I will use this topic to talk about the development of my site with DMS and is where I will be asking for tips and ideas. So not to flood the forum. Also a place to get idea of a whole site progress when using this.
A little about my project C.A.S. Center Ace Studio Centerace.com is home to our web site network coming along later. It's a idea I been tossing around for a year. For me when I design I like a natural design that ether being a landscape or raw materials. I know it seems weird for a tech like site as mine. I think big internet company have gave people the idea that plain white is best and let your tech speak for you. Why you think this may be? I'd say to much concrete in these people life. Almost every job I have had was outside yet I like tech. I guess I like to be the best of both world lol. I say if you have a style that works don't let the pros rules effect your design unless you for some reason think you will 100% the same audience.
I begin messing with the slider and made it look like a oversized gif by taking a logo and making two version,inverted of each other, then placed them in a slider. There 2 effects I like boxfade which is what I'm using and paper cut. Then I placed a wooded background. I been looking for a good Content Base Color/image but I cant find the css code for it in the doc.
