Hi seb

No problem for me. I just want not to have to wait for weeks, to keep the
project active and attractive.

I do not agree a lot... On my point of view, graphic design and content
archictecture are 2 different things.
Yes, there might be some graphic elements that are directly linked to the
content architecture, but that might not change the "spirit" of a web
design. For a given site kind (here, a community website), graphic designer
knows the kind of site he has to make.
WebDesign and Architecture can be 2 parallel and concurrent tasks. Once
finished, anything can be modified on the WebDesign part.

This is my point of view. We can discuss it.

Yes ! Interessting. I will see if Nicolas is inspired by one or some of
them. I will tell you.

Thanx you seb.

Open to discussion !
