oh no, its all going backwards.
what i wrote with the .bmp that was too big, got refused and disappeared was:
ive attached a quick drawing to suggest a way you could think about redesigning talkingabout.com
as you can see ive put the logo in the middle and have boxes sitting around it so the layout continues the theme of the site.
the colors ive used are from the logo. bg is the white (f9f7e7 249,247,231), the boxes are the red (e20a16 226,10,22), i would have the text in the black (020202 2,2,2) and links in the yellow (eea809 238,168,9).
the bigger boxes could have text areas within them as color as bg, and the smaller boxes could contain links. you could either just have the boxes that you need with text in them or you could also add empty coloured boxes to fill in the gaps.
you could have the drop-down menus on top of each other rather than next to each other to fit in the box at the top of the circle.
as for font, i would use a handwriting font for the headings such as bradley hand itc, lucida handwriting, or mistral, and either trebuchet, verdana, tahoma, or arial rounded mt bold for the to-be-read text.
hope this is useful, if i think of anything else, or come up with other better layouts ill let you know.
