Feedback on a Website Used to Promote Creative Work

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://www.crackedpaintstudios.com

Hi everyone! I just created our first website which is a studio to promote various artist's creative work. I am working to make the banner appear all right on mobile, but I would love any other feedback you may have concerning the overall design & layout. We want it to look polished enough, but also colorful. 

I think the thing giving me the biggest problem is making the fonts stand out without looking too...word-document, if that makes sense. I am a beginner when it comes to CSS, but I've added some here or there to give images borders, etc. 

Thank you!

I think your site hooks the viewer, and a couple of tweaks could make it stand out some more, like image drop shadows and title drop shadow, something to lift them off the page. Paste these two snippets into custom css and see what they do for you. Don't like the result just delete the code. 

.image-block {
  filter: drop-shadow(8px 8px 8px #666666);


h1 {
    text-shadow: 0px 4px 6px rgba(150, 150, 150, 0.8);

Thank you so much! I knew something felt like it was missing, and it was depth!! I appreciate it so much. Completely changed the way the site looks without tweaking much. I really appreciate it.
