here is the new design for my portfolio site.

the site will encompase/highlight my current projects (like l-pic (http://rlemon.com/l-pic/) and lyricSearch (http://lyrics.rlemon.com)) and/or sites i'm working on.
It will also be a place to view / download my free scripts and applications.

I know there is little as far as colours, however i've always been a fan of simplistic sites. i like a very plain, clean layout.

however i realize i'm not the only person looking at this site, hence why i need your opinions.

so please, visit http://rlemon.com/rlemon_2006/ and comment on the design.

(you can look at the code too, however i havn't cleaned it up or attempted to validate it yet, just working on the GUI).



also, if anyone has any suggestions on what to fill the whitespace in the header with? please, give em too me :P - as you can see i put the site search up there to help with it, however it still leaves quite a bit of whitespace.

also, after looking at the site in 800*600 mode i've noticed the pic of me is a little blurry.... solution! use a higher resolution!
*kidding* <- i'll have to look into sharpening that up

for now, i suggest 1024*768, or better yet, 1280*1024

I understand the desire for simplicity, but for a web design portfolio I think this is too simple. It's very neat and useable and all, but it just isn't selling your potential as a designer - it's too easy if you know what I mean.

A major problem for me though is that the actual colour you've chosen is, well.. dubious to say the least. Also on a more detailed note the submit button looks like a text field (or the text field looks like a button, one or the other - they should be differentiated, and the button imo should conform to user expectation and be situated on the right or below of the field), and your strapline is a little over blurry.

yea, i didn't notice the graphics were blurry till i reduced my resolution.

i run 1280*1024 and it looks fine. :S
