    Hi guys,
    Just finished a web design for a curtain systems manufacturer.

    It's mainly to reach the wholesaler audience, so not much detail is needed online, hence the simplicity.

    It's using cufon to dynamically switch to the chosen marketing collateral font and it's got a nice image scroller on the gallery page

    Need a site like this? Pm me for a good price ;)

    Looks nice and slick.

    I don't like the text at the top being the same as the bottom text if they are not links.

    Also the gallery was a bit confusing at first as there is no navigation in the gallery.

    Yep, the client agrees with this one. So I'm having to switch it to a thumbnail and popup approach over the easter holidays at the clients request.

    Not too fussed about the slogan and menu confusion though.

    I think the slogan being a lighter colour as per the secondary pages is a good idea.

    It seperates it from being another menu.

    Only the home page has it the same colour as the menu.

    I usually set up info@ and redirect if the client wants to keep their isp email for some crazy reason.

    Some I know just refuse to change.
