It looks like the web rebuild team wants to build the website themselves and we seem to have the skills we need from volunteers...

>> Thank you for your comments, and rest assured that Hugo is not a recent graduate. Hugo has been a graphic designer for over 12 years, and he graduated with his BA in Graphic Design in 2001. Hugo has produced websites for previous clients; however, he will need assistance with developing a website from the ground-up as he has always worked with a web development team to produce the sites that he has worked on.

I see that his design work is solid, but I did not find any examples of him building content-rich websites in his portfolio online, but I might be looking in the right place. Can you ask Samantha or Hugo for a link to his portfolio? I'd also like to understand what is his experience is in HTML/CSS, as well as his understanding the concept of adaptive design and building sites that are friendly to different monitor               sizes and mobile. If so, awesome. If not, I'd prefer to hire an expert in this area. It will not cost much. The               OWASP home page is something that I feel should be well polished and modern.

We will be billing back projects/chapters/conferences/initiatives  $15/hour for Hugo's work to cover his costs and funding (if no budget is available) can be requested here: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Funding
