I recently decided that I was going to redesign my portfolio and I decided to come up with a new layout. [Here is a sketch of what the layout was too look like and then with the help of the CSS forum, I developed it into html, here[URL="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/270523/help/layout.html"]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/270523/help/layout.html](http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=59272&d=1331139184)
What do you guys think of it? Do you like the colours? What about the layout / design? and the logo?
I was trying to keep it simple, professional, and restrain myself on the images and graphic design because the main content of it, my graphic design, will be enough and the layout itself doesn't need to distract or draw attention from the viewer. Sorry if this part is confusing.
Well, i hope you all like it, and please give me any and all feedback— i sincerely appreciate it
Thanks in Advance & Best Regards,

I like it. It is hard to tell what the site will look like from a sketch, but the design looks good. The layout link you provided looks good. I would put some sort of header at the top for a logo. My eye is drawn to the logo on the bottom right so if that is not the desired result, you may want to put something in the upper left to counter that. Most people will start in the upper left so it may be just right to draw their eyes down and across.
Is the site going to be built using HTML or a framework (like WordPress or Drupal)?
I really like the brushed metal look of the logo on the right. Thanks

thank you. i appreciate it. I was trying to get the eye to go to the bottom right, which is my logo. I put my logo there to brand this page, but also to keep it somewhat hidden so the user can focus on the content
I built it using html and it is going to be on it own.
Thank you again, i'm glad you like the brushed metal. No need to thank me.
Thank you for your review!

The dropbox is returning a 404.
I could critique the sketch if you wish, but it's too simplistic right now to properly judge :).

thank you. well, i took it off because it was too simplistic to judge. I have developed it a lot more and I decided that once I am done, I will put it up and post a new thread for a review.
I'll let you know when I am done. Thank you for the offer

You can (and should) just continue it here. It's only if you wait 30 days, that you should make a new thread :).
