My original design had each image on a suitable fragment of paper -- different colours and
textures and, where it made sense, the appropriate type of paper. I started creating
a piece of lineflow (remember that?) for the Software link;
The links would be "randomly" placed on the screen... However, in the end I abandoned the idea and just stuck with simple images drawn transparently on one background and in a vertical stack.
I get the whole graphics thing pretty much out of the way after the front page and stick mostly to text.
During the site's development, I decided Frames were a good idea, a useful aid to navigation (although not so great for bookmarking) but I didn't want to interfere with the main page's layout so I've made it as small and un-obtrusive as possible. I also deliberately made it purely textual (although I played around a bit with the text's case and the counter is a graphic), in contrast with the main page which is purely graphical.
In all of this, I am hoping for Substance over Style.
