Thanks for ping on this Jody,

Just a quick note regarding the branding.. yes, still open.  I have some 
emails from designer that I have to deal with as well.  Part of that is 
a guideline doc and overview.  I'm behind on this for sure.

After wrapping up the marketing materials I'd like to turn our sites to 
the other design ideas, etc. - in particular the website ideas that have 
been kicked around for a while in a few places and ways.  As part of 
that I hope we'll have more discussion and comparison of mock-ups, 
samples, ideas, etc.  We had a great meeting a few months back 
(January??) on some of this.

Daniele did you get much feedback on your questions back then?  Jody, do 
you have any specific questions you'd like feedback on?  I did like your 
  current layout :)  But I'm sure the "new" one will be great too. 
Though I see what you were trying to accomplish, maybe we're putting 
cart before horse - talking about overall project site branding when our 
own 'main' one isn't solidified?

Anyway, this is quick braindump before bed - hope I can follow up 
further in the morning.
