Re-create this template: http://drop.io/99designs6402/asset/…t-page-png
(Download file - it's fireworks, but will open as .png in anything)
Use widths from download file.
If you want to WIN:
I want more white, more clean, less graphics, think: http://chrome.google.com ... or http://www.37signals.com
Use the same colors as this color scheme: http://www.text-link-ads.com/ (they are vibrant and sharp)
the links in header, just make them simple text links like in the header here: http://www.basecamphq.com
we don't need many graphics, just clean, yet FRESH (like the http://www.37signals.com homepage)
header does not need graphics, see header on http://www.37signals.com... or http://www.basecamphq.com
One last note, notice how clean (few graphics, just cool icons) and simple (nice white background, good white space) this is: http://basecamphq.com
Do NOT use graphical text when html text will do, I want flexibility to change wording.
AND ONE LAST POINT:
Clean design with few graphics, but crisp small clean icons is preferred. (like green checkboxes instead of html bullets)
Creativity is appreciated :-)
