At first glance, I like the graphic elements you used. I'm a big fan of creating sites that look... something like trompe l'oeil, i.e. paper or objects overlaid on a flat surface. The mail center and the portfolio display is especially nice!

It's a very clean look, and certainly seems to match your mission statement about the kinds of sites you build. If this were my site (and here, tastes always differ) I would be concerned with the text-heavy appearance. There's a lot of textual information that isn't clearly broken up by white space or graphics - my eye wasn't sure where to go and I got a bit confused until I spent a few minutes going through it very carefully. I would be concerned that an interested visitor would get bored quickly and leave, especially if they weren't already committed to you as a contractor.

My confusion could be a result of the presentation - if this is a compilation of several pages rather than one single page, I think that takes care of the problem. If this were mine, I would go through the design elements again and decide what was immediately relevant to an interested client, leave those pieces on the front page, and organize the rest in subpages.

You have an admirable eye for detail and a talent for creating crisp, clean spaces. The design is sharp and I really like your logo! Nice work, overall.

Sieht wirklich klasse aus! Bin vor kurzem auch über die Seite von Oliver James Gosling gestolpert und hatte mir überlegt selber was in diese Richtung zu design, nur wäre das nie so gut geworden. :D

Danke dir, ich bin mir nur nach wie vor nicht so sicher obs nicht vielleicht ein wenig zu viel Inspiration war...

Good design but it's like a recipient of ideas picked here and there on other websites and rearanged together with your talent.
In the inspiration link you could have mentionned Ed Nacional's portfolio : [link]

I think with the talent you have, you could easely make design with your own style. This will certainly be very successful because you're a talentuous webdesigner.

I hope my comment won't be to straight, if it's the case I'm sorry for that bro'.

Waiting to see your next one :)
