Thank you for getting back to me. Not much in terms of complaints but more
on improving the design and layout structure. As you know it looks a little
out dated I am sure I can revamp it and make it more appealing, add strong
to improve the UI. Not just on the aesthetics but I am a keen advocate of
web standards all my coding are always of high quality that meets
regulations and meets accessibility guidelines.
I know what you been by constraints. I worked for large organisations before
such as Hitachi, Panasonic, Nokia, Lexmark, CISCO and many more. So I am
well aware of branding guidelines and restrictions.
Do you currently allow outside freelancers to help work on your website? As
I am very keen in helping, my way of contributing back to the community.
