Thanks ! I love nevis a lot too !

But don’t you think something is missing ? .. I think the “hire me” button doesnt belong there .. I wanted to use some nice graphic but .. I really suck at making custom graphic so I just did that.

Now that you mentioned it, it does look a little out of place. Maybe you could try it stacked vertically?

like this:

i’m available
HIRE ME

make the ‘i’m available’ blue like the other text to its left and ‘HIRE ME’ in the black-ish color of the top header strip ( the one where you have the ddstudios design studio of…)

or you could still keep the red button, but make it more square and still stack the text vertically.

Looks great, I like the choice of font too.

I think the reason that Hire Me! button doesn’t work is it competes with the 2 other styled buttons near to it. You could try removing it and making your h1 more concise to fit on 1 line. Something like – “I love designing beautiful websites that help you achieve your goals.”

Hmm yeah , not a bad idea. I’ll think about it.

Looks good, the From the blog area has too much all-caps text though. Try making the metadata area and the ‘continue reading’ lowercase.
