Hi, I am working on my first web site. I have set out most of the graphics and links, need to do text.

Would welcome some feedback on what I have got so far!

Nice and simple.

Which is exactly the sort of website I think work best.

All this colour and design simply annoys me.

I would like to add a banner to the bottom where the company line goes across. I know you can do this on serif webplus but don't know if I can copy on to this.

Also having problems with layering. Want to put pics behind text but cannot work it out on frontpage any help would be great.

I have had only a few moments to look at it, but I cannot help but notice the poor quality banner graphic, with its very aliased text, high jpeg compression and the weid ability to change in size and move around between pages.

I will study it in more depth later tonight.

The header i got from and on the example it spreads right across top of screen, so don't know why it looks poor quality on mine.

Thanks for feedback, is there any way i can improve the quality or other websites i can get graphics for free.

It changes size because of the different image dims set.

Index page: images/Chelmer_PC2.jpg" width="477" height="122

Other pages: images/Chelmer_PC2.jpg" width="520" height="130"

You should progress to making your own graphics, particularly if your site advertises Web Design.

I would remove the 'under construction' text and graphic as sites are constantly under construction anyway and the graphic is cheap.

Also, I would suggest some META tags for the search engines.

Even though you've only just started your site, you've published it now and you never know who's looking i.e. potential customers!

And centre your links at the bottom.

One more thing, then I'll stop harassing your thread with a jumble of posts instead of just one!

The main banner is awful (in my opinion) and wouldn't make me choose you for your web design service, but I'm sure you'll eventually change this as your graphic design skills improve, we all start somewhere!
