    Looks decent. Doesn't have that WOW factor, but it is your first time.

    You have done excellent, keep it up.

    You seem to have an eye for margins and paddings, which is extremely important in design.

    Good work for your first design.

    Not bad for your first time,
    you can improve the navigation bar, and maybe make it smaller,
    and make it more organized, especially the content,
    depend on the themes, you can pick a better fonttype

    Sorry, I will write my honest review:

    I am a professional designer and this is horrible. Frankly this is like what we had in early 2000s type of design. First attempt or second or 100th. As a user I would not like to spend more than 10sec on this type of website.

    Here is what you need to do:
    In web design, there are predefined rules. Well not universal rules or anything like that, but usually things look good if they are made with keeping those in mind (You can break those rules if you are going for a awards masterpiece website) Something you should start with:

    1. Copy websites first. Before jumping directly into designing your own unique design. Copy 5 - 6 website from head to toe, every pixel of it exactly where it is on the original website. This is to get you more into current web design state of mind.

    2. Follow "960 Grids" while making the website. Google it, read about it. Take snapshots of big company website on internet and trace the 960 grid on them. You will learn a lot.

    3. Don't use more than 2 type of fonts on one website. Maybe 3 if you are really professional and you know what you are doing. You have used many different type of fonts on current page.

    4. Make designs colourful. Your current design looks really dark, use some colors, try finding a god color pallet and stick to it. I use colorlovers and adobe kuler to find good colours.

    Hmm, its okay. I like the "Projects" section, and the seperator you used underneath it.

    I would change a few things though:

    • The menu items need to be more padded out. I'd change the colour and lose the rounded corners too.

    • The arrows and navigation dots on the slider are both too big. I'd make them thinner, semi transparent, and move the dots to the bottom, center.

    • You should make the sidebar an equal width throughout. I'd start by aligning the "About Us" block properly, making it wider, and then basing the upper sidebar upon that width.

    It's a lot better than the first website I ever did, but I think it could use a bit of work dude. Points for taking criticism constructively.

    I like it,
    However, I think you should change the buttons from rounded to more square - It looks more professional.

    It is very, did you design and code it by yourself ?

    I would go for radius from 3 to 5px, on the menu items.

    Good job

    Its good man, I like how its laid out. Finding professionally done websites and copying those is probably the best way to learn, try to change up those websites with your own creative twist and you'll soon develop your own style.

    The Updated Version looks pretty clean for your first work.

    I can advice you to just take 2-3 websites you like and reproduce them 1:1 in photoshop, then you will get a feeling for the sizes / colors and placement of the different website parts.

    The design is quite clean and tiny. But I'm not into the featured images (maybe the resolution is quite low, it's the reason) and the designing idea is too simple I think. Testimonial should be arranged vertically (the final section), that will be better.
