    Nice looking site. I like the page transitions... never seen that before. Decent work in your portfolio, too

    fantastic animation!! but personally, i dont like it too much..

    Your work is great but im not a fan of that type of site.. I like that you have a HTML option but i dont like the way it opens in a new window..

    you have sort of restricted yuor market to people with the flash player, fast PC's and ISDN connections..

    3.5/5

    Good looking Flash site - smooth transitions/interesting use of colour (in a good way!). The HTML version looks a bit dull/old in comparison though.

    It might be an idea to make the links appear in one line only on the HTML version. Home Page and Contact us are split over two lines.

    Thanks for the feedback.
    Im not sure that the limited audience to flash ISDN/ADSL is fair as we did create a fully HTML low bandwidth version.
    The popup is to preserve a fixed aspect on our design, Normally I agree that this is a bad trait in an info or text
    heavy website however we are a design biased web agency
    so visual Impact was important.
    We are having issues getting regularly Indexed in google
    any advice welcome or if suitable a links exchange could help us and you. I think it mostly relates to lack of refering links.

    If your sites not been live for very long then Google may not have found you yet. It took about 3 months for mine to be indexed correctly. It takes about 4 - 5 weeks for each re-index so you'll probably have to sit tight on that one and wait. Being spidered by the Googlebot doesn't immediately index your site, you've still got to wait for the Googledance.

    I think you need to put a bit more effort into the HTML version of the site. Make sure the Meta tags are comprehensive to improve search engine ranking - put a link to the Flash version of the site on each page, then if Google index's the HTML pages people can switch over if they arrive halfway into the site.

    Also I generally go to HTML versions of sites if I can and having looked at both the Flash and HTML versions it looks as though you are selling those on slower connections short.

    While credit is due for making an HTML version (most people don't) it is possible to shoot oneself in the foot if that site is not up to scratch as visitors will feel alienated if they are only getting a very reduced version of the site.

    i think that most compatibility issues are completely invisible to the average user and/or potential customer. The only people that pick up on such things are US 'the fellow designers'..
    So im going to change my rating from a 3.5 to a 4.0 WOO HOO..
    I would give it a five but i dont like flash or popup windows..

    If you want a fixed size for your flash object, you can specify a size for it and center the object in your html page.... no neec to pop up a new window just to maintain the aspect.

    thats true about centering transio, however due to the scroll effect of our pages we didn't think an embeded flash object would sell that concept as well as a popup.
