Well you are a graphic designer so that should be helpful in the creation process for the layout and themes. Before you start that you need a more business/web designer perspective.
I can give you some pointers (large business/finance/marketing background) as I am interested in creating things as well. However, I can't really help you till you have a more clear vision of what you want to do (is this a business to generate revenue through advertising? selling a product? subscriptions? or just a free forum/community?).
I would grab a blank paper if I were you and write down keywords that span features, sections, topics etc. (Example of what your paper might have: Corruption, forum, chat, social network, art, music, facebook, truth, illuminati etc) and try to refine the vision from there (even post that here if you can).
Make sure that if this idea is feasible (profitable or just has potential to create a community or...) that you follow through!
