my shadows are not refined, should I decrease the blur I gave them and make them sharper?
Thanks again for your feedback. I am having a lot of fun with this and I appreciate the criticism.
Thank you so much for the feedback Phismatic. I am going to keep going and finish the entire template.
I am brand new to themeforest and I am working on my first template. I would like it to be for the PSD category but I am not sure it will make the cut. I am definitely considering HTML but I don’t know much about coding so I would need to look into that.
Anyway, I would really like some feedback to see if I am headed in the right direction. This is the home page.
Let me know what you guys think. I would really appreciate any feedback.
Thanks in advance,
