I'm looking to get a website header image designed for a sports betting website. To give you an idea of what I have in mind, check out headphones.com.au. I really like how the header image uses the existing colour palette of the website. I also like the muted colour scheme.
I have a logo that I would like to incorporate into (or next to) a sporting scene. I am open to suggestions, but two my current ideas are:
(1) Use a split scene. One half of the scene will feature a soccer game. The second half will feature a character sitting on the couch at home cheering on as he watches the game on TV.
(2) Display a sequence of characters, each playing a different sport. The site is based in Australia, so the sports would be things like cricket, rugby, tennis, soccer, golf, etc.
Including the logo, the image will be 982 pixels wide and between 120 and 140 pixels high. The finish quality should be similar to that at headphones.com.au. The current website has a light gray background with a slight gradient, so ideally the final image will be displayed as a gif with a transparent background, again much as in the case for headphones.com.au.
The scene will be fairly lighthearted. The target audience is sports betters, but I want the focus of the image to be on spectator sports and not betting. I will give more thought on a specific concept to implement, but I need someone who can inject their own creativity into this project.
Please let me know of where I can find examples of your work when you quote. If you can include your opinions and/or suggestions for the header image, that would be much appreciated.
Feel free to ask questions and request clarification.
