Hey everyone,

I just had a friend of mine help me redesign my website from scratch. Everything is original and I think looks great. I know there isn't a lot of content in it right now, but it is under construction. It should be completely finished within about a week or so.

Let me know if you get any errors or have trouble with graphics, etc and also what ya think! The address is the same: http://www.ewmagic.com

Thanks,

Evan

Everything looks like it works. I didn't get any errors or experience any problems. One thing, though, that you might want to think about: many people find splash pages annoying and would much rather just go straight to the main page of the site than see a page that tells them where they are. If you must do a splash page, a good way to do it is to use cookies so that people only see it the first time they visit.

Another good use of a splash page is to offer a choice on it. Perhaps you have two versions of your site: with frames and without frames. You can offer visitors that choice on the splash page. Or maybe you have a "for magicians" section and a "for clients" section. You can offer that choice there, too. In other words, find a way to make the splash page useful.

All that said, I think it looks nice and professional. Only one niggling thing; the name "EWMagic" ... "ew" is an expression of disgust. I know it's your initials, but it's a bit unfortunate that it could be read, "Ewww, magic." Smile

Thanks for the feedback. I will take into consideration your thoughts concerning splash pages.

Ah, you're not the first to comment on the sound of my initials Smile . Though it is not something controllable which would make this a heck of a lot easier Smile , I have been thinking that eventually I will be changing it to evan-williams.com (since evanwilliams.com is a site for Evan Williams brand whiskey...).

Anyway, thank you very much for your feedback.

Evan
