Which is why I said "a common _base_", "a common _ground_". Very
different sites look great indeed, but this could just be an

very week! Not to mention Russia PP, Poland PP, etc.

about each others: "hi, we're the German guys, we've chosen the orange
color because [...]; we'd like to propose [...] etc."

Another example: I absolutely don't know anything about the PP logo! Do you?
It's a P, it's a sail, and then what? What's its history? Who drew it?
why the circle? Do you like it in black and white? would colors be
welcome? would gradients be welcome? would any text be welcome (for
