I’m building an awesome new blog for our very own June Steckler, and I’m looking around for a design program that won’t cost me $500. When I do my own stuff, I usually just hand-code stuff with CSS and HTML, but that won’t work for what she wants. I need some actually pretty pretty.
I realize that the right thing to do at this point is sub-contract to an actual designer, but I’m working in trade for original awesome artwork, and I’m not sure I can really offer somebody 1/3 of a painting.
Anybody use anything on a mac that they really like for web design, that is either cheap or free?
As always, if you find anything quirky or broken, let me know. Especially those of you who are using Internet Explorer.

If someone wants to take some screenshots with IE and email them to me, I would appreciate it.
Also, this is the thread to submit tagline suggestions. Yes, the people have spoken, and taglines are back. Rejoice, you miscreants and anarchists.

If any of you miss the old design, here’s your nostalgic look back:
