Ok but another thing is that the home page banner has the plane touching the H and is too close to the trees. Can you make the plane smaller and move it farther from the H?

Also, what are those yellow circles near the passport? They look strange. Maybe take them out or replace them with something better.

I put the plane there on purpose because it gives the image depth and makes it look interesting. I think the plane looks good, but I changed it anyway. I changed the passport out to another one. Honestly I like the plane bigger and more surreal looking.


So hows this look:

That's better, but now the plane is too small. Can you make it a little bigger and just move it closer to the top left corner? That way, it won't be so close to the trees. And it will signify the concept of "flying there".

Also, what is that white space to the left of the passport? Maybe you can put images of passport stamps or postcards or foreign coins?

The planes fine, it's landing. I can change the passport and add some stuff. Right now there's open passport with stamps but it's too small to see maybe foreign coins is a good idea.

The plane is important. It is a symbol of going overseas. But it's hard to see in that banner. Can you make it a little bigger and slide it to the left slightly?

For the home page, since I need the banner longer in width, I can just add some exotic photos to the left and right of it.

How much larger? Give me dimensions, no do not just add to the sides like that you will ruin the clean look. I
moved the plane.

Maybe make the plane 10 percent larger? Just a little bit, then move it to the left a little to give it more breathing room. That's all. Then it will be done.

I have too many windows and programs open on my mini-laptop now and don't have enough memory to open Skype. :P

Ok that's perfect. I'll use it. The currency at the bottom looks good too. Can you create a version for FB too?

Send me your PayPal email. I'll be glad to send you a reward for this. :)

Maybe you can help design our buttons, t-shirts and bumper stickers too, so we can sell them. :)

I'll put it on the home page on my next update. I'm working on that and multiple stuff right now.

Btw, I've decided not to put this banner on the blog. I figured that since it's already going on the home page, the blog should have a different banners. So I used one from Walt Goodridge for the blog. And besides, the blog looks better with a longer thinner banner anyway. I did use yours for our Facebook page though.

Do you think the banner would look better with a subtitle? For example, something like this:

Discover A Better Life and Love Beyond America!
Discover A Better Life and Love Overseas!

It could be in yellow and under the Happier Abroad title. Or would it be better to put a subtitle under the banner altogether, so as not to obstruct the image?

Eurobrat,
Do you think this woman would look good on the banner? Doesn't she have an elegant face? I got it from the Elenas Models home page.

The resolution is kind of poor, it's a small photo. The images I'm using now are from your dating site.

It looks good but all the pictures around it ruin the design and make it cluttered. You really need to watch some videos on proper web design and site layout or take a class or something. You seem to know all about banner layout why can't you do the same for the homepage?
