    It looks really good. The only thing I see is that the page is designed in the style and graphical quality we've come to expect from you (which is a compliment), but the logo doesn't fit that style. I'm having a bit of trouble explaining it, but basically, the logo is flat and almost a kind of grunge style, but the page design is sleek, with your usual, well-applied gradients and drop shadows.

    I understand your situation with the logo. We sometimes get caught with a company logo made by someone else that needs to be changed and the company won't let us.

    Your site looks good and the only thing I dislike about it is the size of the Contact Us and the Subscribe buttons. I would crop them closer to the letters and make them smaller.

    We also have a visually impaired employee and she could actually read the site without having to zoom and made the comment...it's not a cluttered mess like the majority of the sites are now and the colors are pleasing to my eyes. Not being a cluttered mess is probably one of the reasons she had no difficulties reading the site even with the smaller fonts.

    Good job!

    I wouldn't make the buttons smaller. They're call to action buttons. You want people clicking on them. The only thing I'd do with them is put a stroke around the letters to give them some contrast.

    Other than that, the only thought I have is that the yellowy text on the light background is hard to read because of the lack of contrast. Again, though, you're working off of the logo, so that's not really on you. I'm down with the clown other than that (listening to ICP while I write this post.)

    Not much of one. It's still kind of fuzzy that way.

    Try a 1-2px inset with a slightly bolder weight on the font, #666666 for the shadow color
