default FINDING A NEW GRAPHIC FOR OUR BANNER

Post by melodiccolor on Sat May 05, 2012 10:29 pm

How would you like our board to look? I am thinking it is time for a fresh look; so feel free to submit images you think will fit our banner.

Keep in mind that the colors of the board will change to go with it so think of what you want to see when you're reading too as some colors can be harder on the eyes than others.

The theme should be connected (at least loosely) to the concept of dimension, or HSP. Also I will be asking for permission to use any images selected so keep that in mind too. I am honoring copywrite.

After people are done submitting entries, we will all vote on the one we want. I expect this will be like the old days when we were building the board, rather wild and unexpected! big grin

That works really well too. There's going to be some hard choices before this is over.

It does have a tranquil ethereal feel.

Ok, I like all the ideas so far and it will be tough to choose. But if I'm not too late I want to post my suggestion that I think is PERFECT for us.

It isn't flashy but it combines two themes that seem to be reoccurring in our board--the universe and sombreros!

Let me introduce to you the Sombrero Galaxy! No it's real! I do believe that this was probably our original home and we should immediately begin plans to get back there. Extra Happy




Here is the HubbleSite page on the Sombrero Galaxy:

Oh, I like that one too. Until we vote, it is not too late to add new entries. We won't have copywrite problems with it either.

I like them all. But I particularly like Nucky's second one. There's something about it, that draws me to it. It's a doorway to another 'Dimension'...Get it? Very Happy

Here's some I've found. Not sure whether these would be appropriate though ....But they are cute. I still like Nucky's second one though. Smile

Reviving this with one more sombrero galaxy image with some cool photoshopping. I really like this one for our banner.
