Interesting design... why did you choose to start from the bottom right corner? You could have done the same thing from the top left, or top center. Also, the menu is not readily apparent, and the little icons are so small that it's kind of difficult to use. Those are just my first impressions. I'm sure one of the pros will come along with a more in-depth review.

hmm... lessee 'ere...
mmm.... Suho brings a good point....... I'm not real sure as to why you chose the bottom right corner as a starting point.... Personally... I don't find that style very appealing for this particular site.
On the other hand.... Suho's comment about the little icons and blah blah.... I like 'em.
Small is goo'. berry goo'.
Although, one little qualm I have with the navigation is that before I actually click to go anywhere on Flash sites.... I'm usually going to mouse over each option possible prior to choosing the button that I feel like veiwing......... In this case, I chose the "play" button first. And by doing that.... I by-passed two other buttons altogether because of the way that the site expands....... so that was kind of a let down.
What you've created so far, I really enjoy. I feel like the graphics are slipped into the site very nicely. They're simple, yet they hint at complexity. A very tasty combination.

For a few last thoughts..... I'll re-iterate that I think the "site" is much better layed out in the top left or center.
For the most part.... this needs more. A lot more.
I like it a lot.... but this isn't a site....... it's a portion of a site.
I've got a lot of ideas for fully functioning sites that I think would work with this sort of style you're working on here...
Mebbe we can find some time to chit chat this weekend....
You and I can toss a few things back and forth. =)

hey hey :]
thanks for responding..
i chose the bottom right because i have no idea why
:P
actually it's more because you never see sites made using that as their center. i dunno. strive to be different :]

seems u got a mixed opinion of it, taxon :}
i agree that clicking buttons that bring you to upper levels first is a little dissapointing, and i also agree that it's not *much* of a site. i'm glad you see the hints of complexity in some of my design though.
i'd love to talk about it more.. u know where to find me :]

Personally I think the starting at the bottom right works just as well as top left, and better than topright/bottom left would. I don't see how it hinders the useability of the site either, so that is good, and aesthetically I think the difference it makes either way is negligable. What's more it does makes the site more individual/memorable. Only thing that I would say could be improved is to make the whole thing slightly larger, especially widthways. And then have more on it to be accomodated by the extra space.

One other thing how do you go about getting contracts for doing professional websites at the age of 15?
