    Wow really beautiful, love the colors! I say yes to everything. Was this theme customized or is this a custom built theme?

    I completely customized the theme, down to the last pixel! I am a designer after all. I'm glad you like it! Much appreciated.

    I rarely critique sites, but the image of the site intrigued me enough to click the link...

    Yes, very intuitive, easy enough to navigate and no confusion on what each page is about.

    Very nice for a WP layout, one of the few I've seen this nice.

    I really liked and appreciated the fact that you actually do have something for those that don't have flash installed, and don't try to force it on to users to view the site.... one of the best implementations I've seen in a while.

    Now for the negative:

    I dialed the number, got a disconnected cell phone. went to your contact page I understood: "Windsor, ON, CAN".... and that's why when you search for "web design windsor ontario" your site doesn't show up on google or anywhere else for that matter.

    Then I looked here: http://laurenlund.com/robots.txt and understand why no search engines are really indexing your site....

    this will keep all legitimate search engines from indexing your pages:

    Code:
    User-agent: *
    Disallow:
    don't know if it's intentional ( can think of a reason why ), or accidental ( some developers put this in to keep their sites from being indexed during the development phase and forget to take it out )

    if you open that up, spell out your location, put good descriptive titles on all the pages.... possibly some long tailed keywords on the meta tags....

    I am not a fan of Cu3R, but for some reason I do not mind it on your site. Outside of that, I am really digging the customization. Nice work.
    I have gotten into the habit of not judging other designers/developers work, but this is my Microsoft Meandering time so I'm MEANDERING...

    Oh, almost forgot: spammers are gender-less parasites...
