I think a permanent identity including logo and webdesign is a great 
idea. I'm not a great designer but I would really like to work on that 
during WBMv7 because I think it's important and saves a lot of time in 
the future.

A more simplistic (maybe monochrome) logo and webdesign that can be 
freshly colored every year could look very nice without much additional 

By changing a few CSS lines and coloring the logo the website would be 
ready for the next Battlemesh.
