    Hi all,

    I joined today with a view that some of you will be able to review my company's new website.

    It is called 'Brainy Sites'. We are (mostly) Adobe Business Catalyst designers, and we are based in the UK. I have gained lots of feedback from friends and family, but what I really want is harsh criticism from those who really know and understand design.

    There are some teething problems with the site which are being addressed. It's not actually live yet, hence only being able to access it at /index.

    Technically, there are some issues, I see it's flagged as invalid XHTML and invalid CSS, we are aware of this. What I would really appreciate is feedback on two things...
    1. Design. Do you think everything is well placed and arranged to a high level? Don't hold back now....
    2. Information. Do you understand what we are offering? The site packages are pretty obvious, but the Brainy Tools section is what I'm really interested in.

    If even a few of you could take the time to look at this it'd be greatly appreciated. I see there are some really great users here, and I am pleased to be part of your community. I will of course return the favour and review a few sites. Think I'll do that now actually....

    Thanks, Joe.

    Very nice site, brilliant layout, great color scheme, loving the interactivity you have there.

    The one issue I had once i loaded the page was that the site isnt designed for netbook size screens, i design all my work on my netbook that way i know the auto margins and the main wrappers will sit within the 1024 screen size. Maybe look at something like this? as currently potential clients will be scrolling left and right of the page to view content, and unfortunately its a client turn off in my eyes. I usually make the wrapper 1000px wide with margin auto as it fits within the netbook screen snuggly and looks good.

    Other than that a very nice well designed and laid out site. What cms do you use for it?

    Now this just sucks. The one time someone asks me to rip the crap out of his/her site, it's too good to rip the crap out of. You've written your own content. The code is clean. The site's gorgeous. The portfolio would be the envy of most web design companies.

    COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IN THE HELL I'M SUPPOSED TO CRITICIZE?????

    Other than getting a 'coming soon' page when you click on the logo, it's a very nice site. The portfolio page took a long while to load, but that's probably because I'm on an ancient iBook.

    The website looks really nice, I guess the only nitpick I see is the the huge space at the bottom, and that Facebook tab looks isolated. Also you can see the light low quality of the photos. Personally I don't like seeing that on websites. Other than that, everything looks great.
