Please take a look at the link above and just tell me your thoughts on whether there is too much pink/purple used in that design?

Please be aware:

- The links dont work (on the left)
- The image links DO work, I suggest clicking them
- I made the site last night whilst very tired, so it may be sloppy, I know there is a minor discrepency within IE, but you probably wont notice it unless you are looking for it.

Tell me what you think, I appreciate it

Hi,

The first and the only thing that was a bit annoying about this page was the background texture. It's perhaps too much "noticeable". Nice work otherwise

This is my huble opinion and I'm a poor excuse for "graphics designer".

I know everything about nothing, so my knowledge is limitless.

Appreciate the comment, This was the first time I have ever experiemented with Pixel pattern backgrounds, and your point is valid and constructive. I may even look into lowering the opacity with CSS. I think thats possible, or I could be confusing it with Javascript. Meh, im at work, its a Friday.

Thanks

I think the design is very nice.

I don't mind the pink and purple that much at all, but there are a couple things that could be better.

The paragraph you have at the top, I don't think that pink box is necessary at all because you already have a medium/dark background and the light type will be fine on top of that. The other thing that gets me is the links on the left are bright orange, while the rest of the site is pink/purple. I would make those links the same light pink that's in the background and I would take out the fleur de lis, you don't gain anything from them and they just seem out of place.

I know you weren't asking for a big critique, but I figured it's best to get things like this out at the beginning while it's easy to change.

Ok, I sort of wrapped it up and made several of the changes (unfortunatley I havent tried lowering the opacity of the background yet, cause I dont think itts too bad.

But I added a few more images, and I added the other 2 pages, and as far as im aware, everything is functional.

Send me a test message if your feeling a bit naughty !

I like it, but I find the background too noisy, and it distracts from the content.

It's not too girly and I like the colours but I also think the background is a little too busy. If you used just the two colours of the middle part, the graphite and the border, in your background it'd look a little more cohesive.
