    So we just launched our company's "About us" page: http://www.freshgun.com/about-us/ and although we did cross-browser testing, we would like to know if everyone can see videos and portfolio items correctly. So I would like to get your feedback on this page. Also constructed criticism is always welcome on any issue about whole website.

    Thanks guys! :)

    Working fine when I checked it - both the videos and portfolio items

    I like the site, it's well designed, and engaging.

    Great idea of using the short video clips of the team members too.

    I really like your design.

    I'm knitpicking here, but I think there should be 9 staff members, just to even out the boxes ;). I think your copyright should be lower down in the footer. Perhaps also try adding your contact details above your address, in the first column, and then embedding Google Maps in the 2nd column of the footer. The "Back to top" button could be floating on the bottom right of the screen, rather than being stuck in the middle of the footer. The homepage image could also be a parallax.

    That's just how I'd do it though, and I think the site looks great anyways.

    I did think the same thing.

    You could use that 9th box to recruit new staff though - have some sort of 'could this space be filled by you?' video clip there.

    It looks really good. I like how that bloke takes a sneaky bite out of the lettuce.

    Say Hi to Inga and Raimonda for me.

    Also apart from http://browsershots.org/ here are some other cross browser testing sites: https://saucelabs.com/ http://www.browserstack.com/ http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage https://browserling.com/ http://netrenderer.com/ http://www.crossbrowsertool.com/ http://www.browsershots.at/ Most of these offer a free service but there are other commercial services available.

    I really like it, and you seem to have a hot project manager, which is always a plus in my books (refreshing compared to the stereotype of hot secretaries). Do say hi to Inga for me.

    The videos are good, especially the IT Project Manager who prefers eating vegetables to doing his job.

    And it works smoothly, so that looks like a done deal.

    Do please say hi to Inga from me. I bet she will gets more hi's as time goes by.

    The "Working Principles" and "Attitude" wall of text should be changed. The content is great, but I think it would be better if the points, such as knowledge rises to activity and what do we do are more highlighted on the text. Preferably, "Working Principles" and "Attitude" are not placed on the same row/vertical position as usually a person will read from the most left to the most right, not from the most left to the middle of the page.

    While mentioning FRESHGUN in the text, you use two colors, red and black. This is not represented in the logo, where I think all of company brands should have conformity, but this is a minor issue.

    This project also have somewhat incorrect task description, where you give description on what the park has done, not what your company has done. Your other project are perfect and good. On this particular project there is also a link to bit.ly which I think is unnecessary.

    I also take a look at the Home Page, nicely done.

    The IT Project Manager really strikes out though, his unorthodox method to introduce himself interests me. All of the staffs are also interesting, I especially like the Creative Director style.

    On the other hand, which one is you?

    That was quick!

    If you respond that quickly when working with your clients, you will have a lot of happy customers and a successful business.

    It does look better too - more balanced.

    That video effect is really great.

    I think the Creation of E-Stores page could be re-done, the columns look too tight. Could make it full width for more horizontal space.

    The copy of that page is also a little off, there is no real selling point in my opinion, could do with an entire re-work.

    Homepage layout is awesome.

    Very, very nice site. I don't think I'm in any position to give suggestions, these guys on here will do a far better job. However, I'd like to state that I've never been a fan of having a giant picture at the top of any page. When I loaded your homepage, the whole screen is taken up by that giant photo that only says "Creativity is all about knowing". I like the slogan and even the photo, but I shouldn't have to scroll down an entire screen's worth of a page, just to get to the stuff I wanna see. I had a design on my site sorta like that for a few months and one of my readers pointed out the same thing I'm sayin here. Other than that though, perfection.
