comment General feedback on first draft of site design
I've only just got back to playing around with this design some more. I've pretty much followed your example in terms of incorporating the logo and nav into the banner, using the full height of the spire. I removed the IHS logo from the top right, which I think helps the clean look of the banner. One thing I'm wondering though, is whether the banner is now too deep to be usable on all pages other than the homepage. I can't really crop it any more without losing the spire. I'm curious as to how you would handle this type of thing! I've edited the original post with the new image

cheers for the advice. I like what you've done with the image in terms of integrating the menu and logo. This is obviously where I was having difficulty and was being a bit too restricted in my thinking. I'll have a go at both you and Alan's suggestions and see where I go from there! Out of interest, what is the font you've used for menu?

Many thanks for the feedback @Alan Gilbertson, much appreciated. The banner image was probably the main thing I was unsure about, so to have a bit of direction with that is ideal, I'll get to work with your suggestions. I like the idea of overlaying the nav with the spire fitting in :)

comment Using GIMP to redraw an existing low res logo
and @mgkrebbs - thanks again to you both, i've spent a few hours battling with it this evening and have almost got there i think. One thing which I can't seem to fix is the path stroke lines which you can see in my image - is there a way to get rid of these? The new image is at tinypic.com/view.php?pic=212989&s=7
