Designing a site for a friend in the private investigator business. As of now it's just him and another associate.

One day I like the color scheme and the next I don't. I welcome any and all comments.

Additionally, I am also wonder what is the best way to apply this to DW. App divs?

Thanks.

I like the colours personally but I'm not convinced by the bevel on the menu block on the left hand side. Other than that I think you are on a good path. I wouldn't use APdivs, look at relatively positioned divs to make sure your site flows together and leaves room for expansion in the future. Good luck :)

Ya, the bevel is off. Think I will fix that with just an outlined box. Thanks for the response.

Hey rizzpen... Site is OK - I would take a little time looking at how the 'building blocks' fit together. Consider the gaps, edges and the way someone would read the site. It looks a bit static, try and get a good flow and maybe introduce some rounded edges or gradients to lift it a little. Some better photos wouldn't hurt either, they don't say Magnum PI to me.

Here's an idea... why not go for a film noir look as a theme?
