W.T.O.P. Banner Request
« on: March 29, 2010, 10:42:30 AM »
Hello all, looking for a little spice to my site. We have a forum for Poker Team Members where we compete each week on the felts for 12 weeks per season. We play @ www.fearnoace.com then we meet at www.worldteamofpoker.com to set up the schedules, post the weekly results, talk a little trash etc.

Anyway, it's time to spice up our banner / logo a little, just fonts is getting a little boring and we're about to start advertising and recruiting more teams for the upcoming season.

We're looking for a nice graphical banner, something flashy and eye catching approximately 550x110

Site
www.worldteamofpoker.com
You can see what we have here, the purples and golds are the primary colors that span across multiple themes. On our portal page use the theme selector to see a couple more themes that our members use.

Text
"World Team of Poker"
"Where Poker Teams Compete on the Felts"
(not very particular about the fonts used)

Images
Can be any of the images listed, can be a combination and any images list, can be a combination of all images listed. Doesn't have to be the images below but these are just some ideas. We're pretty open
Texas Holdem' poker hands, cards, sun glasses, poker faces, people at a poker table, poker chips,  etc.

Thank you very much in advance. Looking forward to GM's creativity and genius.

Regards

No problem, figured you might need a little info  :D

Attached is a .psd of the table we play at to possibly inspire some textures, colors etc. or something to go off of. (don't use the lions as that's for Fear No Ace vs. WTOP)

Maybe even something of this nature might look very nice?

Very nice and thank you very much. The green felt might clash a little w/ our color scheme though?

The more I think about it I'm really liking the idea of an oval  poker table background with some very unique and glossy raised, shadowed or even embossed fonts for the text.

See the example in the link above and also the .zip file. Manipulating that table might be a great background?

Throwing some thoughts out there.

Thanks again

Can't wait to see some of your other ideas as well.

Hi ya

Thanks for the Zip as I can pull the styles from it

Now a question

Would it make a big issue if the size is 550x150 as it would make the oval a little more in proportion

550x150 should be fine, just trying to keep it in the header section of my site where the purple / gray gradient is. If 150 is too high I can always increase the height of my header a little or re-size the image a little and keep it proportionate.

Very nice....definitely on the right track. Not sure about the heart though, people might mistake us for a poker/dating site LOL (but you never know that might be the next million dollar idea  :D)

Something similar to this design here by DM has a lot of potential to look awesome for our theme I think using the table bg and bumper from the zip.

Thanks again everyone.

Be back in a bit.

You ALL have done a great job which inspired me to use my clueless skills and take a stab at it.

A combination of everyones post so far would probably do it LOL, they're all great!
