I took some time to familiarize myself with Orchard, it looks like it's pretty easy once you get used to it.
-Color palette is still being decided, Purple is #438, Gold is #EEBB11
-New navigation background/button (a:hover), as well as rotating "featured item" background and header backgrounds, css changes made to remove blue color
-Branding removed, logo added, css modified to fix margins/padding
-extensive logos/graphics created and implemented.
Still needs to be done:
-in-depth info on benefits, usage, links, numbers, etc
-Fix some minor display issues
-Google Analytics Module (account already set up under Heath's name for ConferenceNY.com, would like to tie into same account, have info if needed)
-Make logo clickable for home page.
