Fine enough layout, deeeefinately worth changing the font to Verdana or Helvetica pretty snappily though. ;) In my experience your portfolio really needs to show off your talents as a designer so go all out with it. :]

I wasn't trying to insult you; I was merely pointing out a site to reference for layouts. Right now, your current layout is ok but it doesn't jump out as web designer for hire. Sorry if it came across wrong.

It's terrible. Honestly, I'd take Jeter's advice... some of those free designs are a great start, and easily customizable to your needs.

Just use one to "get something up so people can see" your works. ;)

Another thing I would suggest, regarding your contact page:

If you're going to put your screen name or email address, consider creating separate ones for work and play. "LeBron 0wns Y0u" doesn't scream out that you're willing to chat seriously. Just something to consider :)

im well aware of this. i am currently working on a template that is 100% better than the current. my main focus of announcing this was just getting the name out there. for better or for worse. i should have it up and coded within a week or so

i would recomend moving to wordpress or drupal. They are very flexible and make great site design very easy.

i thought about WP at first, but I dont have much experience with coding wordpress templates. so, until i learn that im doing this. And the way I have it set up I can just replace the background color with an image and it doesnt really affect the coding much at all.

i like to keep things neat and organized. it makes for a more professional look and it is much easier to manage when you have a lot of things that you are dealing with.

the new design looks to be up, its really good but here are a few recomendations:

1. make a mouseover on the nav bars

2. change the font to something other than times new roman

3. make the sidebar be links as opposed to just text

4. link to some of the site you've designed as opposed to just images

5. the air and heat integrity design and the design for the fire department are almost identical with just a change in color, it seems a little repetitive to have them both

6. get rid of the alternative blue highlight on the portfolio page

overall it is a huge improvement
