Good work!  The voting system is a very good idea.

Could I suggest making the first stage last a while longer?  This is
simply because MaxM is producing the Information Architecture stage
which may have an impact on the actual designs required.

Have you seen the survey responses I compiled?  There is a short section
on the kinds of design repondents liked, which you might find


I've added your proposal for the process, and a link to your mockups, to
the Wiki.
