Near perfection?

Is Metropolis the ultimate ‘Don't Make Me Think’ website? Almost

The home page, or rather the top quarter of the home page screen has 'Metropolis' on the left, 'portfolio/office' on the right. Below is a horizontal strip of thumbnails. Click on one and, below appears a big image and a brief description. A little grid of squares below the main image suggests that there are more to see. And so there are. You naturally want to know more.

Click on 'Office' on the top line. Oh, no, you heart sinks at the addition to the headings: 'Philosophy'. I won't recite what's there on the grounds that it's misguidedly 'poetic' and difficult to understand. Still, it's also very brief.

Click on 'Contact' and there is the Capetown address. Following the excellent Web design rule: 'even less is more', I'd forget the poetic philosophy and also make the contact details a constant element. And then the site would be tight and just about perfect.
