    I Don't like to be negative about things, and i am no expert in webdesign infact i have to ask pals to look at it for me because i would not know where to start, but the way you have been asked to design that site is not very good to be honest i don't like it if i am really honest and i dont like saying bad things about peoples work as i know alot of time and effort has probably gone into it but it is just not web friendly.

    I think the best part about it at the moment is the gallery plug-in that is a very nice feature!

    Take some advice from the pro's mate and have a chat to your customer see if you can convince her to have a more friendly look

    Look forward to seeing the developments

    James.

    It could win an award for how a website should NOT look

    I realise its not your fault but you should print out the more constructive comments from this thread and hand them to your client

    (With maybe a link to one that looks OK)

    regards

    I did want to say that, but was trying to be polite.

    After-all you are the professional, they should listen to your advice/suggestions and stick to what they are good at - baking cup cakes?
    And that's the way the cookie crumbles !!

    1. Font is hard to read on header graphic

    2. Header graphic and colour of font clash way too much

    3. Black background, pink writing.... just awful and all I can see when I go to another site is image 'burn' on my eyes!

    4. The pink panels need to be aligned in line with the header graphic. They look out of position where they are, as if the browser has rendered them in the wrong place.

    5. I do like the gallery, but even that is only to a point.

    The site needs pastel colours, it needs to be soft and 'fluffy' like.

    Websites of the same genre that I like are (for example) :: Welcome to The Cupcake Factory Website :: and Butter Cupcake Shop.co.uk, Buttercup, Cupcakes, Cupcakes London, Cupcakes Kensington, Cupcakes Chelsea, Fairy cakes London,

    The design you've been told to do is just awful! Sorry...
    Totally agree - maybe you should create a second demo site in a sub directory and show them how you think it should look as apposed to explaining it to them, seeing is believing after all !!

    No offense to your website design and skills but that site is just wrong - felt like I was having motion sickness or something I just felt like throwing up, had to close it down quicker then I opened it !!

    I buy drink and all sorts from other websites and they don't look brilliant but at least the colours are a lot better then that

    Buy the finest biltong on the web! &gt Blue Rock Biltong &gt www.bluerockbiltong.co.uk

    Anglo Australian Trading Home Page for Australia Shop, Canada Shop, New Zealand Shop and South Africa Shop

    Just a couple of sites that I use to give you an idea ref colours ( not design / layout )

    I'll just add that cupcakes are fun, often bright and most of all tasty. IMO the website should really reflect that. As it stands if I was looking for a cupcake maker and came to this site I would be pressing back straightaway.
