    Please critique my start page

    Hi everyone,


    I noticed that I can learn a lot from here. Many ideas and many opinions combined together can make a huge difference. Would you like to critique my start page. Not completely finished but the basic setup.
    That I know if I'm going the right direction or not. The blue blocks are the hover overs.

    Positive or negative, anything is welcome. Just keep it respectful but honest please.


    Thanks a lot in advance

    Re: Please critique my start page

    Looks amazing right now...

    Colour palette is nice and great choice of fonts. One thing I would say is, the logo header needs some work. Maybe change the colour of the word Moop the same blue colour used on the page, just to make the logo stand out a bit more.

    Other than that, it's tip top.

    Thank you Inkz, means a lot.Besides from that, I'm still doubting the .We are and .Our clients part.Perhaps its better to just keep the 'grid' and the header and trailer on the start page.The .We are falls out of place in my opinion, but I'm not experienced enough to tell.I kan do magic with words, besides from that quite a newbie

    Sorry to pick lol...

    The words "Development.Concepting" may look better just solid colour rather than with a textured overlay.

    And the "Tell them we are coming" text needs to be shifted slightly to the left, just so it's in line with the text above.

    Re: Please critique my start page

    Now just a minute, I didn't say any of that! I never even saw the moop in blue, and in the example I gave you, I had moved the tagline over to the left. Take a look at it. I didn't move it all the way to line up with the w above, beause that made it out of balance but it went over a lot. I am not real happy to be misquoted, but I shall be the big man and forgive you both for your sorry ass comments.

    And you don't have to push your insecurities ovver on someone else just because you followed a suggestion. Incidentally, I really like the overlay. Take your pick, my reaction to it, Inkz's reaction to it, or a third option. And quit doubting your own words. The Great OZ has spoken.

    Re: Please critique my start page

    maybe a subtle grey stroke (30-50% grey) around Development.Concepting? gives it a bit more contrast, as the white in the texture is a little hard on the eye directly against a white background.
    or maybe a drop shadow?
    sorry, I don't mean to nit pick.
