I want the design updated to a more modern look that is a bit "fresher" than the current version. The layout should remain "about" the same, I do want a few changes that I have noted in the following mockup:
To sum up the mockup:
1. remove the paid links bar
2. put the recent visitors there
3. put a 468x60 banner where recent visitors currently are
4. add two boxes above the current location of the posts, top moneylinks and rss
5. add 125x125 ad blocks to the menu
6. create a footer for the page.
Those are the only requirements. Have fun and get creative.

I want the final design to be preferably in a Fireworks PNG, or a PSD will also work. I will need any fonts that you use emailed to me also if they are fonts not on windows.
I prefer to pay via paypal but am flexible to pay other ways.
Thanks. Have fun and get creative.
