Re: New Website Designer Site (wishingwebs.co.uk)
'T'ain't bad at all. I was sure for a moment that you'd used images for the headings; the Montez font is loading much faster than most fonts do under an @font-face rule. Limited character set, I suppose?
It looks nice with the pagination you have now. I just wonder how the design will hold out with real content—I can imagine it working well with, let's call it "curated content", but a little less well with more random article lengths. I guess that translates as "good magazine/bad blog" in the common tongue. I'm guessing that you're testing several different page types there on one HTML page, and that the breaks in the background panels indicate the separation of the various page types. Just a little question: do you anticipate maintaining the "print page" layouts for longer articles to make multicolumn work? Again, that makes content curation more important, so the site would be a lot more "hands on" than most designs. (At least until the new CSS methods get wider acceptance and implementation).
The only real qualm I have is with the depth of the header. I haven't gone through looking for @media rules, though, and I'm using a rather large screen, so it may be just fine as it is. If it looks like more than a splash page on netbooks and mobile devices, you're golden.
