Hey everyone. Sorry about the subject title...needed something to lure you in :D
Anyways, I posted a similar thread in this forum called Kill this layout! (Are we seeing a pattern here?), wherein I have a selection of layout ideas that I have presented for lambasting by Typophile frequenters, e.g. hrant, Birdseeding, sanderpe.
15 weeks on, I have boiled down the best of those ideas, argued constructively with the powers-that-be for a decent budget for fonts, and tried to learn how to do Illustrator, to come up with this.
