    Nice graphics. I looked at the services you offered but you don't seem to have any web sites that you have done on your portfolio.

    Inspiring design, great job.

    Your code could be cleaner. You CSS could be more efficient.

    Ex:
    Code:
    A.elink:link {
    
    	FONT-SIZE: 100%;
    
    	COLOR: #194487;
    
    	FONT-FAMILY: Verdana, Tahoma, Arial, ms sans serif;
    
    	TEXT-DECORATION: underline;
    
    }
    
    A.elink:visited {
    
    	COLOR: #BBBDD0;
    
    	FONT-FAMILY: Verdana, Tahoma, Arial, ms sans serif;
    
    	TEXT-DECORATION: underline;
    
    }
    
    A.elink:active {
    
    	COLOR: #0000cc;
    
    	FONT-FAMILY:  Verdana, Tahoma, Arial, ms sans serif; 
    
    	TEXT-DECORATION: underline;
    
    }
    
    A.elink:hover {
    
    	COLOR: #0000cc; 
    
    	FONT-FAMILY:  Verdana, Tahoma, Arial, ms sans serif; 
    
    	TEXT-DECORATION: underline;
    
    }
    Could be written as

    Code:
    A.elink 
    {
    	font-family: Verdana, Tahoma, Arial, ms sans serif;
    	text-decoration: underline;
    	font-size: 100%
    	color:#194487;
    }
    
    
    A.elink:active, A.elink:hover {color: #0000cc;}
    
    A.elink:visited {color: #bbbdd0;}
    And for offering web design having a DocType and validating code would benefit you.

    Accessibility could be greatly improved by adding a jump to content link hidden with your code and being able to increase font-size (using ems for example). Firefox can manually override text settings but IE doesn't.

    Usability may be improved by providing a sitemap (usually located at the bottom of the page) and you ought to consider having a Terms of Use Agreement and a Privacy Policy.

    Your top left graphic that should point to the home page has an incorrect link that looks like http://www.graformix.com/www.graformix.com rather than just the first part

    A little slow to load on my computer, but graphically looks very good and I guess that is the service you are looking at selling too. Very nice.

    Your links up top are portruding out into the boundary. This could be a matter of opinion but I think that once you mouseout of the portfolio that your options should not be seen as they are in the picture. Also your copyright is running into your logo button.

    Resolution 1280x800
    Firefox 2.0.0.6
    Windows XP sp 2

    Most of my questions/posts are fairly straightforward and simple. I post long verbose messages in an attempt to be thorough.

    In the bottom picture on the services page, is it meant to say MyBuisiness.com?
