    Review my main website which was done a year ago. Tell me what do you think. If you have any ideas on how to improve the website, feel free to give your opinion.

    Here is my website - http://www.iknowweb.ca

    Also, I will post the latest designs I've done a little bit later.

    Thanks and cheers! ;)

    They look nice, better than a lot of sites - how do we qualify for a free site?

    The I Know Web website's header is WAYYYYYYYYY too big. Seriously, WAY too huge. I understand the effects of white space when it comes to websites, but holy effin' jesus that header is too big. There is also way too much text on the first page. Make use of some white space (in a good way) and maybe not list every single service you offer there on the front page.

    As for the Rewind website, it's decent. Not too shabby. There's a problem with your menu though.. When you drop one of them down, it goes behind the video, so it's impossible to click those links from the home page. You should also keep the font sizes the same with the buttons on the right. One button has small text, the next has large text, the next has small text. It's too wonky. Make those buttons have equal size texts and it'll help that page out a lot. Not only that, the font family's aren't even close to aesthetic. At the bottom of the site, you've got Times New Roman, and all the other text is either Georgia, Arial or something else. Looking at your CSS file, you've got three different types of font families being used. Cut that down to 1. Nobody needs three different font family's unless it's in a header graphic. The text that actually goes on a page needs to be the same font throughout the entire website.

    Make ALL of those pages have the same header size. But still, that page looks like a cesspool of 50 different fonts used for all of those graphics. Cut down on the number of font families you're using. If you're using the Arial font for actual page text and a different graphic font for the graphics, that's cool. But don't use Arial for the page text and 20 other font families for 20 different graphics. Those are newbie mistakes that anyone can pick out and it makes the layout look abysmal.

    I do like your scrolling images at the bottom though. Those are quite sharp!

    That is just a slick way for people to sign up to your hostgator offer.

    Thank you for a such an expanded review!

    A lot of people called me just because of my main page. You can see what we are doing in seconds, because you don't see anything else except that header ;) That's why i want to collect some opinions and maybe redesign the whole concept of the website.

    About Rewind website.. Yea, it was done in like 7 hours or so. I've choose only one font, right now the seo guy is working on the website, so i'm not sure about fonts etc.

    Its a very thankful review !! Thanks Circus!!

    [h=2]"You are able to receive a FREE website as well!! "[/h]I'm not pushing anyone to sign up for my free website offers. If anyone is interested, you are more than welcome.

    It's more about reviews and redesigning my main website.

    Don't spam the thread with such a posts like yours "THECEO"

    Thanks in advance!

    I think that was his strange way of saying that's a good idea on getting people to sign up for your HostGator affiliate link. At least, that's what I thought of when I saw your concept.

    LOL I see this template on Templatemonster, stop copying and start building your own site....

    If you think I'm wrong then pm me for exact website address of your website design...
    I'm a designer also, do my own design and don't like to copy....

    The site looks great.:yawn: But as mentioned above about the header, it needs a little modification. Other than that everything is cool.

    As I wrote before, this website was built in about 1.5-2 years ago. Back than I didn't know much about web designing, and I choose this template, that's why I created that thread and now I'm thinking of building the new website. P.s. I've changed a this template radically from its original look.
