Just some pre-festivities fun; some banners I knocked up (not a "concept" :D ):

Edited. People get so worked up or "offended" over nothing.

Too feminine for my tastes. Thanks for the effort, though. I'm sure some will take advantage...

"Feminine"??

:confused:

well there's no transparency, and since you went along with the theme the invitations used you should've made the colors transparent, like in the invitation.
Also, for the last banner, you can barely see the 7 because it blends in with the color of the banner. And I think it's clear now Apple's whole design philosophy is changing towards minimalist, just like its hardware. (Thanks Jony! :D)

Hang on - who said I wanted transparency?

I was wondering the same thing.

Can't have those banners casting aspersions on my super macho, manly man, masculinity.

People might think...well...you know!:eek:

:rolleyes:

Maybe it's the old insecurity about bright colours and rainbows that some people have; someone once told me that because I had a rainbow umbrella... I was "gay"...

Odd reactions... :----/

...and so you hit him with your purse!

BA DA BOOM!

Cheap, easy joke...showing no class on my part.

This whole business of colors being gender specific strikes me as...dopey!

Just a day ago one of the nurses told me I must secure in my masculinity because I was wearing a pink dress shirt. Really!?

But it's true, I'm so butch I don't have to worry about those things.:cool:

Or perhaps I just don't like the color purple... I did, in fact, say "for my taste" and not everyone else's.

It's not what you want, it's what Apple wants. :apple:

Fair enough, and sorry if I mis-understood you :)

It doesn't matter anyway - these are FAR from perfect.

Only thing is, it seems to go against everything iOS 7 is rumoured to be. The banners have a rainbow gradient, drop shadows, glows, embosses.

Noting like Apple's flat, stark banners they put up yesterday.

Maybe try actually trying less if you see what I mean?! Then they'd look much better.

Just my 2.

I think a few people are missing the point here; I'm not trying to emulate the official Apple artwork except for the colours, which I love.

I have the cool new 7 banner as wallpaper on my iPad but iOS applies this stupid gradient to it so the bottom third is gray, not white. I hope the get rid of that in iOS 7. If I want a white background, I want it white, not gray. :rolleyes:

Exactly! People are nutty these days about making some weird impression and in doing so, they look silly.

Yes, because an umbrella that isn't one solid color clearly sends a message. To me it says, "****, I don't want to get wet!"

Good work on the wallpapers.

Thank you, that's very kind of you :)

That's true, as part of the sentence "too feminine for my tastes". Selecting the words carefully, are we?

And, of course, you have every right not to like the color purple. It was the reason you gave for not liking the color purple (the whole sentence) that generated the teasing.;)
