New Banner
« on: February 28, 2014, 01:22:58 AM »

Hey guys.

Thought I might toss this out there - to see if anyone would like to try their hand at making a banner for the forum here.

Current image size is 600x75px - I'd like to keep it around that size maybe a bit bigger.
I think it would have to say "Team Capri" on it, the rest would be up to you. Lets see if we can get a few, and we'll rotate through them?

Post them here!

Due to the overwhelming response I made something quick to change things up

The "temporary" banner looks alright already. 

It feels less sterile here now.  Good job.

If you heard it from an automotive forum, get a second, and third opinion.

Thanks guys. Needed a little something up there. The one I had was from when I did the 'new teamcapri' vbulletin concept page which was never really intended to be used, lol.

We could also use one for the main landing page: http://www.teamcapri.com/
Or if someone's super motivated, the page could use a re-design :D

theunnamed1, looking forward to seeing what you come up with! I have the line drawing scan from the FSM and the capri logo I can send you if you need

Have at it! This one's been up since the forum re-vamp, we could use something fresh.

Righto... thanks for the opportunity.

Q. what's the widest dimension in pixels I could use, and can I incorporate the windmill, simple machines forum text inside the banner ?.
