    the website just works, your making your work the showcase and the website certainly conveys that.

    iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch

    i like the content and as previously mentioned it takes the front seat in this design which is good.

    A few things before the major problem:

    1. I would have the emota intro page as the first page with a link to the most recent creation. When someone comes onto the site at the moment there is no information about what emota is unless they click onto another page.

    2. On the Connect page the contrast on the names of staff and the photo makes them hard to read.

    3. Volume button on player seems to only work as a mute or unmute?

    The main problem:

    On a iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch your site doesn't work (content doesn't play), which is a shame as your site would have looked good on my beta iPad ;)

      Thanks for the feedback Joe. We are currently developing the delivery system to accommodate for mobile devices like iPhone and iPad. This will be in place this Thursday.

      The landing page allows the user to click and view the latest video. Some clarity is needed here.

      Agreed on the text with background image. We are planning on changing the contact photo up on a monthly (?) basis

      We opted out for volume control as we wanted to allow sound or not. The player we have developed has all of the normal functionality, we just turned some off for aesthetics on the website.

      good luck with the mobile device development.

      I would defiantly get the clarity on the landing page.

      I like to have control of the sound :( but maybe i am just being picky ;)

    ...great job.

    the only things i have to mention are extremely minor and this is a beautifully executed website featuring really wonderful work.

    i had a strange thing happen while loading some of the videos. the "LOADING" progress loader is showing up under the 'emota' logo and is cut off, but sometimes i see it appearing in the middle where i'm sure you're intending it to appear. i took a screen shot of it happening, im viewing your site in firefox on a mac.

    your social networking icons are arranged nicely in the bottom right, but i wish they would just become colorized on rollover instead of flipping

    lovely simple design to showcase the work. :)

      Thanks Miranda! I have noticed this bug as well, and it has only occurred in Firefox for Mac in my testing. When I get some free time, ha ha ha ha, I'll do some more research. Currently I think it is due to the FF for Mac Flash players eventListener miss cues.

      I agree about the social media icons. I was honestly lazy and dealt with the icons last. I'll try to implement this on the update this Thursday to the site.

      Thanks again!

    Very clean, simple and elegant...I like it. I think you could use a better home page image. Something that tells you what emota is right away, instead of having to click "emota". Also, increase the contrast on the navigation, very hard to read.
