    Correction: Does the site look too kiddish?

    It looks bad if you got spelling mistakes

    I hope your ironic sarcasm was on purpose....otherwise let's not be too quick to judge.

    Also, it looks nice, originality is key. Who cares if it may look "kiddish," as long as it catches peoples eye. If they are convinced into coming back to your site then you have succeded. My only bone to pick is about your background color choice, the gray just makes things to monotonous I feel. I dunno, maybe if you stretched out your content area a little more and covered up some of the background it would look better. You may still experiment with different color choices though!

    I think it looks pretty good! Cept the colors. I dont really like orange and blue mixed, but thats just my opinion! I agree w/ pardicity3 about the background also. Other than that i think it looks great! Nice font!

    If your going to make the navigation links in italics, you should make them a tad bigger so its a little easier to read.

    I do like it though, cept' perhaps bringing the whole table up more as to rid the scrollbar when its not needed (800X600)

    "Correction: Does the site look too kiddish?" - we all know what he meant... that seemed to be another completely unnessercary post

    back to the subject though: i think it looks great, nice style. as has been said, perhaps make the menu text bigger, and the copyright text smaller... maybe lighten up the gray (sp?!) abit? that'll give it more "space"... should be good i like the rounded edges and things...

    Dark, and deprecated attribs

    I'm afraid you're going to run into problems with such a dark background; in any case, it dictates any content to be light which may be fairly limiting in the long run.
    Also, your code contains a lot of deprecated attributes where really CSS should be applied, at least if you want to come across as a serious, standards-aware web designer...
    I realise this is probably still a design tryout, but why not get it right straight away?

    I actually like the color scheme; it works. And does not look to/too kiddish.

    Although I think you should take advantage of the space and stretch it out horizontally.

    And maybe the 'Home, Services, Portfolio, Contact' font size could be a tad larger (just my opinion)

    Impressive
    Listen! You smell that?

    I like the look, but it looks awfully lonely when viewed at 1280 by 1024.

    Yeah, I think you need some onmouseover effects.

    maybe u should do something about the gray lines. maybe they should be black and thin? and try see how it looks with a white background instead of gray.

    doesn't matter if it's kiddish (i don't really think it is anyway). it's cute i like it. (and i like blue and orange).
