  1. This is indeed a serious problem. I really like their online screening test. Their products and services are truly backed-up with strong research.

  2. As an e-commerce design, this is a really good example. The clear layout, presentation and content are both suitable for the subject matter, but also with regards to targeting potential customers.

    What really stands out to me is the colour scheme. Though perhaps obvious in choice considering mould is the subject, it’s still imperative that it is subtle and well chosen. The dull green and more vivid brown really work well in complementing the site. From that it also highlights the content of the site brilliantly to produce a good final site.

    Moreover, Betalkortet sums it up nicely by pointing out the well researched content of the site. There’s nothing worse than having a good site let down by poor content.
