New Banner images - Orion Pobursky - 2020-07-29

I'm working to create a documentation sub section of the main site. I don't remember who did the one you see at the top of all of our pages. If the original author or someone else wants to create new colors for us that would be great:
Currently we have:
Red: Centralised LDraw Resources
Blue: LDraw Discussion Forum
Green: LDraw Parts Tracker
Yellow: LDraw Parts Requestor (Not in use)

I'd like three new ones:
LDraw Wiki
LDraw Documentation
LDraw Official Model Repository

Note the "tm" in the upper right corner. That is required. Colors are up for discussion. I'd like the final product to be as close to the original as possible. Any substantial redesigns will be entertained but they will also need to be discussed by the community at large. The final product needs to be fairly high resolution as I'm looking to do printed material (like new LUG banners) as well

Will also need new favicons and just the fade-in brick in the new colors.

Do you want them transparent (.png as they are right now) or with a solid white background?

Yes. Transparent as they are now.

Before I continue with the others, would this be a good starting point?

The font appears to be Tahoma (or at least the closest I could find). This is only 10% of the size from the original image I'm working with and it has not been optimized for web.

I like it but I'll let some of the other web admin team weigh in.

Alright, it is easier to see and discuss, than to imagine. Here are some banner suggestions, I tried to stay within the basic colors. Everything can be edited so criticize away.

I made some slight changes to some wording, please let me know if this is allowed or not:
  • Added "official" to the wiki
  • Removed "LDraw" from the OMR
This was done so that they fit, look better, and are readable. Again, everything can be edited, this are just suggestions for community consideration.

I like them all. Awesome work.

maybe we should remove "LDraw" from all of them except the main red brick. Thoughts?

Another idea would be to have the colored brick without "LDraw.org" for the sub-domains since they'll always have the red brick banner in the upper left.

Line them too! I would let LDraw.org as brick+LDraw.org is our visual identity. But I would indeed remove the redundant LDraw in sub domain name.

Here's a crude mockup of what I mean for this:

Note: This just my idea, I'm open to almost anything that isn't a radical change.


I'd still like to have both (with and without ldraw.org) in case we ever change our minds.
