    I like the simplicity of the old one. The new one looks like it has potential. Just a whole lotta blue.

    Who is your target audience? First thing I noticed was the amount of white(in all byt the 2nd link you posted). Too much in my opinion. Everything seems to get "lost" in the white. No definition around the content area.

    I'm liking the 2nd link you posted best so far. With the right layout inside the framework you have I think it could look very cool. :bigthumb:

    Hmm... The thing i dont like about that is text with anything other than white background and black text.

    its just my personal/portfolio website, the target would be possible employeers.

    v3.5 looks better. v3.0 is too dark.

    Make the exteriour bg another colour other than white. Something dark and neutral.

    Thats what i think, and i agree, there needs to be some other color to cut down so much white space. Something purple to match the banner might be a little :greddy::gaysex: tho :hs:

    You can make the white work, if so, I would try blending the bkg in with the header / menus. Maybe try something with half borders instead of the full borders boxing up and closing that area and the bkg.

    I still like the simplicity of the original. You just need more content on it pertaining to your work and yourself. The projects / photography links are there but kind of hard to spot off the main page.

    care to elaborate? how do you think i should do the text text bubbles in layers or something (i hate layers:hs: )? Or just color code the text? Think i should put it in a text box like on my original page?
