What's the best way to build a website on Wordpress, if the website design has a unique layout?

I am working on a proposal for a website, to be built on Wordpress, that will not follow a "standard" Wordpress layout. Rather than have a menu at the top or on the side that stays the same on every page, the homepage will have one big graphic and a few menu items next to it, all images. Clicking the images will cause a page to open up that displays the related content. (We may do this as an internal page, or as a popup.)
It's sort of like a splash page that you can click to view more details.
I've been looking at existing themes and frameworks, and most seem to follow the standard Wordpress blog-y layout, but I know that in recent years Wordpress has been making a change to become more of a general CMS, and that is how I would like to use it here. I haven't found any, yet, that promote themselves as being particularly good for this type of "splash page" type of site, but I expect there must be some out there that I could modify to achieve the right result. I just don't know which one to start with and I'm afraid that if I pick the wrong one, I'll end up doing a lot of extra work to get the layout like I need it.
Can you recommend themes or frameworks that would serve as a good starting point to create the type of website that my client is envisioning?
Thanks in advance. :)
