Need logo / page layout for the site (several pages) in english and german. Design should be light-weight, snappy, and 'fun'.
oracle.olymp.org / orakel.olymp.org
The Internet Oracle (formerly The Usenet Oracle) is gaining a 'real' internet presence. While there are two existing sites (http://cgi.cs.indiana.edu/~oracle/index.cgi and http://olymp.org/~orakel/ ) both of those are of very basic design and offer no or limited functionality. The new site (development version visible on oracle-dev.appspot.com) will provide the Oracle with a solid web presence, and needs a new look. The look will have to work in multiple languages (german and english for this contest, text will be provided), multiple browsers, and be easily maintainable.
The service itself is geared towards the general population (ages 10 to 80), and allows the creation of 'funny' anonymous question-answer pairs (as exemplified on the dev site, or on http://cgi.cs.indiana.edu/~oracle/digests.cgi ).
The site needs to be light in tone and accessible, possible themes are greek temples, all things related to oracles, or whatevery you can come up with that I like. Hint: I like http://www.google.com ;-)
- Needs to load fast.
- Needs to be maintainable by amateur
- Needs to work in multiple languages
- Don't clutter. No wall of text.
