What do you think?

Cheers,

In IE, there is a white space under the text but in Firefox, it it ok. Anyway, the layout looks good but I think the blue is just a bit dark. Did you use a template, by any chance? I think I have seen the icons before.

Spelling error: customization* (Text on home page)

The text is a bit dark, I had to highlight it to be able to read it.

I WOULDN'T CAPITALIZE MY WHOLE PAGE TITLE! - But that's just me =]

I'm unable to copy and paste your e-mail address.

That's it, I like the design..... I agree with the person who said lighter blue.
that would also aid in the readability of the dark gray text.


It's just that, with the header the way it is. The pictures there is no branding going on. I could take that site and put a different name on it, and no one would know the difference. You should think about integrating IFlint into the pictures, and more into the site, and make it more you.
It feels very template-ish

Hey cheers for the advice Dorito, I will look into making it more personalized and not so template like, although most of you are saying to make it a lighter blue i kinda like the shade of blue atm but will change the text colour see if that helps.

Cheers,

Hey guys i was just making some changes to my site and where i put a tag in that causes a line break it seems to break up my DIVS and leaves white space between them.
Do any of you know why this is happening and if so how to resolve this?
I have left an example of this on my site using the <hr /> tag, it is on the contact us page

Cheers,

Tommyflint

Well I don't like that blur around the edges, it looks like a cheap photoshop effect to me. But I like the idea, it is a good start. I also see the white gap in FF3. And from a quick look at the source, don't use inline styles in you HTML tags. Put it all into a style sheet (or between the style tags). This will make it easier to change and maintain later on.

○I like the new shade of text, although! (there always has to be a conjunction cause there is always room for improvement! :D )
The new shade is kind of, peachy. It's the only thing on the page with that color and font. It works because it's at the bottom
where you usually put the contact us, terms of service about us and various general links. So it goes with the flow of most
websites.
Do you plan to update all of the other pages with that same text?

○I like the new and improved title. I no longer feel like it's yelling at me. haha It also fit's in perfectly. IFLINT is capitalized just
like in your header and website and design is smaller, just like in your header.

○There's a problem with the div's allignment in FF3. I won't go into detail it's already been noted.

Nit picks feel free to ignore them.
○On the gradient at the edge of the blue, the top left, bottom left, bottom right, are all rounded, the top right is boxed.

○On the the home page there are lines above and below the icons, all other pages don't have these and it changes the height of the icons.
