I agree with this assessment. Apologies if it's harsh, but your site looks boring and provides no compelling reason why someone should hire you over someone else. In fact, if I looked at your site, and compared it to some other design shops that have far more attractive designs, I wouldn't hire you.

Sorry that this is harsh, but your site looks like yet-another-boxy-CSS site. Of which we have plenty already.
