Design Profiles

Over at AdaptiveThemes we've been hammering out how to give our designers better tools for designing for Drupal. At first we thought about a set of briefs, then that grew into packages (brief + stock images, logo etc) and then I struck on the idea of Design Profiles.

A Design Profile is a package including a sample site (say a blog, business site, Ubercart site etc), PSD templates, a detailed brief and stock images (sample logo, photos etc).

"Ultra Light" User Experience / User Interface Design & Drupal for Startups

I run a group of tech entrepreneurs called Ultra Light Startups ( and I'm interested in the use of Drupal in startups for several reasons. Many of our members' startups are either already built on Drupal or they are evaluating use of Drupal for a project. Several of our members are also active in the NYC Drupal community. Also, after hosting an event on Open Source CMS's last fall, I became convinced that Drupal was the right platform for several of my own projects, including a planned major upgrade to the Ultra Light Startups site.

Visual Designer | Club Real Estate

Employment type: 

Our social networking start-up needs a visual designer (preferably in the San Francisco Bay Area) on a part-time consulting basis to design the visual elements of our site (both the frontpage and secondary pages) before it is launched.

header clickable in Firefox not Safari

I am having a problem with the header of this website: Except for the 3 small logo's the whole header should be clickable and direct to the frontpage.

It is clickable in Firefox but not Safari (except for the 3 logo's that I have defined in page.tpl.php). This worked until recently also in Safari and I have no idea what is going on. Would anybody know how to make the header clickable again? I assume I need to adjust something in page.tpl.php?

Thanks and best,

Employment type: 

The original theme implementer for used a tables based layout that we would like to get rid of. We are looking for a CSS styler who knows Drupal theming to quickly update the main site layout to a tableless theme. Needs to look the same, just without all the tables.
