New DIC site banner design

Posted 31 August 2010 - 12:29 PM

Ive had a play at cleaning the top banner of the site. skyhawk133 suggested I should post it here and see what people think of it.

I would like to change the syntax in my example but as a general idea here it is:

Logo section
Attached Image

Full length

On page

Not enough contrast to it for the text to really be easily readable. A tad too bright overall for the theme.

I have to agree with that, looking at it from work its a fair bit brighter than from home, time to spider the screens again I think.

Thanks, that was the inspiration in making one and seeing what skyhawk thought.

I like it but I'm not a fan of the inner shadow on the logo. I notice that you have a shine effect only on the left as well which looks kind of strange. Overall its pretty good though.

The shine effect works in small doses, if it was streched over the whole banner it would be a web design cliche hehe.

I agree but it seems to stop rather than fade, maybe its just my monitor.

Looks really good. Though I agree with Lemur, it looks bit brighter than what I would prefer. Still the design is neat and clean. Good job. :^:
