My initial view is one of dislike. How dare you appear above Aardvark in the alphabet! Wink

Seriously for a moment, and commenting only on the appearance rather than the code, I think it looks OK. A few points to mention, though:

- I don't think the buttons across the top are very obvious... the writing on them is pretty small

- I think the main image/text scrolls just a little too fast. Admittedly, I'm a slow reader but I find myself reading the text and, just as I get near to the end, it's whisked away.

- I think the homepage is a bit on the long side

- I couldn't see any navigation that takes you to your blog (which I happened to chance upon within your Twitter feed).

Hope this is a useful start.

Aaron

Hi,

I'm not a graphics guy, first impressions are as follows.

1. Copyright out of date.
2, Yopu don't have an html sitemap and the .xml version is out of date.
3. you don't have a video sitemap
4. The favicon for your website does not load

Nice clean site, I wish you success.

Yes i agree certainly add an about us page!

All in all it looks quite nice, but i have noticed some display issues on Firefox (ver Cool. The main navigation is only 50% visible, as it has been pushed down under the frame beneath. I would remove or reduce the padding-top from the #buttons (line 67) style so they are not pushed under the frame below.

Also your strap line and contact information has been pushed down too far (again in firefox) Easy fix, just reduce the margin-top on your #header .contact h1 style (line 46)

With your carousel, try adding a link into each slide to take the user to more information about each USP, they have a very high click through rate to targeted content.

Personally i would change your page background to something that helps give a nice contrast to your page, so it stands off well.

Hope this helps Smile
