[fellowship] Source artwork and build low-fi mockups

We need some low-fi design mockups to help get us started thinking about the fellowship site's look/feel. They should be substantially derived from MDN's look/feel and should include the header/footer already on MDN. They should help developers understand layout & typography and should help identify gaps where we need art.

See preliminary copy here:

Here is one possible approach to take with the design. We discussed this in our kickoff meeting this morning and agreed this approach is the most feasible approach if we want to keep to a Q1 site launch schedule. 

WRT art, I think placement can be tweaked; if someone has a better idea, alternatives are welcome. Here is the kind of image I think would work well there: https://www.flickr.com/photos/roland/10081117356

This mockup is just a screenshot of working code, integrated into static templates in a kuma branch: https://github.com/hoosteeno/kuma/tree/1126583

We agreed that art and copy will be _final_ by 2015-02-16. That is also a good date for the layout to be final, since final development and template integration will happen starting the following week.
I still like this approach. One piece of feedback: our call to action should at least rival "share this" for attention. I think "apply now" should probably be a big blue button as well.

I may not have time this week to do anything more on the mockup. If I do I will make sure the branch is clean (it is clean now). 

For this bug, we are waiting on Diane to finalize copy and choose artwork for the slot identified in the mockup, and then we can finish coding. Stephanie will pick up wherever I leave off after this Friday.

yes - Friday 2/13 is the agreed-upon deadline for copy and art per our task list:

The copy will be within the copy doc (also referenced in this bug and on the wiki) https://docs.google.com/a/mozilla.com/document/d/1B2zng59WQD14I9NcB0OX8xb2sM9v-fx77gZ4hxIAVLQ/edit

Art ideas (not my strong point here):
1) https://www.flickr.com/photos/roland/10081117356 (found by Justin and I like - we must attribute per CC license)
2) http://stormyscorner.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/5544288592_56ff8861d5_o.jpg (Rob Hawkes - I am sure we can enlist his permission - I like the 'wizard'-like pose here and HTML5 swag)
3) https://www.flickr.com/photos/ianloic/2228267679" title="Mozilla: Hack by Ian McKellar, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2306/2228267679_1dd269010c_s.jpg (no face but kind of fun...if possibly now or soon to be off-brand...)

let me know if these don't work and why so I can continue to hone in on this.

We had a handoff this morning -- :shobson will take this from here. There are quite a few small (and some large) items on the TODO list (https://devengage.etherpad.mozilla.org/fellowship-handoff-20150217). 

From here on, all change requests should be in comments on this bug.

Thanks all!
awesomeness - ping or NeedInfo me any time :)
Is this the official URL for the application? http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1998528/PILOT-Developer-Fellowship-Application
