David asked me to update the new CTB banner to compliment the new changes here on CTB.

The Banners are the same but they do have subtle differences: 1.

2.

3.

4.

I like the subtleties of just having the Jumbotron only in color myself. Not sure if any of you guys watched the HBO series The Pacific (Tom Hanks' 2nd installment- of Band of Brothers was his first). The sepia colored players reminds me of the opening credits.

#2...is clean. #3 is a bit messy and the CTB gets lost.

One thing I forgot to mention is that any banner can easily be changed. All I have to do is reduce the opacity or put a semi-transparent layer on top of the background to make the title pop.

Thanks Dunc!

Is there a version without a shadow behind the text and no italics? It might look a little more clean.

^^ That's the official font from the Clippers. Those are the official colors of the Clippers. I was given a spreadsheet from Clippers.com with all the logo and color information. Changing it would make it look more like a signature than a website banner. IMO

By the way, the shadow was used ONLY used to make the text stand out. I don't like using shadows on text ( Hate it) but I was limited with the actual size. The new banner will be 50% smaller. We have to keep that in mind.

can you change bledsoe with gallinari? lol

they all look good, joe. im gonna vote #2 since the colors of the forum's interface are pretty subdued as it is. vibrant color on a banner might mess with that feel. either way, though - they're all fantastic.

#3 for me. All of us have different monitors and that can affect how these look and it might be why we all have a different opinion.

You nailed it. That was the look and feel I was going for. I wanted to give it a semi-tattered, worn feel to it. Kinda like an old painting/drawing on rice paper.

Kinda helps that I majored in commercial art for 2 years. Very Happy

I like 4 personally as it's a bit larger and would fill in the top of this web page a bit better. I also have big favoritism for #2 as well. I like the shading and the little use of color.

HOWEVER, I wouldn't put a new banner up until after the trade deadline. Baron and/or Kaman could be traded. And I'd also get a new banner in place after the summer is ended because either one of those guys I named, could be gone and we could get a nice draft pick.

Great work overall, I'm loving it.

yeah, you're right. EJ's pic had better resolution than the rest. Just have to apply a bit more exposure and grunge it up a bit more. The final banner will be revised.

Should Gomes or Foye or Aminu go up there instead? I'm not so sure. As much as I am iffy on the trade, Mo Williams is going to an important piece so definitely he needs to be in it to replace Baron.
