I feel that my current header looks like it was "pasted". The color transition from the header to the background is too abrupt. I'd like to smoothen out this transition and round the edges of the header so it doesn't look like it pasted on the remainder of the theme.
The second exercise it to make the background relevant to the theme, which is poker. This means maybe adding some cards here and there and I am open to originality. The background needs be generic to poker however, not California. I intend on using this design for other poker related sites.
The scope of work would be to modify the background and/or header so that my design has a cohesive feel. You do not need to change the body or anything else, although you are free to if you want to express yourself fully.
By the way, the awesome logo is from your own Prowler designs. I paid him 350 do it. Nice job man !
If you could deliver like he did, this would really be an incredible design in my opinion.
