It seems traditional for people to announce their websites here, so who am I to be any different!

This is my first 'personal' site for almost 8 years & I'd be grateful if anyone can have a look & see if I've left in any glaring errors e.g. spelling mistakes etc. that makes me look more of a moron than normal.

The address is

Thank you!

Really impressive. Like the artwork, clean and clear but with personality. The only navigation niggle I had was the back to menu navigation at bottom of the galleries. Always said back to menu no matter if you where going back to home page or gallery sub menu. Very very minor niggle but had to say something!

Thanks David, very kind of you to say so Smile

I did think about making the buttons back to the gallery different - but I was feeling lazy at the time & just reused the same button, will add it to my list of things to do though.

Thanks for looking.

Very cute and original, and simple. I like it.

I'm not a fan of sites where the images take ages to fade in, I prefer the selected image to pop straight onto the screen.

Thanks for taking the time to look steve, I've got to say that I like it when images fade in, rather than just appear - so I guess it's just a personal preference. Thanks for you comments though - very kind Smile

I'm sorry - but that has to be the best designed site of that type I've seen in....ever. Works like a treat and looks fantastic.

Whoohoo! Thanks Keith - that has to be the best comment on any of my work... ever! I just hope it's good enough to get me a job, fingers crossed anyway.

Wow - wonderful site, love the animation/layout etc. Simple black and white works really well. If I had to find anything to suggest it would be that on the 'about' page the white text in the black boxes could be a little easier to read - perhaps in slightly bigger or bold text? Great site, well done.

Damn I can't view it at work - I get:

sites of type Nudity are restricted.

It is a clean, well laid out well executed flash site and you are to be congratulated on it.

However (and I don't really wish to delve back into the 'to flash or not to flash' debate as it became quite messy) personally I think the total reliance on flash for the operation of this site will reduce your visitor traffic, both potential and actual.

If you can live with that then it is not a problem. If you really want maximum exposure, you should switch to a CSS/HTML based site with flash elements for enhancment rather than functionality.

Thanks Sarah & Lynn for your comments, much appreciated. I did wonder about the text on the about section, but was more concerned at the time with sorting out the galleries - will have another look at it, although the information is in my CV as well.

Chris - that's a worrying message to get, especially as there's no nudity on there at all :-(

Neil - although I'd agree with you at almost every other time, for this site I think I can get away with it. After all, a designers personal portfolio site is usually their only chance to play Wink I'm aware it'll suffer exposure-wise but that's not really an issue.

Thanks everyone for looking.

Fair enough Ben, you know the issues and have made an informed decision and I cannot knock that or the quality of what you have produced. It really is a good looking site.
