This is what I did so far on the redesign. Nothing is final yet, (for one thing, I may do a different kind of leading between the buttons) but I really, truly am sick of pastels. I snagged these colors directly off a couple of medieval stained glass windows — I love stained glass, especially that which was done with the limited color palette of the Middle Ages. I’ll work on this as I can — the link will stay good, so if you’re curious about how the work is coming, go ahead and bookmark it.
