I like the new styling, however some of the headlines are sort of hard to see. That dark navy (or black) on the dark blue background makes me strain to read it, and you certainly don't want your potential clients doing that. Other than that, I like the font choice and everything else.
When I buy stickers for folks in prison, I bring milk not backyard meth - it's a prison party!
I like it better but I would add more of a margin to the sides of your text and stuff. Also add more white by making all your text white. Also you might want to pick happier colors this time. The blue and brown feel is kind of gloomy.
I increased the padding on the content area. I played with the colors a little more, but I'm still not sure. The browns and grays are to tie into the header. I'm not sure what other colors to use. I thought about a green or maybe even red, but they wouldn't really mesh with everything else.
Calebninja: Sorry my post was not meant to attack your criticisms on youtube tutorials and blogs, but more so to spark the question as to the resources available to make a designer better outside of school....
