Thanks for swift replies, both. Note that we could ask for a designer,
who could help us with branding and visual communication, and/or we
could ask for a web designer, who could help with CSS or a wordpress
theme. With luck, we might find someone who is skilled at both. But we
should decide at this stage which we think is more important.
