I think it’s awesome but agree the scrollbar needs to go! As was mentioned it could easily be replaced with some nice ajax effects.
Woo hoo, 3rd place!
I had exactly the same issue just yesterday. (At least it sounds similar…) For some reason pages using the default page.php file had 20px extra padding at the top of the page, but the code was identical… very weird.
I ended up adding a class to the body tag, and referencing it in the stylesheet to have a margin-top of -20px. Did the trick.
I’m enjoying my first week of adding themes
April looks to be the 3rd consecutive record breaking month in terms of referrals too.
On first glance I would suggest you take a look at your typography, you have many different fonts and, particularly, different font-styles throughout the design which is diluting the content a bit and as the previous poster said – disrupting the flow.
I find it good practice to try and stick to 2 fonts throughout, one for bulk copy and one for headlines. Obviously have enough sizes in your headline font to cover all the headers, but try to stick to two to three sizes only for the body copy. Colour is equally important; for example in your content copy is the same colour as not only the sidebar copy, but the sidebar headers. This again disrupts the flow and makes it a little confusing as to where to look after reading the main headlines.
The drop shadow on the project info section is going to be difficult to replicate when you code the page too.
I could go on for hours about web typography but you’d probably be better off reading this; http://informationarchitects.jp/the-web-is-all-about-typography-period/
The design looks pretty good though! I agree with the previous poster though, you should pay a little more attention to the flow of the page. Sort content into groups and decide which are more important; these need to stand out immediately to the user.
