I propose that we keep the design of the site as striped down and simple as possible. Classy. I’m taking cues from Jon’s ideas for the invite card.

Here’s a first draft. What do you think? Note that this is just a sketch of the site design, not a finished product. The final site will probably differ from the sketch in some significant ways, but this should be enough of a representation to get your juices flowing. I’m trying to minimize font shifts, using two font sizes (though a third smaller size may come into play on the blog pages for some minor information). The challenge would be keeping all the pages as simple in style as this welcome page.

Once we agree on a sketched design, I will start implementing it on the real site: For now, what you see there does not reflect any sketches here.
