    The blue doesn't really fit for the box headers and borders. The content needs padding too. Besides that not bad.

    I don't think the square boxes fit in very well with the overall theme. It's also not a very compelling or original design in my opinion... it just screams iWeb template.

    Hmm I kind of like it, it's nice and clean looking. However I would probably do about with the navigation in the footer or make them a lot smaller.

    Agree with what others have said. Also, be sure to spell check all of your text before you turn it in. I'll leave it to you to find the word misspelled...

    If the site weren't about Tampa I would tell you it's likely a location based spelling difference.


    Anyway, I love the site. I think the boxes should be rounded to better match the rest of the site. Make sure that the boxes line up perfectly, it looks very odd when they are just a pixel or two off.

    In addition to rounding the boxes and adding some padding, I'd suggest switching the text to white (or rather, maybe the color of the background) and changing the blue to the same dark color as the background of the "share your voice" button (don't think that's black, looks like a really dark green). Seems like it might fit better and stand out without drawing all the attention.

    Love the overall look though, very nicely done.

    I respectfully disagree with this advice. After rounding the boxes and making the header color match the button, there would be zero difference between a button and a box header. Bad affordance!

    That's alright, different styles. If I actually rendered it, I might decide the same as you, it just struck me as probably a good look.

    It's not a bad start. I like the clean look and white background. I think the only part I have a problem with is the logo, try working on it some more. I can give you some pointers on the logo if you want.

    ok

    the theme looks really good, but I'm just wondering why some of it is in English and another in a different language?

    Ah, good 'ole lorem ipsom. :)

    The "different language" is known as Greeking. It is simply placeholder text and has been used in layouts for ages. It is there to show layout and is not intended to be read. One of the issues in design is that people will fixate on the words and not look at the design. With Greeking you remove that distraction.
