I am thinking about reworking the layout of my resume and I could really use some input. This is the current layout, but not current work history, education etc. I am just trying to get a feel for what is and is not working as far as layout, logo, font, etc...

First, I suggest NOT doing a right-align. I think it throws people off, and there's no reason for it.
Maybe try adding a bit of color too. The Conner in the circles is a bit tough to read, not a big fan of that. YOu can play off those circles but make your name a bit more legible.
For content. I think you say "I" WAY too much. Try to keep it short and simple..of COURSE it was YOU who do this or that!
You also should REORDER your sections:
Objective (some like this some do not - your choice)
(I guess you could flip the last two around - doesn't really matter).
Hope that helps.
I'm really having a difficult time reading the text because of the right justification.
You might want to consider that factor for your next layout because someome might miss something important.
The circles images stretching across the top also leave an unbalanced feeling for me. Others may feel differently and it may change if you change the justification.
Just some quick starters to give you food for thought.

watch the ragged left, agreed on not right aligning
make sectioning more apparent (bolds?)
i wouldn't do color since it seems more decorative than functional, although one or two spot colors could help
i dont see the point in having conner in the cirlces right under your name, and anywya, the placement of conner on the way left of the page makes reading the resume difficult
but overall there needs to be more contrast, everything looks the same (circles are as thin as the text, etc)
On a more serious review...
Flush right is a PITA to read.
No one cares about HS graduation, or schooling you never finished. Loose those. As a matter of fact, anything related to HS, loose it (community service completed).
Your job titles and how spaced out they are are REALLY annoying to look at.
If you know CS3, you know CS2. No need to get redundant there. Plus... "Knowledge of CS2 and CS3, Illustrator, Photoshop... It's all a pacakge - The coma is not needed there. With it there it reads as different programs. Make sure you don't list 'Quark' The full program name is "Quark XPress", what version are you up to date on with it?
That's all I got for now.
The conner inside the circles is what I was using for my logo. Is it really that hard to read? I kind of liked it like that because it looks more artistic but when you look twice it is my last name... As far as the right justification, I thought that it looked unique and would stand out when with others resumes... you guys don't think so?? as far as the content I agree....
BTW... dont call me lol
Ok I couldn't in good conscience leave that up there.
I took off your number, name and email.
Hope you don't mind the Mother in me came out lol

I wish my resume was nice and tidy like this. I am currently updating my resume for a collaborative arts project. I haven't touched it since 2002. Not a good thing when you have a curriculum vitae attached to the sucker. Crap. As I type, it sits down in my docked windows, waiting patiently for me to move out of my procrasnitation mode.
Also be careful how you word things. One of your sections is worded irrily close to how I have the SAME section worded on my resume which has been posted up here a few times. Not accusing you of anything or saying what it is, just saying it's quite.... odd.

I personally just list things on my resume instead of writing sentences.
So instead of:
I graduated from The Art Institute of Ohio-Cincinnati in Cincinnati, OH, in June, 2007 with an Associates Degree in graphic design
I would have
Associates Degree (graphic design)
The Art Institute of Ohio-Cincinnati

Great minds think alike???

Today, 09:12 AMCommented to New Newspaper Ad for Annual RallyI think that if you made the faded background image on top a different colour (match a shade of the bottom colour maybe?) the image on the left will work - its actually a nice idea.
Today, 09:04 AMCommented to New Newspaper Ad for Annual RallyThe shapes are very confusing. If it hadn't been pointed out that the left side had a running persons silhouette I would never have figured it out. It just looked like some weird shapes to me at first.
Today, 08:53 AMCommented to Problems seeing multiple page threadsI am having the same issues as skribe pointed out above... Also the "last page" function is heavily missed but I assume this is something that you guys are working on. I am fully aware of that...
Today, 08:42 AMThat's kind of what I thought was the main problem, thanks Red Kittie Kat. I'll be patient, don't worry. :P
Today, 08:20 AMCommented to Problems seeing multiple page threadsIt's weird but the multi-page threads were working for me at first, now they are not. But if I click "latest activity" for the thread at the top, it shows me all the pages. Plus if I just add...
