    Decent site overall.
    But I would suggest you tweak your logo a bit more ...

    Yep, the logo needs some tweaking.

    Also, the navigation is a little hardly readable and not well centered - maybe allign it right?

    Not so bad though

    I don`t like the text floating slowly down the top left, it looks weird, also inside of the flash header the white box...that to IMHO doesn`t sit right, why have a click link in the header to the site you`re on already!

    The menu fonts needs making alittle wider, you need a margin to the right of the intro text, next to the picture, and the text below needs bringing up, taking that gap away, NEws, Login Area font is to small and blured, the colors on site don`t seem to blend well, I would blend them in from the header, give it some kind of flow, hope this helps in some way, good luck.

    Nice site to visit :)

    Hi!

    Really nice flash animation! I liked it.
    But in others images you should add 'alt' property to them. Coz without graphical browser it will be difficult to get known what is there. Me personally, browse web with images turned off for less traffic. And in W3C walidator in will be difficul to walidate a page withou alt property in img tag.

    But in others site is good.
    P.S. Just for my personall advertising - http://www.oksima.biz is my site
    Not so good, i suppose, but still..

    The headers for news, login area, etc. are barely readable on WinXP IE6.0 at 1280x1024. They are quite smuched. I think a different font should be used in the image for better readability.

    It has a beautiful color scheme! It's perfect-- don't change it. The Georgia font is wonderful.

    Cons:
    -On dialup the site took awhile to load.
    -Your links are really very small, even at 800x600. I agree with pixelputty about the font. Are you using something like "Impact?" It's too narrow and I think a wider font would look better.
    -You have a header with moving images, so I'm not sure you need another section (the pictures) with moving images. Seems like overkill to me.

    Two things 1st I would center the website using <div align=center> </div>. Second for the bottom of the site use css to do a roll over effect on them. That way when someone mouse overs the links on the bottom they will auto underline.

    thank you for your suggestions, i really apreciate it.

    anddy15 : it's a tableless site, if i put <div align=center> it will only center the text on the site.I have plans for the left area, it won't remain empty.

    Cheers

    The site is a little too busy,the flash is irritating when you are trying to read the text.

    Superb Flash Animations! I LOVE the contrast on those graphics!

    Some things that I'd do if I were you:
    1. I'd put at least a few more pixels between the text and the smaller animation on the main page
    2. I'd remove the "next" button on the 2nd page of the 'folio as there actually isn't any next page.
    3. If you are considering some SEO, I'd say change the title to "Affordable web design services @ DM Soft Studio" as the first few words of a title are more important keyword-wise

    That's all

    It looks pretty good to me but personally I think the flash at the top is too large. That is a personal preference. The page opens nicely.

    Great design. The flash banner looks awesome the first time you open the front page but gets annoying as you are navigating through the different sections.

    I know this would be a hassle but my suggestion is to leave the flash banner on the front page and ut a graphic banner on the other page.

    Your roll over for the navigation buttons are abit awkward. The lines that pop out just seem like some one forgot to erase a portion of a line. IMO you should take out the line rollover and leave the triangle ones.

    Finally, I just want to comment on some really useful texts that you have on your site for driving web traffic to you site. Their really informative and helpful.

    Hope that helped and good luck with you exisitng website.

    Above all excellent design with little inconsistency in top (flash) and main (body) area font typefaces. Flash Top shows sans serif and body shows serif. Though I like sans serif.

    Hello,
    I like the flash header and color scheme is nice.
    I noticed the drop down menu near the top menu doesn't align the main menu, you should check it.
    Best,

    Overal quite nice.

    The one thing I really didn't like was the scrolling text in the left part of your flash header.

    Your text is quite small and non-resizable in IE, maybe you could make the deafult a bit bigger.

    Top and bottom links could easily be text instead of images.

    1. very functional design, headings are clear and easy to find
    2. there is a fair amount of text on the front page, maybe reduce it abit and increase the font size
    3. logo needs improvement
    4. Overall I think its pretty darn good!

    Great site overall, very nice clean and organised look to it, I really like it!

    Some improvements I would add:

    - Make your logo abit more prominent and stand out a bit more.
    - Height wise try to make the page a bit smaller, maybe making the header a few pixels smaller. Just as it is now (on 1024x768) a vertical scrollbar appears and really theres only one line it scrolls down to, the copyright information. I think it would look much better if it all sat on the one screen.

    Thats really all I can find, great site over all. Love the look and ease of use, great navigation and layout.

    I glanced at the home page and one other page, and my kneejerk reaction was "nice site." I like the logo and the background color scheme. I didn't see any obvious problems, except possibly the Flash in the top right corner. I have a dial-up connection, so I never did see it load. (I've come to hate Flash.)

    I have one minor critique... Why are you using a serif font in the menu at the top of the page? Not that that violates any rules, but I think Arial, Verdana, or something similar would work better. It just looks a little odd to me.

    My thoughts.

    It doesn't look like a home page.
    Honestly it looks like an article out of CNET.
    Partly because of the Flash animations which look just like ads in the middle of articles.

    Also you text has many underlines which look like links. I would find another method to highlight those words and maybe less. Your bolded words are the links which should be underlined or more obvious.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I think it looks professional, the flash is a nice bonus. The only con for me is the left navigation box, it's too bland. Maybe try a different color, the light blue really dulls it. Other than that, great job, I especially liked the top nav bar.

    The overall design is great and easy on the eyes.

    I would space out your 'latest news' section like you have done to the main text section to give it 'breathing space'.

    Good job.

    hmm, your flash image is kind of... strang... And it doesnt add much to the site... And it takes a long time to load on 56k... Other then that its a pretty nice site, the underlying confuses people, It makes them think "Oo a hyperlink!" and then they discover its not a hyperlin... try to underline as little as possible since it cuts off the bottom of words with y, g ect... in them.. Good job overall though.
    where are the snowdens of yesteryear?
