Didn't mean to be rude, it was with the best intentions.

Good Luck.

The stuffed head with ducky is fun, but it looks off-center to me.

Brrr, tables. You need some keyword metadata in your header for searches. Maybe add some contact info to the html area along with your mission statement.

Your flash is taking forever to load, and a 14 mb PDF file is also a bit large.

From your portfolio it's sometimes unclear what is student/experimental work and what is a real world project. Please indicate. Oh, I see the last pages of the pdf now. Why indicate published status there? I want to know when seeing the project.

The emoticon brand system is fun.

I really like the Lost Cove leafy logo, but when implemented as letterhead etc the record and record player images seem redundant or overpowering. Which is the logo?

Sneaky is a clever idea, but not all the white type is readable over the chosen backgrounds, so this design seems weak.

The phone box is also fun!

You have lots of good ideas!

The content sounds great but I gave up waiting for the flash site to load so can't confirm or deny this.

I would imagine this is what a lot of potential clients would do too.

Slim down your flash content.
This space for Hire! Reasonable rates. Reach an audience of literally dozens!

I like your design, but the navigation is a nightmare.

A possible client doesn't want to look for your work and click a thousand times on your triangle.

He wants to land, see at first sight where the portfolio is, and - one click - access it.

At most one page of overview that can be easily accessed.

It is very daring of you to cut off your head for your website, but it doesn't fit your minimalistic design and gives an immature impression.

In short: you need easy navigation and no distraction from your work.

PS: Site loaded within a few seconds - but I'm on a 10 mbs connection that gets up to 16 or 17 mbs.
