I was wondering to myself: "Where have I seen that idea in header??" And suddenly I remembered that it was: [link] Anyway, good design, however I don't like the typography in the dark half of the site. But I love the logo
I guess I would have to agree with the idea that it looks a little recycled. I would try spacing out the main navigation links and perhaps using something different than the twist of images. I felt it was hard to grasp the designs and imagery in the twist itself and it kind of left me wondering what some of them were. I would try increasing the font size of the "Hi, I'm a designer..." paragraph to make it a little more noticeable.
I think the bottom half works well with the imagery, color and typography you chose. I hope some of this helps. Overall I like the design and I am interested to see where you take it.
A tad too many elements that are not original. Like the banner reminds me too much of iLife. The + signs I've seen them somewhere in an ad somewhere, can't quite remember. And do you have the rights to use Marvin?lol. Other than that looks great.
