The design is ok, but the content is confusing. Catchphrases like "Deliver
Flexibility" that say nothing and then links arbitrarily collected below those
catchphrases make sure that you have to hunt through every link on the page
before you find the one you want. And how do those categories relate to the
"About Us", "Participate", etc. links on the top right.

"Sign up to our mailing lists or check out the Getting Started page.." on top
and then you have to search in the page for the link to the "mailing lists"
(which is there) and the link to "Getting Started" which is not.

And no news on the main page.

The old web page is much easiert to navigate. Take the old page layout, fix a
few things here or there and use the design elements from the new web page.
