Default Review site, almost ready to go live

Hi everyone.

I am slowly getting there to finish my site. I have had a few x-cart sites but they have all been very plan and simple.

I have gone a bit more custom this time and want to get opinions on it

I have the Reboot template with a few tweaks.

I have concentrated mostly on the static pages for now, online store is coming up next once the pages are finished.

Any advice and constructive comments would be appreciated.

Current Notes I have to work on,
* Menu Icons need to be replaced with product images
* Image sizes in the site are too large and need to be resized to increase load time of site
* Online store product formatting not yet correct, need to sort this out
*

You can make your large header image responsive / stretch full width on large screens, by changing the CSS in skin/reboot/css/reboot.css ...

.header-logo { max-width: 100%; height: auto; }

to...

.header-logo { width: 100%; max-width: 100%; height: auto; }

The banner images are bit heavy (each image is about 0.5M). You may try to convert them to jpg's and store with a lower quality so that the banner loads faster.

I'd change the text:
"Pure Image are your business branding experts." to either "Pure Image are your business branding experts." or "The great folks at Pure Image are your business branding experts."

The site is nice. It is a bit gimmicky, I think the menu animations and the slide animations (the extra buttons popping on) both detract from the professional image. And i think the header image background is way too busy and competes with the logo.

Look, great design can be understated: http://www.astonmartin.com/

Simple, Clean, Less is more, Minimalist design has the best impact.

Just my two cents,
-Mike
