    It fails an HTML validation: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...om%2Findex.asp

    You should always specify the "alt" tag for images. If the image has no useful content to the visually impared, you should use:
    Code:
    <img ... alt="" ... />

    It's okay, but I find it a little jam packed. As soon as you get on the site there is just loads of blocks of text chucked at you. The rest of the pages aren't as bad, but the homepage, you don't know where to start.
    Although I like you logo, I am not too sure on the menu. In my opinion the drop downs just look a little untidy. Maybe I am being a little bit too fussy with that?

    Like I said before though, your company logo is cool.

    I agree with Dan about it being too cramped.

    The site is quite good for news line, I suppose.
    But it is too squarable for a design company.
    It is the case of the lack of creativity.

    Good luck!

    Rethink your name. "Outer box" makes me think "the box around us" which logically leads to "we think inside the box."

    Of course, thinking inside the box would be a point of difference in today's business world - when everyone says how they "think outside the box."

    The company has been around for a while, the name isn't changing. People always compliment our name and say they contacted us because they liked the name. Considering under our logo it says "think on the outside" i wouldn't think a person would think it means inside. Most people say it reminds them of "think outside the box" when they hear the name only.

    I guess there are execptions...

    It's funny that something as simple as a name can influence buyers.
    First the design of your site is Great!

    Your main site uses a square layout, which contradicts the name of your site (company).
    To me “out of the box” means different but this isn’t shown in your site, which has used a good square design.

    Don’t get me wrong I like the design of your site but it doesn’t fit the name!

    Peter...thanks. A lot of peopel said they like the boxey look of the site, because it went with the name. I know what you mean though, there are 2 ways to look at it.

    Outerbox, is it just me, or do you like the "a lot of people have said" excuse

    About the site, it is OK. It is very boxy, as others have said, and it is very cramped with text. Try to maybe add a few curves in, not so many borders, and maybe reduce the text amount a bit?

    Also, the grey boxes really bring down the tone of the site. A lighter grey would have been much better.

    All in all, it's a very dull site. Brighten it up a bit - lighter background colours, a few different colours on the layout etc.

    You have a good base, but, as it is, I would give it about 2.5/5.
