Design looks a little dated from the modern perspective. Noted that the copyright has not been updated in over a decade which is a red flag.

The blog has also not been updated in a decade. Looks like the site was either abandoned or just not a top priority.

The about link at the top does not function whatsoever.

The website design looks clean and functional - minimalistic experience and navigation without looking too simple.

One thing to note is that the copyright date has not been changed since 2015 - something to fix.

The pricing page does not follow the aesthetic of the rest of the site however, leading to a somewhat jarring experience.

Finally, the blog page looks quite dated.

The site looks very nice which is the first thing that jumps out to me. Gorgeous looking landing image and animation which fills up the screen and draws attention well.

A minor gripe is the fact that I had to go through a pop-up redirect as I am a Canadian customer and there was a slide-down banner which temporarily covers the top bar menu.

The footer is strangely enormous with lots of blank space - would consider revising that and condensing it somewhat.

On a similar note, the Shop menu at the top rolls out and fills up my screen leading to a somewhat overwhelming experience.

News , Reference
One of the most well-known public broadcasting and news service companies in the world, the BBC has an understandably slightly cluttered site.

However, the top bar navigation works well and the news articles are front and center right on the home page.

The video, images, and featured articles are bizarrely huge - taking up the entire screen and scrolling down takes a little time on a less powerful platform such as a laptop or a mobile phone.

The footer is well designed and highly functional without being overly messy and cluttered.

A pleasant user experience, overall.

Attempted to visit the website but unfortunately was not able to navigate to it with the error message stating that the "DNS address could not be found."

Something to look at and fix immediately.

Generally, a good looking site but is a little overwhelming with the sheer amount of content on it.

The landing image itself with its great number of content is a little overwhelming to the eye and this experience only increases as one scrolls down further down the page.

Finally, the footer is simply put, enormous, and is probably not highly utilized by users as a consequence. I would suggest simplifying the website greatly, giving a sparse, more minimal experience to the user - briefly outlining the strengths of the services you offer, allowing the user to find what they are looking for and more details on it as they navigate.

In general, a very busy experience which could be improved by dividing the site into more easily consumable pages.

A very minimal landing page which looks a little too simple to inspire confidence and trust in the user.

The top links when they do work, remove the header links and do not allow the user to navigate back to the home page without refreshing. The About, Press, and Privacy links all do not seem to function.

The privacy link in the bottom does function but once again prevents navigation back to the homepage.

In general, there are quite a few issues to work on here - primarily that of navigation, of consistent user experience, and of general layout and design to make the website look complete, and not as a work-in-progress.

Interesting idea and concept but the design of the website is a little cluttered.

The footer on the very bottom of the website on the other hand is quite sparse with no info on who the website owner is and just a blank copyright symbol.

In terms of general navigation, it is alright - but clearly designed for individual landing pages as opposed to domain-based navigation - comes across as search-optimized as opposed to user-friendly UX.

The website is quite pleasant to look at and is fun to navigate despite the rather slow loading time.

One thing that leaped out at me is the fact that the copyright date on the website is placed in 2023 - not even the near future. Could well be an intentional decision!

The popover by Social Intents is quite intrusive and does not fit well with the design of the webpage, would try to improve the design of it to make it appear more in line with the aesthetic of the main site.

Nicely designed minimal interface with the product clearly showcased and with a very appealing and pleasing-to-the-eye button to "Start Now".

The navigation of the website is pleasant and smooth without a large memory footprint. Would however reconsider having footer navigation links popping up in new tabs.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.
