New Banner!

Original Banner

Got tired of the old banner that was really cobbled together without any thought, and was supposed to be temporary until I could work something out.


…cut to a year plus later…

I finally took some time off to cobble together a new banner that’s more professional looking with Photoshop/MSPaint. (^.^)

Non-Blog Ver.

Blog Ver.

Stuck with the ‘classic’ fonts, Forte and Monotype for the main title and Magneto for the other text. Again, classic Actar’s Reviews colors with the Red and Yellow. Instead of a boring monochrome gray background, decided to make the background the iconic Ryou High School shot from Lucky Star. I do believe it turned out pretty well as the words stand out nicely without the background making things too complicated.

Hope to continue to use this for the foreseeable future, until I get my own site. (^.^) What do you think of it?

    Big improvement over last one, especially with text visibility (color).
    However, I feel the background image and Konata’s eyes(?) look bit washed out.
