How philosdev started their web page design (coded) journey

Summary

A logo (JPEG, GIF, PNG, or other popular bitmap formats) and template (HTML + CSS) for philoscafe.com.

Company name

Philos Café

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Desired Color Scheme:
white or very light colored background, blues, pale yellow. logo lettering red or black.

Desired Style:
I like the look and feel of sitepoint.com, 37signals.com, and digg.com. However, such styles would need to be adapted for what I described above.

Accepted File Formats:
JPEG, GIF, PNG, or other popular bitmap formats, HTML, CSS

Site purpose:

Philoscafe.com will serve as a site for the discussion of interesting philosophical questions. This "virtual cafe" is inspired by the Café Philos, or "Philosophy Cafes," that originated in Paris, France. There will be a community blog and discussion forums.

Overall look:

I am looking for a site design that is "modern"-looking ("Web 2.0" - simple, clean), but with a touch of "Old World."

The layout and color scheme can be very simple. A light background with blue div's would work.

Use a serif font for the logo. I would like a graphic, such as an image of Rodin's "Thinker" wearing a beret, next to the letters. It can be as simple as a photo of the famous statue, with the beret drawn and pasted on his head. I'm open to other creative suggestions, and I'm flexible if you have interesting ideas for graphics.

Note that the url is philoscafe.com (without the accent), but I would like to see the French spelling of "Café" in the logo.

Site structure and layout:
Home has a blog with user comments
Logo at the top left
Navigation links in a panel on the left side, OR from left-to-right underneath the logo (pages will include Home, Forums, Learn)
Login on the left side
The content should take up most of the screen
There will be a small ads section on the right side

The deliverables should include standards-compliant, clean-looking CSS+HTML and graphics for the logo.

References and Examples:
Nice side profile of "The Thinker"

Thanks, and if there are any questions, please don't hesitate to comment.
