    Hi,

    I need a cool header with a logo for an airline travel site iwantthatflight.com.au (I Want That Flight!). You can check out the site to see what is there currently. I'm paying $100 USD.

    The header should be designed 950x90, but should be extendable horizontally. The header should also have a space for a 468x60 banner.

    I have included a demo of what the header could look like (and it has the 468x60 ad inserted), but you can come up with any design. Eg - the demo has a background colour, but I also like the header for ebay.com which has no background at all.

    I'm setting the time limit at 2 weeks, but I may cut it short if I find something I'm totally happy with - so don't wait until the last moment to submit your entry :)

    Cheers.

    Sorry - forgot to include the example.

    Note: The color chosen here is only an example - but I do prefer web 2.0 colours (light blues, greens and oranges).

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for all the entries - here is my feedback:

    webmsz - Looks great. I like the font and the colour of the 'that'. The iwanthatflight.com.au underneath needs to stand out more - I can't read it clearly. I like the sun umbrellas, but I'm not sure about the plane. Perhaps a more interesting photo of a bigger passenger jet?

    simplyg123 - I am hoping for something a bit more colourful. It might be just me, but the plane looks a bit menacing.

    Poter - This design is ok, but doesn't really stand out.

    mrpsycho98 - Very original, and it looks like a lot of effort went into it. However, it doesn't come across as 'strong' enough for me. I asked a few people, and they didn't immediately get that the text said 'I Want That Flight'

    jackieh1791 - Great design having the plane behind the text. However, the actual font & colours need to be more interesting. Also, perhaps having a different background rather than plain white would look better.


    Thanks everyone again for entering, and its great (for me!) to see the high standard of entries.

    The 2 that stand out at the moment are webmsz and jackieh179. The reason I like these 2 is that I think I could use the 'I Want That Flight!' text as a logo the way they present it.

    Looking forward to more entries :)

    Hi Everyone,

    JanineXD - I like the plane that you have got in the header background. Unfortunately, where you have positioned it means that the 468x60 ad will almost completely cover it. Move it to the left a little? The logo is very original (like a neon sign?) but I don't think it will really suit the site.

    webmsz - Thanks for making the alterations. I'm still not sure about the pic of the plane. I would prefer something like these pics:

    Then again, I also like holiday pics like this for the header:

    Hi,

    JanineXD - Sorry, I also should have said that I think the background is too dark. The rest of the design is good, though

    jackie1791 - wow, another great design. I think that the first has a better logo, while the 2nd has a better background. Is it possible to see variations on the first logo with the 2nd background?

    FattaT - Hmmm, I find these designs a bit blurry & busy. Some more colour would be good, too.

    abobby - Very cute! I like it a lot, but I think the logo part needs to be 'stronger' and more definite.

    Pkiz - You're the lucky one with the staff discount flights! I like the design - nice and clear - but I think it needs a bit more colour.

    JanineXD - Thanks for redoing the entry, However I still feel that the background is too dark.

    webmsz - Hmmm, I've showed this too a few people, and we kind of get the feeling that the black airliner is in trouble. Thanks for changing the plane, though.
