Topic: New Background

I was getting tired of my old background, so I was going to start looking for one, and then instead, I decided to design 1. I used one of my favorites verses, James 1:19-20. I didn't spend a whole lot of time on, but I was just wondering what you guys thought!

Re: New Background

My first impression of design: font styles showcase.  That said, I mean, the different font styles are distracting me from your main purpose.  Personally prefer a background other than pattern.

Re: New Background

yeah, me too. personall speaking, background is not as significant as pattern to me when it comes to font styles showcase.

Re: New Background

Ok, I see what you guys mean. I might try and rework it sometime this week. I have never really done anything like this, always have done web stuff so it's fun to experiment a little bit.

Re: New Background

I would recommend not taking up the whole space with your words, but doing more with your background and then allowing your verse to take "stage" in a smaller area. it allows it to be better read and allows for your icons to sit on the page and be easily seen.

Here are 2 different ones I've done. one is my favorite saying and the second is our staff values, the staff values always sites on my secondary screen so I can remember them in case our pastor quizzes us again wink All and all I change my main screen every other week or so.
