it's ok but a bit pale -though that could be down to the completely crap montiro i've borrowed ;)

your logo is still a png at over 30k - use a gif instead

don't like the centred text - left aligned is so much easier to read

the 'new' obscures the text below it in firefox

your 'business man on the phone' is a bit too 'stock' stock photography for me

your screenshots of web pages are (all?) pngs (24 bit?!) and huge - save them as jpegs instead

nice logo design :)

your a graphics company so get rid of the man on the phone. It speaks nothing of graphics. I would use weird consept art or some abstract colour blurs to replace the man

remember your a designer so think like one.

take a look at example for ideas.

dont get me wrong your site is nice an clean and i like the design but it doesnt shout DESIGN and in this market place you have to shout loud to get heard

I tried adding something a little more abstract but something doesn't seem right. (see attachment) Any ideas bearing in mind i still want to keep the blue sort of theme??

thats the sort of idea but that has been ripped from the example i posted

go online and look around at art sites. Dive into photoshop and play with filtering on some stock photos and make them your own

Hi Mate,

Your logos are very nice, my fav is the My Nehemiah Project, I like the earthy colours.

Have to say though that the site design doesnt reflect kindly on your logos. It is abit too corporate and dull - nothing wrong with it mind.

IMO, I think you should try and draw more colour into your design. with that banner with the graphic to the right with the geezer or the paint pots what have you, I think you should make it into one collage that reaches from the left to the right.

I would think minimal aswell. Add some CSS typography like line hight and spacing ect, you can say alot with simple css typography... Your logos are very nice, modern and colourfull and deffo think you should reflect these qulaities in your site design, get away from the stuffy IT company ideas. Use colour, be checky and have fun with it.

Goto www.csszengarden.com and check out some of the designs there.

Im sure you will nail it.
