Ok, I know some may not enjoy the use of Flash here, but my client has thrown many examples that use it. He really wanted this site to be animated, and I thought Flash would suit. Let me know what you think about color usage, layout, browser bugs, useability, and whatever else. Thanks in advance:

edit: Oh yeah, the content is not in place just yet. For now I am using the same stuff the home page has.

And this thread seemed so abandoned I just had to jot something down...

Overall impression, I like it, it looks professional and the design and colors go well with the area of expertize of the company.

I'm not that fond of the amount of flashing and moving as I don't really see how it adds to the purpose of the page, but as you said, it's a clients choice.

One thing you should look at though is the navigation.
With a crisp and sharp feel of the site in general, the text (esp the small) on the navigation seems blurred. Then the effect of the mouseovers is a bit harsh on the contrast, try toning that down a bit.
One more on the nav, what happens with a non-flash user? Can he navigate the site at all?

Other than that, not much to comment on, nice work.

Thanks DmS...I just about gave up on any critiques going through here.

I see what you mean about the blurred text, I will definitely sharpen that up and tone down the mouseovers.

As far as users not having Flash, I just have an image map set-up for that.

Just one thing you might want to implement: it might be nice to have the current page highlighted in the menu, and you might also want to make it so that the user can't click on the current page (just one of my pet peeves).

well dunn

I like the use of flash here.. not over-used as it is most of the time. A little too much flashy-distracty-movement in the top after the initial animation in my opinion, but it looks professional and clean

I don't know if it's been changed since the last post, but I think the flash at the top, as it is now, is cool. It could have a little less time in between the text messages, so I'm not sitting here waiting as long for it to finish, but that's minor.
