I finished a mockup of a new theme last night.  I’m in the process of converting it to use for WordPress.  If you want to take a look at the general layout, head over to http://www.the-gatekeeper.net/misc/blackpress for a look. (A word of warning, it looks fine in FF, Chrome, Safari, and IE8, IE7 looks horrid.  I’m probably going to include some code in the final page that forces you to upgrade/use a different browser.  I just don’t like having to code for IE7 and earlier.)

It’s not my overall design.  I was following along on a tutorial for making it in Photoshop.  About the only thing I’ve really done differently is color and a bit of positioning.  But it’s really good, because there were a lot of elements in there that I had no clue how to make, and it’s helped me get my Ps skills better.

If you can’t tell, I tend to favor clean and somewhat “minimal” design looks.
