Design overview – Logo is isolated and lacks prominence; the site appears cluttered and content heavy. Typeface is a regular Arial and not legible hence, does not encourage reading. Information is scattered all over the layout with improper flow of dominance to elements and aesthetics. There is no uniformity in terms of design and layout because the font, colors and positioning of content change page to page. Overall, the site needs to be revamped in terms of design, information architecture and content.
