    Hey.. id rather not go into the details, but basically i am looking for help at createing some "icons" for a web site i am working on.. and maybe even a banner.

    later in this section i may post more about this project asking for feedback.

    the basic idea behind the site i am working on is that people would be able to upload images to this site and create a simple photo album. the main thing is that it would be simple, elegant, and would be simple enough for your average teenager to use..

    there are many similar services out there now, but i would like to create a more simple and elegant solution.

    i am pretty much done with the entire layout of the site.. but am working on some graphics...

    basically i want to create an icon that represents a phone and an email type logo...

    however, it has to be small.. like 18*16 pixels...

    heres what i have so far:

    regarding the banner -- i want to have something at the toop of the page.. my banner isnt very good right now.. in fact its pretty corny...

    i am thinking of just leaving it the way it is for a while.. but if anyone is interested heres what it has to conform to.. it has to be 560*85 pixels...

    it really can be whatever.. alls it has to say is "ripples" on it.. i got the actrual ripples from an apple desktop image.. i prolly may want to change that :(.. um.. the oshkosh stuff doesnt have to be on there.. im prolly gonna get rid of that totally..

    thanks a LOT for taking an iterest..

    heres what i have so far:

    Here's a banner, I'm not sure if it matches your site though.

    This whole ripples thing sounds really familliar - and I can't quite figure out why - something from many years ago. How long have you been working on this? Have you ever lived in DC?

    i think i may have posted a thread a while ago regarding the design of the site and may have posted a link to the site, when i still had it up..

    ive beemn working on it for about one year.. but very sparsely.

    if you're inetersted i could put the site online.. though id rather keep it (sort of) private..

    Why not something like this with the wave pattern inside the text?

    it was originally posted in the project forum, but I moved it here this morning.

    and firewire, I'd love to help, but unless you're going to pay me, I've got way too much to do right now. Sorry.
