New Banner

Postby mariners100 » Sun Jul 27, 2008 1:24 pm

Got a new banner for my team... what do you guys think?

I went old school and only put college pics on it.

BTW, KFFL is our league (Keeper Fantasy Football League) not the website.

It's definitely "retro." Not just with the players being in college uni's but the overall feel of it, the color combo, the small renders and the font. Like me you look like you're still pretty green when it comes to sig making...no?

I would try to blend the players a little better with the background. They seem to stand out too much. Also, the background is a little too much. Try a more simple BG and put some stock images in there (buildings, landscapes, etc.) and set them to different blending options (overlay, soft light, etc.). You could also do this with the players also. ;-D

I fool around a little bit with the banners but i dont spend a ton of time on them.... Too much work and not enough time.

Thanks for the comments though. ;-D

first off...nice layout. you got a lot of stuff in there and it still works. nice choice to have the players moving towards the trophy...it makes it the focus. ;-D

the background is the main problem. not neccessarily the effects, but the colors. they contrast each other and the rest of the players pictures so much that its distracting. if you toned it down..or say made it 2 tones of the same color like light and drak green instead of green and red...it would help a lot. id also change gores name to black to make it uniforn with the other names. ;-D

not too shabby though...keep it up ;-D
