    We are a cleaning company based in Edinburgh and offer domestic and commercial cleaning, eco friendly cleaning etc

    I know this is a synthasite/yola freepage thingy but id like a little feedback on the information and layout.

    There is not alot i can do with it as im slightly restricted but iv opted to keep it clean and simple

    Im in the slow process of designing my own website at the moment (slow, as im not even fully aware of what im doing lol, but im getting there)

    anyway, any reviews will be much appreciated....

    Cheers guys....and girls! :)

    Hi Danny

    Firstly; the banner (Ishkey's design) it looks like you have stretched it to fit, I would suggested giving Ishkey the actual dimensions and I'm sure he will oblige by re-sizing for you, even some-one who was unaware they can tell the difference between the banner and the logo at bottom of page.

    It's a very plan and easy to navigate website, I did prefer your original layout (The green gradient headers etc) but as you say your learning and kudos to you.

    Cheers Forest,

    Yeah Im still a newbie lol I will get onto Ish about getting that sorted, Iv been downloading all sorts of free programmes so I will have alook to see if I can possibley re-size it myself.

    The lay-out you prefer? did that have the really big banner at the top? with the dark-ish green going around the banner?

    That's the one.

    Also how long have you been established? A Clients testimonial page could work, so potential clients know who to call for reference's, are you completely commercial based?

    Here is a link to the cleaners website that My company uses (I'm not suggesting you should copy it but there maybe elements you could use?)

    I like the look of there site, really simple and easy to navigate.

    I'v only recently started the business again! (I closed the business a couple of years ago to go back to college but iv decided to get it back up and running). I only had a few small contracts but was told that any time i needed a testimonial/reference i was just to get back to those clients, iv been in touch but nothing back yet lol....

    I do have a testimonials page set-up but just waiting on those former clients getting back to me before I add it to my navigation

    loving the idea...I work as marketing manager and work with websites all the time:) The one thing I would suggest is to change the font colour on the hopemage from green to black as the left hand site column (in green too) doesn't stand out which I think is important..I 've just now realised that you can't click o those 'All our chemicals are'...maybe it would be good to be able to click on them and add a little bit more info on what it is 'bleach free', 'environmentally friendly', 'internationally approved', etc....people looks for what's behind the statements and it's good to have the links on the site:)

    Also I think the green in the banner is a bit too dark...to me something eco and 'environmental' should be light green or combination of white and green as you want to portray freshness, friendliness, something 'springey', 'summerey'...if you know what I mean:)

    But overall it's quite delightful, well done!!:)

    Thanks Beatrice,

    I will be sure to take your points on board and have a look at ways to make certain parts of the page stick out a bit more.

    Cheers to everyone for the reviews!

    The point about the graphic at the top is a good one, try to get it resized so it does not look stretched.

    From a personal point of view I would like to see a way of contacting you on each page so you don't then have to click through to the contact page and then have to fill a form in.

    A email link on each page works best for me, I hate filling in contact forms and if I can't find an easier way to make contact with somebody I will.

    Good luck with it.

    I think the site is very aesthetically pleasing.
    Not only that but its simple and extremely user -friendly which is always nice. I don't see one major flaw at first glace.

    Overall good job - B+

    i like this, because its clean and simple not to fussy, links are easy to use, but must agree with the earlier post, that the banner, logo does look stretched and loses the cutting edge of the design.

    A good site, informative and easy to navigate. The banner looks OK to me

    Site looks really nice, professional and well-made. Although, a bit too much green for my eyes. I look at this site and I feel confident enough that this site will provide exactly what it advertised, good job.

    I don't see anything that could be done to make it better apart from the color, but that's just one guy's opinion.

    I give this a strong 9/10! :) Good Luck!

    I agree with what everyone has said. The logo needs unstetching. Other than that, the website looks great. I, like frost, am not a big fan of the green you used. Its just doesnt put off a "clean" vibe, which you need for a cleaning business. Why not a light blue? I think that would go well. But looking at your logo it does have a leaf, so that makes sense.

    Also, on the side where you say "All our .... are" , I would change it to "All of our ....are", it's just easier to read and I think is more grammatically correct.

    Overall, nice site though

    I think the green font is overkill. The banner is colorful enough. I noticed you have to click back a lot to get to different sections, and that's annoying. For example, I clicked Domestic Cleaning and then to get to Office Cleaning I had to go back to the main menu first. Perhaps keep some kind of static menu on the side? Also, there's too much spacing between paragraphs.

    Try "Photo Pos Pro"
    Free Photo Editor and Free Image Editor (Free Photo Editing Software and Free Image Editing Software)
    it is very good for "freeware"
    What HTML Editor do you use
    hope this helps

    Hi Daniel Airlie,
    nice site, but I will agree with some comments about lighter green color, also I am not sure but pic on welcome look like rendered one, not like real photo.
