    I've decided to start working on sprucing up my site's index page, which ATM is not much, just contact stuff for myself. I've started to design a header, but I'm unskilled in the ways of Fireworks MX. I suck at graphics, so I'm keeping it simple

    I actually kind of like what I threw together, but it's too stale, too sharp of a contrast.

    Here's what I have so far. Yes, it is VERY basic ATM. With this idea I'd like to have the ".org" wording have an outline of black, and keep the inside white, basically a negative of what it is now. TO see what I mean, just highlight the ".org"

    The idea I'd like (but which is outside my skill level) is to have what is currently white a shade of blue. The part which is currently blue would be black. The curved line between the white and blue would mark the middle of a curved gradient between the blue/dark blue and total black areas.

    FYI: It's www.tweaky.org

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you posted this thread to ask someone to do the image for you? If so I could try to help you? I'm not bad with Fireworks MX, I've made a couple of images for sites, like for my school's web site.

    Well, this is just for my personal site, so I don't need anything fancy, but thanks for the offer. I remembered where gradient was, so this new file might help. AS you can see, where the white stops, it goes from black to blue. I'd like to reverse that, so it goes from blue to black, but I'm not sure how.

    Yes, that's a lot closer to what I'd like. I think I just figured part of it out, cone gradient. Only change to it though would be that the white part would be a medium blue, and the black part would be a dark blue. Black seems too dark. Here's something I worked on.

    Your image looks a bit weird. Maybe its too dark and the cone gradient doesnt look very good.
    anyway, cya.
