All right - the ridings are in, and it looks like version one of the revised Copper Man site is about 30% good. Karl likes the color scheme and notes the size issue; Ansley (offline) also notes the size issue and was less enthused by the overall design scheme, making note of the outline font (Formata, for those keeping score); and Shaun also didn't like the font and the backing photo. For the record, the backing photo was 'temp,' as 'Dave on the beach' is not the image I really should project. Shaun did like the sounds. The sounds were, in fact, probably the most successful part of the design thus far, so that will be continued.
Response to the color scheme was somewhat muted, although Marina liked it, and even though blue is not 'my' color, I think it's appealing to more people than my preferred colors - which are more autumnal (such as the Rambler), auburn, grey and rusted gold. Yesenia also liked the design - but, then, she married me so her aesthetic judgment as concerns Dave must be considered suspect.
Christine, don't think I've let you off the hook. You must go and look at the current draft and share some thoughts, that they can be considered and incorporated in the next draft.
I'll be doing more work on it this week, so all of you are officially asked to continue in the role of feedbacking. And I suspect that the Rambler this week will mostly document that particular struggle within myself.
