I'm a .NET and SharePoint developer that has some personal and work-related blogs that I'm combining into one blog, lifeonplanetgroove.com.
I've found a wordpress theme that I like, called Stardust, that is a two column, fluid layout, with header, footer, and right nav. I'm not looking to adjust the layout or design, just replace the header graphic, change the tab colors, generate a color scheme that I can use to style my links and buttons, etc, and replace a couple of graphics in the theme with something groovy.
Here is a link to a document showing some elements in need of redesign.
Some basic requirements include:
- A header graphic that includes the words "Life On Planet Groove" in a funky font. Should incorporate a gradient-type background that I can slice to stretch with the fluid design.
- Don't want to pay licensing fees for fonts. Please use: Jasmine (for the header), Groovy (if needed for a supplemental font). Am open to others, but see what you can do with those first.
- Header shouldn't be too tall
- The main content area will have a white/off-white background for readability
- I like oranges for base colors. I'm not opposed to pink or fuscia if used very sparingly to accent.
- Less disco, think more cosmic, outerspace, mothershipSome inspiration to get started:
- Cover art for my favorite album, Life On Planet Groove. The cutout faces inside the shapes are fun.
- Bootsy Collins fashionI've never made a contest here before, but have watched and marvelled at all the amazing designs I see created.
