Basically, I need someone to make this image look a heck of a lot more professional. That's just a quick banner I made to design the rest of the web site around.

All I really need is someone who knows what they're doing to take that size image, and make the lettering look much better, and add this logo. You'd have to "rebuild" the area where the top of the guy's hand is cut off, but it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Anyways, I'd appreciate it if someone with more experience than I could do this. After my last Gimp job, I never want to use it again. =P

Thanks in advance,
---Wyo

Someone's looking to start a parkour group

92% of teenagers have moved on to rap music. If you're on of the 8% that still listens to real music, copy this into your signature.

Someone already has a parkour group going, and wants to get a site up to make communication / interaction a little easier. =)

Oh, and incidentally, the videos you'll find when you Youtube "Wyoming parkour" are NOT me, they're a couple drugged-up hippies who happen to live in the same state. :S

So...will we be paid anything? It's a bit cheap to expect other people to do your graphic design work for free.

Hm, all you need to do is change the font for a cooler one?

Parkour is kewl and all as long as you ain't a noob about it. It's something that should be left to the pro's.

How can you be a pro in it if you've never practiced it? SOUNDS LIKE WE'VE GOT A LOGICAL FALLACY HERE

I've done graphic design once or twice. But as LF so astutely observed, most people will want payment. I am one of those people.

Hmm...Judging by the pictures in your Trebuchet thread, parkouring in your area might be a challenge in itself.

I'd try to fiddle around with your logo for free, but unfortunately I don't have Photoshop *cough* PaintShopPro Trial in this computer.

I could do it, but I need to know what the guy's hand is doing. Could you explain whether it's outstretched or clenched? Thanks.

Here's a "rough draft" I came up with. If you want it in black and white only, I can design it without the gray stripes. I could also do one in color if you prefer, but that could mean redoing the website's color scheme and that would be a pain so... anyway. Take a look and tell me if it's the sort of thing you're looking for.

After an hour away from it, I decided that the stripes suck.

When I first load them, they appear as a string of text (the URL), but it works after a few seconds.

Mine? If it's my picture that you're talking about, I'll try hosting it on a different server and see what happens.

Outstretched. And I can't access either of the pics either. :S

I'll have to figure out a way for it to work, but I can't see how. If imageshack doesn't work and xs.to in the post above doesn't work, what's left for me to do? Can anyone help?

Okay. Photobucket it is, then.

Here it is with the logo finished:

And in the event that you don't like tacky fonts like the one I used, here's an alternate version.

You did a wonderful job, Mungo, there will be a little something under your pillow later (me!). I do have an odd request, though... Did you rebuild the dude's hand before or after you shrunk the image down to the size of the banner? And if you did so before you shrunk it, could you provide me with a copy of the original, full-size silhouette, with the hand rebuilt?

EDIT :: Interesting story about that logo, actually. I decided that I wanted my website to have a logo that no other site on the internet had, so I figured the easiest way would be to make my own. I took this image, and turned it into a silhouette, to make sure that my site has a silhouette that no other parkour site out there uses. =D
