    Beautiful illustrations, lovely palette and even better to see a company from Braga doing great work. Some of the loveliest people you can meet in Portugal.

    I agree with a lot of what's being said here - there is a lot of website going on, and it's not immediately obvious what you do. When the average user's attention is all of 5 seconds you need to make an impression and convey your product/work instantly.

    Most users won't hang around to find out what you're all about, or will be put off by the vague nature of the copy around the site.

    Visually it's stunning and you should be so proud of it -- but there is a fine line between self indulgence and beauty. Just make sure you haven't crossed over into the the realm of self indulgent design.

      Hi there Thomas,

      Thank you for that. We do understand the users attention spawn is short but we built this website with 3 types of targets and we built it to attract those targets. We made a significant effort to create solid copy along with our illustrations to attempt to make people stay on the site for a while longer.

      Only in a few months we'll be able to tell if it's working or not :)

      Thanks again and you should stop by for coffee with us if you ever find yourself in the neighbourhood :)
