So I return to India for my summer break from Newcastle University to reunite with my friends and we decide that it is the right time to bulid a company that will find and nurture the talents all over India. Current situation here is that we are becoming tools of outsourcing. The jokes that get cracked in my class in the University whenever there is a talk about cheap outsourcing is that Indians would be willing to do it. Our long term goal in starting this business up is to change this state, hunt for talents in designing and engineering all over India and give them a platform to build world class projects. Here we go.

Nice work! You forgot the .com again though haha.
Great work man! Loved the colors!
Really nice. Only thing I would change is adding a bit more left/right padding to your nav buttons. The white background behind your nav buttons looks pretty tight to me.
love the textures and colors , and may I say great name too, very catchy :)
One question. Why are you using Rdio's map? http://www.rdio.com/
Is it a pre-made map? I thought it was custom-designed for them...
On a second look I see that it's not pixel by pixel the same, but it's still the same...
@Edokoa Don't think Rdio was the first to bring the dotted world map. Here are a few results from Google
We used a plane vector map from the web, used a custom made dot pattern and then adjusted the contours so that there is no half circles.
@Vincent @Lucas Veiga @Blake Perdue Thanks a lot guys!
@Nigel Evans Glad to know that you liked the name!
And hopefully pay them the money they rightfully deserve!
I very much like the idea. Even I have cracked similar jokes, I have to admit (and I'm sorry for that)! But after seeing how much incredibly talented designers there are, and how they are used for what pretty much equals slavery, I am very glad to hear someone's trying to do something about it. Even if the living costs are lower in India, that doesn't mean talented people shouldn't get paid what their "global going rate" of sorts is.
@Ragnar Võrel Great to see people who share the same ideology ;)
What a lovely bunch of coconuts! ...Sounds like a fun project.
Ok, just saying as I had both sites open by chance and it was a WTF moment...
that map is just great! very nice work! :)
thats right @Prathyush Pramod Everyone is like India comes with Cheap but no class... we need to work towards this... Good Luck :)
Nice dotted world map at the bottom.
Great initiative! Good luck with the project. Love the site as well. :)
I am very much happy to see this.. Congrats bro. :)
@Prathyush Pramod I love the website but I do say one thing its bit of inspired from Rdio :) lol over all the designs looks great so far.. just one cent you should work on menu a bit. its looks snazzy :(
@Prathyush Pramod I found one bug on live website when you click on team link you dont redirect to their but instead of team page I got contact page? is it right or its done intensionally? :)
@Prathyush Pramod Congrats folks. The team page, does not list the team members ;) Any specific reason for that?
@David McLeod @Edokoa @Luboš Volkov @Cinn @Avinash Tripathi @Denis Talalá @Andy Ngo @Shimi Joby Thanks a lot for the kind comments ;)
@Paresh Khatri ::::✈ Really sorry, but I'm not able to follow what you're trying to tell there.
@Nikh Yep, we are hunting for talents now.
@Prathyush Pramod sorry I just saw my comment and it seems Ipad corrected the words itself.. what i was trying to say was when you click on team page the information you see is contact information is that correct or its a bug?
@Paresh Khatri ::::✈ Yes, it's correct. We are hunting for talents at the moment. We will be updating the page soon as we are done recruiting.
