    My new website just went live. The 'Interior lighting' aspect is going to be removed, but other than that I would love feed back.

    Nice site! Testimonials really tell you story well.

    Great as always Tommy... you are a pro.

    My only suggestion is I would change your logo. To me, graffiti font does not go with high end homes, high end clients, nor your image of high end Geek.

    Your clients are established professionals with suburban mansions. Your products, design and results are so professional and promote beauty of nature and landscape. Personally I think you could have a font that encompasses those aspects better. Maybe its just me, but when I see graffiti font I am thinking of almost the exact opposite audience (urban, edgy, modern, hip hop).

    You've got a great image and have marketed yourself well ... so what do I know :)

    ...plus I'd add the pic of the female statue to the home page-- awesome down lighting on it and encompasses the art side. Plus I remember the story of the client crying with joy when they first saw it lit up like that (add that testimonial/story).

    Overall, very nice. Of course, there's always room for improvement. Here's some comments and suggestions (I'm a web design and SEO geek!)

    1. Where's the videos? I'm sure the networks would allow you to post clips from your many appearances. You could have a video preview on your home page, another page to display all your clips, and a link to your YouTube page (if you have one). In fact you could put a relevent video clip on every page. People love videos!

    2. Throughout the site you have a large image in the left column that looks like it's washed out. That technique works if you use an image as a background, but when it's on it's own it looks like a bad photo. I suggest displaying it properly and maybe giving it a nice narrow frame (1 px green border).

    3. You need to make a bigger deal about your celebrity status. Maybe put a graphic next to your logo with text like "Featured Lighting Expert on DIY Network" and a link to your best video. You could even put some TV reference under your tagline in the big slide show on the home page.
