I didn`t pursue the site much because I couldn`t read what seemed
important. But from what I did see, I`d like to maybe move the name and

than the chevrons or logos look kind of cool. But they serve no useful
purpose that I can see.
It`s an interesting idea having the portraits along the side. Maybe
they could be a bit smaller, since they seem to over-crowd the actual

Instead, it should be the main focus of the site.
