Final Projects

This week we designed comps for our homepage based around our wireframes from last week.  My design looks overly busy and needs some work.

I feel like it loses the simplicity of the white background.  I’m considering making the logo smaller and higher and dangling the navigation from it on metal chains/pins.  I think the words at the bottom will have to be turned into something that is more obviously text art.  They seem like they could be links.
