I actually like the light blue color for the little title and heading images. The asterisk image for new posts look cool, too. :)

BTW, I've been wondering what kinda font you used for the logo?

The rotofugi logo?

That's Gill Sans by amazing type designer, sculptor and weirdo Eric Gill.

Yeah, I thought it was a basic font that was included in Windows or Mac software, but I couldn't seem to find it.

Thanks for the info! :)

your not going to keep the header that large are you?

with the new table padding and font sizes alot of the interface is falling low on the page. I gotta ask - why the change? I rather liked how uber clean and usable the original was.

I have to agree with the first critique. The header image does indeed look a bit big. I don't mind the changes as the overall look is still fairly simple. I also find the change refreshing.
