I went to your website and have a few points to add to DjinniFire's comments. For one, some of the text you use is incredibly small. So small in fact that my browser rendered it only around 5 px high. It really made the text impossible to read. This is the text along the top bar.
Also, why can't you click the calculator to go to the calculator? The arrow and text seem to make it seem like you should click on the calculator because the text is dark and the image really stands out. In any case, you may want to try that.
As for the design as a whole, something seems incomplete about it. It almost seems like one of those junk websites you accidentally go to when actually looking for something different. Almost like it was thrown together. I know you probably spent many hours actually making the site, and it does look clean, but it could use more indicators of what is important in your site. Nothing stands out, nothing (except the text that is far too small at the top) drops into the background. When everything is special, nothing is.
Hope this helps, and I hope you get your message out to a great many people!
Don't want to be mean or anything, but it looks realy boring. It's in my eyes not clean at all, it's very messy with those colors and gradients. It's a strange mix between semi light and semi dark, and just don't work in my eyes. As someone said before, it's nothing that stands out on the site, I don't know where to start looking, and what I should focus on.
Well, I like the layout for the most part. I think it looks fairly clean and professional...
As for the text, I think the size is fine. It renders at a normal reading size for me.
Some changes you might want to consider, though...
Shrink the top banner. Make the calculator a bit shorter, and then make the banner as tall as it takes to fit the two lines of text. This should cut it in size by about half, and put more text above the fold. As it is, that banner takes up a lot of real estate on the front screen.
Spruce up the mouse-overs on the main link buttons. The blockiness makes it look a bit out-dated. Add some kind of rounded corner or something to make them look nicer.
In the sidebar, you might want to re-think how the links work. In "5 Things You can Do..." I would make the title link to the main article, and then make each point link to the point in the article that it refers too. So, for "#1 Buy Local:" put up in #1 link, and link straight to that. Also, ditch the "Read More" links and make the actual titles (Buy Local, Drive Less, etc) the links.
You also might want to find some way to improve the calculator graphic. It looks really old and blocky, and it's the biggest detractor for me in terms of the sites visual layout.
Looks OK to me, the font sizes are all readable and not too small anywhere. You probably made some changes since the first critiques. I'm using Firefox in windows, at 1024 x 768 rez if that helps.
I would like to see a little warmness of color, even a little brown would cheer it up. Kind of gloomy the way it is colorwise, but other than that the design is pretty good.
First - I clicked the english link, but I still had to chose between english and french when I entered the site. The chose-language-page looked rather boring, and some people may not go further to your content because of that.
Clouds - we had them on the XP-desktop, we had them on the Win95-desktop - probably on the Vista-desktop too. Try to use an image that is more relevant to your sites content.
The site is nice and clean, but the colors and the thin headings makes the layout a bit boring. I'm sure that your message would be more appealing to read with a nicer layout.
nice website dude may be you can play with some good colur combination.
very nice site and very useful site
