New site for financing company... please review


This is a site that I'm designing for a factoring company. They had very specific requirements and several of the design points are not mine. Please review.

Thanks!

Quite slow to load here on 56k.

Only looked at your homepage. There is a thin yellow strip at the end of your header.

The black text with a red shadow is not very eye-friendly. Maybe widen your navigation column and increase the space around your text - looks a tad constricted. I would also lean towards a sans-serif font. The changing text at the bottom is annoying and doesn't add much (and background doesn't match).

Cheers, Victor

It took 5 seconds to load on my 2.5mbit cable line...
The design is good, but you should use a different image format for faster loading, I haven't had a website load so slowly since I had 56kb.

You may want to change the text color and size from blue to something different and larger also...

As someone already pointed out, the animation of the main page is a bit annoying, try removing it.

Splash pages are such a drag. Especially as the whole site is so slow to load - takes minutes on 28.8.

Site itself is WAY too busy IMO - so many different colors, fonts, BG and letter highlighting. Something like confetti on New Year's eve.

Maybe 20px too big for 800 x 600.

When loading, the text on dark green isn't really visible so looks kind of awkward.

Header and LH column are a little narrow - proportions seem off.

Confusing to have underlining when there's not a link.

Comment about the photo: What kind of subliminal message does it send to have two white guys towering over the black guy? Gives the impression of unequal status IMO.

Animation?? Didn't see that since I have it disabled. That would really push me past my tolerance limit!! This site needs major surgery!!

Get rid of the images, how do you expect to be indexed in a search engine with barely any text?

Were taking the whole site back to the design phase and going to startover. Were keeping the basic format, but nixing some of the links and "clutterness" that appears. I'll have an update by the new year.
Thanks for all the input! Keep it coming!

I was redirected to your second page from your first page before the first page completely loaded.

Redesigned slightly

Ok. I've made some changes to the links at the left and the sizing of the tables. I've still got the issues of speed on the download, but I'm working on those. Can I get some feedback on the new links and sizeing?

Thanks.

The vertical text spacing is too wide now... The navigation bar has become too detailed, this might overwhelm some visitors.
