Hey guys,

It's been a while in the making (fitting it in between the day job etc) but I have finally gotten my new portfolio site to a launch-able state, what do you think: Christopher Wardle-Cousins | Multimedia Designer

I would resolve the type for your Home, About, etc. It's really pedestrian and boring. Your website is very clean and I like the layout.

Pretty much anything other than Times. Or a San Serif typeface.

I've changed the link font to Geniva but for the page titles it didn't look right so they are still Georgia. I prefer the links in a San Serif though, thanks for the feedback

It's a combination of Photoshop & Illustrator for the content and I built it using Dreamweaver. The roll over effects are all done using javascript, as is the pop-out picture viewer thing which is known as shadowbox.

Great site. I love the minimalist look. The only complaint I have is the font you're using for the links at the top right.


P.S. great photos too
