The "About Us" box feels awkward. The words with emphasis are styled too differently from each other. It makes it look as though it were a blog tag cloud of random words, rather than an actual paragraph. Try making the emphasized words more uniform in their styling?
Thank you very much, Ashton, for the good words. I’m stoked with the way it’s going.
I did some font changes and really appreciated your advice. I ended up moving the logos out of the banner picture and contrasting them on the white background instead. I feel this fits better but I am also deliberating putting them in the footer…they are important though, so they do need to be ‘above the fold’ per se.
Gorgeous. It’s very clean. The colors fit together very well. I like the overall feel of the website. Nice and cozy.
I think my only critique is the absence of an attention getter or call to action. Now that I’m on the page, I don’t know what I should do. If the clients just want straight leads from the website, I’d put a human down by the contact button to attract more eyeballs.
The site is more informative than lead generating and I think a person down there might kill the flow of the page (client wants it clean as can be), but I might make a custom heading for that section to incite some action on the user’s part.
Very useful feedback, thank you very much, Ashton. By the way, I sent you a PM regarding your site.
– The banner image at the top is way too big. At 1024 x 768, the image alone takes up the entire top half of the page – I have to scroll just to see the bottom of the About Us / Contact Us sections. I think you could safely drop the image down to half the size or so.
– About Us and Contact Us combined have too much going on – they distract from the Featured Property, which is what’s important. I’d say move one of those sections into the green footer, then use the extra space to expand the size of Featured Property and enlarge the image thumbnail.
– Instead of lines separating the different sections in the content area, try using a background color. I think it’ll look cleaner.
– Use more padding – the text is practically touching the border of each container. Give it some breathing room.
I personally like the big banner image at the top. I like daGUY’s idea about separating out the different content with a color. The one thing that bothers me is the nav. I understand wanting that to stand out on the page for ease of use. Maybe its just the bolding of the type or the font. Other than that I think it looks good!
There is a problem with menu on static pages.
I would suggest move static pages into WordPress and then use 1 header and 1 footer for entire site.
At the moment you have 2 different menus and footers – not consistent.
Move search box to the top on blog pages.
