Still experimenting with a potential minor realign. Logo label and link color derived from rotating large photography on the homepage.
Also taking Sentinel for a spin for the logo type. Seems to fit the mark better for some reason.
All of this experimenting is in a sense, an undesigning. Using a photo to change things up whenever I have time, strip away design elements that aren't necessary (wood strips).
The tinkering, it continues. This is what happens when I try and take most of the week off.

Go for it! Love the background texture you're experimenting with here.
I like where you're headed with stripping out some of the design elements from the current site. That photo / graphic sandbox banner space is going to be the knockout punch.
Love it, especially the new type. It's a much better fit.
Love the new type too.
I feel that minimalism will be the 'style' of 2010.
Loving Sentinel too; a great choice.
Great color here. Don't rotate the image -- keep this one :)
Have you already tried Meta Serif for the logo type?
@Paul Randall: Minimalism is not a "style". It's an approach.
Loving it. I feel like the badge could use a 1px drop shadow at the bottom (very very light shadow).
guys, imagine how awesome it would be to change the theme colors of the layout according to the color tones of the picture of the main post.
@Taddeo - ahem.
Like the idea of changing the color to match the photo. Did that a while back with Asterisk (coming back in 2010!!) and had a lot of fun with it.
Really liking Sentinel for the font Dan.
Love the new type treatment. Side-by-side, Sentinel wins hands down.
@max OK perhaps 'trend' was a better word to use; in any case I think we will see more minimalist sites being created in 2010.
Thanks Dribbblers :)
@Cameron: great suggestion, considering I'm using Meta Serif for heads via Typekit. Just noticed the Web Pro version is missing Medium though, and that's probably what I'd need. Also falling in like with Sentinel's 'S' and 't' :)
Absolutely love the stripping away of the unnecessary fields of color (i.e. header area is blue, content is lighter blue, etc.).
Sentinel's nice. Reminds me of Glypha a bit.
ultra-upgraded, if that's even possible.
Love the architectural style that the photo brings the design into.
There's something about architectural magazines that empties my budget.
Giving up on the wood paneling? Bummer. I do like the inheritance from photo, even if it is a bit Sheaesque.
I love the way it looks like it's waterpaint effect, but still maintaining that pixel box effect.
I like Sentinel here. I wish it came with small caps.
That weathered pixel effect in the edging is oh so nice. Reminds me of all the "ghost signage" here in Philly – but inspired by the digital age.
Big pixels are back! Awesome.
Love that texture you've got going there...
I DEFINITELY like this! (do it)
