Hi David,

Hi, :-)

If I may make so bold as to suggest this, but have you considered
letting Christian and me finish the initial form of the website
content before re-designing it all? :-D

Of course... but my response was mainly speaking to Christoph's proposal [1].

I did write:

[...] my main intention is to
demonstrate (what I think is) improved spacing and header + footer.

... which is effectively CSS. I'm more than happy to help out in that
respect but at the moment it's not clear (to me at least) what is
being worked toward in this area - is there a finalised visual design
that has been agreed on? I am aware that you are very busy working on
the content, which is why I made a reasonably conservative visual
design proposal that would be limited to CSS changes. The IA stuff was
merely a very quick attempt to reconcile the homepage widgets you
proposed and what Christoph proposed in his mockup. In no way do I
want to suggest that my quickly thrown together filler content is
supposed to constitute a credible argument against all the hard work
that Christian and your good self have been doing. The IA stuff is
long-term, the design itself is short term, but they're mangled
together in one mockup which is a response to Christoph's mockup.
Sorry if that wasn't clear :)

In short, I'm happy to help out with CSS, but
a) I don't know what visual design you're working toward
b) If there is no definite visual design that has been decided on,
then we need to work through that here and on the design list. This
can be independent of the website launch date if you're wanting to go
live ASAP.
c) Even if I got access to make CSS changes, I wouldn't want to start
before we have some agreement on the design list.

I hope that makes this conversation seem less radical :)
