    I like it so far. My biggest suggestion for you is to get rid of the hotmail address. That looks extremely unprofessional. And be sure to include rollovers with this design. I looooove rollovers. :ichatangel:

    Thanks for the fast responce.
    Chamberland painting just purchased the domain name so I will now be able to use @chambpainting.com which will look much more professional. I also do plan to use rollovers once the seconday pages are designed and functioning. Thanks for the suggestions. It is helpful.

    First of all, "References" is misspelled.

    Secondly, I'm not a big fan of all-graphic opening pages. They're not very search-engine friendly as a rule of thumb (and this is the page that will get indexed first and foremost in 99% of cases) and they also tend to take longer to load, which can drive away a good number of people.

    It's real purdy though. I'll give it that. I like the colour scheme and the sans-serif fonts used. Makes stuff easy to read, and I'm down with that.

    I'd give it a 3.

    Thanks for the response. And for noticing the misspelling. I haven't run spell-check on the site thus far. Not even the client has viewed this yet. As for being an "all Graphic Site" I just began this site. I have been in the preliminary design stages and just began the mock up in fireworks. There for I just exported the site for viewing purposes only. I will optimize the site for best viewing when the final stages approach. Thanks for the feedback. I am just worried about the looks right now. I deal with the coding of the website after the layout is completed to my liking and the clients liking.

    Im not sure the blur is working very well for you on your page. It looks good at first glace but when ppl stop to look at it they get confused. Most places prefer crisp clear images on their opening page. Also check the layers on the center circle its overlaping stuff it shouldent be. And your definatly gonna need to have rollovers.
