I chose the “warm, cheerful layout” tutorial. I found it to be very time consuming. It seemed like the work flow could have been more organized. For example, I would have made the specific colors and gradients and added them to the pallet instead of making them each time. I found the 24 Col Grid to be confusing, especially when the tutorial instructed one to add more guides.
However, I did learn some new photoshop tricks, so all in all it was time well spent.
Is it perfect? No way. It’s reasonable proximity.
