I have already done somewhat of a mockup in an attached png image.
I also need a sidebar on the left, the items in this sidebar will change depending on what page they have visited. Example of one I like :http://www.takemefishing.org/fishing/fishopedia/home
I would like a 2 sidebar layout, with the middle section being something similar to what I have designed.
I have something similar to this already, however I don't like the look of it.
I have a logo that has already been designed which I think looks acceptable, but if you can do better be my guest. I want the header to be unique, but the menus need to contain the words that I have in the mockup, and span the entire length of the viewers page.
Background image has been one of my biggest concerns, trying to get it to look right, something unique and fishing orientated would be excellent.
I also need a subscriber section under the header like in my image, I don't want the same but something similar and obviously fishing orientated, maybe a fisherman or something. To the right of this subscriber lead section, I would like a social area that lets visitors like the site, tweet it etc, and also promote the forum, and membership area.
Clean footer would be excellent to.
I am giving you quite a lot of room for unique designs, so I am looking for some excellent results.
Colour schemes are up to you however I chose blues in my mockup because of the ocean, but anything is acceptable.
