235x150px right-hand side artwork vignettes

Postby clem » Thu Jun 04, 2009 7:48 am

Hi,

If you look at the main page of the website you can see the on-disk logo on the right hand side. It's 235x150px.

I'd like to get similar artwork, and in the same size for:

- What is Linux Mint?
- Why choose Linux Mint?
- Get Linux Mint 7 "Gloria" (download, get it, that kind of thing).

Basically I want don't want to show the on-disk artwork all the time anymore, I'm thinking of randomly showing all of the above as well.

If you can help in producing such artwork, please do not hesitate (I'm pretty bad when it comes to artwork so I'm relying on the community a lot for this) :)

Thanks,
Clement.

By the way, it doesn't need to look exactly the same. What I mean by "similar artwork" is just to make sure it would integrate nicely with the rest of the website.

Ok, that's great. I randomized it and included your two vignettes. RichyRich, I modified yours a bit (added "Download now" at the bottom" and gave it a "darken-only" semi-transparent gradient background layer). I still think it can be improved, but it looks good already.

You can now see the result on the main site. Thanks for the help and for being so quick :)

Cool, I like them, but the what is banner has a weird extra box around it that the others don't (on the website, not this forum).
If you have a question that has been answered and solved, then please edit your original post and put a [SOLVED] at the end of your subject header
Hint - use a google search including the search term site:forums.linuxmint.com
