    Just arrived on this site and thought I'd share a project I was working on and I'm looking for some feedback.

    Content is lacking at the moment but I'm finding it hard to judge the visual aspect after looking at it for so damn long!

    I won't throw my toys out of the pram if you say it's rubbish, any comment welcome.

    I'll start myself, 1) I think the top Navigation is weak.

    Take this as a compliment because its meant to be. Its just like a template. Its very professional looking. The code is clean and it gets straight to the point on what the sites about. I like it.

    I agree with the menu, maybe have a border bottom thats a light color when you rollover it?

    Also I suggest removing the image and the contact us box's on the subpages, it only really needs to be on the index as 98% of users will look at that.

    remove the site admin link at the bottom, or replace it with something like "This site works better in Google Chrome" or something like that. You dont really want hackers.

    Also I presume your going to have a contact us form on the Contact page?

    Other than those, man its a good looking site. Keep it up

    EDIT: I suggest you have a link in the menu linking back to the Homepage. It will help stop confuse potential clients

    Have you tried removing the image rotator off the other pages? When I go to another page I have to check the bottom to make sure I'm on a new page. Other than that, it looks good.

    Looks nice, I'd say remove the slider from all pages except home, looks quite good when I tried it out in Chrome. Nice clean design though, I'd maybe say add some more red, and possibly a logo? I don't know really, a literal logo based around a ruby rose wouldn't be all that difficult though.

    But really these suggestions wouldn't noticeably improve your site much, looks good already!

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll definitely take the template comments as compliments!

    Ganners I have tried in vain to create a literal logo, I may have another go when I've finished the site to top it off. Get my head in Illustrator again.

    I viewed the site on a netbook last night (1024 x 600?) and it was annoying having to scroll down to see the main content every time, so I think I will be removing the slideshow and side features from the content pages and keep it to the landing page. You people were correctamundo! Although presumptions of me being unable to remove it are incorrect.

    This is indeed a very useful forum.

    Having a logo is not a must. It's like adding a fancy signature for all intent purposes.
