Check it out at: http://www.neupix.com/ and let me know what you think.
I will also be offering portfolio hosting services to DC.net members (for a VERY small price) in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for details.

It's a nice site, however I (from an outsiders point of view, I know it's not your style) prefer this kind of site for a web design company:
Btw, I personnaly think these guy's are graphical geniuses
I completely agree with you - they do have a great website, and it suits their style and client base perfectly.
Anyways, thanks for the feedback, and as you mentioned my site reflects upon my style. I think that's the most important thing to get across in anything a designer does for themselves.

Anyways, my style of simplicity appeals to older generations who want something clean and airy to look at. I know this, because I just had a request to create something similar to this new website, and have had other requests like this in the past.
It is also fair to point out that I am currently operating as one man, and I only have so many talents and skillsets. I still can't see why something so vibrant can be called dull, but you are entitled to your opinion.

There is no reason to feel bad about posting that link. It is great to compare sites and styles, and to get inspiration from something. Some of my favourite sites include http://www.criticalmass.com - where I got alot of inspiration from.

The side bar will also include some more pictures and images, which might liven things up a bit.

you're on the right track with simplicity definitely...
however, there is such a thing as "too simple" and I think you may have hit that mark. I would suggest livening it up at least a little.
There is never anything that is "too simple" - even a pure white page with only one line of helvetica type can be an extremely well thought out design. You suggest I liven up the site, but give no suggestions as how to do it.
Anyways, I hope I don't sound defensive - I think this is sparking an interesting design debate amongst us that requires further discussion

Just look at sites like http://www.pentagram.com/ (also happens to be one of the largest and most renound Graphic Design firms in the world). Although they are certainly pushing the envelope of simplicity, it definetly showcases what direction our industry is taking.

I think your site is awsome. Its the perfect flavor for simplicity and useability. Now and days, people dont want to fall into a pit hole of flash and fancy graphics. They want information, examples and prices NOW!! I think your site does this very well. Some may say simple is not the way. Well take a look at 37signals.com (A well respected Design Company world wide!, I also have 3 of thier books ) Anyway, thats just my opinion, keep it up, cant waite till shes all finished and tweaked up.
