This was my challenge:

I am not a web designer and so I did find this challenge quite difficutlt; that's all part of it

All feedback is appreciated!

Looks pretty good, but I can see a few issues with the UX in this design. Typically, you'd want all of your menu navigation items within the same vicinity, I personally would have placed the fa-bars to the right of the fa-users.

Also, with the button on the header that reads "Find out more", typically, I would expect that to be utilized for another means. I would have placed this within the fa-bars menu, as the search functionality isn't a feature users would typically be utilizing.

The stock numbers and brand images below it seem as though they've simply been thrown in without any regard. I personally would have utilized a larger black (and semi-transparent) placeholder box. I then would have moved the brand images to the bottom, just above the website's footer with a similar, but less subdued style.

Lastly, the images at the bottom seem to be stretched, and not resized within a 1:1 aspect ratio. I'm a bit confused by the NEWS articles at the bottom, are those a:hover? I certainly would have done those in an entirely different style, perhaps again utilize a semi-transparent and black placeholder with the article's title and a bit of an excerpt with a "Read More" to entice the user. Would also have liked to have seen a footer within this design, be sure to contact me if you need any help.

Thanks for this feedback it helps me a lot! I must admit I did throw the "sponsors" in to fill space - the idea with regards to the bottom does sound like a much better option! I am going to leave this behind for now as I am going to try a new challenge! Thank you very much though
