    Portfolio Site (UPDATES!)

    http://rlemon.com/rlemon_2006/

    here is the new design for my portfolio site.

    the site will encompase/highlight my current projects (like l-pic and lyricSearch) 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).

    Edit:

    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

    the intro page is done, working on the main page.

    the msn status, hit counter, and unique visitors are all dynamic and all use flat file db's

    comment please.
