    I like the design, it's very upfront. One thing I recommend is that you include a pricing page.

    The theme of your website doesn't go with your niche. No graphics, no colors. Show your artistic work. Your main slider didn't complete.
    Colors are good, but not appealing or attractive
    no way to judge you are a designer
    show your portfolio on the home page
    your logo doesn't give the feeling of a designer
    use vibrant colors and themes.
    Show your previous work of logos, letter pads. cards on home page, i think a slider at the middle or bottom will be best fit.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    I love how your portfolio is the rectangle design thing but it feels weird on the page like that to me. What if you have just a white background with the rectangle portfolio in the middle but slightly left, then on the right you have some links to whatever else (blog, contact, about, etc.)? Then when someone clicks the link on the right, you can use the layout you have now for those pages. Just an idea. At the very least, I think you should get rid of the "leave a reply" part at the bottom of the page.

    Your actual portfolio is very strong though! I love it!

    You went with a simple style but overdid it.

    Think about what it is you want your website to do. Obviously, it's a portfolio so you need to show your work and get people to hire you. Make your work the centre of the design; it's no good having a bunch of tiny thumbnails linking to your work because they're not the focus. Give your work the full width of the design and make the thumbnails bigger.

    In addition to the above, think about adding some form of image slider to the top of the page to showcase your best/newest projects with a link to your full portfolio. Within the header also add an anchor call to action that links to your contact form (because that's the aim of the website... it's what you want people to do).

    There's some alignment issues within the design too - look down the left side and along the top of 'portfolio' and 'new thoughts'.

    There's no section telling me about you. If I was a company looking to hire someone, I at least want to know the name of the person I'll be contacting and probably what language I should address them in (so tell me where you're from).

    I don't think the way the design looks aesthetically is too far from being good - it just needs you to be more bold with your decisions and add in some flair. Once you get the confidence to do this, the simplicity will play nicely to your advantage.

    Make these changes and you'll be on to a winner.

    Nice and Clean.

    Logo need to clean white background. If you could change the font. Please do it, difficult to read, and people don't like difficulties.

    Best of luck for new design.

    Since you are a designer, you should show your work more using your actual portfolio. Be more creative with it, spice it up with some of your own touches and people will most likely want to hire you.

    If you're a designer it probably would have been better if you actually designed it yourself and not used a themeforest template...
