    It's very good! Pretty nicely constructed site.

    I find it feels more like an infomation/news site then a services site because of the layout used.

    Colours a little washed out for my liking...

    I ran it thought W3C parser and it came up with 115 errors...

    Keep uo the good work! Hagen

    You should apply some of the design skill for clients on your own site. There are way too many nav choices in and around the main content area.

    And the main content seems incidental to all the navigation.

    Next I'd try to target value added clients with interfaces which stress visual merchandising and maximum sales rather than pretty. Pretty is okay, but you can get a very pretty UI which decreases sales ....while another, equally pretty, boosts conversions.

    Knowing the difference is what you want to stress if you want to sell premium layouts.

    In all it's a confusing with little evidence of proper visual flow shown in your own examples. Develop a visual hierarchy. Strive to simplify the navigation. Make the central column content draw the eye.

    (For a related article, check out the "Wireframe Layout" link in my sig. It's about improving visual flow.) Also check out an article on Fitts' law ...because you're violating it, and I don't think you want to pay the penalty.
