Default Website Critique Needed

Please look over my website and tell me what you think. I have made quite a few changes since the last time I posted this request..

Hey Brandon,

The facebook link on your homepage links back to your homepage.

The images on your services pages are ok but they look disjointed ... if you get what I mean :s I'm a big fan of images being symmetrical and making use of white space. Your service page, as it is, looks really scruffy.

This same scruffy look applies to the index page too. It's nice that you're telling people that you work late but that image looks pretty crap (without trying to sound too harsh)

Also, not a criticism on your site, but that logo you have is really ugly. It looks like a logo design straight from a 90s magazine. I think plain black text in Arial would look better than that.

Hope I haven't criticized too much,
Good luck,
Sam

Brandon,

What's wrong with the logo you are using for your avatar? It looks better than the one you are currently using.

Regards,
Sam

EDIT: That index page looks better already with that image gone. The image wasn't a bad idea ... it just didn't look good where it was in the footer. The logo/title looks better in plain black but (on a personal level) I don't like the font. I don't think it looks very professional ... almost kindergarten

Ahhh I see.

It looks like a much nicer design though ... could you achieve a similar design for your current site.


EDIT: Scrap that previous comment ... looks much better already. However, the same applies to the font underneath.

Yeah, I still don't think it fits to well but, if you like it ... stick with it.

Anyway, a few more points:
Where you have the facebook image, I don't think you need the "Facebook:" text that's above it.
I don't like that visit counter at the bottom of the page. Is that for your benefit or the clients?

Cheers,
Sam
