Key design element in the election campaign was a billboard you can find here:…ite_1_.jpg

please don't use exactly this typo and color but there should be a lot of white with bordeaux red and grey elements used for the website as well.

- bg: white

key elements on the startpage:

1. switch english/german
(if you use flags, please use austria for german language and UK for english. or mashup the german/austrian and the uk/usa flags...)

2. header
we like the idea of many pics put into a photo collage - be inspired by the header you can find at

and more here:

3. horizontal navigation
Blog, About me, Parliament, Issues, Interactive, Media, Contact

we also need a submenu for some of the points

4. left column: blog

a) flickr photostream
b) twitter integration

your ideas (maybe sitemap...)

The blog should be optimized for a resultion of at least 1024x768 (not just 800x600).
