IRONWORKS Critique continues...
Then because I'm doing a review (and only beacause of this, otherwise I'd just leave and never come back) I used IE5 and got a totally different view.
The first thing you should consider it the impact of having your business site
on hypermart with their advertising banners. Your image on the home page is nice
and that advertising really detracts from your whole site. It also suggests that
your business isn't doing well enough to afford a real hosting service. For a great
deal on domain names see footnote below.
|The Gallery: One more suggestion, the text below your
image map is difficult to read with the large drop shadow behind it.
I would pick a more legible font for the labels.
|__ I almost forgot, there is another item to look at. The
navigation on the right. Here is picture of it when I clicked on one of the choices.
__ I don't know what those boxes with the dots are, it looks like it is supposed to be bullets but they look rather strange. The text butted right up against them also make it difficult to read.
__ You have an excellant start here, please let us know when it is complete, I know I'd love to see some your work.
You're exactly right, Joyce. When we arrived on this site the Hypermart persona was ever present. each new page that loaded got a new banner... usually animated and blinkind furiously.
__ We have an ironworks client too. I know that just one piece of this work carries a heafty price tag, a percentage of which could easily pay for a year's hosting in advance.
RE: Easy Hosting is one of the best sites we've found for domain registration. Much better than Network Solutions
