comment Rebranding a website to get a professional look
Do your research and ask "Why?" a lot. Why are the buses green? Why do they have their current graphic profile? What needs and purposes does it fulfill? What was the idea behind the rainbow? Etc. etc. Then base your design on those reasons/answers instead of off the current design. And if those reasons suck, then make up better ones that the bus company might not have considered. For example: "the buses are largely green because they're eco-friendly". You shouldn't lie of course, just find things to highlight and use as selling points.

comment What are good places to start learning web typography and layout?
Hmm, that's true. I suppose it might not be as up to date anymore since the advent of the responsive web. But grids are an important part of typography and have been given too little consideration in a lot of modern web design. So I suppose this article in combination with learning about responsive web design should give you a decent start.

comment When designing, what techniques can be used for determining if the right amount of “fluff” has been added?
Great answer! Just wanted to add that I wouldn't call the Kenwood ad minimalist in any way or form. Minimalism is about stripping the expression of something to its bare essentials, to only those elements that strongly communicate something to the viewer. The Kenwood ad may have little actual "fluff" but it still isn't minimalist. Why? Because there are a bunch of informative elements that don't really need to be there. That combined with as you say, bad composition and typography, creates something that is simply not very well designed nor minimalist. Ironically, neither is this comment.

Ok yeah, that seems likely. When is it that the problem arises? After exporting from Illustrator or before as well?

comment How do I find a range of colors (ex. different blues) that will contrast well with another range of colors (ex. reds, yellows etc)?
I'm assuming you have but will ask anyway, have you tried Kuler? Using the complimentary mode seems like it would do what you want.
