    It's pretty nice - The navigation doesn't stand out but its nothing to complain about. Also when you saved your flash files did you set the jpeg quality to 100% in publish settings? They look alittle blurry thats all.

    mising something

    I am just curious.. before i make this comment i want to know what you wanted to accomplish with the site?

    Well the reason i ask that is because (by the way i like the lay out) well it just seems like its missing something by way of design.. i mean the navigation is easy simple and user friendly... but then the rest of the site is also that ... but then its almost too simple.. i mean i expect that from a html site.. but you got to much flash going on for me to look at it as html.. i mean you aint got to have stuff jumping off the screen at folks (thats what i like to do ) but.. well lemmie just stop here... maybe i am just all flashed out...

    i love yall

    yo main man lenny

    nice design...it seems a very metro look.
    minimal and clear.

    Have the portfolio links appear after clicking a link though. It would add depth and make it seem like there's more content.
    FYI :: DSL, IE 6, Win Me, 1280 x 1024
    Hoping for PowerBook G4

    Website feedback.

    Add some bullets to the information and case studies as well as to the links underneath them.

    four cents

    i like the site, my two cents are all the information buttons are a little bit boring in terms of what appears just plain text and also all the button at the top don't seem to be necessarily left aligned with each other perfectly... lastly, i guess my third cent, i have 1280x1024 res and i don't like that it resizes to bigger than my window so i cannot see the status bar at the bottom of my browser, not a big deal. mmmm a p.s. cent making this a total of four cents, sound might be nice...

    great simple site. You won't win a fwa with it, but it's a very well done site.

    I don't like white that much it hurts my eyes, i usually use almost white (#EFEFEF) for the backsgounds, it's not so brighty.

    For that minimal style I like Arial a lot... but in Flash it is blurry like most other fonts... maybe try some pixel fonts... FFFAlias maybe?... Also, I would add a bit more color to the rollover... perhaps reuse that cyanish color or introduce a magentaish color on a selected/hovered link... your logo is blurry --fix that up in PS. nice work.

    I like the simple design. Sometimes simple is good. Not really feeling the links, but everything else is tight.

    Nice and clean, looks professional.
    Only two suggestions:
    1: Make the active link stand out. I like to be reminded which button i clicked last. Nothing special, just changing the position or color a little. That would be nice.
    2: Use a grid to align different portions of the site. Like aligning the paragraph that contains telephone number and all that with the word "description" from the case studies.
