    To me, if you put something on a webpage, such as information in a footer, it has to be worthwhile ot have it there. I wouldn't worry about the importance of it. The contact form is always worthwhile to have there so if you're worried about that, then don't. If people see it they won't think it's not important. It would still have the same meaning to the users.

    Personally, I prefer the second, but it's more architectural, which appeals to my aesthetic. Oh, and to respond to your response to her, I would keep the image and date on the left as that's more what people are used to.

    Are you doing these as web fonts and have licenses for them? Or are you going to have fallbacks (I don't have either of those in my installed fonts...)

    Nope - in fact, here's a link to a local youth group site, and as you can see, it's pretty dark - it used to be more so, but they thankfully got rid of the grunge look which was popular for a while. Dark colors and can look very rich if done right....

    Probably, though again, I would go a number of shades darker and/or mute the colors more. You'll need a decent contrast to not cause eye strain and/or detract from your content....

    Like Dave said, you'd give people more to think because most people aren't used to seeing a date on the right side. It may not be as intuitive.

    If I were you, I'd experiment with it, see what it's like having the date on the right, then comparing the various layout samples and go with whatever you feel is the most usable.

    I was thinking about it and then I thought about how it would be kind of messy w/ non-justified text - which I'm not a fan of. W/ it on the right, there's a clean line, which is good.

    I think that the contrast, visibility, and size of it will give it enough importance, as well.
