1st of all you've got to have a idea of how it more o less should look.
2nd you fire up your graphical proggie and make the layout.
and then you pick up a big bowl, throw in the PNG's and XML, stirr it a bit, and voila;

Just start with pictures, (use layers, lots of layers) after that you can crop the pictures and use xml to place the buttons and so on.

Maybe there's something wrong with his server, cos I haven't heard anything about it.
