This is exactly what I meant with not being isolated. A graphic
designer might come up with something that looks nice, but doesn't fit
with the community. And then it would end up in wasted efforts - the
designer offered his time creating something that is then not used in
turn. Nobody would gain in this szenario.

If we make a List with all points what we want to have, even 1 single Designer should fit it all.  
(Continuing at the end).

Well - I'm not aware of any problems, esp. not time-out ones. Maybe
you forgot the port?
( )

Why the port? It's a real pain...

**** To sum up-

If we are clear about our workflow, I can request my colleague to
come in and help. I'd like a clarity and consensus on this point,

Tell your friend that his input is appreciated - but that the finally
implemented design might be tweaked/improved by the design team (it might be
replaced by another proposal too).
But the final result will be the communities web design - not his donation
(or how he might call it).

Yes. And to keep "friction loss" small, it's necessary to join the
team during the creation phase, have an iterative approach that
involves the community early, before spending days/weeks on details.

I know this will not be liked by many, but a Webdesign can't be done by to many people. It's one of 
the golden rules of a Webdesigner or a Graphics Designer in all, if you get to much influence it 
will be shit. I know, and I'm cracking my head to adopt the normal Designworkflow to the OSC.

I have a proposition (This is in the making for the moment, I have to wait till FOSDEM to fix up 
some bugs) which would help us all. We should build a little team of the talentest and brightest 
man we have for the Website. They will propose on the base of the Community 1 or several ideas and 
will work openly. They will decide some little things in the group, but the community has every 
time a possibility to interact. (Like this cook thingy says, to many cooks.....).

If anyone wants to join me (through mail/Fosdem/call) it would be grate.
