I just made a quick look around. I do have a problem with lots of white, and the first screen hurts my eyes, but maybe that is just me. I will go back later and look around some more! BW Blu.

He you

Just browsed through your website. First impression: Clear design and colourful. Good feeling!

I do have a couple of small things:

1. Personally I would like to suggest to use one background colour throughout. The style of the pages are now too different. To make the website a whole, I would use the same or similar fonts, colours etcetera.

2. When someone comes to your website, the first thing they would like to see (in my opinion) is what you DO. Who you are is second. I would therefore move your gallery / shop forward in your navigation bar.

3. When I visit your gallery, I need more clicks to actually find your work. I think I would use a slide show there or already display the thumbnails (that you use in your second page).

Texts and everything else looks clear and to the point as well. A lot of information, but well written.

Those are my thoughts and I hope they are useful to you!

Thanks lots Nicole - exactly what I was after

I was puzzled at first by point 1) until i realised they are the pages that link to external sites.
I've spent much of the day battling with Viviti's supposedly WYSIWYG web building stuff to make a gallery page that's on the site...it's nearly getting the better of me...when it's done I'll tweak the order

Not sure how I'll solve the shop one...zazzle do have instructions for linking to sites but I suspect it'll be beyond my current skill level Will battle with that another day.

Thanks Blu I've altered the theme to tone down the brightness- hope it hurts less?

Hi Sand,
checked out your site and whilst I think your work is fantastic, your site is a bit confusing.

You have so much going on I'm not sure how you'd go about organising it but I'd be tempted to set up gallery pages for each of the things you do, ie one for photography, one for abstract with simple links as to where you can find this work for sale.

Keeping the background theme the same throughout is important, as is matching layout- your viewers will atutomatically look for links etc in the same place as the previous page.

You also have a bio on your home and 'about' page. I agree with Nicole, put maybe a sample image of each collection on the home page with a link to the gallery page.

Most importantly, dont let any of this put you off We've all organised and re-organised our sites and I'm still learning too.

Very brave of you to do this, looking forward to seeing the next version,

Karen and Rich

Thanks for the reply, sorry for the delay in responding, I've been away.
Yep, agree with your advice, just what I was looking for seems like I'm spending lots of time doing online stuff and not much creating. Do people realise how complicated this website malarkey is I wonder?

Again, thanks for taking the time to look and advise
