Hi Mylotters! I was wondering if people would mind giving me their opinion on the colour and designs of my website? A couple of days ago I received an email from someone who I didn't know saying that they found my website off putting and distracting and they suggested that I changed all the colours and the layout. Now I was pretty upset and peeved off. I've only recently updated my website and it's taken me many many hours. I've not had negative feedback before and the site does ok for hits. This has however knocked my confidence so I was wondering if anyone would mind letting me know what they think? I aimed the colours and design around students/teens as they seem to be my main audience. Thanks! here's the site: http://www.overdramaticdesigns.co.uk

maybe u can get a free template from the internet. just search for free blogger template. then find for template that best suit you and apply it. this will save your time significantly.

I think the content is good and pretty clear on what to expect from the website. But, the color and stars around is very much distracting. But, I think the color and the design might be good for teens and children. whats the reason for the first page to have link "Enter Site". Any plans of having a flash page in future ?

I just want to say we have the same first name if your real name is Beki, or how ever you wish to spell it. About you web page my opinion is yes it is bright I'm assuming you are trying to get peoples attention and you got mine. I was interested to go on and continue to look around.I think the way someone designs something tells a lot about a person.and I'm 24 year old mommy of 2 so there you go you are attracted more than the what you expected,and the site is not even up yet . what do you think of you site is what matters.I don't know a lot about web design and stuff like that but couldn't you go back in and change it if it wasn't help your sales or you were getting complaints.I hope i was helpful have a nice day beki710(521)

I myself am an artist and an aspiring web designer. I think that your website flow together very nicely with the picture. It brings all of it together, it's really nice. But honestly it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. It's only you. Artists and people alike each have their own view point and not everyone is going to like what you do. Don't let that get you down, just have confidence in yourself and in your art. Best of luck

i am a web designer by profession and i always feel that a website should be designed more with the thought that is should be very clear to the user how to get the required information very quickly. i mean a visitor must be looking at so many websites when he is looking for a piece of information and so he must be looking at a lot of different websites which are all made in a very different design and so he may be very confused when he comes to your website and so i think it is always very good to have a good looking design but very simple and elligant so that the user will know where to go and how to go. this way you can get more response from your website
