Well, this is my entry for *DAPoliticalForum
The task is to make, attractive, cohesive & relevant journal layout for the club, so I think, I achieved the given task with this & with not only modern but clean & unique layout!!
Before starting on designing the layout, (& me being completely new for the club) I studied the requirements of the club by browsing there current & previous journals, I figured out that, this being a Club has some specific requirements, like I tried to encompass various links on a menu sidebar, for easy navigation to it's members plus the space for stamps etc.!!
As for the Header, I designed a unique logo for the club (they may if they want replace it of course), my idea behind the the 3 petals with various colors is to symbolize, there ideals of politics, community & art!!
I have completely done away with the mood things, to make place for more important stuffs
for the club on Footer like, the name of there chief members plus a lil Disclaimer fly out box, so as to make it look uncluttered & pleasing to the eye!! (But, of course, if they want this lil fly out box to be IE friendly, then they can place it beneath the chief member's name or anywhere in the content area!!)
Please, full view, to understand everything what I am meaning to say above!!
It took me some time to design this layout & perhaps it will take a lil more to Code it, but, my idea is to make a layout which is easy not only for writer but also easy & appealing to readers as well!!
I hope, you guys & the Club likes it, if they don't then, I will make it available (with the required editing on header etc.) to anyone who wants it.......I don't know as yet!! Checkout my other Journal CSS for Download, if you're looking for a free template!!
