I need a template designed for my new pligg based site. Pligg uses Smarty templates so if you have examples of previous work you've done using Smarty, that would be a plus.
Design wise, I'd like the site to be a little web 2.0-ish in look and feel but not overboard (please no BETA! badges and the like). The template should be as light on images as possible but if the image is essential to the design, I'm completely okay with that. Use of the famfamfam iconsets is preferred but not required. Color scheme should be light and inviting with 2 main colors and some accents. I'd prefer the background color remain white but if you can convince me otherwise, please do by all means.
Given that you are the designer and I am but the uncreative webmaster, you will have *almost* complete authority as to what the final layout will look like. I say almost because if I don't, I'll end up with...well never mind you get the idea.
I hope that is enough detail. For the record, the site is not another Digg clone, but it uses the same general idea of positive and negative feedback. Also if you must bid outside my budget, please keep it in the same ballpark. The site will have a credit to you in the footer for the design, linking to your website and/or portfolio. :)
