    I like the curernt one better. The mockup looks like a step back in time, esp. with the bevels.

    Just some minor things.

    Are the "1GY" blocks buttons of some sort? They look that way because they have such sharp edges compared to the other artwork. Might want to blur them a wee bit to blend in if they're not.

    In the bottles with the names, it took a few moments for it to register that the missing 'C's were on the bibs. Maybe not a big deal since they spell out the URL, but you may want to make them stand out little more if people get to the site through links from elsewhere.

    Navigation tabs on the right with a fixed layout can get annoying if the browser window isn't maxed. Should be livable if the most commonly clicked ones are closest to the left.

    Seems like the page's title should be a little more visible. It is a little hard to read.

    Also, the bevel and shadow do seem a little out of place.

    NSFW means Not Safe For Work -- for all those people that surf the web all day on the job and don't want IT to have any reason to report them (AKA looking at porn at work).

    ok the design is all up and sorta running, needs a little more polishing but i think it fits in nicely with my redesigned site. http://www.dev.cossycomforts.com/
