Very nice site but where is the shop? All I can see is half a dozen pages telling me what you do but there is no sign of what you are selling! Perhaps I am missing something?

Yeah, I did not add the shop portion as of yet. I wanted to see if I could design a shop or 2 without the shop. I do have a shop that is not live but yet listed at live which I have to change at Not live shop It is also located in the second link under the our work area.

I feel rather rude making comments like this, but they're not intended to be - I hope they're constructive . . . specifically the car site;

 

The design is actually a little dated - there's not much fundamentally wrong with it as a website, but it doesn't follow the 'current' webdesign trends.

 

If you wanted a couple of suggestions to bring it a little more up to date;

 

- Pick a single font, use it for everything. Preferably a sans serif font. Serifed fonts like the one you're using for text are not as legible on a screen as something simple like Ariel. Either way, don't mix the two!

- Use css links, rather than the java menu thing. Unfortunately that kind of menu is kinda past its sell by date.

- Maybe make the important stuff a little more obvious - the 'have a question' thing is probably the most important point you're making. Make it a bit bigger, and brighter - it's the least visible element on the page!

- Likewise, keep the graphics simple. That car with the reflection would look really great on the white background without the gradient around it. The certification logo has also been improperly resized and look a little ragged.

 

Phew . . . I really ripped that apart. Even so, it's not bad at all - you have avoided going nuts on it and overloading visitors with info, which is a common problem. The minus points are really just aesthetic.

 

Hope this helps! These are a couple of examples of more up to date designs:

Thanks for the response. I do appreciate it. I was looking for a css menu but was not able to find one that worked correctly in the contribution area.

I have made the Have a Question bigger and a different font.

I am going to work on the car, but thought I would add color instead of having just a white header.

 

When you talked about the fonts, where you speaking of a particular page or all of them. I know that they are different on the contact us. The headers are meant to be alittle different.

I will definitely think about a color change.

 

I do have 2 more if you would like to look at them.
