My New Graphic Design Website

Well, as some of you guys might know I'm a freelance graphic designer. And, I was looking at my old site a few days ago and was thinking to myself, hmmmm kinda boring. So, I worked night and day for 2 days and I got the site looking clean, simple, and has a lot more of my work on it. Let me know what you guys think of it. And, im sure you will like the first logo on the "logos" page.

Heres the link:

and heres a screenshot of the home page:

That looks great! Never saw the old one, but this one looks awesome.

I should also add that I knew you were good, but I didn't realize you made a career of it... And to me that's the coolest part!

Art is great man! My grandfather was a designer in his day, but he used art to design computer chips! I spent the morning with him today (because my car was in service, and we did some art melting crayons! Haha different media but art is art and if you love it, do it

So well done, thank you for making your website a wonderful place! Compared to the crapshoots that people consider a website nowadays.

Graphics of the website are pretty good. Usability of it, not so much.

I'm a web designer, web developer, UX engineer, etc... and am quite picky

sounds fun, we had to work a lot of mediums in art school. always a blast. I remember a project i did with 2 liters of pepsi and a subwoofer.

Looks awesome, you are really putting together something great there, I can't wait to see the portfolio portion of your site. I too am putting a graphic design/photography site, I will let you know when it is ready. I however am building it in Dreamweaver and probably doing it the hard way, lol.
your work inspires me to keep plugging away at it, because one day I too would love to be paid to use Photoshop and Illustrator, but til then there is so much more for me to learn, and besides.....I only have a Digital design diploma in graphic arts, so it will be a long road for me. Fortunately my photography most likely will take off quicker then the graphic design. My site will basically be a mix of both.
Good job brother......from a fellow designer.
