Website Critique

Hi everyone!

I recently completed some redesign work for this website and would love
to get some feedback from the IxD community: sonlight.com

Any input/suggestions/advice I can get will be appreciated.

Thanks!

P.S. One item I'm really looking for input on is the on-screen
login/registration and shopping cart summary. I have read (and am
beginning to agree with) that a login form and the like does not need to
be persistant, but rather, only presented when needed.

Also, I'm not sure the dropdown menu is what I really want.

Combining input and search field

Hey,

I am creating a webapplications where users can add suggestions. I am using
one field for both input and search.

Here is the prototype: http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/5808/gif1tl5.gif

1. User is asked to input a suggestion
2. During input relevant suggestions are searched and given to the user
3. User can either choose to vote or to suggest

However its currently not clear that the field also functions as a search
field...

What Colors do Designers like on a Website's Home Page?

We are a design and usability staffing company redesigning our website.
While we have come closer to the layout for our website's home page we are
having a debate on the colors to use on the home page. Since our target
audience would be designers and usability people would you like to suggest
what colors would be appealing to you. I can also send you the
sample/prototype of home page individually if you would like me to and give
some suggestions.
