Hi Carl,

The live site is at http://ipython.org/ , and the source code is at
https://github.com/ipython/ipython-website .

In terms of the logo, I think the only visually distinctive thing about
IPython are the prompts, which inspired the existing IP[y] logo. We could
also have some reference to the yellow & blue Python logo (
http://python.org/), but on the other hand, we're pitching this as an
environment for data exploration and interactive computing in general, not
only as a Python shell.

I've CCed in the dev list - Carl has offered to design some sort of
banner-style logo for the top of our website (see the sites for matplotlib
and sphinx for examples). Any suggestions on what it should look like? Do we
have any theme it should fit in with?

Finally, don't spend too long doing this, because it's been suggested that
if IPython gets some funding, some of it might go on professional design for
this sort of thing. I understand that this isn't definite, though.
