How adamtoth started their web page design journey

Summary

Header graphic, color scheme, and a few complementing images needed to turn a standard wordpress blog theme (Stardust) into a funkified version for my technical/personal blog. Think Bootsy Collins, Maceo, P-Funk inspired. Aim for ratio of 2% jazz, 98% funky stuff (refined, but with heavy dose of funkadelia).

Company name

Life on Planet Groove

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

I'm a .NET and SharePoint developer that has some personal and work-related blogs that I'm combining into one blog, lifeonplanetgroove.com.

I've found a wordpress theme that I like, called Stardust, that is a two column, fluid layout, with header, footer, and right nav. I'm not looking to adjust the layout or design, just replace the header graphic, change the tab colors, generate a color scheme that I can use to style my links and buttons, etc, and replace a couple of graphics in the theme with something groovy.

Here is a link to a document showing some elements in need of redesign.

Some basic requirements include:
- A header graphic that includes the words "Life On Planet Groove" in a funky font. Should incorporate a gradient-type background that I can slice to stretch with the fluid design.
- Don't want to pay licensing fees for fonts. Please use: Jasmine (for the header), Groovy (if needed for a supplemental font). Am open to others, but see what you can do with those first.
- Header shouldn't be too tall
- The main content area will have a white/off-white background for readability
- I like oranges for base colors. I'm not opposed to pink or fuscia if used very sparingly to accent.  
- Less disco, think more cosmic, outerspace, mothershipSome inspiration to get started:
- Cover art for my favorite album, Life On Planet Groove. The cutout faces inside the shapes are fun.
- Bootsy Collins fashionI've never made a contest here before, but have watched and marvelled at all the amazing designs I see created.

Thanks!

Adam

Wants

- See description for additional requirements
- Need a header graphic with "Life on Planet Groove" in funky font.
- Need a color scheme for tabs and border under tabs
- Need a color palette so I can style my hyperlinks and other elements
- Need to replace graphic at lower bottom in footer. Need something funky here.
- Need replacement for the dangling graphic off the header, am open to anything.
- Shapes in the header, planets, moons, rocket ships, comets, things of that nature, to fill out empty space.
- Vector source files for any vector shapes/objects
- I'm using this blog for about 50% personal use, and 50% technical content, with a goal to always market my development skills through this (just keep that in mind). 

Don't want

- Heavy disco theme
- Not looking for a DJ promotion style site
- Not too dark, the main content area needs to have a light background
- Less of the cartoony Parliament and Funkadelic album cover styles
- Tall header
- Anything that forces me to rework the layout heavily
- Please don't spend any time on the sidebar, icons, calendar colors, RSS images. I'd like the effort put into making a nice header, color theme, and replacing the two mentioned images.
