Hi Dave, nice & clean. I've seen some sites that take forever to load.  :idea: One thought though (forgive me I can't remember what it's called) when you click on the different page links on the left, if you have a look where you type in the web page address's, you dont have the corresponding name of page. Instead there are page numbers. I understand that to be important if he/you want it to get picked up by the search engines.

Hope this helps.

Good job.

Steve

Looks good Dave - well done

One small observation - on the 'Close up Magic' page there is a spelling mistake - 'corporate' is mis-spelt

Dave,

Could you get some pictures of Simon working at events (action shots) rather than the his garden & front room?

Looks good to me Dave - the problems I found are spelling related - my favourite topic!

Under Children's Parties section - its says "staring role" instead of "starring role" unless of course the childs role is to stand there ad stare at everyone!

Under close up magic
 It says "performes" instead of "performs"
"resturants" instead of "restaurants"
"corperate" instead of "corporate"

Under the last section an apostrophe has been missed - twice it says "childrens" instead of "children's"

Hope that helps.

I just had a quick look and  agree with everyone else, nice and clean and quick. It would be better to have some 'action' pics.
On the spelling front I didn't find any that haven't already been picked up, I will look again later though, I am like Mark on this it is a big thing in my book that has to be right.
Good job  :D

Hi Dave

Your email is a hotmail account

Why?

To project a professional in image it is far better to have email go something@yourwebsite.

Example: info@simonssimplyamazingmagic.co.uk

Just my thoughts for you to consider.

Hi again

You have got Simonsamazingmagic.co.uk so use that.

Do want to upset you Graham but if you used Info@SimonsAmazingMagic.co.uk note the use capital letters this will help your site stand in your publicity.

mrsite will let me change his email and I want to change it to simon@simonssimplyamazingmagic.co.uk, which I'll sort out when he gets some photos and testimonials as to an abbreviated email you only have to click on the email on his web site to send him a message and he's not good with computers so his email wont be on any cards just phone number and web site.

Hi Dave,

It's a great looking website - clean, colourful, and uncluttered, with lots of white space. Very good. I love the layout, which is very intuitive, except for the point I mentioned in my email about making the links blue and underlined.

I've sent you a detailed critique by email, so I won't repeat it here. If you designed it, it's very good.

So sorry I didn't read the whole thread before replying, though, because I see you are aware of the large pic sizes.  :oops:

Cheers,
Kath  8-)
