I need a few banners for our upcoming website, which is essentially for a charitable purpose.
The design needs to have a positive and uplifting feel to it; it should convey a sense of "life", "community/ neighbourhood", "charity" or "giving"; it should be simple, but professional looking (kind of like Google logo designs); bright/ colourful is good, but nothing hard on the eyes (i.e. no neon colours). It should have a white background, but I am willing to look at other colours for background as well.
Ideally, the design should incorporate the logo (minus the text "Awliya" of course) into the actual graphics/illustration/images if possible (see attachment for example - I want something a little more sophisticated, and less cheap looking, or childish).
The logo can be used in any colour. I do NOT want any actual real images/photos of people, places, things, etc., but rather I WANT drawings/illustrations, art work, of people, children, seniors, buildings/homes, parks, etc. NO stock photos or clip art please! Symmetrical looking designs are preferable.
Please note, that "Community Services" should be deleted from the logo. Apart from the design/art work itself, all that should appear is the graphic of the heart/star shape and the text "Awliya" centred underneath, not "Awliya Community Services" as in the attachments.
The main logo itself should be in the centre of the banner.
The font of "Awliya" can be changed, but I do not want anything fancy/elegant looking. The font has to be simple, bold, professional, clean cut looking.
The website borders will be some shade of blue, so please keep that in mind in choosing your colours.
Finally, the width of our website is 768 pixels -- I'd imagine any banner with of approx. 700 pixels as the width and 117 pixels for the height should fit in nicely.
