Thank you very much dainix, I caught a hold of it in my rss feed reader before I saw this so was already happy =)

The design has changed quite a lot from how it looks here though. While coding, and designing the other pages, I've slowly turned it more simplistic and clean. I'll get another version up soon, but in the meantime, I'd love to hear further discussion on this design =)

Matt

:trophy:Comment:

It's past 4 AM (going on no sleep) as I write this, so if my writing starts looking like that of a five year old, then you know why.
Let's start from the top (pun intended). Perhaps "your brand" should be enlarged somewhat. Clients might wish to incorporate their logo in addition to their logotext in that space, so they probably want it to stand out. It's in a good spot, though. Your top-right buttons are too generic in terms of language, however. Buy and Try work fine, but Pricing seems like a mirror of Buy, and Tour seems like a mirror of Try (and there we go with the rhymes). Additionally, Support probably doesn't belong near the top. A header like this should mostly be used to attract new users, not customers you've already sucked in (for the lack of better wording). I also think that the buttons should all be made larger, but especially Buy.
Is there any reasoning behind the name choice for Mazikeen? I find that 'Makizeen' would be simpler, considering the likeness to the word 'magazine' and the higher ease of pronunciation. In the text sub-header, that semicolon after 'online' should be made into a regular colon. The screenshots you've got below the title are great, and I love how they act as a visual bridge between the contrasting dark and light backgrounds, which also attracts attention to themselves. That's a very strong aesthetic effect you're using, and that's almost always a good thing.
As for your pointer headers, I like the simple and rounded stock image choices. I'm just a little confused as to what the difference between Main Features and 'Main Main Features' is (you made a typo :lol:). Aside from that, those look nice. As some people have already mentioned, the red button's sub-text, "Only $30 for a regular licesnse" should have a few things done to it. 1, it should be spelled right. :XD: 2, it should be made more visible by increasing its contrast with the dark background or by laying a white glow around it (I prefer the first technique, although you might be able to play either off well enough, seeing your skills). 3, it should be reworded. Perhaps "$30 and up" would be better, seeing as it's short, sweet, and to the point. The 'or Take the tour' text beneath it could also use some minor changes. The 'or' can be omitted entirely, since it's just a weak placeholder. The 'Take the tour' should then be recentered, and I'd suggest that I'd be made more visible as well, this time by increasing its size.
Although I really like the gradient cutoff line you added, product screenshots steal your visitors' precious eye gazing time (study internet browsing patterns and you'll see what I mean). Moving them to the bottom should help prevent that from becoming an issue. Having an email subscription form is always a good thing. I'm slightly worried about your "Feedback/What are people saying about us?" box. Since fraud and scam play increasingly big roles in everyday peoples' lives, and customer quotes are easy to fake, those boxes can sometimes trigger a sense of distrust. This could be evened out by creating a VeriSign seal and placing it near the footer, considering that about 9/10ths of internet users seem to recognize it. The footer itself is unobtrusive and clean, which is the exact way it should be. I think this is where the Support link from the header should go.

Thats one hell of a feedback. Thanks for taking the time to break my design down this well. I've learned a lot, and am carrying it into the design. Thanks for your critic VBA, it's greatly appreciated.

I like it :+fav:, but I would definitely change the color of the font in the ''see plans and pricing'' button (the bottom text) it's quite hard to read. :)

Thanks, I've been told that several times, and am playing around with it to find a color that succeeds in being readable, but also slots itself nicely into the design. Thanks for your feedback, greatly appreciated =)

you asked for a little critique so here's mine, sit tight

What i would personally would change are 2 things;

*the 2 previews in header should be made of the same type, with that i mean that if you putted the mac bar on the first picture up you shouldv'e done that with the other one too (it looks more professional).

*and the second one is: on the button of ''see plans and pricing'' you've putted beneath it ''Only $30 for a regular license'' I mean whats the point at looking at the prices if its written beneath the button itself, i would make it like: ''Or try it out first for 30 days!''

Its just a suggestion and a change that i would personally do, so its all upon you now whether you want to change it or not.

Both ways good luck :)

Thanks for the input. The featured image is just something I've borrowed from the apple site, or somewhere like that until I make my own images which I'm doing soon. Sort of just a place holder for now, so yeah, they will have the mac windows most likely =)

As for the button, I hadn't thought about that, do it's definitely something I will consider.

Thanks a lot for the input, its extremely helpful =)
