    Here is a child theme I designed using the Hybrid framework.

    It is for a client that does Elevator Installation & Service in Orange County CA called Excelsior Elevator.

    Feedback and advice is appreciated, thanks!

    Wow! Didn't know elevators were supposed to be sexy. Congrats!

    looks good - I would just maybe make the image (of the elevator) on the homepage "flash" with 1 or 2 other images
    I always think images with a human element can spice things up a little ...

    Then on your sub pages ... I like the "sales tagline" of "Always Upward in Excellence" so I would make that stand out a little better

    Hope this helps - Cheers Alice, [sig moderated per forum rules]

    Nice design, and nice use of the Hybrid framework.

    From an SEO point of view, there would probably be some benefits to having individual pages for each of their major service points.

    Not sure if it's just me, but your client's website loads pretty slow on my computer. You might want to try adding WP total cache or similar plugin. Other than that, the site looks great. I also use the hybrid framework, though I'm far from being able to write my own child theme.

    Hm, I just found this old post.

    I also use the hybrid framework, though I'm far from being able to write my own child theme.

    Kinda ironic, I guess.

    I did create a Hybrid Child Theme not long after I posted that comment.

    Here's my theme: Hybrid Child Theme.

    Hi Jmorrow, I see that in your theme you use Hybrid 0.8 and I've tested in Ie6 and shows no problems =). On the other hand, I've been working on a similar theme but cannot make it work on ie6, have you used any special coding only for that version of ie? any fix?

    In older versions of Hybrid I saw that the body class detected ie6, but in the newer version, only msie is used...

    Thanks in advance!

    those elevators looks very good, your client does make some real good looking elevators,

    just a small little suggestion, try removing the white border from the top image, am sure due to the blue background, the image will look even better without the border,
