Looking for Graphic Design Critisism

anewmanofgod
Hello,

I'm currently looking for somewhere I can get legit graphic design critique. I'm a freelance Web Developer, and I recently had a Staffing Company review my 1 site that I currently have, and they claimed the graphics were poor. I'm trying to find an experienced person who would be as kind as to critique my site and tell me where I could improve. I've looked around online, and unfortunately, my network contacts are all programmers. Any advice?

    You should get better feedback, because who know what "poor" graphics mean to them. And in reality it could have their problem.

    Dealing with creatives you need to make sure they're specific. They may have simply not liked your color scheme or thought the graphics weren't big enough.

    The company I work for once had a client, where we were in a six hour meeting dealing with some final technical and artist aspects of an interactive website we were designing. Four hours of the six were spent trying to decide what color to change the background too. And it wasn't even on the agenda. We sat there while the client argued amongst themselves. The final color was only slightly different from the original. Sadly we had to schedule a second meeting to go over all the stuff we actually needed to discuss.

    So if they give a vague criticism ask them what they mean, and if there's something you can do to correct it.

    And post the link up here (if you can) and I'm sure there's plenty of us willing to give you our professional opinions.
