I'm looking at it, but haven't bothered doing anything yet... seems to me the best way of doing it (unless Haight desperately wants to do it alone) would be to solve it as if it was a challenge. I'm not very experienced with html coding (nor drupal), but I know photoshop fairly well. Others have probably done more with html than me but less with photoshop.
Unless there's some genious out there who knows both design, coding and photoshop better than the rest (and feel like putting in the hours), I suggest we cooperate, brainstorm etc. together and see what we come up with. I'm more than willing to come up with ideas and image suggestions if someone tells me what we're going for.
Is it a frontpage similar to that of INTPc we're after (with new posts etc) or just a more flashy, static front page?
