Int Website - New Look - Contributions wanted...

Post by jimc » Mon Aug 29, 2011 10:49 pm

I'mjust working up a slightly different look for the interim international front page - http://www.intcanoe.org/index2.php - Its not very radical, but I will be giving it a selection of graphics with a random tag so it looks different on each visit/every time you refresh the browser just to give it a bit more life.

From you - or your wives/husbands/children/grandchildren/boyfriends/girlfriends/whatever - what I would like are some alternate headline graphics...
The rules are these:
Background colour of the page is RGB 255.255.203, so it must work with this
Graphic should be 630 pixels by 120 pixels
Background should be predominantly blue/blue gray
Text should be predominantly yellow
Text should feature International Canoe/International Sailing Canoe/some appropriate variation as the main content
If you use photos we need to organise copyright permission so I need at least the email of the photographer
I've knocked up two or three for you folks to do better than so fire up photoshop or whatever and go for it:-)

Easiest way to get graphics to me is probably to attach them to a reply...

PS, don't forget I'm also hunting material for the new history pages, in particular Swedish, German and post war US material. Something on the genesis of the Ac would be useful too. Draft pages start here... http://www.intcanoe.org/ichistory1850.php

Dear all,
I've put this new look live as I'm off work at the moment and had time.

I would still like better graphics than I have come up with, so please feel free to send them. Good photos for the bottom of the page also welcome, with copyright permissions or at least contacts of course...

I still need a whole bunch of info for the history pages, some of the glaring omissions are noted...

regards, Jim C

Hi Jim,
Sorry, I have only just noticed these posts. I am a freelance graphic designer and have created a possible banner for you, to your spec - except I didn't use yellow text as it seemed to clash, so opted for a crisp neutral white. Hope you like. Two shades of blue to choose from.

The photo is one of my own, so free to use.

I have been trying to attach them to this post, but the computer says no - do you have an email address I could send them to?

Kind regards
James
