What about a contest for the next debian.org theme?
Currently there is a discussion about a new theme for debian.org going on on -www. Some people presented their ideas and build some mockups while others commented them.
I strongly suggest to let some professional designers and other (not necessarily Debian related) talented people create some mockups, to avoid moving from one outdated and rusty design to the next.
I wonder if we couldn’t open up the process a bit by starting some kind of contest. Skilled webdesigners could create some mockups and we could collect all those and let a vote decide which one to keep.
