    Review please

    My client has given me a specific list of things he wants and I've brought them all to the table, personally I think the site is a bit off. The content he wanted is supposed to be humorous but professional and the features requested he likes, I'd like opinions from the outside so I know what to tell him in regards to my opinions and his wants.
    It's wordpess so he can add to it as he sees fit, so I'm limited in some respects.
    I'd like to know:
    Does the site flow well?
    Is it usable from an endusers stance?
    Anything that doesn't fit from your point of views?
    Thanks!

    After seen this website i have get following aspects :-

    1. Site Flow/Speed is good.
    2. Some correction needed if you want to usable for end users show some points wise paragraph. also keep heading then user more know about this so try these from mine side what i think.
    3. At last try to make more attractive like footer header also put some images.

    Right off the top, don't make Helvetica Neue your default font. It looks awful on a Windows system when the user has it installed. Arial first, then Helvetica Neue. Or Roboto if you prefer.

    Second, I get why your client wants it to be "cute". It sounds nice, friendly and inviting. The problem is that your client is missing the point completely. Anyone dealing with a tax lien situation is probably going to be pretty stressed out as a result and isn't looking for "cute" as much as "answers". Take me seriously, help me solve my stuff, and then we can be cute later. You can be nice and friendly and professional without being "cute".

    One thing I noticed that was weird:

    Tax Lien Discharge vs. Offer In Compromise | TaxLienHelp.org

    The blue line goes through the header.

    Personally, I think the front page is nicely laid out overall (content notwithstanding) and the other pages should match that general style. The effect on the headers can go, though. Doesn't really add anything. But if you break things down in columns, then you'll be a lot further along. The pictures...if you can find non-stock photos, use those. If not, I guess you're stuck with stock photos.

    This was my entire concern about his content. I'll give him a few edited versions and see if he bites.

    That definitely needs to be fixed, thanks for the heads up!

    I'll look for other images as well, I had used what he provided when he sent me the initial list of things he wanted, and the header effect was not my ideal design so I'll try to talk him out if that also.

    Thanks for the input, its greatly appreciated

    No worries, boss. I figured you wanted someone to have your back on the content.

    Website speed is awesome, though it is not appealing and attractive to user's eyes.

    Suggestions as to what would be more appealing are welcome, blind statements such as this don't leave me with anything to improve upon.

    In my opinion the site is too simple .
    The logo is to far to the left . You should move it .
    Also the same with menu .
    You could add some header image or at least rectangle in the center .
    You should change the pictures sizes - or add some outline to it . For example grey outlined rectangle .

    I've made such suggestions to my client, however he's a bit on the stubborn side and wants things his way. I'll reiterate the suggestions, but at this point I fear its a lost cause.

    The responsive part is not working well the best way to say it is with an image.
