whilst you have 'tabs' above your different sections, the sections themselves have no 'containment'. a border extending from the tab to contain these parts would help.

your colour scheme is not good. light(ish) blue text on a white background, IMO, is a big no-no, but there's something dodgy in general. i'm not a proper designer, so can't put my finger on it or pick the right words, but it's not pretty.

your 'get a quote' section looks both cluttered and clumsy. the pieces need air to breath, which even my first point wouldnt solve.

doing it in pure CSS is a waste of time if you have 28 validation errors in it
"you have to keep pissing in the wind to learn how to keep your shoes dry..."

I say old chap, that is rather amusing!

it's starting to take shape.
my other comments still stand:

- the sections (about us, man in charge, get a quote, etc) need some containment, IMO.
- get a quote: cluttered + clumsy. for example - the question that asks me how many pages. i have room to type about 19 characters. you can make the box much much smaller to free up space.

also
- your navigation could be better. ok so there's rollover effect, but it just doesnt look right at all just being plain text.

the site is too light as a whole, with the light blue/green on white. you need to darken the colours down a bit or employ some darker shades just to bring the edge off it.

all in all, i think it's OK - but needs work.
Cheers

- Your logo reads "Designer and programmer" and in the "About us" tab we read "[2fr3sh Designs] are dedicated to designing websites and develop". That doesn't make sense.
- If the site is about your company and not about yourself (i.e. personal homepage), get rid of the "The man in charge" and "My Colleague" tabs. They distract from the main purpose of the page - that is to sell your web services. Moreover, the clients don't care if a single person or a team make their pages, imho. Which makes this the more unnecessary.
- "Get a quote" deserves own page and menu anchor. Replace the <input> with <textarea>, so that the potential client can write you. The exclamation mark seems to me little cheap.
- Make the menu left-aligned and with little less padding on the top and bottom.

The page is not bad and with there corrections will get pretty good.

I cant say Im impressed or whether Id choose you to undertake a website for me.

1. Your website is broken in Opera.
2. You really should be using xhtml
3. You still have a LOT of tables in your code.
4. You have warnings in your css.
5. You dont have your forms working yet.

Can you put a shadow under the bottom of your #main div? It kinda cuts off abruptly.
I realise you are in development stages. I hope you can bring it together.

in fact, i probably have a better idea, rather than continuing with your new design.
i had a little bit of a look at your old/current site: http://2fr3sh.com/ and i'd probably say that, given a bit of a lick of paint, validation, etc, you should stick to that style, as it's a lot better than the new one. looks a lot more professional (maybe apart from 'games page' and 'funny videos' which wouldnt really suit a web design company).

cheers
