    not bad but it seems like there is a big waste of space at the top of the page on the top right.

    Also the colours chosen are very typical nothing really unique about the design!

    Does the font type face change in the different sections.. You should try and keep this consistent

    Thanks

    IMO the layout is nice but some of the basic elements (colour, font) are mis-matched. your font should be consistent throughout the page and should be sans-serif (look it up!). have a look HERE for some colour scheme inspirations... blue and brown??!!
    hope this helps.

    The first one had a really odd color scheme, but the overall designs weren't bad. There was a lot of wasted space at the top as well.

    I have never quite under stood this kind of "framing" on websites. Maybe its cause i work more on apps (where screen real estate tends to be precious) but i think just a little margin will do ya.

    Yeah, the colour scheme just seems... off, for some reason.

    wat?
