FWIW, I asked some coworkers to share their impressions of the top 7 designs, and here's what was said about this one:
* "#14 is kind of nice. It appears to be shown on a wide screen, so I wonder exactly how it would look on a smaller screen."
* "# 14 - Nice look. Simple, seems to work. Doesn't wow me but overall pretty nice."
* "#14 - There is too much going on in the top area. I don't like the bullets next to the navigation text - too busy."
* "#14 - I like it. Simple and elegant, although the top could be tightened up. Wish we could change our navigation to look like that without waiting for the redesign."
