    For a web-design portfolio page it's very text-heavy. You want to WOW your visitors, not educate them. Show examples of what you've done on the front page and use big, flashy images to draw them deeper in (don't use flash, though, that's just tacky ). Also, the fact that the fire is cut off at the top looks really bad; maybe you can have it hover over the menu? Beyond that it looks great. Simplistic and stylish with a brilliant logo (I really liked it).

    I think it looks great. Love the dark colours and the flame.

    Even though Flames are very late 90's, I think the site works well, less is more in this case. However with your portfolio page I've noticed you need to scroll down to view each image. What about using smaller thumbnails and maybe a lightbox to display the information with a larger screen shot?

    Everything seems to work just right. The titles, blog, look and feel.

    Good luck with the site and the business.

    Over all it looks good. But my personal thinking is, the header is wasting lot of space. you should put the contact phone number somewhere in the header also. The web design services and blog texts are way too bold. use some profesional fonts.
    Why are you showing laptop image under portfolio , it should be your best work till date.Also the font in footer needs to be changed.

    thats all but i like the colors and layout..great job

    Mostly I really liked it - a nice clean design But I do have some comments:

    Homepage is too long. It fits nicely in the chrome browser for me, but I need to scroll in FF (I do have a lot of toolbars though)

    The laptop image isn't doing anything for you - perhaps a thumbnaill of your best design could go here? Make it clear what your "call to action" is.

    Pre-load the email address box (for the newsletter) with some text like "Your email address" to make it clear what's required here.

    Link the AKA logo to your homepage

    Nice to see a site that validates though That's a rare thing to see!

    It's not bad, clean design, but sort of looks like a template site redesigned?
