    That looks good, along with saxDesigns probably the closest I have seen so far to what I'm looking for. I like the clean organised look and it uses space well when some of the others have looked too cluttered.

    I'm not sure about the thin border around the top block, maybe the blue manu on it's own would be better using colour blocks below to designate the different areas.

    The sidebar looks nice, though I'm not sure about the date icon on the posts.

    Again to everyone entering this, I can't emphasis enough how important it is to look at the links I provided. Plenety of people are entering designs that look nothing like them and I don't want to waste people's time.

    Things I like about each design,

    http://www.thinkfree.com/
    Colour scheme
    Use of space and gradiants
    Sidebar backgrounds
    Icons
    SEMrush
    http://standoutjobs.com/site/
    Colour scheme
    Tab menu
    Sidebar
    Footer

    http://www.mozilla.org/
    Header/footer
    Icons
    Colour scheme
    Rounded elements

    Hopefully this will give people a better understanding of what I'm looking for.

    It looks good, but it doesn't really look like any of the sites in the brief.
