My current site is: http://www.mmavillage.com  

I am letting the designers have free creative reign with this. However, please look at the current site so you can see the table structure in use currently.  I need CSS driven background images like what you see on the home page, for the video pages as well.  I will need a new set of mouseover tabs for site also .. the one on there now are from youtube.  I would prefer the tabs to be CCS driven background images so I can control the text on the tab.

I also need a logo. A distinguishable and powerful logo to go with the site design.  Since this is a community site, the logo must convey community ... My idea would be to have 5 to 10 guys and girls in different martial arts uniforms in the logo .. with maybe one of them doing a side kick straight out of the image in a 3D look and feel.

One of the main aspects of this site is the HUGE video library idexed on the site.  I will want the design to accentuate the video aspect.  Also, the video display page needs a set of graphics to wrap around the video ... the graphics should match the design of the site.  Example video page:
http://www.mmavillage.com/govid/1/WjRpTNWv7dY

I also need a flash controler to show Youtube videos on the site,
that will allow me to be able to control the video behavior.  If possible I wouild like the flash controler to be able to control the URL destination if the video is clicked. If this is not possible, then forget this part of the project!

I will also be looking for a Wordpress design, t-shirts, and custom icon graphics from the same designer if this goes well. The winner will also have a steady stream of new project to work on if they desire the extra work!

Lastly ... there are 2 other Martial arts community sites that I am aware of for you to review.  http://www.kickgen.com and http://www.saigoworld.com Both of these sites are ugly ... black backgrounds with white letters .. simply horrible.  Clearly I do not want that ... but the martial arts themes presented are good.  It is the themes I want you to look at when consider the design of my site.
