    It depends of what "well designed" means for you. In my opinion, this design is nice and well created. Have a modern look, is created on a 960px grid system and has a professional appearance , so yes. In my opinion is well designed.

    Your site is really looking good. Navigation is also user-friendly. I think no need to change your design.

    hmm, sounds like a trick question ... haha
    as you guys obviously know what you are doing !!

    Question: are you using a WordPress with some funky theme,
    or did you actually code all that site by yourself?

    This is just my personal opinion, but I would chance the tone of your copy.
    Let me explain: many companies want to sound very "businesslike"
    ... "we are this and that" ... which makes them very impersonal.
    Depending who your target customer is, you might want to tone down
    the "technology" speak a bit and talk to your prospect (I assume he/she is a newbie)
    in his/her language, not yours. In this perspective, you should focus on "benefits",
    not "features": that you can write ASP, MVC, WPF (whatever that means) all sound
    like Chinese to a non-Chinese-speaker.
    Too much focus on MS-ware to my taste, but that's just a personal taste.

    So, you may be great engineers, but on your site you need to be great marketers
    (of your engineering skills). The trick is to identify what your prospect want,
    and show them that you can deliver. Don't tell them you can do ASP,
    show instead working LIVE examples of your work.
    "talk" less, "show" more... I hope you see the difference
    Anyway, just my opinion. Marketing is another set of skills,
    but it's great to have... actually, it's an absolute MUST to be successful
    I hope this comment helps ;)


    PS. On your Technology page, more than half of the technologies
    you list as "Microsoft technologies" have nothing to do with MS,
    some like java, android, iphone are in fact direct MS competitors...

    Well, for my taste, logo and navigation are to far away, text in slider isn't readable enough, especially white one
    And I would remove text-shadow on who we are, what we do and make reduce color brightnes to get some more contrast.

    I see no issue with the design. It looks modern, and there are no immediately visible errors.

    The layout is another issue. The layout looks great for somebody who is familiar with the site. When I fist visited the site I thought the design was impressive, things were most clear and not difficult to see, but... The only issue I have with the site is the fact that I have no idea what you do.

    This site only needs one change, and that is displaying it's purpose in black and white. There should be obvious methods of navigation for how to begin wit this company. What are your plans or agreements, and how do people get with one.

    Looks good, but there are some errors related to HTML & CSS, resolve those errors and your website will crawl speedy in search engines.

    The website is quite good.
    Not sure why, but I am not liking the colour of the header. But still very nice design.

    1) lose the fixed width space wasting banner slideshow rubbish -- it's forcing you to have the entire layout as fixed width, suck down bandwidth for no good reason, and blows a ton of space that prevents people from getting to the actual meat of the page.

    2) open it up as semi-fluid with responsive layout.

    3) Drag the code into THIS century, or at least the last decade. You're proudly proclaiming on the first line of code that the page is in transition from 1997 to 1998 coding practices; tranny is for supporting old/outdated sitebuilding techniques, NOT for building any page written after the turn of the century...

    4) get rid of the endless pointless javascript for nothing -- since there's NOTHING on that page that even warrants it's presence -- unless you really have your heart set on the animated rubbish that has no business on a website in the first place -- or at the very least is in this decade CSS3's job.

    5) ease up on the use of DIV, lose the tables for layout, and give this thing called "semantic markup" a try.

    If you don't know what's wrong with this:
    
         <div class="mid_boxbg">
    
             <div class="mid_boxmid">
    
                 <div class="mid_boxtop">
    
                   <div class="mid_boxbottom">
    
                      <div class="contbox_bg">
    
                      <div class="boxmid_contener">                       
    
                            <div class="box_subtext">
    
                            <table class="blog" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <tr>
    	<td valign="top">
    				</td>
    </tr>
    
    
    </table>
                    
    
                            		<div class="module">
    			<div>
    				<div>
    					<div>
    													<div class="titleModule">Who We Are ?</div>
    											<p style="text-align: justify;">
    Code (markup):
    ... back away from the keyboard and find someone who does know what's wrong with it.

    6) switch to dynamic fonts, this of course means with the semi-fluid width that things like the "3 across equal size boxes" are not viable for web deployment; that section (which the above code is from) falls squarely into the category of "But I can do it in photoshop" asshattery -- and is just another of those things that has no business on a website.

    7) likewise, adjust the color contrasts to be LEGIBLE. You combine the absurdly undersized fixed metric (14px calibri, which is roughly the same as 12px in any other face) fonts with light grey on white, and people like me aren't just diving for the zoom (which then makes the page not fit the display thanks to the crappy fixed width) they're also grabbing accesssibility user.css to override your colors -- at which point it's much more likely they're just a bounce. Your color contrast between background and foreground is only 44%, when accessibility guidelines recommend at least 50%, and 70% or more is preferred. (You have #8D8D8D when #7F7F7F should be considered minimum, and I'd be using #666666). Same goes for the black on blue of the menu, which is far, far worse, and likely invisible to 30% or more of the population, and illegible to half.

    Though I always laugh when I see an alleged web development company having inaccessible train wreck sites like this -- especially when they list things like "web 3.0" (no such thing!) and list fat bloated idiotic rubbish like Dreamweaver amongst their tools... because, well... sick market speak buzzwords and crutches usually do end up in sites like this one -- which are certainly very pretty, but ultimately useless.

    NOT that I expect proper markup or accessibility out of a Joomla template, much like turdpress you have to basically gut the codebase to even come close to anything 'useful' or even 'professional' if you care about accessibility, search, or conversions. Otherwise you just end up with a laundry list of "how not to build a website". The 21k of markup for 1.4k of plaintext and half dozen content images being a sure sign of that -- much less the 40 validation errors meaning you don't even have HTML, you have gibberish... much less the total lack of images off graceful degradation, css off graceful degradation, and lack of heading tags preventing proper header navigation.

    You may also want to get a professional writer in there to redo your content, since the "engrish moist goodry" of things like "how we do" or "Our company offer a unique proposition" makes anyone visiting with better than a fifth grade reading level kneejerk into getting medieval on yer tuchas Samuel L. Jackson style: "Englisc, mōdor wyrter! Gedōn ēow cweþan hit!?!"
