    ---- THREAD CLOSED 04/05/2016 ----
    Hey,

    I'm offering free website design critiques via PM. No charge, no catch, no promotions, no donation requests, none of that junk. While I do spend a lot of my time on this site in the Lounge, I do give back without reason, and if you check my post history I regularly offer honest design critiques from the user end (not code tweaks or anything like that). I don't need money from anyone, I already run a successful firm and have a solid career, so there's NO ulterior motive and I'm not going to steal your niche.

    My only requests:

    1) Be open to harsh criticism. That's how I work. I do the same thing for my potential paying clients. I don't bullshit around, and I'm not going to tiptoe around an obvious shit site.
    2) Be patient. I'm doing this for free. Most of my critiques hover between 500 and 1000 words. My life doesn't revolve around BHW (see join date to post count ratio), and I'm not always jumping on my PM's.
    3) If you request or receive a critique, feel free to bump the thread so I'm not having to do so constantly. I also enjoy watching my Thanks count grow.
    4) Don't try to trade iTraders with me. I'm not providing a paid service, and you're not paying for anything. It's shady.
    5) IF YOU HAVE UNDER 15 POSTS ARE YOUR JOIN DATE IS THE CURRENT MONTH, DON'T BOTHER.

    That's it. My angus is peppered.

    -SH

    EDIT: Yes, I'll give light SEO criticism as well.

    TO GET IN TOUCH, PM ME WITH THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:

    ISSUES YOU CURRENTLY FACE
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Can you also give a light SEO criticism aside from web design too? If so, I'll be sending you a PM. :)

    Yes.

    Yes.

    I feel like a whore now.

    No. I'm not reaching out to anyone. I'm responding to PM's I receive with the format in the OP. If your PM is "can you review my site?" with no site, I'm not responding.

    I messaged him a day or two ago for a critique and he delivered a very thoughtful one. He caught a few things that I was aware of and some that I were not. I can't beleive my telephone number has not been click to call this whole time!!!

    Hi, I have sent you a pm for you to critique the design of my site. So glad you are offering this because I really wanted an outside opinion seeing as I don't really have much design experience. Thanks in advance

    Hey there, just came here to write a sort-of-a-review.

    I submitted him my URL and he responded within 1 or 2 days I believe. He pointed out to every possible flaw my site could have like a logo, favicon, post links, social media profiles, content on the web page, etc. And he really offers a harsh critique, if you can handle that sort of criticism (you should), try this guy out, you won't regret it. :)
