    Hey :)

    Could you guys please give me some feedback on my new website? (By the way, I hope I'm in the right forum section.)

    The site name is "wilhelmdesigns" (I can't post links) in case you want to check it out :)

    Thanks.

    I like clean minimalist sites but you are a designer, your site should have more design quality.

    A cutting edge logo for yourself would be a good showcase of your skills and the Icons you have on the bottom for support, pricing etc look like stock paste ins. I would work to make them unique and original.

    1. The logo needs improvement. Maybe a better font. All the letters are in caps and so its hard to read. Maybe make it WilhelmDesigns. Also some graphic would make it look better.

    2. The main site title needs work - the "Do you need a graphic designer" should be in larger text that stands out.

    3. Make individual items stand out - facebook covers, banners, logos, business cards etc.

    Wish you all the best.

    Design? That is a template. Horrible attempt at "advertising" - might want to work on that along with your "designing"

    The only thing i dont like are the 3 graphics. Looks like you just grabbed them from IconFinder or something similar. That cartoony style icon is so played out. So 2009

    Thank you for the tips :) I guess having a nice looking logo for myself is just as important as making good ones for others.

    Thank you for honest feedback, I'm not a website designer, I got the site from a friend of mine, I've just set up a nice "home" page, added some subpages and a nice looking portfolio. But again, thanks for honest feedback :)

    Thanks for the tips, I'll work on the things you mentioned :) I haven't gotten around to make myself a logo yet, so it's basically just text for now. But I guess my own logo is just as important as the ones I make for clients. Thx again :)

    There's no need to sound rude, mate :) Yes, it's a theme called "uDesign" - it's pretty sweet. I was thinking more about the animated slider on the "home" page and how everything is put together.

    Horrible attempt at advertising? This was never advertising, I just wanted some feedback from someone who might be more experienced than me.

    And why are you talking negatively about my "designing"?

    I'm sorry, does it bother you? Because I'm not sure how.

    Here, let me help you. Now you have 1 more message to reply to. So close to that 15th post....

    How are you selling design service when you don't even have a logo yourself?

    So, I will say it again...horrible attempt at trying to get people to your site.

    Man, you need to focus in your design level.
    Well, it's in your need, but it's awful, it's not even designed.

    You sell design services, do a research first, get handy with designing tools.
    Just, don't grab a template and modify the "ipsum lorem" of it.

    Or you can always pay someone to do it.

    Simple and effective, however as others have said, you need to focus more on designs and emphasise that on the main page.
