  1. Hey, looks pretty sweet! One pointer tho… the font/text in the main part at the bottom and under news feed bit (yada yada, etc) is a little hard to read… mite be because its bold… other than that, looks pretty good!

  2. Well, this is a critque so I am going to be ultra constructive coz I like ya and wanna help out.

    I think the type setting spoils it. The image of the toaster is too big. There isn’t much to balance out all the darkness. There is a mis-match of fonts and typefaces going off. The navigation font is nice but nothing else goes with it. It’s very slab and blocky, the headline font is round and bold, they don’t match. then further down theres another font that has it’s own vernacular. You don’t need two strong display fonts in the same page. You have body copy text that is set in uppercase. This should never be done, uppercase lettering for body copy is a big no no in typography. Ok so thats my critical opinion. So hopefully theres something to go on there. Please don’t think I’m being harsh coz you know i like ya. The layout is great, you just need to re-work the typography and it’ll be great. Choose 1 display font and one body copy font and you’ll be fine for one page. then you’ll be spot on smizzle.
