I need your help!

Here are four banners I've designed for my new header: Click them to enlarge them and get a better look.

Then let me know what you think in the comments.

Is there one you really like? One you really don't like?
Or do you think I should try something completely different?

I may be able to do a few more tomorrow that I could get your opinion on.
At the request of a few, I may try to make one or two that would incorporate some blue.

The banner that gets chosen to be put up will help me determine what colors to use for the rest of the site as well.
So it's in your best interest to give me your opinion since you guys will be the ones who will have to stare at it all the time....

Note to Self: Any feedback at all will be good feedback!

I like the last one best.

the notepad is classy...and really goes with your title.

The notepad would be my top vote, as it seems to go with the title of the site best (and because the background color is snappy,eyecatching, and "now")

They are all excellent though.
The gun one might be a bit scary.

i also like the notepad!

The gun one's interesting, although, umm, hmmm...

I vote against any banner containing a pair of shoes - I feel like I've seen that on a ton of blogs.

The notepad with the pencil, but I like the old text better. Life is hard learn to laugh at it......

Peter Parkour said...

I agree with Kelsee on both points. :)

MJ said...

Matt - True enough.

VV - The gun one may be a bit intimidating.

KM - Thanks for the feedback!

Aubrey - I'm seeing a pattern here...

Livin - Mkay, no shoes then...

Kelsee - Good thought...

PP - Thanks, it looks like the notepad is having the best result...

my vote is notepad.. sorry im late !!
and i like "life is head, learn to laugh at it" it really explains the blogs direction.

gun is awesome, but its not really very "note to self"-y its more like "put your hands where i can see em"-y

MJ said...

SM - Yes. I like the gun too, but like you said, maybe it's not really "Note to Self-y" enough.

Hi MJ,

Guns and martinis are manly, so either of those will do. On the other hand, if I understand the documentation correctly, I have the capacity to create animated banners, which I will be glad to attempt if you are interested.
