    Not bad. How come there is a sound on the homepage and about us rollover but not on any others? Also, was it made in flash and if so what version did you use, and if not, then what program/combination did you use?

    It is a nicely designed site, but you have too much information on 1 page. The buttons on your lower menu are too dark, write an onmouse in your CSS file, also try to change the color of your hyperlinks...

    Nice distinct style,

    Suggestions:

    The mouseover sound is some what slow and erratic, you could probably lose this feature. The flash banner transition/animation is cool the first time round, but when your forced to see it over & over etc when loading other pages, it becomes really irritating. - Could you create a static version for other pages ?

    Search engines can't follow links embedded in flash files, thats why its a good idea to have a 'site map' - which you have, except thats also part of the flash banner. A good place would be a normal html link in the page footer.

    *Simple things like capital letters on titles/important links.
    *Eliminate horizontal scrolling on your content boxes.
    *The text on your 'services' button is mis-aligned.
    *A bigger, more readable font size.

    Unless you've got a really good spam filter, avoid writing email addresses in your pages - A safe method would include hiding it in javascript or using a form with a server side language like php. This helps avoid collecting spam. - I brought this up because you have a meta-tag that includes an email.

    There's really only one index page of a site, you could rename the rest to be more descriptive of whats on it. Ie instead of 'index-3.html' you could use 'projects.html'.

    Hope you find this of use.

    Trico makes good points. I'd like to stress the point about the banner animation. After 3 pages, it just gets annoying. Maybe you can find another way of loading your content on subsequent pages or have a second banner without the loading of it?
