Still working on the site

My name is Elvis and I self taught how to create Web Sites. I learned how to programmate in HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, MYSQL, and it’s not so hard as it sound. I created ECODEWS- Elvis Code Web Sites to share with you my knowledge in web design and development. In my blog you can find a lot of useful information, tutorials, inspiration and news.

Why all the pointless animation on the homepage?

 

Why no contact details on the homepage?

 

Why no examples of your work on the homepage?

 

Why the pointless certificates?

 

Congratulations on learning how to code but I really can't see the point of the site other than as a platform to practice your skills.

I liked the animation - it helps the site look a bit different to every other designer's site - but is only valuable if your prospective customers might want something similar. Animation is useful for music, arts or entertainment sites where style and originality is important so perhaps consider this area as an initial specialisation.

 

Examples would be useful but I guess you're just starting so don't have any.

 

Definitely lose the certificates - Udemy courses may be helpful to you but they don't carry any weight with customers IMO. It's a bit like saying - I've read some books so I know what I'm doing. Certificates are only valuable if you've been tested and passed. Even those who have computer degrees rarely advertise the fact because customers are really only impressed by results - hence the need for examples ASAP.

Find a native speaker to proofread your site :) "programmate". I also have no idea what your name "ecodews" means or how to pronounce it.

Although way over-designed I like it.

 

I do not like the animation, but love the menu icons and overall boldness of the design, but it is a bit much and you should try to minimize the concept and think google UI.

 

But not bad though, now need to calm my eyes after the visual assault of your video...lol

You should change "about the author" to something like "About our developers"

 

I would remove the facebook element or place it in your footer.

 

For the rest looking pretty cool

Don't animate anything on the homepage. The homepage should tell me what you do within seconds and without having to way for anytihng to happen.

 

Decide what you want the site to achieve and make that the focus of the homepage.

 

ecodews isn't important. Nobody cares about you. All there care about is getting the answers to their query. So if the site is the blog then put this on the homepage. If the site is promoting your services, put this on the homepage. If you just want to show off your skills at doing animation leave the site alone.

I just checked your website!

 

First I want to ask once thing that are you from web design and development industry? If YES than you need to do a lot of work on your websites.

 

Just think, whatever you are showing your own work your website and someone ask you to show your portfolio and you will send this website link.

 

Client reaction... AAhhh!! No way :mellow:

 

First of all your own work or website should be amazing after that you will be able to get more web design and development projects.

 

 

Cheers,

Jayden

      I have been using the W3C CSS Validator to highlight any problems with the code. What I am getting is ‘Congratulations! No Error Found’ for CSS Level 3, but there are warnings for code like the following:
      -webkit-linear-gradient(top,#1e5087,#1a4677) -moz-linear-gradient(top,#1e5087,#1a4677) -ms-linear-gradient(top,#1e5087,#1a4677) -o-linear-gradient(top,#1e5087,#1a4677) Do W3C not recognise the above has good practice?

      Hi,
      Calling for some advice/support to put forward a few ideas as to how to best achieve a design I'm working on.
      I have attached an image outlining a section in a design that has a (not skewed, but similar)  wavy curved shape on the top and bottom. The site will have a fixed container grid of 1200px but the height of the content will be variable depending on the viewport width. To make things a little more tricky too, I would like to do this with a gradient. This would cause issues with doing a static image top and bottom and a gradient background for the main content.
      Could anyone post a few quick codepen ideas to point me in the right direction? Or link me some jQuery/JS-based plugins that would be able to create something close to what I want to achieve. Alternatively, if you have any other suggestions i'm all ears (the gradient could go for example)
      Thanks
