The first design for the new site on Jules' server. This was the first time that I had used php to help me manage page layouts. Each page included a header and footer which took care of the style and the menus. All I had to do for each page was the content. It made it much less daunting to think about adding new pages.
In fact this is not the original reticulated design. The original artwork was done using Paint Shop Pro, but as I got used to Photoshop, I reworked all of the reticulated graphics to make them easier to manage for the future. As a result the interface got darker and more brooding.
This was also my first use of absolute positioning to lay out the menu items to fit into the grid.
