Design Website

I was wondering if you would be willing to critique a website. parts are still under construction but the bulk of it is up. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Thank you guys,

Your comments are very encouraging. We are just starting to get things off the ground and it seems a little overwhelming at times but it's nice to read such kind words. They really push me to keep going.

Thanks

Nice looking site. Feels responsive and visually it comes across as very clean - I like the use of whitespace and the flyouts for the graphic examples. The font is fine for the menus and page titles, but really is not a good choice for the main content as it can be hard to read.

Not enough content yet to comment much on the usefulness.

Being written entirely in Flash begs one question: do you have a plan for making your site search engine friendly? As it is, none of the content will be indexed by any of the top search engine robots.

Another drawback is that potential clients will find it very difficult to capture content if they need to - they'll have to resort to screen captures.

I get only a blank screen in Firefox (beta 1.5).

I had to dust off Internet Explorer to see it. It's beautiful!

Kurt,

Flash not being search engine friendly was always a concern but after looking through several forums here it seems not that many people actually receive buisness directly from web hits so ultimatley I'm not that concerned. I think it will serve it's purpose best as a portfolio for potential clients to look at. I will definitely consider your suggestion about the fonts. Also, in terms of capture, I am toying with the idea of providing all important content on downloadable pdf. It'll give the content a more professional appearance and will probably be easier for everyone. Thank you for your comments... lots to think about.

Pierre,

I'll have to look into the Firefox situation. Hmmm.... Thanks for the heads up.

True, from what I've read on Search Engine Optimization. The web is getting too big for anybody to get found. However, I think your website is excellent. It really speaks to the customer and says, "Hey, I've got something you need!". I wish I could sell myself like that.
