Please serf through our website and find more interesting things about our group...... Thanks.


I think you mean "surf", not "serf": but from a marketing perspective, if your introductory text hasn't convinced your visitors to go explore your site, begging them to do so isn't going to help.

On the home page, you need some margin between the left and middle columns (i'm on FF3.0.7 on a Mac). And there's too much stuff moving.

The home page has a lot of placeholders for ads; if you're planning to make money on ads you need a lot of great content. But if you're planning to make money on services (web design & development), your might get better value for your pixels presenting your skills instead of ads (ads will send freelance business to your competitors).

interest, never heard about it.

Animation imprest. Good work i think. You need add some content in main page, thats all. :wink:

thanks!
SWISHMAX is a FLASH alternative tool. Used by most of the PRO flash users to create flash project too quickly! its mostly like PowerPoint and FLash mix. :D

You could stand to lose a few of the animated pieces IMHO. So much movement in various places is very distracting. I looked at your page for 30 seconds or so, and I'm not sure I read a single word. I felt like a cat watching a fly the way my eyes were pulled around by all the animations. Mastering animation is good. Mastering nice graphics is great. Using too many of either is bad, but using too many of both is a headache for the user.

Way too flashy. And SWiSHMax is not used by "most of the PRO flash users." Several translation errors, need some padding inside those boxes, wish we could visit the sites that you've made instead of just pictures. Not a professional site for a company that claims to produce professional sites imho.

And don't think I'm being mean, I tend to criticize and whatever I don't criticize means I like it. :)

Love the 3D modeling you've done.

I would say that there are too much going on there (Referring to those moving SWISHMAX 2 apps). I don't know what it is, but I don't really like the design, although most of your 3D work you've done are pretty good... maybe make some 3D Logo for your site? Kind of put together the design and 3D part together on your site portfolio?

W3 Validator found 28 errors on your main page. I suggest that you fix them on all of the pages, before you carry on with the rest of your updating.

What does 'SAN' mean? I couldn't find the definition for that anywhere... care to put that somewhere? Maybe it's just something in your language or something, I don't know... just wondering.

I think it's the black on white with the chrome(?) border that makes me kind of dislike the design... kind of looks old if you know what I mean. It's simple and fast though, and that's good.

That's about it for now... might return with another review :)

There is too much movement going on in your website. Maybe you can lessen that. Also, your logo looks pixelated. I like your header though. I hope this helps

That's much better :)

Some of the things I find something to suggest on:

The links at the top right... the contrast that hover produces (From white to black) isn't so good... that black also doesn't sit well with the rest of the background in that portion of the site.

The search at bottom left. Maybe instead of 'Find it' you could have an image... maybe a popular magnifying glass would do.

About the contact page... I have several suggestions. Maybe have a contact form... that is sometimes easier for people with slow connections (I'm referring to the fact that they have to wait to log in to their own email client to be able to email you).

I would also suggest you put your email as an image and name that image that doesn't relate to email... to help protect against spam.

Your website is just fine and from what I have read, you have already redesigned it and follow the member's suggestions. But what bothers me is the header of the site. Is it only just me or others, but when I look at the header, it kinda strain my eyes. Maybe because of the blurry design of it.
