    This site was made for a sister company of the company I work for. It was one of those, "We need a new site sooner than ASAP, even though we knew we needed one for a long time."

    I may not have done the best job of explaining that, but I’m sure you all know what I mean. The only thing they gave me was the "VirtualHealth" logo in the corner, and told me to go crazy. It’s been an insane week and a half, but it finally went live yesterday.

    Anyway, this is one of my first top-to-bottom projects, and the more I learn the better. All tips and critiques are welcome.



    Thanks for the quick pointers, I definitely see your point…

    Try this and see if it’s any better.

    By the way, I did take the flash intro out of the REAL site, the original url I had posted was the test site. I would never leave something up against the clients wishes, lol!


    White hover-over – what would you recommend? (Not being a smart-alec, really wanted to know a good choice, I was trying to stay in three colors (orange, blurple, white).

    Footer – Didn’t understand, was the logo in the footer covering the menu when you were looking at it?

    Scrolling text – thats part of a flash that the client specifically requested, every frame/image/text/transition was per the client’s request.

    3 tabs under the flash banner – Also, completely mocked up by client and requested to be EXACT, even down to the font styling.

    About: I agree that the images could be better, I wasn’t given very good quality images, which made them hard to crop out and retouch. I see your point with the colored background, that’s one thing that may end up changing.

    News: I’m not familiar with WordPress at all, but I’ll definitely look into it.

    The "Products" were originally under a single page called "Solutions". The client requested each of them to have their own page.

    I can see your point with the blue. This is actually the second version of this site. The first one was mainly white, but they said it created too much empty space. I had originally created a background image that really filled out the sides nicely and tastefully, but was told it was too "strong".

    – None of your comments were taken personally at all, you gave your feedback, which is exactly what I ask for. Thanks!
