    Hello to all members!

    I just made a site with event management services and trips offers.
    Also you can find unique traditional products, or to ask for custom travel packages.
    The web site is Malamas services
    It has 4 languages (greek, english, bulgarian and russian).

    Tell me your opinion please.
    Thanks in advance.

    It is extremely slow to load, at least on mobile.

    I thought the buttons were broken, first because they didnt do anything while it was loading. Id click and it would do nothing. Had to wait for the whole page to load. Then when i did click it would change colors but you have to click again for it to actually work. Really bugged me.

    I hate the justified aligned text. The ridiculous spacing between words to fill that block is just causing problems for me.

    Then theres the logo, being a designer it just drives me crazy. Contrast is pretty much nonexistent, and the buttons on the home page are boring/ugly.

    If you didn't make the logo, not really your fault, but the buttons need some help nonetheless.

    +2 for not using WP and for actually trying to do your own thing.

    I'll echo what Vapr_Arts said about the contrast in the logo, although the fix (from a non-designer's eye) is fairly simple...apply a stroke about 2-3 pixels thick and make it white. That would allow the text to remain (mostly) blue while theoretically increasing the legibility, although that would somewhat depend on that logo and font.

    The contrast ratio on the site itself is actually pretty good. Most people miss this completely, and you're one of the few who took it into consideration.

    I'd lose the mystery meat navigation on the photos on the second page. I didn't know they were menu items. Put the text underneath if you have to.

    Depending on your target market, you may want an English site. It's hard for us to comment on content when we don't speak Greek, so I won't go down that road.

    At the bottom of the home page there is a button to change the language to english and a few other options. This button is one of the last things to load and because of that it doesn't work the moment it appears. If you let the site load for about a minute then you should be able to change the language. Unless for some odd reason its only an option on mobile?

    Wow, I missed that button completely. All the stuff spinning and loading totally drew my eye away from it. That, and "lang" is not something people would clue into.

    Also, flags aren't languages. Why flags do not represent languages | Flags are not languages

    You've got a few misspellings (e.g. Management instead of Managment, Carrer instead of Career). You'll also want to look at the title attribute on the English pages...the title is still Greek.

    Here's my big issue, and this is coming from someone with a "travel" site of sorts in the works. You'll want to make it as easy as you can for people to make a reservation, and you'll want to automate it as much as possible. Why? So that the site can do the heavy lifting. If you can do that, then you'll also make it a lot easier down the road for travel agents and people with say a travel site that want to make an affiliate income referring people to your destination tours (not to be confused with thin affiliate lazy people). Right now, your reservation asks for four things, and only two are required. If someone wants to book travel through your website, for the love of God book 'em while you have the chance!
