We have a new website! Checkout www.integralighting.com and see what we have been up to.

For you Apple people, we still have a couple of graphics to move over to java from flash, but the rest of the site should view fine.

Let me know if you find any bugs, typos, etc.

Thanks.

Perhaps I should have said: For those of you who use Apple products...

No hard feelings? :)

Yeah what do you mean "you people".

Looks good on my mobile phone. Did you get rid of the intro? Or does my phone bypass it

James,

I like the navigation, and the logo with the constellation is very cool. The major problem I have is with the white text on the black sky - the white text on the blue sky is a little better - but both are very tiring in the eyes.

I would consider placing this text in a semi-transparent container. Your designer can use a white .png image (with a nice border) and with enough transparency to let the stars come through, but light enough so you can use black or dark blue text. This is a beautiful effect - floating frames.

I also suggest reducing the height of the header region - it get's tiresome scrolling on every page.

You also might break up the text, using bullets and sub-headers so people can skim through quickly, getting the gist, without having to read every word.

Not sure what this means James, the tab on my computer shows it as Integra Bespooke Lighting. May want to fix that.

Yes we got rid of the "landing page" It was time for a change.

Thanks for this one Bob, I will have the header tab changed ASAP

Thanks for the input an tips Steve. I will see what we can do about the font size and colour to make it a easier on the eyes and to break up the larger text blocks.

James- website looks awesome and clearly looks like you are the premier lighting company to any perspective client. I only have 2 things I would change, and that is over in the gallery section. when you click on a single photo group and then want to go through all the photos, you have to move your mouse each time to get the arrow to appear. I'd have the arrow just come up to show you can move to the next picture.

the 2nd thing is probably way too time consuming, but your text on each photo is the same for each photo group. each picture is beautiful, and a quick note on each of what you did and why would add a lot of info and lighting insight to the gallery.

great photos and a great web site james.

Thanks for the input and positive critique David. I appreciate your comments and will be tweaking the site over time to make it better.
