I have made some logos and banners and menus for my sites layout using Gimp. The technique I am using is really simple. I choose one font for the name of the site, it is a really good one from my fonts directory. I add some kind of an script for it from the Script-Fu and using gradients and stuff create the logo. It usually has some layers so I add some kind of transparent picture from stock images and work on it and make it look good in the background. Then I just use another font and make the same things for the menu, like news articles reviews etc. and make it smaller to fit into the logo place. I create how the menu look when on mouse over and when on mouse out, and later just cut it and create a html file out of it and integrate it into my layout. Later using colour picker, I choose the colours for use in CSS, links, backgrounds and stuff. And my simple layout just look great :P Gimp rules ;)
