I got tired of my old design and entire site(using WordPress). To me it just seemed cluttered. I had some time this afternoon so I put this together: http://tjphippen.com/

Still not quite complete. 1 page, so not much to review, but I'll be integrating FreelanceSuite into it when I get a bit more time.

As always, any feedback is appreciated.

Simple and I like it. You seem to be the expert at that.

Clicking on your portfolio - the VPS Guy loads fine, the other two websites don't load at all (one asks for username/password information).

I also don't think that "pointed" line across the screen is needed. The page has no clutter, but the line kind of add it.

I've always wanted to learn how to make that screen-wide color gradient effect and never could.

Yeah, I'm aware of the links and will be updating them shortly. I'd likely agree with you on the "dashed line" if that's what you meant?

I'm also looking for a logo. I've made several, but none that I love.(*hint hint to graphic designers)

The gradient backgrounds are pretty simple. Make the gradient in photoshop, then reference my source if you'd like.

Blew... "Dashed" line is what I meant.

Agreed. Looking forward to your enhanced update.

I've made some minor changes. Still looking for feedback, but for the most part it does what it's supposed to.

I know its not a design comment, but with the previous work images at the bottom, one of them leads to http://www.subhosting.net/, which has restricted access. Maybe just set it so the link brings up a larger version of that image?
Also, the livechat button at the bottom brings up a PHP error.
@the design, I really like it Simple, yet effective, and the shade of blue is really nice
GJ!

Thanks. The subhosting site is to be up with restrictions removed this week(waiting on client). I moved servers last week and forgot to change smarty cache permissions, now fixed. Thanks again.

I think it looks pretty good, you might want to try putting some kind of a header just to make it look a little more inviting. Other than that, I say great job!

Nice and simple integration of WP as a CMS. Simple and elegant. I like the logo much

Thanks, but it's not WP. All custom
