I am a new designer who specializes in specialty apparel and accessories. I would appreciate any feedback regarding my website and merchandise www.mypunklobster.com

    Are you the same TEC who used to post on Cook's Talk?

    Your bags are wild...good luck with them.

    Hi TEC,

    Your bags are quite eclectic.  You asked for feedback on your site so I thought I'd offer some.  I've done a few website designs and layouts for a few business's and I have found that a sleek/muted layout and color scheme works best for presenting merchandise for sale on a website.  Your site is easy to navigate which is good but your different backgrounds and multiple use of fonts on each page have a dizzying effect that compete with the active and diverse patterns of your bags.  I understand that you're going for a punky/edgy look for your bags and your site but too much "edge" will detract visitors from looking and really seeing and appreciating your merchandise.  You may want to think about keeping that edgy/punky look for your front page and use a format that highlights your merchandise vs your website design techniques for your merchandise pages.

    Just my opinion !  Good luck with your bags !

      I'm no designer but I agree with the previous writer,especially about the different fonts. I love to play with them myself when I'm writing emails, etc, but on a web site they confuse me, especially the 'curly' types you used on the first 2 categories.

      Apart from that, well done. You piqued my interest enough to check out the whole of your site, even though I'm not your target market,just interested in what people are doing. Anyone trying to start their own business in such areas of design/construction have my admiration.

    TEC, your designs are great!  I agree with the previous advice about your website.  Think of your bags as art and your website as the gallery.  You wouldn't want to display art on a busy wall.  I think a simpler website would look more polished and would really make your designs "pop".  You have talent!  Good luck in your new venture!
