The current site is built using the Drupal open source CMS framework (drupal.org) and the design needs to be created as specifically for this CMS as possible.
The design needs to be flexible enough for us to apply to different types of pages or content that will be appearing on the site (e.g., blogs, articles, videos, and static pages like contact pages, case studies, etc.).
The design needs to be fixed width, clean and simple and ideally around the 960px range.
Please keep graphical devices to a sensible level.
For any graphical backgrounds that you employ in your design, please be aware that with the Drupal CMS, content and block columns don't always stay the same width or height (e.g. with different font sizes), so please ensure that your design provides extra area for background images to allow for that variability.
Please use browser generated, "web-safe" fonts in the main content areas of the site and for buttons, menu links or section headings.
Finally, we're looking overall for a design that is graceful in all situations and in most modern browsers (IE, FireFox, Chrome, Opera, Safari), so please don't push the envelope too much
We will need the final design supplied as a layered RGB file. We would prefer that in PNG format for Fireworks but will accept a PhotoShop PSD file. Please give all the layers you use meaningful names and remove any unnecessary layers.
