This is my first all CSS site from scratch. http://www.americansportsheroes.org
I’ve designed other sites (tables and sliced images and modified css templates), but this one is all from scratch. My question is about making a site look fresh, current and impactful with the use of gradients, stripes, images etc. I notice my designs are flat and lack pizazz. Any suggestions on improving this site would be helpful. I know there are a gazillion tutorials out there but haven’tfound any to make background images like the ones on http://pinecrestelementary.dadeschools.net/new Help.
