[WSG] new site review

2009-09-29 Thread Raul Ferrer

Hi guys!

It's been quite a long time since I last contributed to this list but I've
been busy making my own website.
It's built on Expression Engine (my first one with this CMS) and I'd really
would like to know what you guys think.

http://www.raulferrer.com

Things to keep in mind: the portfolio and services are there but they're not
completely finished, 'cause I want to develop each service and each client
more deeply.

Other than that is more or less done. I'm working on the multiple languages
(it's going to be in 5 languages), so it's still needs some work to do.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers

Raul


PD: I've tested it with FF2  FF3, IE6, 7  8, Opera 9, Safari 4 and Chrome
3.

Looks good, Raul!

I'm able to read the text without problem, on both analog and digital
monitors.

Don't make the text contrast any less, however, especially in the menu, as
those
with lesser quality monitors and poorer eyesight might have difficulty
reading it.

Would recommend a Home menu item, just because it's so common.  I knew to
click
on the logo, but others may not think of that so readily.

I like the contrasting blue...nice menu rollover image...readily available
contact info...
call to action...good...informative overview of your process...attractive
graphics...
good consistent layout...like the quotes and photos under the header on each
page...

Good job!  I can tell you put a lot of thought into the styling of your site
and
it has paid off!

Rick

Hi Raul,
On the contact page is it supposed to say ...and bring your project to
live or  ...and bring your project to life ?

Just an observation.

A good validator for color contrast is the Contrast Analyser at
http://www.paciellogroup.com/resources/contrast-analyser.html - which
validates against the luminosity standards set out in Guidelines 1.4.3
and 1.4.6 of the W3C's WCAG 2.0 standard.

Nice site Raul,

I share the comments from Chris on problems with readability. Other than
that, really like what you've done.

Also, I am part of ExpressionEngine Pro Network, you should post this on
their forums http://expressionengine.com/forums/viewforum/3/ as well.

Re: [WSG] new site review

2009-09-29 Thread Roberto Gorj√£o

Hi, Raul:

Nice looking website. Top grey text could in fact use more contrast. I 
also think that it is a shame that the text in the menu was converted 
for such small images. There was no need for it as the font used is 
pretty common and you lost there a lot of usability and accessibility, 
as users are not able to resize it.


Cheers,

Roberto
