    The design was eye-pleasing, since the colour contrasts wasn’t too sharp (nor too soft). However:

    • The menu list should be changed: (Probable) clients wants to see your portfolio and what services you offer, then read about the company/business. Personally I’d like to see Portfolio right next to "Home" on the menu.[/*:m]
    • Get-A-Quote and Contact us forms should’ve been somewhat more fitting in the design[/*:m]
    • The services-listing: Why not have four columns, so the user doesn’t have to click to see?[/*:m]
    • Portfolio: How’bout a description or a title or something for each project? Also it’s great to provide a link to the website in question[/*:m][/list:u]

      Quick-note about the contact form: Since you haven’t wrapped your input-elements inside a label, you’ll need to add the for-attribute to each label.

      For instance:

    Initial tought: It looked like a hat or a hammer (think Mjolnir).

    Perhaps you should add a subtle curved line around where the cone starts to form upwards, so you can make out the cone-shape some more.

    Another thing: Why don’t you lose the gradient-colouring and use white and plain/light blue as background? I’d love to see a more simplistic logo.

    Don’t forget the lack of Direct X. But apart from that, a Mac is a perfectly good working computer, but it takes a while to get used to (if you didn’t grow up with one) and it has the price of at least two perfectly working computers running Linux/Win.

    As soon as IE has been wiped away from all the world’s computers, the Eternal Fight between Safari and Firefox will be settled. It is said that the Legendary Steve Ballmer will be chair-throwing the winner till he dies of a heart attack.

    In other words, all browsers will soon have a perfect Firebug-clone and only small rendering technicalities will seperate them from each other. If we’re to talk about CSS support, I’ll say Opera without a doubt. Else, I prefer FF3 on Win/Linux-boxes and Safari on Mac.

    The new one is lovely; you get right to the case, which is the portfolio and search/contact. If there’s something to be picky about, I’d say the contact-form was a bit too hidden away, almost as if you didn’t want it there. Also, no navigational links? One page and a lot links leading to blog posts? How do you intend to solve the going-back-from-blog-to-home?

    Isn’t there a way of making them do a CAPTCHA when registering as a user? I believe there’s a plugin somewhere…

    That goes for Firefox 2, as well.

    • The background music was a nice touch, though I didn’t see the player at first and wondered where I could shut it off (ended with a mute instead)[/*:m]
    • I got a horizontal scrollbar when viewing in Firefox 2, 1024×768 resolution[/*:m]
    • The nav-links was difficult to read (thin, crusty) – looked better with a bit of bold (like your own page’s nav)[/*:m]
    • Personally I’d like to see the RSS/FB/MySpace icons reduced in size and placed on top, with a shader on (nice hover effect and more in-theme) [/*:m][/list:u]

    Nice and trendy design, though there’s one issue that confused me:
    On the portfolio-slides, the different projects/showcases was numbered, which I then carelessly labeled as different screenshots/whatever – not different projects. You get what I mean? Personally I don’t look for numerical information when strolling through a portfolio. Corporate names tend to appeal more to users too, instead of project numbers.

    Perhaps a Next-Prev navigation would be easier to understand. Or maybe someone else’ve got an idea…

    Could it be a reversed menu stepdown? Check out Chris’ article about it.

    Easier to write /blog/ too. Annoying with an additional ".", IMHO.

    Building your own CSS frameworks is almost always to prefer, as they’ll not include styles that won’t be used. Personally I like to have full controll over each CSS, as it feels "safer", if you know what I mean…

    Of course, on a privacy related level, you should inform your clients that Google will automatically go through the e-mails, scan them for keywords and bring up relevant ads (on the right or top side) if logged in through webmail. If you use Thunderbird/etc, ads won’t be a problem.

    And here’s a link to Google Apps. (although it shouldn’t be hard to find, haha)

    Still, we’ve got that guy who thought it was a Counter-Strike: Source (abbr.: CSS) forum. And I could understand that a gamer without any clue of webdesign terminology could confuse it for one. Still, when you get to the front page there’s no chance in hell visitors should belive that this page isn’t about cascading style sheets.
