fedoraproject.org banners

The content area on fedoraproject.org right now is not that blingy. Due to particular bandwidth issues, we put small screenshots up that are less interesting than they could be if they were a bit larger. Here’s an idea for a replacement; I think it would be cool to have large banners like gnome.org:

  1. if your going to use those screenshots in the top one, doing something about the aliasing would be nice.

  2. Reflection

    Hey, the reflection should go into the same direction as the fedora one. Also, I think it would look better if the left edge of the screenshots were 90° aligned.

  3. Maírín, they’re beautiful!

    Such banners are wanted by me 🙂 .

    They’re great 🙂 !

    You only should do something with screenshots, but the “fedora” text is awesome!

  6. looks nice…

    …but the geometry is disturbing. The point concerning the reflections was already mentioned. What looks somewhat disturbing is that you are using parallel projection, while the more common setup would be to use orthographic projection. Also the vertical edges are slightly aslant. But you already stated that it is only a mock-up.

      Hey Christian,

      I think you hit the nail on the head – the screenshots are isometric while the background is orthographic! 🙂 I didn’t realize that, thanks for pointing it out!
