    This is the header for my final assignment in an English composition course.

    Looks better centered on the page with the red bar stretching the full width. I'll post a birds-eye shot a bit later when I finish the content portion.

    It's nice to take a break from client work and design for myself.

    Oh, and the text is supposed to have a letterpressed look, but I'm not sure the impression is showing enough. Tough to emulate with the dark colours. Thoughts?

    You can tell it looks pressed. Subtle is the key for that trick. Great design btw!

    The letterpress effect on screen is a challenge - you've done it well I reckon.

    Derrick, this looks awesometown. Suggestion on the letterpressing - with darker colors, I find it's easier to create the effect by lightening the bottom of the text/shape/image versus darkening the top. To me, when you darken the top while using darker colors, it makes the edge just seem blurry. Make sense?
    Oh, and I agree with John, subtlety is the key!

  6. Thanks for the comments guys.

    @Chandler, I opted for your suggestion of a lighter highlight on the bottom. You're right, it did look blurry. Looks much better now, though the sharpening in this scaled version makes it stand out more than it actually is.

    I need to spice up the navigation a bit.
