::Should I pretend to be straight to get such job?::
Nobody should pretend not to be what they are!
::"...I believe this candidate is the most suitable of the lot: right attitude, shows professionalism, gives a good vibe, has a great folio,... however it puts me off a little that he is gay..."::
Not sure if it's the same in Australia but here in the UK you'd have good grounds for legal action as it's illegal to discriminate on your ethnicity, race, age, disability or sexual orientation and that e-mail is as good as a written confession.
I've worked for a few LGBTI organisations and publications and I'm happy to say that I have as it makes no difference to me and if anyone gets offended by that then they can go f*ck themselves.
Fact is that there are some small minded bigots out there who do see it as an issue.
My ex-employer was one who'd often openly spout on about "these gays" and I'm sure it'd have been an issue to him about his choice of employee.
That's one of the reasons I told him to stick his job up this arse.
If you've got the skills and the right attitude then you'll do well despite people like that.

From reading it I don't think the $200k price was just for the design, rather to roll it out and re-brand the councils assets such as signage, stationary and stuff.
The design including the style guide cost $42k.
As for the designer you need to bare in mind that working for clients like councils is the epitome of 'design by committee' and anything that goes through that process rarely turns out to be anything other than uninspired and insipid.
Been there, done it.

::@scotty must be awesome to see your work realised at that scale!::
Yep mate. It's a buzz alright. :)
The company I work with are no strangers to large scale and are what you'd call "real artists".
Check this puppy out.
Imagine the white page syndrome on this scale.

@Scotty - It's not really obvious but if you hover over your avatar and go to Account Settings from the drop down, then go to the Invitations tab. The tab will have the number of invites you have next to it, e.g. Invitations (1).
The other way is if you click on a prospect's profile and you have invites there will be a Draft button at the top of the screen somewhere.
