So I started to re-route my concept just a little... I started by ridding everything of color, and I began to work with structure and layout only. The color came later, which I found to be extremely helpful. In terms of the user control, I want them to veiw both essay at the same time. They won't be able to veiw Vignelli's essay without McCoy's essay next to it. The gallery links for each designer can be viewed from the essay page, the gallery page, and the home page. The navigation bar at the top right of the screen will always be available to the user.
