    Hello! I've been reading the forum for a little while and just joined.
    I'm a graphic design student and I've just completed my portfolio site.
    Please take a look at it and let me know if you happen to have any suggestions on design or coding. I've checked the site in Firefox and Safari and I've used Adobe's BrowserLab to get an idea of how it looks in IE 7 & 8, however, I've yet to check it in Chrome or Opera. My HTML validates so it should display correctly. *fingers crossed*

    Thanks!

    It looks nice, but not particularly creative (in my opinion). I don't know, it just seems a little bland for a graphic designer.

    i like the design. it's easy to follow, and shows off a good amount of work. only thing i'm unsure about is the font used for the text across the site. i think sans serif might have been better.

    I like it. The only thing I would change is make the rollovers on the navigation more noticeable. Keep on designing! :D

    the site seems to function well and all.......but the text on your home page reminded me of a profile on a social networking site

    I dig it. My only suggestions are

    1) Don't say you've "used photoshop," because it sounds like you opened it and clicked around a little. Say you've mastered it, or you enjoy it, or something.

    2) The photos on the front page (and elsewhere?)– when you mouse over the back one, it jumps through the front one. Make them swap around.
