this is what i spent the night making. the color palette is the same as the design with the black background, the layout concept of the header, picture on right, title on label, nav bar underneath. the nav words will rollover to pink writing on white criss-crossed tape. the font is Damned Architect. there will be a picture "taped" to the body of the home page, like in the black design, and black on white text in the specialized font.
now i don't know which one i like better. i've been looking at them both for so long, i have no perspective. i'm going to work on some coding issues i'm having and then go back to photo manipulation. and i have to finish sketching out the outline of the site. and get a Pinterest button.
