Technical Requirement: I'll need a layered PSD File as part of the assignment.
I want a blog design that is highly professional, inspires trust, is super clean and crisp in appearance, and is dead simple to navigate and browse current articles as well as the archive.
I'd like to be able to insert my twitter feed on it as well.
Here's one that I really like: http://bhorowitz.com/
Here's one that I also like, but think is a bit too busy: http://www.avc.com/
I'd like the colors to be similar to be dark blue with subtle accents of dark red or maybe blood orange...
The typeface should be clear, simple and bold. Again, the bhorowitz.com blog is a good proxy...
