New site, looks good. However there is 2 validation errors.

LJackson,

Well, everything is valid as far as code, pages are working and have content. But as far as the design goes, I think it could use a little touching up. Mostly in the graphics and color scheme. Standardize the text and hyper link fonts/colors to match the brown layout. Also try to introduce a little more color, its difficult when you're only using one color. And finally, I personally don't like I-frames, so my suggestion would be to throw those out too ;p

Hi Clark05,

thanks for your comments, yeah i need to standardize the text, its not something that i have really thought of before now but i think it will be a good idea, likewise the colour scheme needs tweeking slightly.

when you say throw out the I Frames what are you referring to as i dont have any i-frames? do you mean the red borders on the top items?

cheers mate
appreciate the feedback
Luke

Well, I think your page could use a little more depth with the colors and your images need to be less fuzzy.

I took a screen shot and added a gradient to your blue header background.
I would think about adding something like this to the site so it looks a little more modern.

But I know how hard it is to to keep it simple and get it done too. It seems like you can never NOT find something to improve. LOL

Luke, I made that gradient in paint.net, but you can use canvas tag in firefox browser to make gradients and save the output as a png file. The best thing to do would be to save a vertical sliver of the gadient the height of the header and 1 px wide. Have it repeat as the background of the header element.

Do you have a photshop program?
paint.net is free and it's awesome.
