This is a recent redesign for a client. I'd appreciate any feedback that you have on the layout, colours, usability etc.
As is often the case with designing web sites, we don't always have control over the client logo, and that was the case here, but any suggestions on improving it's placement or orientation within the design would be appreciated.
Hero's gaze should be directly into the camera. This leads to capturing the visitors attention.

I like the clean design. The only nit I have is that I would like to see a color other than orange in the buttons. It does not offer enough contrast with the white text and I do not think that it works well with the red background on the first page.
THis design is very professional and easy to use the only thing i did not like is having to move up and down some of the long pages maybe you should thing about putting in a auto scroll button all in all a good and professional design love the event slide
The hard edge around the image makes the background and image look separate. Soften the edge of the image..this will give the illusion that the image and background were shot together. It will have a more refined and polished look.
The navigation bar stands out way to much. The font within the navigation seems very thin... if your going to keep the font on a black background you should try to use a thicker font weight. I know that the logo in incorporated within the navigation but try a comp with the logo outside of the navigation bar. At the moment the logo seems to be focused in that space. Try finding other placement solutions if you want to keep the logo within the navigation bar.
