We are looking to modify existing themes (if this is easiest) and basically drop all graphics and have the content "floating" on black. There is exceptions to this with the forums, however the themes we're choosing to modify already have the desired presentation and will fit right in.
Another element we want is a nice menu. We can produce the images for this menu. We're assuming this would be a flash menu laid out horizontally with flyouts.
A rough draft of what we're looking for can be viewed here:

While we understand that the information given here is not 100% complete, the added information will need to come from a conversation or by asking questions. We've never handled a project like this so we're unsure all the elements needed to document.
