    ok. I rate it a 5 right now. You lose points for an instant flash opening program. I personally detest something starting automatically.

    You also have numerous spelling and grammatical errors that need fixing and I believe the content could be written much better overall.
    I am a writer and proofreader so that feedback comes from my expertise.

    If you want help, let me know.
    There's nothing wrong with your site that can't be fixed to make it rate much higher.

    It looks nice but in terms of SEO - it flat out sucks.

    BTW - It took over 25 seconds to load here on ADSL+ and I was being annoyed by audio set to "auto play"

    So I'll pass.

      7! It has a nice simple design. I'd pick a little darker contrasting color to your white background. To make it pop a bit.

    I would give it a 7. The design is clean and simple which is nice but I see errors. For instance try clicking the Portfolio link. (Image can't be loaded)

    I would also suggest that you lighten up a bit, you ask for feedback and then criticize everyone who doesn't give you positive feedback.

    I also took the time to run your site through YSlow and it scored a 68/100 if you're interested in your sites performance.

      Yeah I was just disappointed with a 1... I feel I put tooooo much hard work to receive that and was suppper bummed...

      As for the linking structure it all got messed up when I added testing pages and that video, at one point the structure was perfect....

      I just got excited because I had just made that video and styled the pretty-photo light-box and wanted to show off my skill, I figured I would get good ratings..

      I didn't think people were going to focus on my SEO and linking, as well as grammar...

      But I guess I should take those into consideration...

      When I meant rate 1-10 I meant rate the design and feel to it....

      Sorry for those whom I lashed out on even though I still disagree that this website is a 1

        Agreed, a 1 is a bit crazy, your site looks polished. I don't even think craigslist deserves a 1

    I'm not sure why you're so obsessed with design. Its nice, but its nothing outstanding. There are plenty of WP themes out there that look almost the same.

    I closed the movie right away, because it was loading too slow, so cant comment on that.

    It makes about 6 for design and about 1 for usability due to slow loading. But the second is not your fault I assume, you just need a better hosting.

      The site loads fast on my computer and on all the other computers I test it on..

      Hmm IDK why it was loading slow on yours?

      And I am obsessed with the design because I am a WEB DESIGNER it's what I do...

      I don't think people understand the amount of work that goes into the design and development....

        Ok I just added that yesterday I thought it would be cool for my clients to see...

        But it appears as a distraction....

        What if I still had the lightbox auto load giving the user the option to press play or exit out?

          There is no doubt your website looks chic and modern. I am ready to become your customer just by visiting your webpage. But there is an improvement I would like to suggest to you.

          Your testimonials are your strongest arguments to convert visitor into customer. They are better placed in front section for more exposure, instead of being left in the end of the page.

          Overall, You website at least deserves 8 of 10 in my opinion.
          Good luck, buddy!

            The testimonials I saw at bottom of page were from the designer and developer. Those from the customer(s) are mid page. Like the layout, so I too would give it 8.

      I will give two ratings.

      One from a user point of view:

      6 - Design is nothing special. Looks like zillion other websites.

      And another from a professional web designer point of view:

      2 - Looks like zillion other websites, which, for a web-designing company, is really bad.

      For a web-designing company, your site simply sucks: not just the design, but the whole site: its full of errors.

      I dont even know where to start, so I will just list the most obvious errors:

      -your "pricing" sounds like you copied it from a hosting company (WTF has the amount of mysql databases to do with web design?? And who the hell ask monthly payments for web-design???)

      -wrong usage of self closing tags

      -buggy drop down menu

      -50% of the links leading to nowhere

      -navigation links leading to nowhere

      -links to your work leading to youtube and adobe (WTF?)

      -total overkill of jquery plugins

      -fake google map (why no real gmap instead of a pixel-ed image?)

      -wrong/empty "mailto" links

      -bad form validation (why not create a simple JS validation?)

      -spelling errors (although my English sucks even more, but thats why I dont write the content )

      There are much more errors, but I dont have the time to list them all.

      For your client´s sake, I hope you do a better job on their websites than you did on yours.

      One more thing: your website loads very very slow. Thats probably related to your hosting, but I would suggest to remove / reduce size of some images. [This is going to be your main issue, besides the facts above, because Google is def. looking at the loading speed when evaluating the SEO value + the bounce rate of visitor dramatically increases on such slow pages as yours. Try to aim for anything under 3-4 seconds.]

      p.s. I know that some of the above points are not really related to the design, but, as a real web developer, you must know that its not just about the design, but about the usability.

    I have to say that I'm really surprised...After reading the first posts I thought this website is crap, but I would give your website a 7 - nice design and well structured. One question left: What is this option thing on the left side? I really don't get it...
