    Hi -
    I really liked the header [except for the Flash nav - not a fan of the sound and it seems too large for the space] and general layout & color choices.

    There are only a few suggestions I'd make:
    - don't repeat images used in the header w/in the site
    - the layout w/ alt. row colors and gradient headers works well on subpages, but I think your index/home page should be less divided: keep it simple
    - check all of the text - spelling errors like 'Contacts Us' are there
    - don't include team members e-mails
    - check that the contact.php is working: it wanted me to save to disc when I'd clicked on it
    - if you are including a link for more info. [the orange text], keep them consistent, like more>> for each one

    [Didn't examine your code at all...]

    Great start!

    Yes, Quite nice, The flash banner I muse say is a little bit boring. Possible improve on the spinning thing in the top left corner. The navigation rolloevers I think would be better if you had inset lines on the right and the left of the roll over images.The content is layed out nicely and its easy to navigate.

    Great Job!

    Regards,

    I think that most of the pages look good, nice and clean....however

    -I kind of like the gradient, but it seems to disappear into nothingness. I think it needs a more distinct border on the right

    -The middle column on the main page is higher than the others

    -Also, I would put a little space between the boxes on the front page

    I hope this helps

    It's very clean and seems simple to navigate. I'm not a big fan of the color scheme but that's just my personal opinion. With a little more tweaking it will look very professional & I look forward to the finished product. Nice stuff.

    Good layout but I fidn the animated logo a little distracting (maybe only 2 loops) and the black background out of place for a clean looking site with lots of blues.

    The website looks nice and clean and loads quick enough and is very easy to navigate. A few comments:

    Personally i don't like the blue color on the black background, it makes the website pretty dark. The coding of the website is not quite W3C valid.

    Haven't read any of the other reviews for your site because i want you to receive my first impression.

    - the blue background is pretty 'heavy' for the eye against the grey area.
    - make the linked images border=0
    - use more css
    - make the tables titles not so glued to the table's border (can use colspacing or colpadding)
    - some of the links don't work
    - footer is not the same on all pages

    Hope it helps !

    Corrections and Recommended Changes

    Main Page – Profile Page:‎
    ‎1) In the Projects box, “involved is misspelled – switch the “o” and the “l”.‎
    ‎2) Consider altering the Introduction or Profile headings. When you’re in the “Introduction” page, ‎you look up at the links and think that “Profile” is another link.
    Recommend changing the word “INTRODUCTION” to “PROFILE” to match the link heading ‎above.‎
    ‎3) The black background does not seem appropriate. Maybe you can increase the width of your ‎webpage to minimize the black background a little more like 1 or 2 centimeters on both left and ‎right sides.

    Office Team page:‎
    ‎1)Remove the second paragraph single sentence:
    ‎”He set up Hammad Husain Associates, Architects in May 1996.” You repeat this in the following ‎paragraph.‎
    ‎2) Add a period after your 4th paragraph “…Chapter).”
    ‎3) Left justify: “Hammad can be contacted at”; its pushed to the right.‎
    ‎4) Add period after Ghulam Qumber summary.‎
    ‎5) Spell out the MFA acronym under Maryam Nasim summary?‎

    Commercial Projects Page:‎
    ‎1)‎ Consider adding photos of commercial projects; it is probably not appropriate to show ‎residence photos.‎

    Publications page:‎
    ‎-None of your links work in this section
    Conferences page:‎
    ‎-None of your links work in this section
    Pictures page:‎
    ‎-None of your links work in this section
    Useful links page:‎
    ‎-None of your links work in this section

    Hmm, a very light blue, a very faint gradient grey-to-white left-to-right, a very faint gradient blue-to-white left-to-right. If none of those are good a last resort might be a very pale yellow - i would try to avoid that though.

    It just needs a very light shade/colour for a background - anything but black.
