Graphic Request
« on: March 14, 2012, 08:00:22 PM »
Hello Budgie.

Chris at http://gateway2capecod.com has designed my site graphics and he mentioned that you might be able to design a banner for it. He did a great job on my site but the banner needs a professional touch. My site address is http://indiantrailweather.com. For basics, I would like the banner to match Chris's colors/gradients that he has used. "Indian Trail Weather" should be centered in the banner. On the left side of the banner I would like a graphic of a mailbox which on the side of the mailbox is written "Hessville, New York" and on the right side of the banner, a graphic of an anemometer.                                                                                        "USA"

Kindly let me know if you might be able to create such a banner and any other info that you might need.

"USA" should be below and centered under "Hessville, New York".

If you could blend in the USA flag similiar to the "Avon, MA, Allie's Weather", http://allietheweathergirl.com
would be an extra bonus.

Thank you.

Jeff

Because of the images I found I had to swap the mail box & the anemometer around. Also, as the mail box already has "U.S Mail" on the door, I put the "USA" in the middle of the main text instead.

See what you think of the attached.  :wink:

Budgie,

It looks just great !!! You truly do beautiful banners... Please just add a "period" after the "A" in "U.S.A."

Perhaps the font size for the U.S.A. should be slightly smaller than the "Indian Trail Weather" font size to emphasize the "Indian Trail Weather". What do you think?

Thanks for the super time response.

Jeff

How about this one?

I altered the U.S.A. font size, added the period and the main text font size is a little larger and it's now in bold.  :wink:

Hello Budgie....

as usuall Great Job with the hessville,Ny-Indian trail weather Banner.

I am also in need of your services. I am going to be moving out of this town of West Wareham, which I have lived in for about the past 18 years to a Town about 15 miles  north of here named "Middleborough"  see attachemnt below for location of where it is, as compared to Wareham...west wareham, Carver and Plymouth.

What I need you to do is take my exsiting banner and remove the "West Wareham"part and in it's place put "Middleborough" using the same fonts, and text and colors as it is now.

you can either try doing it as "Middleborough, Mass. Weather"...or if it needs to be shortened to fit go with "Middleborough, Ma. Weather"

Thank you...Chris

hello Budgie...

Thanks for quick reply and work. I placed new/middleborough banner on my server but it is a little short. The dimension is 770 by 85, where the original one/west wareham..is 800 by 85...see attachment below of screen capture I took to see what I mean.

so if you could make the middleborough banner 800 by 85, that would do it.


Thanks...Chris

Not to cause more work for Martin, but do you really want Ma and not MA  (maybe in a smaller font)?

(I cringe everytime I see Calcium, USA).
