I have designed a web page that looks like this:
I'm not a designer, and neither is my boss but he has asked me to design and code a web page.
I'm happy with the header (and it's good inspiration :D), but my boss has forced me to place this ugly backbone graphic next to the the navigation buttons, and I have to have it. So I did it, I tried to tell him that people don't love it and it's ugly navigation - but he says it has to be like that!
My problem is that I haven't any idea how to style the heading/content title to be aesthetically pleasing and make it stand out and draw attention.
I'm thinking maybe a cartoon bubble will be good? Maybe just an arrow? What would be good and easy for a beginner to create?
Additionally, I'm trying to figure out what font and style will make the text look good and easy to read?
My main question is, what effect and image could I use for the heading background, and how can I style it to stand out better?
I'm thinking maybe place it in it's own container with a border around it, and style the text with an inset shadow?
Maybe something like:
Please could you suggest ways for me to make the heading stand out better and make the text more readable.
