    Hey Sara,

    Nice site overall in terms of style. My complaints are all in terms of usability:
    1. Inverted text (white on black bg) in tiny font is difficult to read. I got through one sentence, and I was TRYING.
    2. Scrolling services list on the homepage... why? Do you have to make it difficult for people to learn what you do?? The scrollbar isn't even easy to use and it doesn't line up with the "philosophy" box on the bottom. Why not make the services rotate through like a scrolling marquee?
    3. Process page looks good, save for the font problems.
    4. Boom "whoa !!" services page... we're presented with this gray table out of nowhere. Keep your color scheme consistent between pages or the site will exude a chaotic feeling to people and make them want to leave
    5. Booh "whoa again !!!" contact page... now we get this ochre yellow table... same thing... pick one color for your content background (white, preferably) and stick with it.
    6. Portfolio looks good enough, but there are only 2 projects. Design the section for more, because hopefully soon you'll have more. Also, add information about the projects... who they were for, what kind of work they involved, and when you did them

    I give it a 3 (3.5, really, but there's no option for that :-P).

    Fix the color inconsistency and you get a 4 ;-)

    Oh, another idea... if you want an animation for your flash thing on top, why not animate the computer board in the background? You could easily emulate a sheen shift by creating a gradient shape tween.

    I have Flash disabled (as well as all ActiveX controls) so the top banner looks completely screwed up (like a broken image).

    You can put an alternate image in place of flash if someone has it disabled. There is a javascript available for it.

    Try searching here: [searchweb]javascript flash swf alternate gif[/searchweb]

    BTW, Filburt... woudl you mind helping me test some alternate flash content for some projects when I get there? Thanks

    I agree with Transio's comments. I'm also not a fan of how the homepage has a very tall banner, and the rest of the pages have a very short banner. I gave you a 4, cause I think a 3.5 is appropriate too (me and Transio balance each other out :ichatcool: ).
