These are common reactions. You'll have to weigh - if this webpage is at a place where it is 'helping' you - or 'hurting' you.

You can look at Derek's website. It's really simple - and not fancy at all: sheriffderek.consulting - but also there isn't anything overtly broken - or much to worry a visitor.

We often start our client projects with just a contact page and some simple typography. Less can be more when you're dealing with clients. Then from there - we build out a style-guide (behind the scenes) / here's a simple example: Gold collective website - with all the modules on one page / and then work out the type on all screen sized etc. THEN - when it's all ready - and we've tested it out with users, we'll make it live.

One time a while back, Derek got a 135k+ job - with just his name and an email address in the top left corner of a really bright website.

Just some things to think about!
