I’m working on a new banner with Peter from Logos for websites. What do you think about this one?
I got some feedback that the image is too generic, but I can’t find any nicer pictures at the moment. I’ll keep this in mind and continue to look for something more unique. Meanwhile, I’m going to stick with this picture that I took when we visited Krabi, Thailand for now. I looked on Flickr and it seems all the beach sunset pictures are very similar. There are a few really great pictures, but they are not creative common so I can’t use them.
The other option is to get rid of the sunset. What kind of picture should I use? I love the beach and really want to use it. Maybe I should try white sand beach and turquoise water instead? With palm trees?
I’m going to try some new themes this weekend as well. So you may see some different things here and there. The current theme is Twenty Ten, a generic free theme from WordPress. I like the simplicity, but it’s probably time to find a more eye catching theme. I found out the Twenty Ten theme has a sunset picture that is similar to the banner so that’s one reason why some people think they have seen it before.
A few more banner options.
