The New Nihon Review Banner
« on: November 24, 2005, 11:22:45 PM »
What does everybody think of the new banner for The Nihon Review?  

I like it.  The red color is a nice change from the light blue from before and the stock image looks great.  The feathers are a nice touch, although the closest one is a bit much.  Overall, I have to take my hat off to Pheld for this one.

I think its nice, you're right it is good change from the Light Blue AMG banner. The background is nice, the NihonReviews name sticks quite well (doesn't get absorbed by the background) and I feel that the feathers are a good addition to it.

Looks of serious win and gold, in my opinion.

Looks good guys, I like the name too.  Sorry I havn't been around much lately, my work load has increased as the semester has been coming to a close.  I promise to come back no later than the beginning of semester break which starts in the middle of December.  If all goes well, I'll be back sooner.  If you guys want me back that is, if you don't I'll understand.  
                                              Cya around guys,

Hey, i sympathise with that, my workload has increased a bit now that the first semester is coming to a close. With all the assignments which need to be done (i still have to start researching DNA profiling for my FS presentation),and there's always the exams after the break, oh dear....

I'd happily welcome you back, but if you don't have time, then you don't have time. You shouldn't force yourself.

Anyone have any ideas for a new logo? We're planning on having a handful of them, so they rotate with every new page. Also, keep in mind that we will be doing season/holiday-themed banners, meaning Christmas banners will be up in a few weeks. My suggestion for a new, non-holidy logo at the moment is to have one that features Japanese stars, musicians, actors, composers, directors, etc. People who can easily be recognized. We've never had a banner outside of the anime theme, so it would be a fantastic (and necessary, IMO) change.

For a start, this page you might be able to use, it profiles a fair number of Japanese musicians (according to the sidebar it profile others as well). As i know nothing of japanese artists you can judge how useful the page is...

We need hot japan womans!

That's just my opinion though.  Isn't Pheld currently working on a Pillows banner as well?

Bumping old topics makes me think of dirty things.

I think we need to look at the possibility of a rotating banner.  Seeing the same banner over and over on every page will eventually get tired.  Having a rotating banner keeps it fresh.

I have a plugin installed, I'm just too lazy to make new banners. That and I'm really lacking in the computer department seeing as how I don't have one anymore. LOL.

I like that idea. Rotators are pretty awesome, and if I hadn't lost my account to that one site, my avy would be a rotator. I love 'em.

Maybe we should put the sigs we use up there, that way the site has more of us in it.

No, that would be just strange. :D When it comes to a site banner, we take it a lot more seriously than our signatures. There's more care put into it. Now unless our signatures are good, then it's all right. But most of our signatures have our names stickied on it...not good!

Another thing is dimension...which speaks for itself!

I swear, I just thought about this yesterday w/o reading this thread. Strange.

But let's try to get this going soon. We just need some graphic banners right?

I think we should mesh images from the animes mentioned in "2005: A Year in Review". Then link the banner to it.

Of course, after awhile, we would have to change it.

It would be super cool if we could get different HTML tags for each different banner. Like say one banner advertises the 2005 year in review and another advertises a recent editorial/review. One thing to note though is that we are more than an anime site. Therefore, we should have banners that reflect this: manga banners, music banners, banners of famous composers, banners of random japanese things (Pocky? Tokyo?).

I think a picture of Abikihara would be cool, then faded images of all the above placed in it.

Oh yea. Forgot. But black and white banners are still cool. I know that I would make one.
