As you may have noticed, the mojoPortal bundled skins are rather plain. This is because I am a developer not a designer. When I say design, I'm talking about color scheme, graphics, fonts, layout, etc. I do know usability but I'm just not that creative visually. Creating a skin in mojoPortal is very easy but you need a good design before you can make a skin.
So I had an idea that maybe I could have a contest and some of you good designers out there might be willing contribute some help for me. The contest is to design a new skin to be used on mojoPortal.com. Anyone who sends a skin will be given credit on a new page I will create to show the skins. I will make it so that there is a link that will open the site in a new window using your skin. Anyone who sends a skin that I think is particularly cool I'll buy you a pint of Guiness or send you $5 whichever you prefer. I will include all the skins in the mojoPortal download listing you in the credits and source files for the skin.
I know thats not much of a bounty but maybe some of you creative types will take up the challenge. What do you think? Anyone interested? Any other ideas for a good bounty?
