This theme is awesome! A few minor bugs that come to mind, though:

- spacing between node info and nody body: definitely needs fixing.
- the 'user login' block (i.e. the top block on the left) needs to be
in line with the mission statement (i.e. the top of the main content
- the primary links look very uncomfortable perched on that blue line
ATM: gives the impression that there's a CSS bug (although I assume
there isn't). They need to be aligned with the bottom border line
better, they need to match the border line's colour better, and they
could probably use a bit more spacing between each link as well.
- the footer area seems a bit incongruous with the rest of the theme:
the filled-in pastel blue rectangle thing looks like a hangover from
bluemarine. Perhaps we could make the footer background a bit lighter,
or just give it a top border instead of a background colour? Or
perhaps it just needs some rounded corners.
- perhaps we should move the search bar down, so that it's perched on
the right-most end of the line?

Overall, I give it 4. This would make for a fantastic new 4.8 default theme.
