    Hey,

    Start by creating a 800px by 180px header... find a picture on www.istockphoto.com for a $1.00 which captruizes what your website is for, use a piece of it for the header, and then place text over the picture using the text tool in photoshop.

    Click on Blending Options, play with the Stroke, Drop Shadow, and Contour to make a cool like text effect...

    You can hit up, 1001 free fonts.com for some cool text for your website.

    Then you can just have a normal white body, 800px by 800px where the information would be, place a box in the upper right hand side for a newsletter sign up.

    Close the site with a 800px, by 80px footer...

    Then you have to splice and dice it

    use Adobe Dreamweaver and try learning basic html, try looking for tutorials on the subject, is quite easy.

    Hi Ant,

    Look around for 'Albert Hallado'. He is a designer and I know that he has some training videos for newbies looking to build minisites. I think it will be perfect for you. Just google him.

    Regards,
