    Ok, I know the design is a bit... tacky. But that is what I was going for. I was going for a bit of a 50s theme. There are a couple things I'll tell you I know already: The stock photography sucks, and the favicon doesn't match. Both are known issues that won't matter.

    EDIT: Also, the links don't work.

    I don't like the font very much. (The font in the navigation and up at top).
    Also, the social site links are sorta hidden. I suggest you make them bigger perhaps

    I think the font would be okay if it were anti-aliased. The way it is now, it's hard to read...that, and not black. Maybe with a neon effect (which you can achieve if you use graphics instead of text) but not the way it is now.

    On the other hand, this font might work better: http://www.fontspace.com/pelle-piano/fabulous-50s

    I dig the whole use of random shapes thing, although the colors aren't quite right to me. I think they need to be more muted.

    That font is perfect. Thanks for that. I struggled for a while with different fonts until I settled on the one that's on there. I might change it this afternoon. Any suggestions for a different color for the menu text?

    Some sort of a 50s color, like that dark red (I think it's a Sedona red) or something.

    Just wondering if its worth changing the menu container color and red banner color to something that will instantly draw your eye to the menu? Or maybe change the container etc color of another section you want potentials to instantly look at? apart from the font theres something there that i just cant put my finger on..... I do however love the container design where its large one end and narrower the other.

    Hope this kinda helps even though I haven't really explained myself very well there... sorry about that..
