    Hello,

    I am new to web design so bear with me. I have finished a website using
    dreamweaver for a
    friends, parents building business. However it looks OK and they seem
    pleased with it. (which is good) considering it's my first website I am


    quite pleased with my efforts. However I would like people to take a
    look and tell me what is nice about it but also bad as well. The more i


    look at it the more I am critical of it.


    www.hillstreetbuilders.co.uk


    Also, I woudl like to know how much people woudl charge for a site like


    this. No database, just some simple HTML pages.


    Look forward to your feedback

    It seems fine but you just got to make a margin on your table...

    Your site is nice. Just add some padding to the tables. :)

    I would try and make the Hillstop Builders logo area at the top more streamlined.

    Make the Gradient go vertical 90 degrees UP, it will look better.

    I can design a way better template for you free if you let me put my copyright on it; but I have never been able to do the navigation bars like that? How'd you do that?

    The customer is pleased with the way it has turned out but I am interested in your templates. I will not use them for this website but maybe for future ones as I hate coming up with ideas for templates. It's frustrating trying to make it look good.

    Could you send me some examples?

    Seems a nice site for the intended audience.

    Maybe add some written testimonials to the gallary section (people always like to read them especially where builders are concerned).

    In terms of design, for me the header section is just a bit too big, how about reduce the space around the Hillstreetbuilders logo? Or align the logo to the left and put the picture next to it (obviously reduced size)?

    Good work though.

    Really like it. Like others I think your content is too close to the edge. Border or margins are good idea. Less is more. There should be 50% less information on a webpage than there is on normal printed material. I am also new to web design but I am really impressed with your work. Keep up the good work.

    Not bad, definitely better than my first :) first thing I think i would change is in the menu, I think it would be best to have a rolloff function instead of just leaving the rollover activated, also some links have clicks some do not I didnt notice a reason for segregating the different links so they should all be consistent, Next would be the color scheme, the use of the solid primary colors (red/blue) dont feel like they mesh well with the colors of the menu, my last suggestion would be to flip flop the FMB image to the right and the image of the people to the left and continue the rest of the way down, the red dot just keeps drawing my eye back to that spot each time i come back to the beginning of a line.
