Hey everyone,

Recently I decided to simplify my website. Cut back on things such as free graphics, my forums, etc. I wanted to make penguinpedia.com just my design website and portfolio, nothing else.

So, over the past couple days I have been working on this:
http://penguinpedia.com/
edit: site is launched! Check it out :)

It is my "new" layout that I would like to launch, but first I wanted to get some thoughts.

As I said above, I wanted it to be simple. I chose a simple white rectangle, two colours and I went with it. I am at a point where I want to attract clients, so while I wanted it to be simple, I still wanted it to look nice.

Anyways, to get to the point, what does everyone think? Anything I can change? Anything I can add? Or should I start over?

Like usual you pull off a good site, its simple and not to distracting as in as soon as the user opens up the site they know what to do and what you do.
Very clear and crisp

Hi Penguin, I like it :) it´s very simple and userfriendly. I was going to send you the script for the popups but it looks like you already took it from the DC gallery :D . Sorry I didn´t send it before, I´ve been so bussy and tired lately that I decided to take the weekend off and stay away from the PC! but Im back now.
Oh!, I forgot... im sure you will find this new layout very easy to update!

Take care

thanks everyone - trying hard to decipher the sucking up from real comments LOL :p

Anyways, I have gone ahead and launched the new site. Hopefully it will attract more clients towards me. :)

What do you think of the various two-tone images I have posted around? The penguin, phone, etc.

You mean you have people around here like that?? :p

About the two-tone images: I don't like them. The thing that makes your portfolio page so great looking is all the color from the different samples of your work. Colored images would work better there, imo.

Hi Penguin, im not crazy about them but I don´t hate them... maybe if you use a color like the green from design but lighter? to make it blend a little with the rest?

Ok thanks :)

I will look into making them 2 or 3 different colours. I like the style of them though, they help me fill some dead space and still look professional. Currently I am using a threshold layer in photoshop to make them look that way, so I will have to find another method.

Cool stuff, penguin. I like the simplicity of the whole thing. Understated = good in my book.

After looking at your portfolio, I have one thing to say:
Badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger MUSHROOM MUSHROOM!

LOL I love Badger Badger Badger - I sat there and watched it (and sang it) for about an hour the first time I found it.
:rolleyes:

And.. Twitchy will be back! (Kind of like the Terminator, but a little different ;))

like the uncluttered feel to it,
although felt it needed just a splash of more colour
