Front page adjustments [Daily Theme]

I'm using the daily theme, and I'd like to change the frontpage a bit.
This is my current frontpage.

And this is what I had in mind.

Does anybody know how to do this? And can help me with this?
If this is a lot of work.. then I'm also willing to pay for your help.

Thank you.
