Topic: New Banner

It's been roughly a year since we started discussing a new banner for Phoenix, as well as the Facebook page, and with the merger moving along I think finally reaching some sort of conclusion in the matter would be a good thing. So, below you will find the banners that were made along with corresponding numbers for the poll I am setting up. Please vote for your favorite one!

Re: New Banner

#2 please.

Re: New Banner

#2

Re: New Banner

Didn't realize the poll wasn't active, but the its been fixed and added!

Re: New Banner

Unforunately, I don't like any of these. sad

I'd like #2 the best, if the additions of the Sim-themed items weren't so random, as I feel like they really don't fit well in the picture, from a graphical standpoint.

As such - I'm voting no, on all three.

Re: New Banner

Could we have "keep the old one" as an option? Personally, I like it best - it's simple and clean, and whilst these new ones are really good they're all a bit more "in your face" than it.

Re: New Banner

#2 is missing.

Now it came...

Re: New Banner

I second the idea of "keep the old one", but I have voted for #2.

I SERIOUSLY wanted to vote for #3 but the text was lacking IMO. If you took the font style from #2 and put it on the background of #3...I think that would be amazing.  big_smile

Re: New Banner

I see there's a Keep The Old option now big_smile Changed my vote to it.

Re: New Banner

Thank you for picking this up, Misty. This has been on the agenda for quite some time and it always seemed to get shoved to the back. But no longer! smile

Re: New Banner

Thank you, for adding the option to keep the old banner. Changed from vote from a verbal "no" to keeping the old.

Re: New Banner

I like elements of each of them, although #1 and #3 seem to be identical except for the positioning of the text.  I like #2 best overall, especially the font, but it looks rather too 'busy' with trying to fit in so many different representations of the sims. 

#1 and #3 are cleaner, but the Hogwarts crest just doesn't look 'right' as it is (this from a Harry Potter fan).  I do really like the 'light burst' phoenix though.

Also the Phoenix and Feather image have significantly more transparency in #1 compared to #3.

And with the above noted, I think #1 with #2 text would be my top preference if at all possible I think I'd like to see what #1 with #2 text would look like first before committing to the idea that it's my top preference. Presently though I'm in the "keep the old one" club.

Re: New Banner

I've posted an announcement about this on the blog.

Re: New Banner

That's because 1 and 3 ARE the same except for the font and font position.

This should close out tomorrow. Other info as to why there was a poll can be found:

Re: New Banner

Looks like keep the old banner just won it. I was AWOL and failed to vote, but that would have had my vote as well. :-)

Re: New Banner

Indeed. If nearly 40% of the voters want to keep it, then it probably shouldn't be changed.

What Mischa and Giorgio were looking for:

   * A header for this site

    *A logo for on this site and possibly other media

    *A banner for when we want to advertise this page on other sides

    *Exchange / affiliate buttons

Also another explanation.

And yes, it seems like we have our answer. Now comes the question on whether or not it can actually be used to give Phoenix more of a uniform look on all of our social media and the newsletter. Also needed is a profile picture and banner for the FB page, (not to be confused with the group).
