Blog Banners Vote
Posted 21 March 2011 - 05:58 PM
When we started the blog on January 1st, it was to check out the need for a frontpage of 'our own'.
Since then we've had plenty of hits and now we're at 160 views per day and going upwards.
Now we begin phase 2.
The plan is to tweak the theme to suit our needs a little better.
As you might have noticed, we've been testing out different banners for a few weeks.
We asked the Fellows to do some for us and now it's time to pick your favorite one.
Which will be featured as the blog banner the next months.
We do plan to use all of them as the result ended up being pretty awesome.
Voting ends on 28th of March at 2100 CET
Vote and then explain in a post why you picked that banner to participate in a raffle for a surprise.
Here's the list to vote from:
Def's Banner 1
Def's Banner 2
LuxorV's Banner 1
LuxorV's Banner 2
LuxorV's Banner 3

In the end I chose Luxor's first one, mainly because it was subtle and not too flashy. I do wish that the blue coloring used for the eurobricks stars in his third banner was used on his first as well, I think out goes better with the ghost theme than the green.

I chose Rufus' Banner - I love the way Maul's lightsaber creates a perfect background for the text. The figs on the right are beautifully composed while they appeal every SW fan there is (Clone Wars, Prequels, OT), and thanks to the death star, which continues the line of the eb stars perfectly, the left side isn't too empty either. The stars & text which blend very well with the overall design make it easily recognizable as a eurobricks site - in my opinion the perfect way to decorate the blog

Cause this one has the most iconic character of the SW Universe : Darth Vader.
Other banners are very well deisnged, but they have some characters who are not representativ of the Star Wars Univers.
Star Wars, it is the story of Anakin Skywalker/Dark Vader.

Personally, I prefer Brickthing’s banner. Reasons being, It’s simple, without clutter. The text are placed in easy-to-read areas, not to mention that the colours go well with one another. At a glance, you don't get 4-5 different elements fighting for attention.

I really like def's second which ties in very well with the new box art. LuxorV's second is my favorite. The sober color scheme and the three ghost figs turned out really great. His first and third are really well-designed as well, but a little crowded in my opinion. I like Brickthing's banner for the same reason (simple, clean color scheme).

Though, I was close to voting for CloneO'Patra's simply because he used the classic yellow skin tone for the minifigs.

It's because I really like the way it looks. The glowing EB star is a really great alternative to the original one. I love the planet in the corner cause it's a really nice nod to the way the starting of the films are laid out. The Slave 1 is a really iconic ship and that paricular slave 1 set I love. I really like the backlighting on the title it's a really good way to frame the title and look awesome too. Darth Maul is giving a really evil stare and Maul is a memorable character from the prequels. The tagline is put in a good place too cause it's not really in the way but still visible.
I know I'm the only one voting for this particular design but I love it!
