Tell me what you think of this very very simple design

What does everyone think of this site that took me 30 minutes to create. What else can I add to make it more appealing? Go ahead go crazy I always appreciate constructive criticism.

The main logo png is not transparent in ie.

I don't dislike it.

The stock photos on the front page are a bit poor. They are an entertainment co, a bit more razamatazz perhaps!!

I would get rid of the globe and replace it with a simple circle with a solid color maybe blue, a strong shade of blue. The content area will need to have some of its colors changed aswell ofcourse,

I doesn't really give the felling of it being an entertainment company... seems more suiting to something like a property developer and yes the stock photos don't help!

Thank you everyone for all the input. I like the full background circle idea especially.

That sounds exciting and dynamic! The design of the site gets 1 thing across: "GLOBAL"

For being a simple site, it's not bad though.

The globe must go. Take some of your own photos to replace the stock rubbish. And find some extra text for the first page - you could borrow some from the About Us page. Some excellent web typography and you're all set.

Now by web typography you mean I should embed the font within the css or create an image text heading? Can you provide some examples?

thanks

Its an alright design but a bit aged imo. By the companies description, the site could use a bit more humph.

I mean using the very restricting limits of web typography to their full advantage. There is some good advice, easy to implement, here: A Guide to Web Typography. The Basics: contrast, size, hierarchy, space | i love typography, the typography blog
