As you can see, I’m still trying to figure out what the border/background wants to be when it grows up. Still no clue–nothing I try looks right, everything gets on my nerves. Design geeks who want to take a stab at this are welcome to offer me advice in the comments–either URLs of uncopyrighted images that I can stick in the margins or HTML colors that would look good. The black was too stark and distracting, grey looked funny, all the greens and yellows looked off or matched tooooooo much. So I’m stuck. Do you know what I should put there?
Me, I’m going back to work now.
I’m a fan of the whitespace… punch of color at the top, sprinkles of green links in the body, and plenty of quick-loading #FFFFFF all around.
