Ideas / Designs for a new Truth Zone site banner and slogan 11 Nov 2014 16:31 #41

I'm not sure if it works to be honest, we'll get there in the end. If anybody has any suggestions for a design or any pictures to add then I'll slap a template together. Suggestions for good slogans also welcome. Here's one or two more. I think the Gold effect Truth zone works, it's different and doesn't look tacky like plain colours do.. we don't have to go with any of these, it's just ideas at the moment, and we can work from there. each one takes about 10-15 mins to make, but time isn't an issue at the moment. I think it's best to keep the theme blue in line with the forum interface.

I'll give this a go... :) I like graphics.

IG

EDIT, just whipped this up - it's simple, overly so - quick loading and good for mobiles and tablets. only 17kb as well.



I'll do a few more.

The idea is good, but the text is too plain. Plain text looks rubbish in my opinion. It's too bland and windows 8 look if you get what I'm saying?

yes, I was going with the whole sign board theme, so the font had to be like that.

I have a very wide selection of fonts to choose from, but don't know what peeps here would like to see..I'll keep going and throw some out here.

Here's another one:

same font again lol... I'll mess with some others.

The background colour has been matched to the BG of the site (blue gradient fade) so if this one is used, you won't see the blue - only the white - it will sit nice.

IG

I thought it best to get the font style settled on first, the rest can be built around that imo.

So, I put these together quick


Your thoughts are welcome.

Just as a Suggestion I think a grey bare metal type theme would work with the Grey interface. The Slogan is a joke by the way.. but it's the truth.. :larf:

Not Bad. I think we should put some more together then let the other members vote, then access which one's we think work best. Yes? I'm working on another one at the moment. Silver and blue theme.

I think thats the way to go. :up: I think the silver - greys could work too.. of course we can put them up and see.

I also think we should lose the hyphen :wissl: between truth and zone. :thumbup:

Im liking the 'welcome to reality' slogan too.. not sure its the 'one' ( :chuckle: ) but im thinking to put this one up for a while and see how it looks?

I prefer this one to the space key one, and the slogan is better now that it's short and to the point.

hold that thought Novum, I got a little busy with the one above and...



i'm thinking of removing the text around the circle - not sure about that.

I haven't finished messing around yet, there's a still a few ideas I wanna try out, but if you wanna change for the mean time, by all means :)

Welcome to Reality - this can be changed, I just threw it in there for the time being. Suggestions welcome! :)

EDIT:

with Novum's suggested changes (no hyphen, removed text around circle[my idea])

I kinda like the welcome to reality, as BT said its short and to the point.

I think short slogans work... just do it .. etc etc.

Perhaps lose the hyphen betwen truth and zone tho. :chuckle: I think it looks cleaner that way.

I think we could go with the 'welcome to reality' slogan for now in any banner thats put up here for consideration? :ponda:

I like the radar element IG, subtle enough, but adds a bit of a dynamic flow to the overall graphic
I'm afraid anything I would come up with would still be on a bit of paper, drawn with a 6B pencil :larf:
