Thanks to 99design, we already have a logo and it is attached here: DragonRepublic.zip. You need to use this logo icon but you are not limited to the font and color of the word "Dragon Republic"
You will be designing 2 pages. One is the home page and the other one is the forum page. You will design the home page first and get approved before you move on to the 2nd page.
For the home page, you will need to design a header (with the logo) in it and follow what is in the concept image in the "DR Concept Image". You can look http://www.hellouk.org (our competitor) for reference.
For the forum page, we just need CSS design - means that you will only need to change the color to fit the header.
The website should be friendly but perhaps lean towards a friendly professional.
Overall we are seeking a design that is much better improved compare to the current website http://www.dragonrepublic.org. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comment section and I will follow up everyday. The rest is all yours!!
