@justinfox I dont think there is an easy fix besdies having saved two versions of your images eg @x2 for retina.
Sometimes I think flat design was born from retina devices for its side stepping of having to deal with multiple images.

Hi @pscysm, thanks for the comments.
The header is easily modified so can change colour scheme pretty easy for it. The teal is from the old website, later on will look at changing it, I’ve attached a grey version which I think I will go for so its not competing with the other colours on the site.
I know what your saying about the 'Instinctively creative & thoughtful strategies with result orientated outcomes/Branding/Websites' I have had the same thoughts and when I created the site that section is modular and I easily take it out of category and specific post pages. Might do that later on too.
Yeah the big footer is give or take, just experimenting with SEO here.

Thanks @cheli for your reply
Yes hopefully by having the phone number there is encourages people to take that next step.
Fixed the years of experience to be consistent on the site.
Also good call about the heading for Services. That does need to be addressed (need to find a balance of practical / seo) and fixed so it only appears on the relevant pages.

Thanks @justinfox with the feedback.
Fixed the white fringe issue, and appreciate your attention to detail on that (in the past had left it there to give it some highlight).
The site was built with mobile first techniques and was a complete custom build so I did try and keep it light (except for when you hit the showacse area). In saying that I feel now that it is done it could easily be refined further . . . but for I wil let it run free for a bit.
With the shadow issue I had tried to have the light source for the type coming down from the top/right, yes doesnt match up perfectly with the menu drop down shadow but just had to let that be, not ideal.
When you scroll the site does become more busier, a touch of to much SEO sauce maybe : ) Though the white section is the main focus to direct people to where they need to go based on a survey I did a year or so back.
It does make me think if it is better just to keep focus or allow people to have a little wonder so to speak.
In general the site is getting less bounce rate, longer duration of staying on the site and more page views

My silver lining takeaway will be the break points:
min 480, min 768, min 992, min 1200. And the way it uses 'min' based media queries - I find it more intuitive from a mobile first perspective.
Think I'll incorporate these into my normal method.
If I was going to start using an existing framework, I'd follow @Bjarni and @Cheli's lead and look at Zurb.
