Website Background Design Driving me Crazy!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am a software engineer for a living, i can code admin sql dba 's etc but for the life of me i can not design anything . I have the basic layout for my site and i want it to look totally different than anything out there but i am at the point that i need to create a website background before i press further and make more work for myself in the end. Where do you guys recommend I look for some help? I will spend money if i have to get this finished. I want something abstract but within a decent size (don't want to destroy website load times)

layout a wire frame

start from the back and top and look at it like a cube.
