    Question Yea or Nea? (Banner Test)

    I was fiddling around on photoshop and came up with this idea for a slightly different banner.

    Do you guys like it, or not?

    Old:



    New?:



    To get a feel for it, I'm temp. putting it up at the top. Let me know.

    * If you don't see a difference, hold shift and click refresh.

    I like it.

    Is this permanent if all goes well?

    Myself, I also liked the one with JO on the left and Ron on the left that we had before we changed forums.

    the changes are too subtle.

    A person just logging on to PD for the first time wouldn't even notice Reggie in the logo.

    I suggest you make it more prominant.

    Maybe a big #31 banner in the background.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    The only thing that bothers me right now (aside from a small sliver or lighter gray that I'll fix in a second) is that the arm gets cut off on the top). But if no one else cares, I really don't either. Or I can find a different picture of Reggie.

    So you know, I'm not trying to re-invent the banner; I like it the way it is with the logo and the text. I wanted to add Reggie, but I don't mean to change the rest. Plus I couldn't do anything fancy if I wanted (not skilled enough).

    Right now I just want an added Reggie.

    To be honest it looks bad. The cropping on Reggie is terrible, and he doesn't stick out. I like the idea, but I'd work on that or get ajbry to help you.

    I'm going to have to agree with prule05. it just looks very amateur.

    How is it terrible? If you mean the arm, OK I guess, otherwise...

    Make the banner wider so you can include Reggies arm. Of course then you might have to re-center the Banner.

    In fact you could put more players to the left of Reggie.

    Another thought, the same banner but with different players. You could change it every once in a while or make it automatic.

    The important part (his hand over his heart) is all that matters....

    Very Nice...

    Oh Christ. Design by committee. Just go with what you like, Hicks. Unless you're going to hire an award-winning designer (and I'm talking nationally, not locally), ignore what everyone has to say and go with what you like.

    The Reggie Miller tribute is a nice thught, but he's gone. Let's move on.

    I say either leave the banner as it was or use a current player.


    But if you really wanna do it...I'm with BP, do what your heart tells you and don't solicit 47 other opinions.
    If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..

    I like the "do what your heart" tells you. It seems like we are talking about something other than a slightly new banner.

    I don't think it looks bad, but I like the idea of having it change players similar to Pacers.com. The cropping on Miller isn't horrible. Obviously you would prefer his entire body (at least from the waist up), but the point of the picture is him tapping his heart and the Indiana logo and not the finger in the air.

    I would like to have new players on the banner. My suggestion: put Reggie on it all summer until the 05-06 season starts.
