Pretty nice but not sure if I'm feeling the active state for the main navs - flicker bugs me. Nice job though.

They have a very impressive portfolio and I like the footer.

My only problem is with the tabs. I always wonder about why people use more natural navigation themes like tabs, but then remove or otherwise pervert the way a tab works.

On this site, for example, the hover state pulls the tab up, but keeps the text in it's original position which is disconcerting to say the least and results in really unattractive spacing around the text.

Also, like DRoss mentioned, the :focus effect is a bit off too.

Thame - I disagree. The tabs would be tough to read if the words moved or changed on hover.

Love the site, so clean, professional, navigable, and informative. Nice ecommerce work too.

Kind of reminds me of http://www.mediatemple.net though nowhere near as slick.

It looks like a combo of Media Temple tabs and 31three sidebar and footers - either way it is dull and unoriginal.

The site is cool but I agree it looks like a combo of Media Template a few other sites. It would be cool to see something original and different. Perhaps they can do something different with the navigation!

I agree with Emily. The site is clean and profession as well as organized and standards-compliant. As far as design is concerned, the question should not be originality, rather, effectiveness. Just because the tabs they use are not original doesn't make them bad. They are effective and attractive, and what more could anyone ask for?

Abinadi actually part of effectiveness for a design is originality and functionality. Thame has a wonderful point about the effectiveness of the design is disconcerting to say the least and results in really unattractive spacing around the text. If the users cannot navigate than your job of having an effective "clean" design has fallen short. Personally, the work is great but the site has elements that can be improved upon.

I like the colors but that is about it.

I'd never come accross this site before. The portfolio is very impressive and the overall feel of the site is very nice and considered. A job well done.
