Ohio Steel

The landing page here is intended to be a page linking to pages, no wait, it links to other sites, oh no maybe they are just other divisions or sub sites. Wouldn't it just be easier to have a real menu with link to pages that tell us what we are looking at?

The sub pages have a completely different look and it doesn't matter if it was on purpose or not, it is confusing and it was a mistake because it will confuse users. We also have a custom background that probably took a designer all day to create but the dumb content keeps getting in the way, maybe they need a splash page so we can really enjoy it!

The menu buttons are nice and big and easy to see, only one problem, they don't match anything else on the page so we end up with these steel looking boxes floating in space that look like they were stolen from another steel site.
