    very clean. one thing i noticed on the nav bar, when you scroll over any button other than home the home button still stays red, might want to change it so it changes back to black. and align the text on the nav bar better (center each one). Also the design in back on the testimonials im not crazy about.. feels like its too much. other than that I like it. it looks clean and professional.

      I agree with the nav bar spacing between the line seperator and the text. should be equal for all buttons. Other than that has a very good corporate feel.

    I like how clean and professional the site is.

    I do have a few things to add though...

    You homepage states your mission in small text towards the bottom right:
    "We do this by providing a wide-range of recording & digital data management systems"

    This might be just fine if your main traffic comes from people who know exactly what services they are clicking on before they arrive on the site...and maybe thats the case for you. However, As a new person to the site it did take me a moment to figure out what the goal of the site was.

    The site is OK, but not that good.
    First things first: Transcription Solutions | Courtroom Interview Digital Recording

    Remove those "linkings"
    rename the default one to index.html and only redirect the selected text to Transcription Solutions | Courtroom Interview Digital Recording

    Or just edit the .htaccess - much better for the database, if theres a database.

    Also you should change the Social Media icons from red - > original one.

    Hi there, I've just been and looked at your home page and it is very good. The only major critisism I have, is that you don't tell (me?) what you do! Surely something on your main header graphic telling us what you're about would be an idea?
    Just my thoughts. :-)
    Hope this helps.

    Very clean and professional looking site. I noticed under Interview Recording, you have a product called iRecord. If you click the icon you are taken directly to the manufacturers site. As a reseller, you want visitors to buy products through your company and not be directed elsewhere. Maybe redirecting to a page with more info but not the seller's home page.

    Your design is clean...but I am not sure what you do. Can you add a tagline that says what you are offering? As a viewer, I want to be clear on what you are offering me and compelled to look around your site. You have "Digital Video" on your page title. You might consider having a small video that plays on the homepage to describe what you do and why I should use your website or your services.

    Too many keywords although with Google i dont think it matters much may be issue with Bing Yahoo.
    and depending on tool you use to check title tag meta description ect if you use this one : Meta Tag Analyzer comes up couple of poor results, or this one :SEO Tool for Search Engine Optimization Analysis - SEO Workers seems slight issue.
    don't know what one is best to trust if any.

    I like it. It is creative and the colors look nice. Although the pictures all fit very well. great site. great use of color and design. I think most people have covered it up to here, but personally I think the nomination at the bottom really screws everything up. If there is somehow you can fit that into your basic site layout/design.

    Wow, one of the best web design I've seen so far today. Very professional, it's a business/corporate presentable website. My only critique is the copy of your site, at first glance I may not know about what your site or company is about. So a sub headline in your banner might help that.

    Well done, keep up the great work.

    • Profile picture of the author MattSabia
      Over all I it's very good, but there are some small suggestions I have.

      The social icons in the top left are nice, but I would change them back to the original colors even though they may not fit into your color sceme. The reason is for attracting people to them. Visitors will be used to seeing the original logo colors and may not even notice them. They can also be a bit larger. I'm very glad to see that you're taking advantage of Google+ too.

      Another thing you may want to consider is spreading out the content over the homepage. It's very compressed towards the top of the screen, which in some cases is a good thing and keeps attention on small items but I think you can use more room. Maybe try adding a portfolio slider in the center and use the second half of the page as it is now as a footer.

      Hope this helps!

    The design is great but outdated and to be honest it's not like a digital video / audio recording website to me. Please please don't get offended, I've been browsing top designed websites all the time.

    Try it to be fixed-width, strengthen your site colors, don't put the social buttons on the top left, my eye is drawn to that part instead of your logo. If you are allowed to change the colors, go with blue scheme. If not, just make it more on red / white / gray combination. Colors is very important when creating a website.

    To get the right design for you, here's a little suggestion. Create a draft in paper for the layout, check other websites to get an idea. Bring it to your friends, family members ask for suggestions, this is the best way. I always ask friend or family member to get their opinion and apply their suggestions.

    Check awwwards[dot]com and there you will find great ideas as well as use google to search for "best corporate css websites".

    Your site looks very nice.

    However there is a huge difference between sites that look great,
    and sites that have the phones ringing.

    The purpose of the site, contrary to popular thinking, is not to serve
    as a brochure for your company.

    It is to capture leads and/or make sales.

    And that process starts with determining your value propositions, and
    producing copy centered around that value proposition.

    From the moment I land on your site, as an ideal customer, I should be
    seeing - not only WHY I should be doing business with you - but why I
    should make the decision to either do business now, or contact you for
    further information.

    Anyway, the site looks good, the layout is solid, and is a good foundation
    but now it needs some marketing love - and then the changes themselves
    need to be to be tested against the next round of updates - constantly.

    That's the difference between a attractive website, and a successful website:
    testing.

    Later

    Good luck!!

    I like the clean layout of the website, however, I could not easily figure out what your business actually does and how it could help me. You only have a few seconds to make a first impression, so it's important that your visitors find out exactly what you can do for them.

    Credibility is also important online, so including testimonials, memberships to associations, media articles etc are important.
