Blog contest - I need a new banner (Ends Nov 15)
« on: November 09, 2009, 09:56:53 PM »
Hello, fellow HAF members. I am gearing up for this Christmas season, as I am sure we all are, in doing so I want to make some changes to my shop. The biggest change is a new banner. Because I am terrible at making decisions I want to ask for your opinion and in return I will give away a bookmark from my shop to one lucky follower. (Details in blog article)
All you need to do is go to my blog www.invernessstudios.blogspot.com, become a follower and tell me which banner would grab your attention. The drawing will be held next Sunday, November 15, 2009. Thank you so much for your help.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

It won't let me comment - says comments are restricted to team members?
So here's my opinion,

#1 Is nice but it doesn't flow well- the eye stops and starts the background words don't do an adequate job connectig the elements.

#2 is too cutesy I think you'd be limiting your target group to teens and early twenties

#3 Is cool but very masculine/regal - may not be appealing to all women

#4 I like the most - It's classy and sophisticated yet fun and the swirls seem to draw the eye around the piece connecting the two elements

# 5 Really cool and simple -which is good but the shadowy hand gives a paranormal feel to it - which may not be what you're going for.

Just my opinion -

Looking forward to your new lines!!!

Thanks Heather. I fixed the comment part, but I have you on the list so unless you really just want to go back you don't need to. I will tweet again that I fixed the problem (a stupid box was checked). Hopefully I did not loose too many people because of the silly box.
I totally agree about the first 3, you said what I was thinking, but have not been able to put my finger on it. So far it looks like 4 is winning as well.

Thanks everyone who helped out. No. 4 won, you can see the new banner on my shop right now, I have to resize it for the blog, but hopefully it will be up by this weekend.

Mods, you can close this thread. Pretty please. Thank you. (not sure how to do it, is it the 'lock' box)
