All right, me and Torque have spent the past hour or so working on a new title banner for the site, and while we've come up with a few nice ones... but being United Bimmer, we're opening it to the public.
is the PSD (photoshop file) for the current banner.
The new banner needs to be 823px by 52px to fit perfectly.
The right side of it needs to fade to the gray gradient currently in the header, so people with resolutions bigger than 1024x768 will not see a big gray block there suddently after the image ends.
It needs to have the title of the site, United Bimmer, (obviously, haha), and the slogan: United We Drive.
For fonts, we used MGS2 Menu, found here
. Some other good fonts can be found here
, including Ethnocentric, the font used in the current header.
For colors we're thinking a silver or blue. It has to go with the current blue/white theme now, but silver is nice because it allows us to change that later without having to redo the header. We tried a few all silver headers, and decided some color was needed, so we added blue. haha. Colors are pretty much up to you guys though.... whatever would look good and flow with the current site.
Here is the backgroud we ended up liking, though the background is obviously up to you. We thought the e46 m3 would be a nice choice most people would agree with (not bangle and not old school): Link
Here are some ideas we had (some decent, some good, some horrible, lol)
And here's the psd for the lastest photoshop (number 2): Link
I can't wait to see the responses.
Edit: And if we do any more work on it ourselves, we'll post ideas/changes/drafts here.
