I'm not really thrilled about that idea. Marketing needs to be a unified 
message, and if you split it up you'll likely end up with a hodgepodge. 
You also risk everybody doing the easy parts and nobody working on the 
parts that cost some energy.

A contest for website ideas (with a bunch of webpages in a layout and 
with some good text and graphics) sounds better. It's more likely to 
result in one of more visions we can live with. If you're interested in 
new names for Zope, logos, and so on, that's fine, as you can present it 
in the context of a larger message. Currently I'm not at all convinced 
we need an additional name for Zope 3 or work on the logo, but a good 
presentation could definitely change my mind.

A mockup of a homepage and a bunch of subpages, together with the 
textual part of the marketing message shouldn't be too big a hindrance 
to get a few good submissions.
