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

I have updated my brief in hopes it will be clearer to all. Since this is my first time requesting a website, I think I may have been too detailed and may have confused or scared some of you off. I’m cutting it down to basics here.

LOGO FILES

WEBSITE MOCK-UP FILE
I am provide this file so you can see more or less where I would like things arranged. Nevertheless, font, colors, buttons, boxes structures and so forth should be the designers creativity along with the suggestions I will make below. http://rapidshare.com/files/1511865…1.xls.html

TASK
We are looking for a website design with finished XHTML/CSS. However, we will not sacrifice the design for a coded site as we can always have the site coded later. We are guaranteeing the design prize at $600 but will give an additional $400 totaling $1000k if the designer can provide a SEO coded site but again NOT NECESSARY. By coded, I don’t mean the functionality of the databases or search option as the site will be dynamically driven. By coding I mean the coding of the design itself, forum and navigation of the websites template’s menus. IT MUST BE CLEAN SEO FRIENDLY VALIDATED CODE. DESIGNERS w/no coding definitely welcomed as again we can always get the site coded later.

A few examples of other coupon sites for structure purposes are: flamingoworld.com, cabincoupon.com, couponmom.com, couponbastard.com. I am giving you these so you have an idea of the concept of the website I need. However, please do not copy ANYTHING from these sites as I do not like them.
