I really wanted a second eye on my website. I've put this up here before, but now it went under a redesign. It's continiuously evolving and I wanted to know if it's evolution is a good or bad thing. I still have lots to do on this site. I am thinking of putting a shopping cart. I am not too sure on it's color scheme.
Any comments would really be appreciated. I don't normally fuss over websites like this, but it's increasingly harder as this is my own site.

I think your website is fine and website should be constantly evolving and getting better, but I have 3 criticisms.
I think the biggest issue is there are no examples of your work on the website. I don't exactly know what I'm buying without them.
Secondly there just some inconsistencies with your imager slider and the image itself on the home page. For example you have text "Web design with character" overlapping the text on the image "Prickly Pear Media". It's a bit clumsy and shows you haven't considered how the text and image interact.
And last of all the loading time is a bit long - I think you should be able to reduce this.
ps. I think your copyright text may be a bit too bold.

I absolutely love it! I love the illustrations and I dig the color contrast you have on your site. It's a huge improvement to the previous versions I've seen.
1) Your "About" page has nothing about you. I don't know who I'm interacting with. I'd really add a few lines about the people involved.
3) The load times are very bad on my end. Perhaps you should go over the code and see if you can trim it. Also, you may find some pointers from this article.
There isn't much else for me to say. I really like your style.

Great.your site looks great particularly your logo and color scheme.I think adding a faq section would also be great

You're site looks good, though I was a bit offput at the images of hte pear and the aliens. Not a bad thing, since I got a chuckle out of it.
Right now on your main content area, it's off to the left. Looks a bit weird with a lot of space on the right.

I am working on it guys, sorry for the delay. I put the site on a CDN for performance but since it uses SSL for the login I had to get rid of it considering I am on the FREE cloud flare service. So give me a moment and I will change things.
PS: everybody get's a chuckle out of Prickly!

It loaded fine for me. The cartoony images might overtake what you are doing.. but it is not too bad. I would be careful not to go overboard.
The issue I would have is, that if I were looking for a corporate design, your site might turn me off. You might want to have samples of different flavors of your designs somewhere that easy to access.

Hey, first problem I had is it took me 6/7 seconds to load up lol never good. the text above the images I dont really like. It looks like poor HTML skills in all honesty. however the banners them self look AWESOME. I give you alot of credit for that!.
sega — 2012-04-08T15:40:36-04:00 — #9
The site is down. I am very sorry for this. It's best to withdraw from reviewing until I get a full restoration. Sorry for this. I assure you I do not have poor HTML skills, but I sincerely understand as it looks pretty damn poor! Sorry.

Well, first of all good job Sega. Website loads up very fast. But, the thing I don't like with your website is font. Also, you have some problems with About Us page. Overall, website looks good. Pay attention to color scheme and all that stuff. And also include BUY image on the front-page. Trust me, you will get more buyers.

The slider is great and the image at the bottom is cute but I think most would have missed it since it's way below, It took a long time for everything to load. The links are broken so i'm not able to view your posts/works.
sega — 2012-04-10T09:34:46-04:00 — #12
The site is broken, but I will fix this today. The links broke down after I used W3TC, for some strange reason. I'd post something up when the site is working again.

Link doesn't load for me.

I tried but I could not access it.
"PricklyPear Media is Down for Maintenance"

It's back online, now, but I am working on it so you guys might see changes.

I like the images. The design is also very appealing. But it gets boring. Most of the pages are filled with blobs of text - no one wants to read that. You're losing reader's attention. Use images, headings, sub-headings.
sega — 2012-04-19T04:39:03-04:00 — #17
@nish123; you're right, This has to change. Thanks for your comments. I have already changed quite a lot of things, but I will keep changing them, not sure when these changes will stop.

Love the overall look of the site. Love the design concept.
The colour scheme works well as the darker background helps showcase your portfolio better for your customers to see. Well done on some great design and strong brand imaging for your business. Love the font.
I would just say if nothing is defined well enough or doesn't currently have a purpose, remove it from the users view. The phrase 'Let's Code It' for example. Don't know what that means.
Secondly, perhaps you could put a link to your pricing information under website design somewhere. You were probably thinking that already.
Good luck with your great website.
sega — 2012-04-24T16:24:31-04:00 — #19
I know, let's code it will be another service. I am on the verge of launching several other services link to this site. It's been a little busy over the weekend getting things ready, but I am eventually going to open up sub-sites alongside it.
I need to put the pricing somewhere. I am hoping to make this eCommerce driven, so people can pay for things online. The pricing is not really a secret, so ye, I want to add some pricing in there too.
Thanks for your comments, soon there is going to be other baby websites to go along with this.
Thanks again for the compliments:)
