Hi Scott :-)
I use FireFox 1.x, partly because I also use Win98, and partly because
I haven`t yet got around to upgrading to 2.x. I can`t use 3.x because
it only works on XP and so on.
In FF 1x, everything is in a single column going down. In IE 6.x, it
looks the way you intended. I`m not sure what the various market shares
are, but thought I`d at least mention the need for a newer browser.
Everyone has their own philosophy on how far back to go for
What bothers me, looking at the site properly, is that it isn`t easy to
get your sales pitch. Everything looks very nice, but there isn`t an
immediate sense of "here`s what we do, and here`s how it`ll improve
your life." It`s that part about improving my life that matters---the
offer, and "what`s in it for me."
One example is under your Specialty Markets Served, you`ve got a sort
of brownish font over a gray background, and that makes it low
contrast, hard to read. Then, when I hover over each link they turn
maroon and disappear. That`s not elegant, particularly for a graphics
design company, right?
On the portfolio, I`m with Webline....what a cool concept!! Very Awesome!
Looking through the portfolio, I`m pondering some of the main topics
and questions we have, here on SuN regarding graphics design. People
want logos, flyers, Web page and site layouts, and business cards.
In the corporate world, there`s the need for across-the-board graphics.
Could you offer two "customer journeys," one for large corporations,
the other for small business owners? Again, the key would be "here`s
what`s in it for YOU!" both visually, and in text.
Right now you`re leading off with:
"Bold Print Design Studio has improved the branding & marketing of clients across many various industries."
So? It`s so "blah," if you see what I mean. How have you improved these
things? Could you do a "before-after" kind of comparison for visuals?
(Also, "many various industries" is redundant.)
What I`m thinking is that you could brainstorm some sort of tag-line as
part of your new marketing strategy and plan. Develop a "theme" for
that marketing, then build on it across all of your site pages. What`s
the 1 main thing you want to sell?
