Navigation of Wood, Brushed Metal and Plastic (WIP 1)

Untitled 1

These are the first design steps for the second navigation style. The center piece is 960px wide and so far it feels quite right... Still a ton of work to do. I started incorporating sketches into my workflow a lot lately. It keeps my focus and it definitely helps with visualizing what the final result should look like. I feel quite embarrassed uploading a shot like this, having seen what the PROs share but hey... gotta start somewhere right :D
