    Looking for help with graphics

    I am making a new site for some friends and i would like a graphic at the top. It needs to say New Horizons Youth Group, or New Horizons.. something like that. Its going to be mostly viewed by teenagers, so something that maybe grabs their attention more would be nice. I would like the back round to be clear so it would blend in with the other background. If anyone could whip up something that would be awesome.
    thanks
    jack

    What in turn would represent the group best? What Icon, picture, image or photo?
    Any type of Art that would be close to what your group dose?

    size.. im really not that great with pixel sizes, uhm i'd dont want it to take up the entire top of the page .. i would say about the size of viper's sig would be nice.. maybe a tad smaller.
    the back round is going to be a light blue, and im probably going to put a picture of the sun logo as background too.

    I've got no graphic skillz whatsoever, but I think that if the logo is going to be in the background, then it wouldn't be a bad idea to use something original for the title graphic. I personally find webpages that simply have a subdued logo tiled in the background to usually be less than attractive... It looks good sometimes, but unless there's a strong brand recognition, I rarely see this technique used in a way that I like.

    Re: Looking for help with graphics


    I got bored and threw this piece of crap together in around 5 minutes. The background is grainy, the font sucks because I lost all mine in the reformat, the layer effects on the font got jacked because I picked the worst possible background to work with, and the raster effects blow ass.

    Given more time maybe I'll try and make something less crappy, but I figure you might want to give more input on what you want it to look like (placement, etc).

    On second thought, I probably shouldn't even post this, but it's late and I'm not thinking straight.

    Re: Looking for help with graphics

    what about having the words "New Horizons" textured to be the horizon and having a sun rising over it?

    I am not good w/ graphics, but someone could give you an example.

    make the words be in the water................




    I wish I was a photoshop guru...................


    on second thought, even having the words come up over the horizon and the bottom of the letters be part of the water... like a reflection of the top part... (look at "the dead zone" logo.....)

    Never heard of The Dead Zone, so I had to look it up. Is this the logo you're talking about?
