BigCrawl.com is a pay per click search engine that needs to have the homepage re-designed with a nicer logo. The design will not only be made up of different sections but RSS or Ajax feeds of videos, links, news, entertainment, new movie releases etc, so that will really 75% of the design. So I need someone who can put the feeds in. The news feeds are already done: see site.
Obviously I would need the search box coded to the rest of the site after the contest is over. The search box is pretty much the only thing on the homepage that links to the rest of the site other than the PPC Client login which should be better promoted on the new design.

ONE PAGE ONLY: However, I added an html page that you may use to link from the homepage if you need to in order to add flare and greatness to the site. The index is at http://www.bigcrawl.com and the extra page is http://www.bigcrawl.com/videos.html
I am looking to keep the news feeds, add video feeds for news, entertainment, online games/videos or let the user select which feeds to view using a menu or dropdown. I want an array of constantly updating content all over the page. Another great script to install would be a weather and local news box that can tell where the user is and display their stats for local weather etc.
Good examples are yahoo and msn.com, but my site is turnkey so I want auto updated information, videos, the latest big movie, concerts, sports etc on my home page. I want advertising space at the top, bottom, inset as a square like on yahoo and most of all I WANT TO BE ABLE TO SELL ADVERTISING THAT WILL SHOW FLASH ON BOTH SIDES OF THE WEBPAGE like MySpace!
There are a lot of scripts out there with a lot of different kinds of content so I cannot be real specific. I just want the homepage to jump out at people with interesting content, I want them to be able to see that its a search engine, look at Yahoo, you can see the search box easily and I LOVE the way the logo is near it and they can change their logo for holidays etc. I would like to be able to to that but would have to have the logos made with flash and hired out.
Quite the challenge so I am listing the normal prize but will double it for the winner if you astound me. The web is competitive these days so we need sites that people will actually stay at for a while and look around AND COMEBACK.
