“How do we design our header / masthead / banner / flag / logo?” Here’s a good question we get a lot. Wondering how to put your unique stamp on your site? This is a pretty simple answer, as far as we’re concerned. You can do it yourself, or you can hire us to do it for you.
Check out our detailed tutorial on designing and installing a fantastic header image and read on for more inspiration.
Take a deep dive into our client list, our Award Winners, and you’ll find a bunch of great ones. Many strive for a look that screams modern professionalism. We don’t blame ‘em. But you shouldn’t be discouraged from having some more fun with yours.
Here are some ideas…
Use a photo of your student section
Awfully specific, we know. But you know the great thing about student sections? They’re probably color-coordinated. Here are two examples courtesy of Leander High School and Cathedral Catholic High School:
We also see many headers with various school buildings in the background. A photo’s a photo.
Make it a GIF, obviously!
Use a patterned background you just want to reach out and touch
Use ALL THE COLOR
Change it as seasons and holidays pass
You just have to trust us on this one. Go to the HiLite’s site today, then return around Halloween, again sometime in December, then specifically on Christmas, then on Valentine’s Day, then again a couple months later, you get the idea.
