Hi Daniel - Clean site. Here are some suggestions:

1 - Lose the margins on the page. Try adding these attributes to your <BODY> tags: topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" rightmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"
These attributes will remove the white border around your pages.

2 - Page colors - How about a little subtler blue? Or a nice shade of green? Green is a very calming color. Also I would use white as your main content background color. The light blue you are using is a bit "loud" and as was stated before, it's hard to tell that the yellow text are links. Many people are used to the familiar blue underlined links - couldn't use this default color on the background you've chosen.

3 - Your "Bookmark Us" page - maybe consider adding some JavaScript that would allow IE users to bookmark your site with a single click - See

4 - I think a bigger, better designed logo is in order. This is your chance to "brand" your site.

5 - Testimonials - How about showcasing some of your work? Perhaps provide links to some past clients or provide some screenshots. This will build a bit of confidence.

You're facing a big challenge. As a Web site design company you have to have a VERY good Website. Your site is clean and effective but it seems to be lacking something. Try a few different color schemes and maybe add some (quick-loading) images to jaz it up a bit. I like your left border navigation approach. Good luck!
