So you are a webdesign company and you are asking us how to make your site look better? That's a bit of a worry.

We're gunna have lots more traffic than usual soon and i want the site to look nice. The colour concept that there atm has only been there a couple of weeks and it's not very well populated yet. I was wondering if you lot as independent visitors have any opinions on the colour scheme, or the sites content.

Yeah being off center doesn't look good. Center it up or reduce the colspan of the right side. Or put some thing in the far right column.

Im gunna put some inline images in the content boxes themselves and center up the site. Cheers guys.

Any other ideas?

I've got rid of the side lined image and am working on some new in-line ones. I've also centered the page. Anyone have any more suggestions?
