Default New SM Banner - Wanna Try?

SM banner -

Hello

I have a couple of people having a go on the new SM banner

If anyone would like a go then feel free to take a little pressure of your favourite Admin (hey no offence Dave but they have all told me they like me more)

Right here is the needed info

-------------------------------------

1. The dragon is available in the t-shirt competition area.

2. You will need to probably do an "auto levels adjust" in ps to brighten it a little.

3. I would like the banner to be "alike" the SLW and S-max sites... max screen shot can be found in the members area under the simply3dmax.com thread http://www.forum.simplymaya.com/show...?threadid=3929 .

4. Just need the banner - not any tables

5. Remember to keep your psd so that changes can be made.

6. The banner must be able to resize in a 800 x 600 browser.

7. I need the following names:

HOME - VIP AREA - FREE TRAINING - FORUM - SHOP - HOSTING
GALLERY - 3D MODELS - PLUGINS - SHADERS - CHAT - TEXTURES - SIMPLY CHALLENGE - FAQ

More may follow so make sure to keep that in mind

8. NO java / dhtml type dropdowns

9. NO Flash Macromedia

10. No spinning "things" or "flashing" lights

11. We would like you to add the words near the "Simply Maya words" = "A member of the Simply3dworld.com sites" or
"Part of the Simply3dworld Group"

OR a little Logo that will go on each site to represent this "community"

- but be careful with colours as it needs to go on all - In fact a logo sounds better...but hey lets see some ideas.

12. I really have to like this for it to go on - I know some of you think the site banners are "to" plain or "wrong text" etc... But I go out to a "whole range of people" and not just individuals.

The site has a big audience so keep things nice and clean, nice lines and a good layout and that’s all we need.

13. Sorry to be so bossy But it is representing not just SM now but all the other sites to - so needs to be good plus - this is your home as well as mine

14. Credits: Credits will be given for ANY work done but this won’t be displayed on the site as this looks tacky. I would have to say "Well It’s my idea but Craig done the dragon, but Dave chose the colours and bob made it link" etc... I think you get the point.

I will not have a piece of text on the site saying "designed by ******"

If anyone asks they will be told who was involved. Maybe one day a page can go up with credits on. This is by no means a guarantee but it may happen

14. Thanks for any help given

What about using the word network? Sounds a bit more .... professional?

Well, I'm not totally thrilled with these designs, but maybe it'll spark up some ideas.. I was trying to make the circle behind the simplymaya.com be a world for the simply3dworld.com logo, but not sure if that translates well. I removed it from the second one.

I tried to match the other site's banners, but I'll some others one a bit different to see what you guys think. here they are:

VERY nice work, however, will it squash and strech to fit a minimum 800x600 monitor res?

If so, cool!

(actually, the true lcd for 800x600 is actually more around: 770x420)

Thanks Rage,
I'm not sure about the 800x600 thing... what would I need to do to make sure it's possible?

I'm thinking of submitting some different desigs, but I need to know this first...

Thanks,
George
