My current website was completely redone 6-18 months ago (yes it took that long to get it up), by a web design student as I had very limited funds. A graphic designer associate gave us a general guideline for style, then the web design student put it online for me. Initially the site didn`t operate in all browsers, but I found someone to repair that functionality. I have since discovered that frames aren`t friendly to search engines, so I`m looking to have it remade without the frames.The site fix it guy will redo the same design without the frames, but since this is going to cost me money anyway, I`d like to have the site redesigned to fix as many flaws as possible, so I don`t need to worry about it again for a while.
I`d appreciate any feedback on the site that springs to mind, but primarily the design, layout and content. I`m looking to enter a Corporate Image competition in a couple of months, and the website will form part of the judging, so I`d really like to get it looking fantastic.
It`s primary purpose is as an online portfolio/sales tool. Our customers can see what we offer, and we can guide telephone customers to particular designs when they call to make enquiries. We are primarily a balloon decorator, and secondary a party supply store. Our corporate colours are blue, purple and silver. We are aiming to distinguish ourselves as talented balloon decorators, with a unique design capability and offering great service. We are not after the lowest price shoppers.
I`d appreciate any feedback or comments (good or bad - I have very thick skin) on the website. Also, if you know of any website designers that have done several florist or event planning sites that may be suitable for meeting my needs in redesigning the site, I`d love to hear from you.
Thanks in advance!!!
