So what do you think of this new design? Took me about 15 minutes to do (most of it spent choosing an image and then deciding where to put it) and I think it worked very well, so I'm going to use the same principles on some client sites.
BTW, the sunset image is of my suburb, was taken by Gillon McClintock, a Kensington photographer. and used courtesy of "I Love Kensington" residents association. You can contact Gillion at www.processedlemon.co.za if you want to use his services or buy his stock photography.
