Header and Navigation design

Hi,

I want to redesign the header and navigation on this site: http://bit.ly/125UsJF

What are your opinions on how I can make it look better? Since the the Logo is rectangular, I have the toughest time coming up with an idea to make it something I am comfortable with.

Thanks!!!

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Looks good already, Keep it simple my marketing professor would always say.

I wouldn't change it much other than using a white background for the Facebook letter f.
Add an address, map... where are you located. Whats your coverage.

Site needs further development clearly but looks nice.

I've looked at the same thing for YEARS now and want a re-freshed header with things laid out differently than they are.

Refreshing a site design may not be a simple proposition. Most well known brands will never radically change anything.

You might want to play around with background colors, font types, height, width...

Check out templates, might serve as an inspiration... many event related themes here: http://themeforest.net/category/wordpress/entertainment/events
