For week one, we had to create a white space layout. Each team also had to choose a color theme. Our team chose a brown with blue color theme. White space isn't an easy thing for me, but I think I did a pretty good job anyway. You can judge for yourself. Here is the layout I created.
I highly recommend you take a moment and checkout the gallery for the Battle of the Creative teams. It's an opportunity to see some amazing layouts from some very talented people.
