I am developing a sharepoint site and need some help to improve the layout. We have a 3 column layout with a good bit of content and looking for it to be more visually appealing. Specifically, looking to do the following:1. make the layout more engaging to the users (colors and graphics), 2. remove some of the standard sharepoint components (recycle bin and all site content) that is taking up space on the left column. able to adjust the font size and color of the web part headers that is standard sharepoint sizes. 3. any other custom adjustments to make the site more engaging (colors, fonts backgrounds, etc..)
To be considered, please show examples of sharepoint sites that you have customized and what is your sharepoint capabilties. We are using sharepoint 2010.
